Future of eCommerce: Curtis Schrum
Show Notes

Curtis is the Head of Strategy at Shero, an eCommerce growth agency focusing on Magento, Adobe Commerce, Shopify, and BigCommerce.

In his interview with Tim, Curtis explains that:

- In 5 years, there won't be much change; if anything, there will be contraction 
- In 10 years, companies will focus on tactile feel, reproducing the in-store experience with 3D, VR, AR, etc.
- BigCommerce is bigger than people think it is - they give customers a great toolbox
- On-prem isn't going away any time soon - industries like healthcare need more control
- Headless doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll be faster
- Marketplaces will struggle to take advantage of platforms like Instagram and TikTok
- Your digital footprint matters - how diverse does your company look? Do you have any offset programs? What is the language of your site?
