According to many reports, the physical retail experience is in crisis as more and more consumers shift to internet shopping. Despite this, the majority of global purchases still happen offline, from 90% of sales in the US through to 92% of sales in the UK and 94% in China. The big change is that today's shopper seeks content and advice online before buying in store. Omnichannel Retail celebrates all the advantages of the physical shopping experience, from its sensory selection through to try-before-you buy, and its potential for providing an instant and profitable retail solution, while explaining the imperative of bringing the power of digital and an omnichannel experience to everyday shopping.

Customers live and shop digitally and physically now... but they don't see the distinction that retailers make between the two. The retailers that will win in the future will be able to seamlessly combine physical and digital experiences and marketing. Taking the disciplines of digital marketing that deliver more targeted, more scaled and more interactive messages for customers is now a must-do to create that seamless experience.
