Discover what influences consumers to shop and how you can win at every retail opportunity.
Linnworks latest research whitepaper unpacks findings from a survey of 1000 shoppers to find out what they prioritise when deciding where to shop. Fast and easy shopping, and a convenient, frictionless ecommerce purchase experience come out on top. Consumers now expect effortless commerce, and consumer choice will follow the path of least resistance.
Lockdowns in cities around the world over the past year has accelerated this shift to convenience as many consumers came to rely on online shopping for everyday essentials as they juggled working from home and other responsibilities.
Shopping is now an 'always-on' experience and consumers expect to be able to make purchases whenever they need CO.
This sounds ideal for retailers, but to be successful, they need to be able to sell wherever their customers are - by conducting Total Commerce. Once driven almost exclusively by price, today's consumers are increasingly influenced by convenience and ease of purchase, therefore retailers need to offer a frictionless experience, from product discovery right through to their shipping and returns policy. As Linnworks research demonstrates, customer journeys are fragmented and each touchpoint is an opportunity for retailers to win.
