Despite the digital boom 51% of shoppers still prefer to shop in physical stores (GfK). Modern customers demand a unified brand experience across all touchpoints, so it’s more important than ever to connect the dots between online and offline. With the help of digital direct marketing you can target customers digitally while they shop physically. Here’s how.
1. Test proximity marketing
Take this scenario; your customer abandons their basket online and visits the high street the next day. When they’re within walking distance of your business they receive a coupon to their phone, offering 10% off the item they were looking to buy online.
This is exactly what’s possible with digital direct marketing software. You can send personalised mobile messages to customers based on their behaviour and where they are, so your message is delivered at the right time in the right place to convert.
2. Make your loyalty program flexible
Mobile influences 64 percent of all sales made in-store, says Deloitte. Design an app to complement your in-store loyalty program and give customers the opportunity to redeem points online or in-store.
According to our recent whitepaper the biggest barrier to loyalty is customers forgetting to bring the loyalty card into store. With digital wallets and digitised loyalty programs your customers can earn and redeem rewards via mobile.
