The holiday season is upon us, and for ecommerce businesses, it’s the time of year where every click, every page, and every customer experience counts double. Amidst the joy and jingles, there’s a critical challenge that often goes unnoticed but can significantly impact your sales: the dreaded 404 error page. Here’s where NotFoundBot steps in, turning potential frustration into a sales opportunity. Let’s unwrap this increased holiday sales miracle together!

The Ghost of Christmas Lost Sales

Imagine this: a customer, let’s call her Holly, is browsing your website, filled with festive cheer and ready to splurge on gifts. She clicks on a link to what she hopes is the perfect gift, but instead of finding holiday joy, she’s greeted by a cold, impersonal 404 error page. Like 74% of visitors in her shoes, Holly might leave and never return, taking her holiday spirit (and wallet) with her.

This is not just a hypothetical scenario. During the holiday season, website traffic spikes, and so do the chances of visitors encountering dead ends. It’s a ghost of Christmas past that haunts many ecommerce sites, leading to lost sales and unhappy customers – and the worst of it is most site owners don’t know it’s happening.
