The connected shopper. Fallacy fad or reality?

  1. The connected shopper: fallacy, fad, or reality? Simon Etchells | Group Digital Director The Delta Group

  4. The Landscape is Changing Wooing consumers into physical stores in the first place and giving them compelling reasons to shop is getting harder and harder. With the wide spectrum of shopping channels, a multitude of information sources, numerous delivery solutions and the hyper-connected shopper there has been a massive change in shopper habits. Shoppers now expect to interact with a retail brand across multiple channels – and to excel all of the retailers channels must provide an excellent service.  €6 million investment in further store upgrades and an initial €1 million to invest in developing Eason’s omnichannel offering over the next three years
  5. Irish Retail Snapshot • €30 Bn in total sales • 23% of State tax • 12% of GDP • 33% of total consumer spend • 14% of national employment • Sales still 13% lower than pre-crisis • Irish shopper price conscious and much more informed due to online penetration • Increased focus on destination stores with 29% of retailers looking to invest in technology • Tighter times & intense competition between retailers in 2016
  6. The Power of Omnichannel Omni-channel is how consumers shop, not a retail strategy. The more channels customers use, the more valuable they are. A recent Google study found that omnichannel shoppers are 3 times more valuable to a brand, with Macy’s stating 6 times. Irish shoppers say that social media has an influence over what they buy – under 25’s – 60% and 25-34 – 50%. Conducting prior online research on the retailer’s own site or sites of other retailers led to 13% greater in-store spending among omnichannel shoppers. 71% of customers consider it important to be able to view local inventory information for an item online. 39% went so far as to say they would not shop at a store whose online presence lacked this information. 88% of Irish shoppers participate in loyalty schemes.
  7. But is E-Retail Still Growing? • The digital economy is now worth about 6% of Ireland’s GDP. • 94% of Irish internet users now shop online. • 75% of the population say that they use the internet at least once a day. • Spend by an average adult online per month increased by 13% • Since 2014, from €71 to €80 per month per person. • 47% are willing to use their phone to shop • 30% say that their mobile will become their main shopping tool in the future. • 6 in 10 browse online before making an in store purchase.

  10. Current and Future Retail Challenges In-store Navigation In-store navigation can be so frustrating, customers have dedicated entire blog posts and Facebook pages to it! As we move into the era of omnichannel experience, creating in-store navigation that helps the customer on their terms becomes more and more vital. Data-Driven Decisions Customer data will drive decisions about what to sell, where to sell it and how to price it. This will require investment in technology and more importantly will change how the business operates. Behavioural and predictive analytics are becoming a big disruptor. Importance of the Customer Journey The customer journey will move from being a “nice to do” to a top priority. Retailers and brands must review and improve the entire customer experience and not just the final mile.
  11. Personalisation and Experience All data indicates that these two factors very important to shoppers and the expectation a retailer will provide excellence in these increases by the day. Digital Content Consumers crave digital content. Just take Barclay’s recent New Retail Reality report, which found that while customers still prefer the high street experience to shopping online, they want stores to showcase the latest tech. It showed that 57% of consumers are more likely to visit a shop integrated with VR, while 65% want to see more touchscreen technology used by retailers. Mobile Shoppers The practice of checking competitor prices online while visiting a store (a practice known as “showrooming”) is gaining in popularity and causing traditional retailers a lot of concern. Current and Future Retail Challenges
  12. Conversational Commerce Voice user interfaces (VUI) provide consumers with a more natural and intuitive way of engaging with digital technology. This combined with the growing popularity of connected devices in the home and car will have a profound impact on how we shop. Brand Selling Direct to Consumer The number of manufacturers selling directly to consumers is expected to grow 71% this year to more than 40% of all manufacturers. And over a third of consumers report they bought directly from a brand manufacturer’s web site last year. The Power of Advocacy and Social Media Personal recommendations continue to dominate the trustworthiness of advertising. 92% of consumers believe recommendations from friends and family over all forms of advertising. How can this power be harnessed in store? Current and Future Retail Challenges
  13. Consumer Needs and Habits are Shifting New consumers are being defined - survivalists and selectionists. Survivalists are cutting back and looking for value. By contrast, selectionists can afford to be choosy and “select” for products they perceive as being of much higher quality. The result is that the discount and top-end companies are doing well and increasing their market share, while retailers in the middle — and the CPG companies that service them — are suffering. Loyalty Schemes Work With the increasing power of smartphones apps – with digital payment, social feeds and receipts built in. Combine this with shopping lists and way finding technology and shoppers can be given a tremendous shopping experience. Current and Future Retail Challenges

