We use it while we work and we use it while we’re home for entertainment. More than that though, we use it for shopping which is where Ecommerce comes in.

It is estimated that by 2024, ecommerce revenue will be above $476 billion dollars. While once ecommerce was considered something futuristic and strange, it is now commonplace. Any business looking to succeed has to have a web presence and an ecommerce component to their business model. Without it, they will miss out on customers and revenue.

MacRAE's has been an amazing partner to Pathway Communications for its digital marketing efforts. There we worked with Sakshi who was our Account manager. We have nothing but great things to say for her! She is extremely thorough professional and responsive to any requests we may present. She has the required expertise and experience in the digital marketing space which helped us in getting the desired results. Her team has helped increase our organic sessions on our website with continual month over month increase. Our keyword rankings have increased and we have seen so much more traffic to our website. We cannot thank them enough for all of the hardwork and effort put in to making Pathway's digital presence felt.

Good quality SEO work for my website. Monthly reports on activities comprehensive but a little complex for a non-SEO person to understand.
