Vocab for Marketers: Omnichannel Marketing

What does omnichannel mean, and how do eCommerce marketers use it?


Omnichannel marketing is a cross-channel sales and marketing approach that creates a seamless, holistic experience for customers. This strategy helps improve engagement, drive brand loyalty, and increase conversions and revenue. 

How eCommerce Marketers Use Omnichannel Marketing

Marketers utilize omnichannel marketing, sales, and service strategies to create a cohesive and unified customer experience across all touchpoints—both online and in-store. Here are a few ways eCommerce marketers can implement an omnichannel approach to ensure their marketing, sales, and service strategies work together toward profitability.

Consistent messaging: Maintain consistent brand identity and messaging across all channels, including social media, email, eCommerce sites, and physical stores. 

Continuous customer data collection: Collect and analyze data on a continuous basis  from all prospect, lead, and customer interactions to understand buyer behavior and preferences—all which help you better personalize marketing efforts to your ideal customer.

Recurring personalization strategy: Use that same consumer data to provide personalized recommendations and offers to your shoppers, regardless of the channel they are using.

Periodic cross-promotions: Run offers across multiple services and channels to encourage consumers to engage with your brand in different ways.

Unified customer service approach: Provide consistent, responsive customer service and communications across all viable channels, so customers receive the same level of support whether they are shopping online or in a store.
