Customers have multiple ways to interact with retailers—mobile, web, social media, email, and in-store, the list goes on. These options provide flexibility, but they create challenges to track, monitor, and understand what’s happening at each touchpoint. Too often, every interaction is tracked and managed by disparate systems, creating siloed insights and leaving retailers with little useful data to make business decisions. What can you do to appropriately collect, analyze and create actionable insights across the customer journey from your digital intelligence? How can you ultimately improve customer loyalty?
The first step is integration.
Data and insights from multiple sources and applications need to be connected. Integrating systems enables you to connect the dots and sets the framework for an omnichannel experience. Not only does it create the seamless flow for customers across channels, but it delivers a 360 view of the customer to marketing and sales. This continual feedback loop empowers you to adjust your strategy and tactics in real-time as customers engage with your brand at every point of their journey.
Once you have integrated, it’s time to think about how to intentionally create omnichannel experiences that inspire loyalty. What evokes loyalty? A sense that a brand “gets you” and meets you where you are, when you need it. Loyalty can feel like an elusive emotion to pin down, but customers are naturally loyal to brands that meet their needs, make it easy, and generate positive feelings (or conversely, do not cause negative feelings).
Here are five omnichannel strategies that inspire loyalty:
All of these strategies take advantage of your mobile app as a key driver in connecting with customers and serving them in ways that feel personalized and helpful. Localytics can help you put all of these methods into play to generate a true omnichannel experience curated for today’s modern shopper.
