By Shelby Ballou

These days, first impressions are usually digital. Because of this, online retail companies need to create strong digital marketing strategies.

1. Determine the best distribution channels.

User demographics vary widely across platforms. Consequently, internet retail companies need to develop strategic messaging that appeals to their target audience. They also need to pinpoint where their target audience spends most of their time on the web.

In the beginning, ask these questions.

  1. Are they interested in hearing about discounts and promotions?
  2. Do they want to shop online or in-store?
  3. Are they seeking feedback to help with their purchasing decision?
  4. Are they contact service via social media?

2. Personalize customer experiences.

The next step is to create a personalized customer experience. Retail companies must create an emotional connection with their target audience. Personalized content offers a unique customer experience that builds trust. Tailor content based on your target audience’s needs and desires, which will help them feel more connected to your brand. In addition, interact with your online audience over time to continue building and strengthening relationships.

3. Be consistent.

Maintaining a consistent voice across channels helps create a seamless online experience. Extend your reach beyond the storefront by maintaining consistency across platforms and keeping content timely, fresh, and relevant.

4. Be available.

In a digital landscape that’s constantly changing, retail companies need to be accessible 24/7. This allows consumers to stay connected and builds trust. Over 50% of customers expect to receive live assistance around the clock, so make sure customer service is available at all times.
