Omni-Channel Marketing for Your Business
We try to stay away from using buzz words to get our message across, but lately we’ve seen a term emerge that gets to the core of what Sales Renewal is all about. Omni-channel marketing – removing silos, putting the customer front and center, approaching ROI from an integrated perspective – describes a shift in how businesses are trying to maximize performance and consistency across all marketing channels to create a unified experience for their customers.
From Multi- to Omni-Channel Marketing
The concept of omni-channel marketing has come about due to a convergence of technology in the hands of the consumer and the availability of Big Data (sorry, another buzz word) for marketers. Today, prospects and customers have more and more control over how they interact with businesses – from online to in store purchases, from website to email to social media sites, on a smartphone or on a desktop. And businesses have more and more access to data that allows them to connect with prospects and customers with customized messaging, from marketing automation to dynamic website content to SMS messages to social media interactions. And omni-channel marketing is what connects all these experiences together.
