The past year has transformed digital commerce. Retailers could no longer rely on in-person sales experiences and were forced to figure out how to replicate those interactions and branding opportunities online. The most savvy players invested in online content and tools to drive web sales: interactive quizzes to help match shoppers with the right products, innovative fit guides, virtual appointments with sales associates, augmented reality and pages devoted to messaging around sustainability, charitable giving and supporting social causes. And conversion rates jumped in response. In this webinar, Digital Commerce 360 will share data on from our just-released conversion and Top 1000 reports examining how ecommerce leaders leaned more heavily on these website features in 2020. We will share results from consumer and retailer surveys and case studies on how some retailers like e.l.f. Cosmetics, David’s Bridal, Home Depot and Il Makiage were able to drive revenue by more creatively utilizing content and technology. Attendees will also hear best practices from seasoned retail experts on how to capitalize on content trends in digital commerce.
