23 years ago, Amazon introduced to the world the concept of “one-click purchasing,” revolutionizing the way consumers shop again. Why? One simple reason. Efficiency.
Technology has disrupted our lives in many ways, increasing communication, efficiency, and productivity. We can roam further (cars, planes), our social circle became global (social media), and our work-life became better balanced (mobile technology and applications). Which raises the question, what can you do with one-click?
28 Things You Can Do With One-Click
As our lives have inevitably begun to rely on these technologies for both work and play, we have more time. And with more time, we are very good at filling that time with a never-ending round of busyness. Whether this is good or bad, we will leave up to the experts who study the brain, but once again, technology can help us get more done with less time.
In 1997, Amazon saw increased cart abandonment, in large part driven by the fact that consumers often had to leave their computers to get their chosen payment method. Because of this trend, Amazon developed the concept of the “one-click buy,” where shoppers could save their preferred method in their account and trigger the buy with a simple click of a button. From there, the trend took off. Now the list of things you can do with a simple click has grown. We developed this list of 28; what would you add?
