Can E-Commerce Boost In-Store Sales?
Traditional brick and mortar retail locations often feel many online developments don’t apply to their situation and many times they’re right. However, the rapid rise of smart phones, tablets, and other portable devices are changing the way consumers shop. People are creating and storing shopping lists, scanning product bar codes to compare prices, and accessing coupons and promotions all on their phones and in your store. Going Mobile (GoMo) is a must.
GoMo has the potential to make life easier on customers by helping them get to what they want more quickly. It also gives your consumers the information they need, when they need it, helping them to make the right choices; increasing sales, customer satisfaction and loyalty, and adding a new kind customer experience—a digital one.
While walking through your store, every resource of the web is in the palm of their hand—and they use it. How can that be to your advantage? Come learn with other small businesses and discover:
