Electronic commerce requires quick strategies to make its products and services known, but before that it requires testing those solutions to make sure they are satisfying the target audience’s needs. This is where the MVP plays a transcendental role in the online market

For starters: What is an MVP? There are various answers to this question, its acronym stands for Minimum Viable Product. Basically, it's the initial product that is launched to push towards a final version. This prototype meets “minimum” yet essential requirements to offer what users want.

Once the MVP has launched, a transcendental process begins. As time goes by, you will gather opinions of users who acquire it, with the objective of improving, strengthening, customizing, or specializing with technological features, until you achieve the ideal product for the end consumer, whether it’s B2B or B2C.


Additionally, the Minimum Viable Product is seen as an alternative to guarantee a fast and effective ROI. If the MVP generates a truthful, assertive, and quick analysis, it’s likely the perfect product will be ready in less time, you will have an advantage over the competition, and you will obtain higher revenue. At this point, it’s also important to identify and understand what the client wants to find. 


The MVP’s success isn’t only be achieved with quality and innovation deposited on the new product, you can also achieve it with the following key points that will allow consolidating and maintaining preference towards the electronic commerce that offers it:


Implement a smart search tool


Users prefer e-commerce that offer easy searches, many of them already know what they want, or hope for an option that offers the ideal product and/or service, but can also be found with the lowest amount of clicks. This is where the search tool is key, we recommend that it be optimized with technology that can respond to searches in seconds. 


Less steps during the shopping process


The average user is more inclined toward electronic commerce due to its immediacy and the time saving aspect of it, which is why it’s important to establish a simple shopping process, with reduced steps, intuitive, and efficient. Implementing this recommendation will help reduce the 87% of users that abandon e-commerce when faced with difficulties during an online purchase (Salesforce data). 


Post-purchase experience for loyalty building


According to Salesforce, 86% of users purchase again from an electronic commerce if:


- They receive satisfactory attention after their purchase

- They feel accompanied when using the product

- Their guarantee is previously validated

- They get their order quickly

- Their questions are answered almost in real time
