Some snippets from our exclusive Omni-Channel Retailing eBook:

Changing Consumer Behavior and Technology

The driver behind the rise of omni-channel retailing is changing consumer behavior. Next-generation shoppers are top of mind for retailers, and they have unique shopping habits. Besides multi-channel shopping, this generation is more inclined to trust their peers over a company’s brand, and social media gives these consumers instant information and feedback. That means pre-shopping can happen in extremely social contexts – on Facebook, around the water cooler, or through online review sites. Consumers are already sourcing information in multiple ways – retailers need to ensure they are present where consumers are looking.
