In this episode…

Supply chain and logistics are some of the most crucial components of eCommerce. But, this environment is becoming increasingly volatile and uncertain as brands wonder where they should market, store, and ship their products. So, how are each of the major platforms managing their supply chains, and what should you consider before making a decision?

According to eCommerce strategist Rick Watson, TikTok and Shopify are planning to leverage virtual supply chain strategies for brands and retailers to ship their products. Yet, the question remains regarding where this inventory will be stored, so businesses must evaluate and select third-party fulfillment options. Conversely, Amazon has acquired excess inventory, so it’s essential to liquidate your products to avoid storage fees. When assessing your options, Rick maintains the value of collaborative planning to communicate strategies. 

In this episode of The Digital Deep Dive, Aaron Conant sits down with Rick Watson, CEO and Founder of RMW Commerce Consulting, to talk about supply chain and logistics trends. Rick explains how TikTok is entering the eCommerce supply chain, Amazon’s methods for liquidating inventory, and how brands should consider Shopify’s logistics strategy.

Studies show that 66% of all customers begin their product searches on Amazon, making it a growth opportunity for brands. Yet, selling on Amazon involves risks, including unauthorized sellers and keyword and product cannibalization. So, how can you develop a strategy to protect your brand?

In the retail media space, visual content is the #1 driver of conversions. Yet, many brands regard this form of content as a cost rather than an asset to their business. As a result, they lack the strategies required to optimize content effectively for their audience. So, how can you enhance your visual media strategy to analyze and generate conversion rates?

The first principal step in content optimization is investing in a visual analytics strategy to measure your content’s effectiveness. This requires determining your target audience and the ideal shoppers you’d like to convert. According to Jehan Hamedi, each image has an ideal customer that differs by marketplaces, behavioral demographics, and shopping habits. AI allows you to analyze visual data by simulating how a specific audience reacts to your imagery. With these approaches, you can hone your content to generate new leads.

In this episode of The Digital Deep Dive, Aaron Conant welcomes Jehan Hamedi, Founder and CEO of Vizit, to talk about analyzing and optimizing visual content. Jehan shares the importance of curating content for different marketplaces and customers, advice for launching content internationally, and the benefits of AI to streamline visual data analytics.

When it comes to direct-to-consumer (DTC) distribution and fulfillment, many eCommerce brands lack an efficient operational strategy, resulting in diminished warehouse capacity and lengthy shipping times.

With this method, you can reduce your replenishment and lead times by hours or days.
