Engaging Customers Before, During, and After the Sale

Kyle Lacy, Senior Manager of Content Marketing & Research, ExactTarget

Retailers work hard to create the perfect in-store customer experience. But the fact is, Internet influence on the retail sales industry is here to stay, and today's smartphones, barcode scanning apps, and comparison-shopping tools can make brick and mortar institutions feel under siege. Indeed, the balance of informational power has shifted to consumers, and retailers are scrambling to fend off competition in every aisle of their stores.

Using data from ExactTarget’s Retail Touchpoints Exposed!—a study of the 100 fastest growing retailers—the day's closing session breaks down how the most successful retailers are engaging with digitally-savvy customers through their online, email, mobile, and in-store channels. You'll learn what these retailers have done well, where there is room for improvement, and how to build—and enhance—customer relationships before, during, and after the sale.

You will learn:

  • Why using data is extremely important to the success of any brand
  • How the in-store experience can drive email acquisition
  • Five trends changing consumer behavior
