Interactive Retail

Stores focus on customer engagement as primary business strategy

Implications - When product differentiation is non-existent and advertising goes unnoticed, consumer engagement becomes key in business success. Many retailers are turning to interactive shopping experiences to solidify relationships. Since purchases are often the result of emotions, maximizing a customer's hands-on experience within a retail environment -- whether in a physical store or online -- may increase positive feelings and brand loyalty.
