Mobile Is Making Most of E-commerce Revenue, but Most Retailers Are Still Not Mobile First

Though Smartphones appear to be taking over the e-commerce platform, most retailers are still hesitant to shift to mobile-first strategies and make the most of the mobile shopping explosion.

A study on the effectiveness of smartphones in sales confirmed that a whole 55 percent of the $410 billion e-commerce made last year came from mobile sales. However, the same research also discovered that 48 percent of cart abandonment takes place during the payment stage. And that; 4 out of 5 consumers abandon the checkout process because keying in card details is annoying and tiresome.  On the other hand, this abandonment can also be linked to shopper insecurity. 1 in 5 shoppers fears exposure to identity theft when paying using their smartphones.

Shoppers also prefer having a clearer look at an item online before releasing payments. The group of shoppers that prefer checking products on the internet is 70 times larger the number of people who rush to add items to cart. As a consequence, almost 41 percent of shoppers say small screens is the reason they dislike mobile buying, whereas 28 % say mobile sites are challenging to navigate and use.

But none of these barriers could stop some of the mobile-first retailers in the market from flourishing. One similar characteristic of such businesses (particularly those that succeed) is the fact that they all use mobile apps to triumph over these sales issues and grow against all the odds.

So far, incorporating smartphone apps is the most practical and efficient way to rise above sales problems related to mobile buying. Most mobile shoppers (92 percent) prefer buying on an app than purchasing on the website. 65 percent of shoppers are more likely to buy when shopping on an app than on the web. All these factors plus the increasing dependence on mobile wallets are enough evidence of how fast the industry will continue to grow.

Final remarks

Nevertheless, it helps to understand that the approach you use in marketing your app will determine how successful you emerge. An app is only as good as the number of users it can attract.

Calculating the Amount of Hairdresser Compensation to Ask For

Suffering from hair damage is way more common than you think. Even in the hands of an expert hairdresser, things could still go wrong. If there was a mistake that left you with an injury, it can be both physically and emotionally painful.

If you have suffered a physical injury, the next step is to ask for compensation. You might have to spend a lot of money for medication. The good thing is that it is quite easy to establish that the mistake was on the part of the hairdresser since you were just basically letting him do the job.

With negligence, lack of experience and training, hair disasters could happen. As such, you are entitled to compensation. Problems like scalp irritation or even hair loss could be very damaging, sometimes irrecoverable. Therefore, the least that you can do is file a hairdresser compensation claim against the person responsible.

You need compensation

You might think that it is too much of a hassle to go through a legal battle just to ask for hair damage compensation. The truth is that you need it. You can’t just let this opportunity go. You need the money to have your hair redone. If the problem resulted in hair loss, it could require medication or even surgery to let the hair grow back. You might also end up with more time taken away from work and this could result in income lost. Since it was technically an accident that did not directly result from a work-related incident, your employer is not responsible for paying you. Most of all, you might suffer psychological stress and you might even need the help of a counsellor or therapist. This would be another expense.

They won’t give up without a fight

Once you have decided to file a claim, get ready for a battle. Hire the best lawyers to help you. The hairdresser will surely fight back especially if they also have top lawyers on their side. They might even threaten you just to drop the case. Nevertheless, a strong legal defense could boost your confidence.

If you are certain that the fault was on the hairdresser’s side and you have done nothing to deserve what happened, you should keep fighting. They might even give up along the way considering how damaging it could be for them if the incident is picked up by local news outlets.

The same thing is true for a work injury. If you have had an accident at work, you can file a work injury claim in Gloucester if you work in the area. Again, don’t be afraid if you know you are right. You will get the justice you deserve.

The Right Way to Apply Dip Nail Polish

Nail polish plays an important role in enhancing the overall personality of a woman. While there are a number of different nail polishing methods available, we recommend using dip nail polish for the amazing results it shows.

Let’s have a look at how to apply dip nail polish in the right way:

  1. Groom and Sanitize Your Hands First

There should be no traces of previous nail polish on your nail before you apply dip nail polish so use a nail polish remover (non-acetone) to wipe it clean.

Grab a cuticle pusher and gently push the cuticles back. After that, with the help of a cuticle trimmer, make sure that you remove any extra cuticles so that it doesn’t affect your nail growth.

Soak a lint-free pad in alcohol and sanitize your nails.

Rub it gently around the outline of your nails and even the underside. This removes any bacteria that’s residing inside the nail.

  1. Applying the Pro Base

Apply the pro base but make sure you do it gently and with small strokes.

Cover the entire nail including the base of the nail.

Wait for a minute and then move to the next finger nail and repeat the process.

  1. Dip the Nail into The Powder Container

Dip your finger inside in a scooping motion for 5 seconds at least. The time required depends on the nail polish you use. For example, Revel Nail products only require five seconds, but some may require more.

Take it out and give a slight tap on your finger to get rid of excess powder on the nail, make sure you do it with the other hand which is not in use.

Repeat steps 2 and 3 twice on each nail.

  1. Applying the Activator

The next step involves applying the activator on all the fingers coated with powder in the previous step.

After doing this, again apply a base coat on each nail and wipe it clean with a lint-free pad, give it a 5 second break before giving it another coat.

Make sure to use a clean brush and to take care of the base, edges and caps of the nails of each finger.

  1. File and Buff the Nails Properly

Using a soft 240 or 180 grit files, shape your nails.

You can also use a buffer to buff your nails and give it a smooth look.

Soak the lint-free pad into nail cleanser and gently wipe the nails gently.

Use a drill if there’s excess amount of powder in the cuticle area.

  1. Final Touches

Apply another coat of activator on all the nail and leave them to dry for 2 minutes at least to have a bright shine on each nail.

Apply the top coat and let it stay for 2 minutes, following with cuticle oil around the skin near the nails.

Dry your hands completely and then wash them with water.

While washing the nails, make sure you go underneath the tips and get them cleaned too.

Verdict

This is how easy … Read More
