Linda Bustos does the blogging over at Elastic Path, an enterprise eCommerce software platform with a broad base of customers (both retail and direct-to-consumer). She focuses mainly on the much larger eCommerce stores.
I recognize that this is a little bit different than the usual guests we feature on the podcast, but Linda’s posts are so incredibly insightful and data-driven that I knew she could provide a ton of value to the podcast. She discusses the broader trends as they’re coming down the pike in the eCommerce world.
