How Online Marketplaces Can Fix Bad User Search Experiences and Convert More


    Conversions are the holy grail for online marketplaces. Once you have a healthy level of conversions from your listings, you can start the transition from a lead generator to transactional services.  

    To get to the stage of persistent conversions, however, you must ensure high-quality inventory, return visitors and construct a smooth search experience.  

    The latter is especially important, considering that according to the Nielsen Norman Group studies, users will abandon your site within 10 seconds if they don’t find what they are looking for.
