In today’s Internet Retailing newsletter we report on retailers from New Look and House of Fraser to AO World as they search out new markets and respond to customer demand.
It’s notable that customer demand is pulling in several directions: today we’re reporting on how traders are juggling demand from new markets including China and Germany, while responding to growing traffic from mobile devices, while we also report on studies from IMRG and JDA that underline the importance of getting delivery right. These are pressured though exciting times for retailers as widen their horizons ever further. Today we have some timely advice from Vikki Zelkin of The Grass Roots Group on what to do when, inevitably, service falls short of expectations and complaints are made.
The next Internet Retailing webinar will be on June 18, when senior analyst Amy DeMartine from Forrester Research joins LogMeIn senior director, products, Ross Haskell to debate what it is that customers now demand from multichannel and ecommerce retailers, and how retailers can best respond. Delighting your customers with the right support takes place on June 18 at 2.30pm. To find out more and register for the free event, click here.
