Five steps to an effective omnichannel marketing effort

Retail is clearly being shaken up by mobile-oriented consumers. Online sales are growing year-on-year and volume is expected to hit $523bn by 2020 in the US. This shift has compelled even established brick-and-mortar enterprises to shore up their online presence.

However, one trap that many traditional businesses fall into when figuring out their online presence is failing to optimise their customer experience for both online and offline channels.

Businesses are often compelled to just put up online channels for the sake of having one, but they offer no difference between the two. The consequence of this is that channels may end up competing against instead of complementing each other. This is where an omnichannel strategy comes into play.

1. Decide if your business is ready

Having an online presence is pretty much a given these days. For brick-and-mortar, having a website and social media presence are essential to letting people know your business exists. With the tools available today, it does not require much in terms of investment to get into these channels.

Many think that online channels should be online stores, since many would want to anticipate the shift to web and mobile as channels for consumers. This is not necessarily the case. The experience you provide is actually dependent on your products and services.

If you have a purely online business, it is a very important matter to know why you are venturing into physical channels. The brick-and-mortar game might bear a significant difference to your current setup.

Either way, expect investments in people and infrastructure to be made when crossing over to different channels.

2. Rethink your customer experience

You should not be limited to an online store as your online channel’s function. You must think of an omnichannel experience as providing a complementary and seamless customer experience across the different modes of access.

For example, let us say your business is a service business. Unless you deliver to customers or provide offsite services, having a fully functional store might not be the best function of your web or mobile channel. In such cases, perhaps your online channel could primarily feature information about your services and a reservation system for them to book you. That said, you could still explore enabling online purchases for special token items or gift cards for purchase, but it might not be the primary function.

Take Starbucks for example. They have an online store where you can buy items like drinkware, which has a rewards app where you can top up your Starbucks card and check rewards. The brick-and-mortar stores are, of course, where you get your coffee. They have effectively compartmentalised the Starbucks experience so that each one serves a unique function towards the whole coffee experience with minimal overlaps.

3. Consolidate your online and physical systems

One of the tricky parts of managing an omnichannel experience is making sure systems for both online and brick-and-mortar channels work in tune with each other.

Inventory management might be a tricky area if you do not have integrated systems. If you are working with the same stocks and your online and offline channels are not synchronised, then you might have problems keeping track of what items get sold, where, and when you might run out.

Another way is to keep users updated with the status of their transactions. If your setup allows online ordering and physical pickup, perhaps you can deploy a mobile app that notifies users as the product progresses through your fulfillment process.

It would be advantageous to use an integrated retail management platform that consolidates your point-of-sale and e-commerce activities. Cloud-based services like Vend offers inventory management that tracks stocks, filled orders, and even returns.

Being cloud-based means these services runs both your online and brick-and-mortar and are synchronised at all times. You can check your system anywhere at any time.

4. Plan and launch your campaign

Having an omnichannel setup means your marketing and sales campaigns need not be compartmentalized anymore. Keep in mind that the best way you can reach your customers now if through your online — especially mobile — channels. Adults spend almost two hours online on social media every day. By 2017,75% of internet use is expected to be mobile. Thus, you need to design the flow for your customers around these channels.

Social media will be the best place to share information, engage with the audience, and generate interest. Your website or mobile app will be the best place to contain more information about your products and services. You can even ask users to subscribe to your newsletter for digital discount coupons, which they can use to buy items in your physical store. With your newsletter or app, you can keep them updated about what’s new with your business through email or push notifications.

Keep in mind that you would also want to inspire customer loyalty, so avoid viewing your flow as a linear process. Rather, visualise it as a cycle in which you can continuously interface with and generate business from your customers.

5. Track your progress with analytics

A clear way to see how your omnichannel strategy is working is by measuring it. Thanks to analytics, it is possible to see how well your campaigns are doing, even if they span across multiple channels.

Social media channels like Facebook have analytics available by default. Embedding trackers to your website can help track your traffic sources and your customer’s behavior while online. Retail management platforms also have analytics features. With these, you can actually see where your customers are coming from and if your flow works.

From these figures, you can then gain insights on which parts of your customer experience needs adjusting.

Improve your UI for seamless experience

As consumer behavior shifts and evolves, so should your campaigns. That is why it is necessary to plan, execute, and track your progress in implementing your omnichannel channel strategy. Keep in mind that customers want an effortless experience across channels, so you will need to continuously strive to provide a seamless experience for them. Later on you can even experiment with brick-and-mortar technologies like beacons and digital displays to provide a truly immersive experience.

