Consumers consistently tell us they want more. More information, more selection, more special offers, and more ways to access your goods and services. Enter Multi-Channel Selling and Marketing... Multi-channel is a buzzword we hear a lot lately. Until recently, it was mostly used in a marketing context to describe a multi-touch approach to reach customers. But more and more, we are hearing it used in referring to selling channels. Let's take a few minutes to unpack how multi-channel can profit your business.

It Played Out as We Expected

By |2020-09-14T21:28:39+00:00September 9th, 2020|news|0 Comments

Earlier this summer, we shared in an email that we saw certain economic conditions coming our way that would impact consumer's shopping behaviors. While the glow of unexpectedly robust Q2 revenue was still fresh in many retailer's minds, we shared that based on feedback from our July consumer survey, we saw a reversal coming our way along with a shift in shopping patterns. You can access our original article here. Shoppers told us they were concerned about the economy and that they would adjust their household shopping budgets accordingly. Well, it played out pretty much as we expected.

Connecting with Consumers. Is it Different Now?

By |2020-08-05T17:50:20+00:00August 4th, 2020|news|0 Comments

Q2 is behind us and the numbers were surprising. Year over year, growth was off the charts for many retailers. For some, not in a good way, but for those essential businesses selling groceries, hardware, and general merchandise, you more than likely exceeded some of your best quarters. Now what? Can we expect more of the same? Most analysts have identified Q2 as an anomaly, a perfect storm that provided certain retail segments with a significant challenge, but also with a sizable reward.  No one's saying it was easy, but the bottom line looked pretty good. So let's do it again in Q3. Right? That may be harder than it looks. The landscape has changed. The pandemic is still with us, but the panic [...]
