Survey Results

  • Business Strategy
  • 1. Our company has a customer data repository

    You Scored 0/2

    It is important to understand how your customer likes to shop and where they like to spend their money. Multiple databases can be a hindrance to understanding customers habits and likely you are duplicating efforts in marketing. It would behoove the brand to move to a single customer repository.

  • 2. Our organizational structure prioritizes the overall customer experience through all business channels

    You Scored 2/2

    You are ahead of most brands. This is considered best-in-class.

  • 3. We have a yearly budgeting process

    You Scored 2/2

    You are ahead of most brands. This is considered best-in-class.

  • 4. We have a strong understanding of who our customers are

    You Scored 3/3

    You are ahead of most retailers. All of this information should be utilized tin segmentation and marketing strategies and implemented throughout your customer databases.

  • 5. We have a strong understanding of our competitors and the competitive landscape

    You Scored 2/2

    You are ahead of most retailers. This awareness and research should result in annual or bi-annual roadmapping exercises to keep you in front of your competition and aligned with consumer expectations.

    You Scored 4/5

    Excellent. You're delivering a unified commerce experience to your customers!

  • 7. We provide customers with full visibility into both online and in-store inventory

    You Scored 1/4

    Customers expect your site to provide access to the same product and availability information that your store associates have. Explore omnichannel Order Management Systems that provide robust "Available To Promise" functionality that can be integrated into your product detail pages.

  • 8. We fulfill online Ship From Store orders

    You Scored 3/4

  • 10. We offer Buy Online, Pickup In Store (BOPIS) functionality to shoppers

    You Scored 3/5

    Continue to measure and refine this program. Establish SLAs for store fulfillment. Use text messaging to notify customers when their orders are ready to be picked up. This will drive additional in-store purchases. Also, allowing the customer to designate another individual to pick up their order on their behalf is a great way to boost loyalty.

  • 11. We leverage Endless Aisle / mobile Point-of-Sale solutions

    You Scored 1/4

    Great. Focus on tracking and reporting this program, and align incentives for store associates to drive them to offer this option to your customers

    You Scored 4/4

    When was this strategy implemented and how often do you revisit or revise it?

  • 13. We segment our loyalty program customers based upon tier of engagement

    You Scored 0/2

    If you do not have a rewards program, or if it is in development, you can still target "loyal" customers. If you have a CRM or a system that functions as a CRM, segment your highest, most frequent purchasers and treat them as your loyalty segment- offering rewards through email. If you do not have CRM data, begin by segmenting your most engaged openers - these can be customers you start priming for Loyalty through messaging and exclusive offers.

  • Digital Marketing
  • 14. We email to defined segments

    You Scored 2/2

    already have site behavior and past purchase data you actively segment upon, then your next step is to identify any remaining gaps in your email data profiles. For instance, are there any brand-specific engagements (such as customization or wishlist engagement) that would be beneficial to target? Beyond rounding out your data profile for segmentation, you are now in the "test and learn" phase. Make sure you have a strong testing plan in place to validate your current segmentation and confirm assumptions.

  • 15. Our email platform is integrated into multiple systems

    You Scored 2/2

    You have a best-in-class view of your customer. If you have reviewed all data attributes and there are no gaps (e.g. unified view across store and web), then the next step is to make sure you have a solid plan to use your data. This includes triggered sends, segmentation, and content relevancy.

  • 16. We have an active paid media program

    You Scored 0/2
