Today, omnichannel strategy and cohesive customer journeys have become vital to marketers across all industries.
FREMONT, CA: Today, it has become vital for brands to prove their integrity across every communication channel that they leverage, be consistent with marketing and promotional offers to avoid any confusion for potential customers. Many brands want to move towards an omnichannel marketing experience. It is no longer enough to just have an online presence on multiple channels; the channels now also need to be efficiently integrated and tailored with apt marketing strategies. A recent survey shows that 94 percent of marketers believe that providing an omnichannel experience is crucial to business success. So what does one look like?
There is a cliche phrase ’content is king’ which is still true, but without context, it is nothing. What kind of content customers are consuming and when? Do free tools better convert customers? At what point of buying journey do they find the content most valuable? Is content optimized for the device that customers are using? These are all questions to be answered while tailoring an omnichannel marketing strategy. To provide a truly valuable omnichannel experience, marketers have to know customers intimately and understand who they are and where they are coming from.
Key takeaways from several reports show that there are still major roadblocks to omnichannel implementation including, siloed organizational structure. Sales, marketing, product development, PR, and customer service still operate independently of each other in many organizations. Restructuring these traditional roles can put the responsibility of creating an omnichannel experience in more than one department. When communication is quick, and teams operate flexibly, agile omnichannel marketing could be the result.
The marketing technology landscape is bigger now more than ever. So it is also important for brands to identify tools that can work together to improve all facets of omnichannel marketing efforts. At the heart of every productive marketing effort, there is customer relationship management. This can also help improve the omnichannel experience.