  40. Complete Solutions Would you want to: • Make your windows work harder? • Boost sales with targeted indoor marketing? • Bringing online to life in store? • Generate higher engagement on shelf? • Create impactful in store theatre? • Produce digital content that wows? By combining the Delta Groups’ experience and resources with the latest in-store innovations, we can help deliver all of these.
  41. Making Windows Work Harder Combining four different technologies we can provide highly tailored and engaging content that shoppers can interact with at any time of day (or night). Using high brightness retail screens, touch screen films, audience monitoring camera’s and vibration speakers, windows can be turned into shoppable windows with shoppers demographics and their reactions being monitored. With this demographic data the shopper can be shown products that may appeal specifically to them. Also information specific to the location (such as weather conditions) can be shown. All screens in your estate, or just one, can be updated instantly. Provide a digital catalogue they can interact with and provide click and collect details for the next day they can email/text to themselves.
  42. Targeted Indoor Marketing Dynamic interactive content can be delivered in store by using stand alone, shelf mounted and shelf edge screens combined with iBeacons and bar code scanners. With a content management system shoppers can be given highly targeted information and promotions via digital screens – in real time. Further, using video analytics (footfall and attention time for instance) patterns of behaviour by customer segments can be discovered. This allows cross sell and upsell, steering customers within departments, and testing attractiveness of products, services and messages. Ultimately in store marketing effectiveness can be tracked and managed.
  43. Bringing Online to Life In-store - Phygital Taking the in store/on shelf screens a step further shoppers can interact with these displays directly from their smartphones. Using NFC, QR codes or Snapcodes they be taken directly to any sites you decide and provide an online experience in store. This can also be driven by bar code scanners – holding a coded product up to a screen will provide much more detail on the product. Further by combining this technology with digital screens and a CRM or loyalty program shoppers can be served targeted promotions specific to them – based on previous shopping histories and preferences. You are more in control and can fulfill the “showrooming” effect.
  44. Create Impactful In-Store Theatre Shoppers are actively wanting to engage like never before and by providing with moments of fun and surprise your product and brand will create memorable excitement and engagement. From large scale Virtual and Augmented Reality experiences, digital graffiti walls, through to small scale selfie opportunities and interactive transparent screens - almost any foot print can be accommodated. Using social feeds directly at the point of sale their memorable experience can easily be shared creating a halo affect.
  45. Generate Higher Engagement on Shelf Shelf-edge messaging remains a very powerful tool. The vast majority of purchase and up to 80% of brand switch decisions are made directly at point of purchase. Displaying dynamic moving images, though technologies such as shelf edge video and short throw projectors, creates disruption and engagement at much higher levels than paper or card alone. By integrating electronic shelf labels you can remotely change your shelf-edges across one store, or every store, anywhere, in seconds. Adding audience monitoring to the shelf edge will allow you measure dwell time, engagement and demographics of the viewers.
  46. Produce Digital Content That Wows As with all other aspects of online life, content remains - and will remain - king. With the increasing sophistication of digital content tools and the huge options a shopper has to generate, and publish their own content it is vital to stay ahead of the game. Using sophisticated studio management and online approval tools, full 3D and visualisation studio right through to content management system, we create engaging and impactful content distributed to wherever and whenever you need it.
  47. The Future of Omnichannel • It is clear that shoppers have increasing desire to shop how and where they want • They also want the technology enabling them to do this • Social media sites will increase the focus and sophistication of their advertising and selling models • There will be no one channel better to sell than another - right place, right time • Relying on growth from a single channel is unsustainable • Reordering tools and algorithms will increase penetration • Mobile will only increase in importance
  48. In Summary • Omnichannel it not a concept of a future vision – it is todays reality • Retailers and brands that harness this will reap the rewards • Investing in store technology will pay dividends very quickly • Big data is not a buzz word but a very powerful tool • Personalisation and experience are the two concepts to crack • Remember shoppers expect a seamless experience across all channels. • No channel is more, or less important than another
