According to WSJ in 2016 Ecommerce accounted for 25% of all consumer spending over three days through Black Friday. That’s a huge deal, considering that Ecommerce share in all holiday retail sales in 2016 was around 10% of a market worth $885B.
If the fourth quarter is the best time of the year in Ecommerce, then Black Friday and Cyber Monday are the greatest opportunity for online retailers for a piece of that huge brick-and-mortar pie.
It’s a 2 day event on E-Commerce with great speakers, Spree success stories, discussion panels for both developers and business people and of course drinks in the afternoon.
There are thousands of Spree store owners and developers all over the world invested in Spree over the years. Thousands of stores and developers rely on a lean, flexible, extendible Spree open-source software being developed. That is a large community and a foundation of all our open-source efforts.
You want to build the Next Big Thing. And you have a pretty good idea how it should work, look & feel. Great, now it’s time to find a dev team to build your MVP. But how much should your MVP cost? A freelancer will tell you it should cost $5,000 to $15,000. An experienced CTO will tell you it should cost between $50,000 and $150,000. Which one is right? Are they even talking about the same thing? No, they’re not!
SPOILER: it will cost you $50k to develop a Twitter MVP, $100k for an Instagram, $500k for a Facebook and $1M for an Uber. US dollars when hiring a US dev team.
It’s already 2016 and it looks like a lot is going to happen in the ecommerce and startup world. Big fairs, conferences, workshops, networking, pitching opportunities and a whole lot of other activities you can attend if you’re interested in aquiring some useful knowledge and valuable connections.
The events are plenty all around the world, but we have prepared a list of the ones that we find most interesting and fun:)
How much should a Minimum Viable Product cost? How much time should an MVP take to build and launch? These are the questions our clients ask us and every time answering these questions comes down to one simple conclusion – we understand and define MVP differently. 🙂
