Synopsis and overview of the session
The pandemic drove an accelerated surge in eCommerce as lockdowns bit and consumers adopted online shopping in their droves. However, online retail sales in July across Australia declined by 34 per cent year-on-year, suggesting that rising interest rates and inflation – plus an uptick in physical store footfall – are all factors contributing towards an eCommerce slowdown. So, what can online retailers do to tackle this trend and turn the pandemic bounce into sustainable, long-term digital growth? And, critically, what role can owned channels play?
Focus Network in partnership with Wunderkind invite you to join this upcoming private gathering where we will delve deeper into:
- How retailers should be adapting their customer acquisition & retention strategies for today’s online shopping behaviours
- Smart ways to drive cost efficiencies within the overall marketing strategy, including reducing reliance on paid media – and making the most of owned channels and audiences
- How to prepare for the end of third-party cookies in 2024 with future-proof first- and zero-party data strategies
- Right message, right time: the role of personalisation in retention and growing customer lifetime value
