Retail Analytics Only Work When You Use Them Right
“Retail Analytics” is a term being tossed around by some people as the cutting-edge trend that will make a retailer successful. And, while Retail Analytics will indeed allow your team to strategize successfully, just having a technology at hand doesn’t mean it will work by itself. Just like any tool, you have to use it the right way.
Get To Know Your Customers
Now, more than any time in history, there is information available on your customer base. Both current and potential customers are part of the ocean of “Big Data,” and being able to utilize that data means isolating what is important to your business. It’s logical to start with the data that your business compiles during operations and across all channels.
As the data is analyzed in historical, current, and comparative views, a good team will brainstorm ways to use the insights to reach your market and surpass their expectations about being your customer.
Surpass The Expectations of Your Customers
Personalized loyalty programs are one example of what can be done with the right kind of retail analytics. But many other potential improvements can be made to store layouts, hours of operation, customer service, and more. A store in an area that is big on outdoor sports may carry different inventory than one located in the heart of the city. In-store events designed for the local interests can increase reasons to come inside. There are as many ways to customize an ideal consumer experience as there are consumers.
