April 8, 2014

ChannelAdvisor hosted its inaugural User Conference last year in Durham, NC, and we discovered something interesting: 100% of attendees said they’d return.

So you may be asking yourself, how is this different from Catalyst? Well, Catalyst is our industry conference where we explore new e-commerce channels, concepts and strategies. User Conference is all about the tactics. If you are the person working with ChannelAdvisor products on a daily basis, this is the conference for you. We call it “hands-on” for a reason!

Here is a little sample of some of the sessions at User Conference, some of the tips you’ll learn and some of the e-commerce experts you’ll meet:


  • Integrated Product-Driven Digital Marketing for Retailers

  • Beginning Business Rules and Flex Feeds

  • optimising for Performance on Google Shopping

  • Branching Out to New Marketplaces


  • “Selling on eBay? Read your titles aloud. If a retail sales person presented you a product using your title, how would you react? Don’t just load your titles with keywords, tell a great story that sets you apart from your competition and is welcoming to buyers. Use your item specifics to pass eBay those keywords.”     -Selma Pittman, ChannelAdvisor Product Management
  • “Update Bid Rules! Bid Rules can be a very powerful and helpful tool but only if the data that makes up the bid rule is accurate. Over time, the triggers and ERS target will change dramatically from when you initially set up the rule. Make sure that the bid rule is reflectant of the current performance of your campaigns. Be sure to update them from time to time, especially if you are seasonal!”     -Amber Howland, ChannelAdvisor Customer Success
