Retailers have been obsessed, in recent years, with the idea of “multi-channel.”
But now they’re trying to figure out how to be multi-channel without feeling multi-channel…so-to-speak. Customers don’t care about channels and they don’t think about them. So our goal as a retailer is to make them feel like they’re having the same experience with our brand whether they’re in a brick and mortar store, on their desktop computer, on their mobile phone, etc.
In the below discussion, a few retail experts speak with Bob Cell, CEO of MyBuys, about how to flip this model and get past the idea of multi-channel, to a more integrated digital strategy throughout the organization.
The pros you’ll hear from are (and please don’t pay any mind to the typo in the intro slide – Mr. Braun from OfficeMax was not actually on this panel):
Grace Mase, VP, E-Commerce, Beachbody
Jay Basnight, Head of Digital Strategy, Puma
Kurt Heinemann, CMO, Monetate
Debbie Johnsen, Director, Interactive Marketing, The Leading Hotels of the World
Dave Reed, SVP, Strategic Solutions, MediaMath
