ATLANTA, GA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/12/13 -- Vir2o (http://www.vir2o.com/), a new social media platform by East Coast Diversified Corporation (OTCQB: ECDC), today announced that it plans to release its interactive business pages from beta in the coming weeks. Thanks to its proprietary nVite technology, Vir2o predicts its business members will see a dramatic increase in shopping-cart click-throughs compared to standard online shopping experiences.
Vir2o's nVite technology will essentially alert merchants as soon as a potential customer "enters" their online business page, giving owners the opportunity to immediately interact with shoppers and help guide their purchasing decisions.
"Vir2o's nVite stands in direct opposition to the current online shopping model which consists of lonely customers flipping through some pages and then leaving their shopping carts behind as they surf away," said Kayode Aladesuyi, chairman and chief executive officer of East Coast Diversified Corp. "We're bringing the fun interaction of real-world shopping to the Internet."
According to a wide variety of studies, the average documented online shopping cart abandonment rate is 67.45 percent.
