A good conversion rate is one that’s higher than it is now.”                                                                                                       -Brandon Weaver

To know the best conversion rate for your ecommerce business, you need a baseline. What is your current conversion rate? And what conversion rate do you want to achieve in the next 30 days? The next six months? The next year?

Industry benchmarks aren’t always an accurate comparison guide. However, let’s look at some of the industry numbers so you can put your mind at ease.

The final conversion — from sales-qualified lead to actual sale — reaches nearly 30 percent.
