Reinventing eCommerce: How Leading Brands Embrace Omni-Channel Strategies to Succeed
Singapore, Jan 14, 2014 - (ACN Newswire) - Meet Asia's modern shoppers: They walk in to your store with their smartphone glued to their hands, skim through the racks to find a product, compare features and prices from their device, then walk out without buying anything. A week later, they order the product online - hopefully not from your competitor.
Today's omni-channel consumers crave for greater convenience and flexibility. The rapid growth of eCommerce in Asia has empowered consumers to choose when, where and how they make their purchases.
The pressure on businesses is no longer just about establishing an online transaction channel, but also to proactively guide and influence consumers through every relevant channel in their buying process. To meet these challenges, companies such as Las Vegas Sands actively make use of "technical and analytics to drive on-property experience throughout all its platforms and customer touch-points," said Eugene Lim, Las Vegas Sands' Senior Manager of Digital Marketing & eCommerce.
Businesses need to lay down a good omni-channel foundation before going into eCommerce. Without a clear strategy, they can end up cannibalizing their own physical store's profits. Charlie Bodycote, Managing Director of Bolei Digital, shared: "Many brands in Asia operate retail operations through a network of franchise or distribution partners. Creating an online sales channel can create channel conflict between the operator of the website and the operators of the stores; and to optimise customer experience, this needs careful planning."
