2024 Retail Strategies: Don’t Get Left Behind (Leverage Salesforce for Data & Loyalty)

The latest retail data paints a clear picture: cautious consumers are tightening their belts. While inflation remains high and interest rate cuts seem unlikely, there’s still a path to success for retailers who can adapt. Here’s how advansappz can help you leverage Salesforce to navigate this challenging landscape and unlock hidden opportunities.

Understanding Your Customers: Data is Key

The first quarter of 2024 shows a slowdown in online sales growth, with global traffic and order volume increases barely exceeding 1%. This indicates a shift in consumer behavior – they’re being more selective and waiting for big shopping moments.

advansappz, a leading Salesforce solutions provider, empowers you to harness the power of Salesforce data. We can help you:

  • Gain Deep Customer Insights: Uncover hidden trends in your customer data to understand what your audience is buying, how they’re shopping, and what influences their decisions.
  • Predict Shopping Behavior: Leverage AI and machine learning to anticipate buying patterns and tailor promotions accordingly.
  • Optimize Marketing Campaigns: Target the right customers with the right message at the right time.

By leveraging data-driven strategies, you can be proactive in meeting your customers’ needs and maximizing your marketing spend.

The Power of Loyalty: Building Lasting Relationships

Power of Loyalty

One positive trend amidst the economic uncertainties is the rise in consumer brand loyalty. In the first quarter of 2024, the share of global repeat buyers reached 43%, highlighting the importance of fostering strong customer relationships.

advansappz offers solutions to enhance customer loyalty:

  • Craft Compelling Loyalty Programs: Design a loyalty program that incentivizes repeat purchases and rewards your most valuable customers.
  • Personalize the Customer Journey: Use Salesforce to deliver personalized recommendations and offers that resonate with individual customer preferences.
  • Drive Engagement Across Channels: Build seamless omnichannel experiences that keep your brand top-of-mind wherever customers choose to shop.

Prioritizing customer loyalty allows retailers to weather economic uncertainties and fuel long-term growth.

Mobile Shopping Reigns Supreme

Mobile Shopping

Mobile shopping continues its dominance, with mobile traffic and orders reaching record highs.  Emerging markets like APAC and MEA are leading the mobile charge, indicating a global shift towards mobile-first shopping.

advansappz assists retailers in optimizing mobile shopping experiences:

  • Optimize Your Mobile App: We ensure that retailers’ mobile apps provide a smooth and user-friendly shopping experience, enhancing customer satisfaction and retention.
  • Embrace AI-powered Shopping: Integrating AI features such as personalized recommendations and voice search enhances the mobile shopping experience, driving engagement and conversions.