Five ways to simplify a busy work schedule

When a company is burdened with all the work it can handle, the stress of running a business at full capacity can leave management running in circles and making amateur mistakes. Everyone knows that the key to expanding without becoming overwhelmed is to adhere to a strict schedule, but what do you do when the schedule itself is so packed that just looking at it begins to overwhelm you?
Here are five things any business can do to tackle a super busy work schedule with ease:

1. Use booking and scheduling software

First and foremost, if you’re doing all of your scheduling manually with a basic calendar or spreadsheet, that’s probably one of the reasons why your current schedule seems like it’s too much to handle. Using booking and appointment scheduling software will help your employees manage and adhere to the work schedule with less effort and in a more professional manner.

2. Check and monitor progress frequently

Any time you’re having trouble sticking to what otherwise seems to be a feasible schedule, it’s time to start checking and monitoring employee performance and progress. Assess and address any obvious workflow deficiencies to ensure that you won’t run into the same problems in the future. Keeping a closer eye on your company affairs is something that must be done when you’re trying to fulfill a busy schedule without any hiccups.

3. Allocate tasks more efficiently

Sometimes a schedule can seem more packed than it really is because you’re not properly managing your workforce. Look for ways to get tasks done quicker by spreading them between more employees or re-examining employee capabilities to determine who would be the best fit for the tasks you’re assigning. If you’re regularly following the advice in step 2, this step should be even easier because you’ll have a better idea of what each employee is capable of.

4. Bring in extra help if needed

If after completing the steps above you’re still having trouble accommodating appointments and meeting deadlines, it might be time to bring in the reinforcements. Hiring a few extra employees might sound like hassle and additional payroll burden, but it’s worth the time and investment if it means your company will be able to continue expanding without sacrificing punctuality.

5. Follow through On your end

After you’ve done everything you can to facilitate proper schedule management and employee productivity, the final step is to make sure you’re doing everything possible on your end. Many times company owners and managers will take the hands-off approach and try to outsource and micromanage things that they could easily be doing themselves. Don’t fall for this common mistake. When your schedule is packed, do everything within your personal power to keep the momentum going.

A busy schedule doesn’t have to feel busy

In closing, just because your business is fully booked, that doesn’t mean you have to feel stressed as if it’s a bad thing. In fact, if you look back to when you first started the endeavour, you probably envisioned an ideal outcome looking a lot like your current maxed out schedule. Use the tips above to simplify the challenge and you’ll start to feel productive and satisfied rather than busy and overwhelmed.

Company news: Introducing a new dental insurance package

Insurance is designed to assist you financially when disaster strikes, and dental health insurance follows the same principle.
But dental disasters such as breaking a tooth do not happen often; rather, people spend time and money on common dental events such as cavity fillings, extractions and braces for children. Without dental cover, these treatments can be cripplingly expensive.

If you have downsized from a comprehensive medical aid plan to a more cost-effective and simpler hospital plan, you’ll need a dental policy that covers you for common dental treatments. Throw in cover for crowns on broken teeth and root canal – if you are unlucky enough to suffer an abscess – and immediately a dental insurance policy presents a proposition that offers excellent value.

This is why Denis has put together the Denis Dental Insurance Policy which provides comprehensive dental cover for the treatments you and your dependants are most likely to need. Most insurers make use of actuaries and mathematicians to determine cover, but Denis offers the expertise of 10 full-time dental practitioners – based in different countries around the world – who have spent a great deal of time investigating how best to insure their client’s teeth. The policies have over a decade of practical data experience behind them, as Denis knows what works for the average family over the long term; better still, their product holds no large annual premium hikes as so often happens in health cover. Denis Dental Insurance is designed to be sustainable over the long term.

Financial cover is one thing, but the very best commodity insurers can provide their clients is the information they need to manage their own risk. It is all very well knowing that you are covered for that possible root canal, but let’s face it: you would rather avoid having it in the first place! That’s where the Smile programme spreads a little magic: Smile is an ongoing educational programme that is activated at times when you need information, e.g. when you interact with your dentist or insurer. At such times, you need to make informed decisions about proposed treatments and costs. You will need answers to questions such as, ‘Are there alternative treatment options? Is there a downside to this particular treatment and, if so, what is it? Is the dental fee in line with the market?’

