CoreMedia Europe moves into the Klöpperhaus: Hello hybrid work!

There could hardly have been a better way to summarize how CoreMedia envisions the future of coworking in the headoffice than here in the German real estate DEAL Magazine: "Together, they developed a concept to significantly reduce the previous office space of approximately 2,400 m² in the future and to adapt it to the current needs of modern working environments of the software development company. In the future, the combination of coworking and the company's own office space will ensure that each of the employees has a place in the office, provided they choose not to work in a home office."

The Crucial Checklist for Optimizing Your eCommerce Tech Stack Build

Many organizations today have eCommerce stores, so much so, that competition for customer’s business has never been more intense. There are potentially thousands of other stores offering the same goods and services that you provide.

In fact, total global eCommerce sales amounted to more than $4.2 trillion in 2020. That’s estimated to rise to over $5 trillion in 2022. Online stores are sprouting up all over the place, and they aren’t about to disappear.

The takeaway? Online shopping is a big deal, and it’s only becoming bigger every year.

The Role of Product-Aligned Storytelling in DTC Marketing

The Role of Product-Aligned Storytelling in DTC Marketing

As I discussed in my last post, Direct-to-Consumer (DTC) sales and marketing strategies are transforming the way that consumer brands interact with their retailers and customers. This is particularly true for direct-to-consumer brands such as Nike, Under Armour, Puma, Lululemon, Peloton, and more. Last time I gave an overview of the trends transforming the industry and highlighted a few tactics that sporting goods brands could pursue to ensure their direct-to-consumer future without alienating their traditional retailers.

Getting Started with A/B Split Testing

or an expert in Marketing, the term “A/B testing” or "split testing" goes hand-in-hand with “Optimization”, “Improving landing page KPIs” and “Increasing conversion rates”. This term is used so often and means so many things to so many people that it’s hard to find a beginner’s view on the topic. My esteemed colleague Sigrid already talked about split testing and how easy it is to start these experiments with CoreMedia Content Cloud in her well-read blog post “Stop Watching the Crystal Ball”.

How to Elevate Your Digital Business in a World of Flux

Is it just me or is there a new buzzword every year? I remember when AI (Artificial Intelligence) and ML (Machine Learning) were the “it” buzzwords of the time. Fast forward to 2022, the new buzzwords seem to be Metaverse and Blockchain. If this has taught us anything, it’s that our world is in a constant state of flux.

Flux and Flow - Thoughts on 2022 for Marketers

As a marketer, I have been thinking a LOT about what 2022 will hold as I put pen to paper on next year’s marketing plan. Most every marketer I know is in the same mode. And as I look forward, I always try to take some time to look back.

Playing to Win with Direct-to-Consumer Marketing Strategies

Playing to Win with Direct-to-Consumer Marketing Strategies

The last couple of years have been hard on all brands. But it’s been especially hard on companies that sell to athletes and casual sports fans. Brands that mostly sell via department stores, big-box stores, and other retail channels are facing new challenges and rivals.

Consumer Shopping Trends Inspired by the Pandemic

Consumer Shopping Trends Inspired by the Pandemic

When the pandemic hit last year, consumer shopping trends drastically shifted. Pre-pandemic businesses were already moving to digital platforms, but the pandemic was a true forcing function. When the world shut down in March 2020, we were told it would only be a 3-week quarantine, which I, like many others, naively believed.

How digitally evolved are you?

Evolution is adaptation to change. Will you survive?

Keeping up in a fast-paced digital world can be a struggle. Whether your business is still stuck in prehistoric times, or already fully-evolved, finding out where you fall on the Digital Evolution Model will help you stay competitive.

Stage 1: Fragmented: Multiple Channels

You’re a digital dinosaur!

You have a beautiful website, but with fragmented digital experiences, you run the risk of extinction.

It’s time to evolve.

Your audiences want a seamless experience, no matter what's happening behind the scenes. When your experience is different or difficult, it’s important to start with the basics, such as cultivating a holistic approach to online digital experiences. Realign your teams, platforms, processes, goals, and metrics around a comprehensive view of the online experience. Focus on the end-to-end customer journey cutting across channels, desktop and mobile.

Stage 2: Integrated: Multiple channels

You’re a fish!

Signs of exciting life are starting to form. Your DX is responsive and adaptive but it’s not quite personalized yet.

Keep swimming!

The integration of your brand content across every touchpoint (website, online store, social media, emails, apps, point of sale) creates immersive experiences. These flagship sites combine content-rich brand experiences with immediate conversion capabilities. Business teams and marketing are closely aligned. However, while the digital experience is responsive and adaptive, it’s not yet personalized.

Stage 3: Instant: Global expansion

You’re a crocodile!

You’re taking it global. Speed and scalability are key and just like a crocodile, you’re fast…but you’re clumsy.

Oh snap!

In this stage, the online digital experience becomes completely dynamic. You need content that is global, yet relevant, with plenty of local insights: Who is the user? Are they using a mobile phone? Is it raining where they are? Is it snowing? If it is, maybe they need warm, waterproof boots. All of this contextualized information creates a better user experience. With one global orchestration, you’re able to adapt everything, in whatever country or language you choose – while keeping turnaround times low. So keep evolving.

Stage 4: Dynamic: Real time personalization

You’re a lion!

You’re reaching more customers in more countries and languages than ever before, and now you’re finally hunting and collecting info with precision.

But you can do more to keep your brand roaring!

As you graduate to the Instant level, you’re able to rapidly update everything - not just in one language and for one country, but in 20 languages and for 100 countries. Speed and scalability are key, driven by the need to roll out global campaigns in all languages and all touchpoints and make updates in minutes or hours, not weeks. But there’s still more to do to reach nirvana.

Connect with an expert
Stage 5: Immersive: Elevated experiences

You’re Captain Content!

You’ve done it! You have opposable thumbs AND you’re saving the world with your seamless, elevated customer experiences.

You're a superhero in the digital space.

Your digital world and your physical world are blending together in the most complementary way possible. When shoppers visit your store, they’ll be greeted with their pre-selected products. Language changes dynamically depending on country of origin – it's like the whole store was set up just for your one specific customer.

In this final stage, your customer experience is truly immersive and superior, and your flagship store merges your physical and digital world into one, with a truly personalized individual experience.
