The dichotomy of selling either online or in person no longer exists. Growing consumer expectations, and a familiarity with the convenience of ecommerce, mean that modern retailers have to ensure that their ‘bricks’ experience connects connect with their ‘clicks’ in a meaningful way. Welcome to ‘hybrid’ retail.
But what are the new rules for the modern retail environment? What kind of relationships do customers expect from brands in person or online? What tech is required to power a hybrid approach?