And did you know that Denis Dental insurance pre-pays treatment? How does it do this? Well, in terms of the laws governing health insurance in SA, the insurance product itself may not cover treatment – it must cover pathology. This means that once a dental professional has made a diagnosis, i.e. before any treatment commences, this insurance policy may pay the insured the benefit based on the treatment plan or pathology report. The insured therefore has funds to assist immediate settlement often required by dental health professionals. By law the policies may not pay providers of service, but pre-payment means that the insured is armed with funds by the time treatment is rendered. Immediate settlement of professional fees often attracts discounts from the provider. Armed with upfront funding and appropriate clinical information from the Smile programme, insured dental patients are well placed to manage their own dental risk.

The single best way to control dental risk is, of course, hygiene – not the type where you go to a dental hygienist, but the type you apply at home. You may have been brushing your teeth, but you still get cavities and want to know why. You may have heard that diet is a contributing factor to dental decay and gum disease, and you want to know more. How and when you eat may be as important as what you eat, but what does the contents of your fridge have to do with cavities? Which cavities can heal themselves and so don’t need to be filled?

Smile addresses these issues and more on an ongoing basis, in a unique, personalised and accessible manner. There is no point sending clients dental textbooks: firstly, they contain too much technical information and, secondly, most of it is irrelevant to you and your family. Smile is triggered to provide only what you need, when you need it. Smile only operates electronically so make sure you provide your dental insurer with your e-mail address.

Denis Dental Insurance is underwritten by major international underwriters so your risk is in good hands. With more than 1.5-million lives under their management, you can be sure that the Denis administration system will process your claims promptly and efficiently.

Offline marketing: Why your business location matters

These days, it seems that everyone is always talking about online marketing techniques and strategies, but the truth is that offline marketing is still very much important. In addition to advertising yourself offline through various mediums, you also need to consider the actual location of your business. After all, where you’re located could have a big impact upon the overall success of your company long term.
Royalty-free photo

Keep reading to learn more about why your business location matters, and why you should be looking into modern locations in the biggest cities in the country.

Where you work will change your costs

Your business’s location could have an impact upon how much you spend every month in both fixed and variable expenses. For example, you might be forced to follow a set of rules and regulations concerning things like minimum wage or waste management, or your taxes may vary from one location to another. Even energy bills can vary from one place to another, so you should look into these concerns before you decide to open for business. Certain states and cities are also friendlier to businesses in the sense that they have lower taxes in an effort to boost their local economy, so keep that in mind as well.

Accessibility for customers

If you are running a business that depends upon customers coming through your door, you need to be located in a place that gets good foot traffic. You also need to have plenty of parking available, and it should be easy to drive to your location and take public transport there as well. The goal is to make your company as accessible as possible to all of your customers. And beyond catering to existing customers, you also want to be in a prominent enough location where people will see your building, get curious, and decide to get more information on what you are all about.

Be where your target audience is

In addition to being easy to get to, your location should also be in an area where your target audience already is. For example, if you run a business that caters to a high-end customer base, you should not be located in an area where people will not have the budget to purchase your goods and services. Also, if you are a B2B type of company that works with other businesses rather than directly with consumers, you should be located in an area where your business clients will be located. Not only will this be convenient for your customers, regardless of who they are, but it will also make it easier for you to generate sales because you will be readily available to them, unlike your competition.

These are just a few of the many reasons why, when it comes to offline marketing for your business, you should definitely factor in where your company will be located. With the right location, you can have the right foundation on which you can build your customer base and grow your organisation from the bottom up.

There have been many instances whereby insurances that include dental care will fail to fully support the expenses incurred for dental care of a family.

As such, it is not made to cover most of the expenses that will be incurred in a dental care service. In getting a supplemental dental insurance coverage, careful selection should be made in consideration of your foreseen dental needs. If you think there is a real need for your son to have later on a dental brace, then you can go for a supplemental dental insurance coverage for braces. Do not ever think that a supplemental dental insurance will cover for all your family’s dental care needs. Again, examine the policy. Read the fine print and know what are you covered for under the agreement. It would be more to your advantage if before you decide on a supplemental plan, you first try a research on supplemental dental insurance plan. Researching on this subject in the internet can give you a good idea about the many supplemental dental care plans in relation to the exact coverage of the plan and the cost that you have to fork out as your monthly premium. Following your research, visit the insurance company concerned and have them give you a sample of the policy of your intended supplemental dental care plan to get and examine it for any phrase or words that you might not fully comprehend. If there is any, ask them and be fully clarified about it. After you have fully understood the fine print, you can now start your application for the supplementary dental insurance plan that you would like to have for your family’s dental protection.
