Retail is currently going through a cosmic shift in retail marketing strategies, focused heavily on digital business transformation. However, as an industry, retail companies are inexplicably lagging behind all other industries. According to a recent Gartner Digital Business Survey, as few as 3% of retailers are delivering clear results from their digital marketing initiatives. The survey further finds that there is a lack of clarity by retail marketers concerning their objectives.
Specifically, they tend to struggle to define goals for the retail channel that are separate from ecommerce initiatives. This leaves us with the question, "how can the remaining 97% of retailers gain clarity and results towards their retail marketing initiatives?" The answer is to listen to the voice of the customer and align retail marketing initiatives with the new digital customer journey.
