Retail has changed forever
The companies who have digitized early are winning the race to online success, but it’s not too late to catch up
Cyber Monday 2020 was the largest single day of consumer spending in US history, with $10.8 Billion spent online in 24 hours. With in-person retail spending down 50% this year, customers have flocked onto the web to get seasonal deals, new technology and Christmas shopping done early.
Where it’s possible to argue that this record is entirely due to Covid-19, there’s no doubt that the pandemic has shifted the digitization of commerce forward at light speed. Customers are expecting safe, touchless transactions and online experiences that are seamless, easy, intuitive and entertaining. The opportunity for retailers to take advantage of this trend is still there for the people that adapt quickly.
Below, we’ve detailed some of the things that should be top of your mind when you do.
