Frequently Asked Questions

What is the need to have connected retail marketing?

The last 2-3 years have observed a massive shift in customer behavior as well as their buying shift. Similarly, more than 15% of customers have downloaded e-commerce apps during the pandemic. This clearly shows that customers are in need of a more connected, experience meaning retail brands offering ease of purchase whether the customer is in a store or on the app. And to offer this experience, retail marketers need to opt for an omnichannel approach.

What is the omnichannel approach in retail marketing?

Omnichannel approach for retail marketing means offering a more consistent, continued, and convenient experience to a customer across all channels (in-store, website, in-app, and social).

Would introducing an app to the users help retail brands?

Yes and no. Yes, because having an app would help ease your customer’s purchase journey. No, because just introducing an app for the sake of having an app would NOT help in retail marketing. The brands need to be more aware of:

So look at your target audience and their touchpoints to analyze what screens and channels you would want to concentrate on.
