In the current eCommerce landscape, if your business is not digitally accessible everywhere, your business could be on the path of failure. With the changes in how we shop, and the attributes of the modern consumer, it’s not a suggestion but a MUST for businesses to be accessible online and digitally everywhere. This is where the digital shelf presents itself and where companies must take control of the online presence of products to succeed in this new era.
The Digital Shelf is something we’re all familiar with. But, if you’re not, the Digital Shelf is the collection of diverse and rapidly evolving digital touchpoints used by shoppers to engage with brands and discover, research, and purchase products. Every time you shop online whether it’s off Amazon or a sponsored link from your favorite influencer, you’re adding to your own digital footprint. These traces of data including the occasional window shop, how long you take on a site, and what you end up buying, are nuggets of gold for businesses. By utilizing these data morsels, sellers will be on their way to taking control of their digital shelf leading to optimal shopping experiences, customer loyalty, and a drive for maximum growth.
A crucial element of harnessing the digital shelf, is product experience.
Remember the last time you looked up a product on Amazon and had access to every single detail you never thought you’d need? This rich product content is typically the make it or break it part of a sale. No one wants to order a dining chair and end up receiving one that’s intended to be used in a dollhouse rather than around your lovely dining room table! By offering the important specs and making your content user-friendly, you’re creating a trustworthy shopping experience for your consumers.
