2013 Forward Features List
InternetRetailing magazine will focus on the following areas in 2013. Each subject will be covered across a number features looking separately at the subject from the point of view of strategy, marketing, logistics, operations and IT.
InternetRetailing In-Store (IRIS)
Recent developments have brought the store front of mind: click and collect, digital signage, tablets, kiosks and of course mobile ‘merge’ the store experience with the customer’s own digital devices. A new in-store section in the magazine (IRIS) will address the opportunities of the digital store renaissance and the new approaches to selling in the digital age.

July – Customer
Understanding the customer is one part of the equation. Designing the user experience, personalising all touchpoints and engaging for a continuing 2-way relationship all have to be factored into the journey from brand agnostic to brand advocate. This issue looks at personalisation, social commerce and techniques for engaging and increasing customers’ lifetime value.
September – Cross-channel
From multichannel to cross-channel to omni-channel or total retail. Whatever the term used it means the same for customers. In this issue we look at the technology, staff, operations and logistics to enable consumers to continue their journey to purchase anytime, anyhow, anywhere and how the high street is evolving to match and lead customer behaviour. This issue will also include a preview of the Internet Retailing 2013 Conference.
November – International
