The pandemic has altered the trajectory of selling and marketing for brands. In the pandemic’s aftermath, consumers are transitioning back to in-store purchasing, yet online selling remains. So, how can you develop a strategy to meet these evolving demands?
Todd Hassenfelt urges brands not to disregard the digital shelf. Instead, you should compare and contrast both online and in-store selling options to gauge the customer journey effectively. With consumers buying from multiple brands and retailers in both settings, it’s essential to optimize your digital shelf to increase your online and in-store presence. By engaging your teams, you can build solutions to maximize your ROI and meet consumer needs.
