Omnichannel is a marketing and sales approach that provides customers with a seamless and integrated shopping experience across multiple channels and touchpoints. These include online and offline channels, such as websites, online marketplace, mobile apps, social media, and physical stores.
Omnichannel provides customers with a consistent and personalized experience, regardless of which channel or device they use to interact with a brand. Customers can begin their shopping journey on one platform, and seamlessly move to another, such as a mobile app to make purchase. Read on to find out how UrbanFox addresses the needs of brands in the relentless change in ecommerce trends.
Burgeoning in numbers, the e-commerce trend accelerated in growth with the COVID-19 pandemic. Online shopping became more prevalent as customers sought convenience, safety, and the ability to compare prices and products from different brands.
Fashion and electronics are two of the most popular product categories in e-commerce. Following closely behind, are lifestyle, toys, hobbies, home & living, personal care, beauty care, and health care, which are also well purchased by customers. While they offer many benefits for online shoppers, there are several challenges that brands face when selling these products online.
One of the biggest challenges for fashion brands is providing accurate sizing information to customers to help them make informed decisions before purchasing.
In addition, both the fashion and electronics categories frequently see returns and exchanges. Customers return products based on sizes that do not fit or if they are not satisfied with the product overall. Brands are required to have clear and easy-to-follow return policies and processes to ensure customer satisfaction.
Since the fashion and electronics industries tend to be vulnerable to counterfeit products, brands emphasize on the authenticity of their products, ensuring their customers are purchasing from a reputable platform.
Shipping and logistics can be complex for fashion and electronics products, due to varying sizes - large electronics products can be difficult to ship and may require special handling. Brands need to have efficient and reliable logistics processes in place to ensure products are delivered timely and are cost-effective.
Although there are many challenges in selling fashion and electronics products online, the benefits of e-commerce, such as increased reach, convenience, and access to data and analytics, make it an attractive sales channel for brands, especially in these categories.
