Understanding Omnichannel Retailing

See on Scoop.itDigital reach

The beauty of Omnichannel retailing is that it makes life easy for consumers, and therefore removes barriers that might otherwise put them off making a purchase. Here are some of the ways an Omnichannel strategy can improve the customer experience.

Click and Collect: This is Omnichannel retailing in its purest form. It allows consumers to search for a store that has their desired product in stock, complete the purchase online, then pick up the product from the store from a sales assistant who is expecting them and has their order ready. Reward Cards: Many loyalty schemes allow you to earn and spend points both in-store and online, or even allow customers to earn points for shopping at multiple companies all owned by the same parent company. 

Real-time Information: To give consumers the best shopping experience available, it’s important to offer up-to-date information. Click and collect would be useless if consumers were told that they could collect an item that was out of stock at their nearest store.

Omnichannel Marketing: Many brands collect information about consumer habits both on-and-offline, and use that to provide relevant special offers and discounts, both via direct mail and email. By collating all this information from one Omnichannel system, retailers get a better understanding of their best customers to help guide their business decisions.
