The social media strategy was extremely savvy and played on all the Millennial triggers necessary to amplify the message across the entire internet with an average cost of $20,000 for each influencer.

What Bookstores Reveal about Consumers

Some might say that turning the page of a physical book is an experience that cannot be replicated by a digital screen. The same could also be said for the experience of purchasing a book in a brick-and-mortar store compared to online (which for some is just a click in an online shop while they’re in their pajamas at home). When the Kindle launched in 2007, many panicked and wondered what was going to happen to the printed page. There were even talks of bookstores being wiped out within 10 year...

Autumn in Italy Is Changing and So are Shopping Habits

Alcohol Innovates with eCommerce in Mind

The world’s first flat wine bottle is here. Garconwines has launched a flat, plastic wine bottle to solve a big issue with home delivery—wine bottles not fitting through the narrow slot in the front door/mailbox. It's a win win for shoppers, brands and retailers as it holds the same amount of wine as a normal bottle and can be used by producers for their online orders. Wine isn't the only one changing the game to reach shoppers. As people in the U.K. are going out less, drinking more at home an...

IoT: The Next Big Shopper Battleground

It’s no secret that the IoT (Internet of Things) has been increasing its critical mass over the past few years. It started slowly, in a very stealthy way: lightbulbs, smart wearables and speakers. Now, the IoT is gaining momentum, making its way into everyday products like refrigerators, doorbells, thermostats and cars. It’s seeping into every facet of our lives. And, with Amazon’s Echo Auto announcement (which brings Alexa into the car), the war for dominance of the IoT is quietly being waged. ...

Powerful Discounters

Grocery discounters are on the rise and shoppers are hungry for quality discount options. This is leading classic retailers to create more value centric options.

With a focus on British produce and own label products, Jack’s is an attempt to stem the flow of shoppers to —at 13%, their combined share has doubled over the past five years. Dave Le...

The Role of D2C in an Evolving Commerce Market

For many years, direct-to-consumer (D2C) was the unicorn aspiration of brand and marketing managers in the western world. Having people care enough about a product to seek it out online was a tease that compelled  many brands to collectively waste billions in investigating a way to have a direct commercial relationship with your customer. The goal was obvious. Cut out the middleman. Access full margin, data, and consumer information. Create a reason for that expensive, under-performing website ...

Because of ride-sharing services like Uber, people are spending more time as passengers than ever before. This offers brands a new opportunity to reach shoppers during these down times.
