Clicks to Bricks Personalization: Understanding 'This' Customer


As the phygital retail experience brings digital expectations into B&M, it won't be enough for retail marketers to understand "the customer." It is time to understand this customer - the one right in front of you this second - the one with her own history of dealing with your brand on and off and with her own needs and preferred touch-points.

The Retail Brand Insider Summit will cover:

  • Media buying in the omnichannel customer journey
  • Personalization across channels
  • Building the better martech stack
  • Leveraging loyalty programs
  • The personalized retail experience

As retailers plan their 4th quarter marketing strategies, MediaPost gathers some of the best minds in the business to show their work and chart the next generation of personalization. Welcome to the concierge era of retail.

Media Mapping the New Omnichannel Journeys
Clicks or feet? Being "channel agnostic" is nice in theory but in a new omnichannel retail environment what are media planners and buyers supposed to do about a media mix that has to drive a range of very different real and virtual world behaviors? We ask media thinkers to share how they plan against their customer behaviors. How do you allocate for driving online purchase journeys vs. store traffic, brand building vs. performance, customer acquisition vs. LTV? It's getting complicated.

Panel: Personalization Across the Experience
Consumers are looking for concierges not just buy buttons. Extending the personalized marketing model from email subject line into the store visit, from the loyalty program to sales reps, will be the new normal of 2024. How are retailers working on next-level personalization across virtual and real world that doesn’t just flex technology but serves customers, builds the brand and drives more sales.
