If a retailer views “Buy Online, Pickup In-Store” as purely e-commerce, they’re losing. Each transaction in which customers pickup in-store is a chance to add value to the relationship.

Some trips may not translate to additional purchases right then and there, but the way a retailer handles pickup can dictate how the customer feels about the brand.
To get the most out of BOPIS, retailers should ask themselves a few important questions.

The telecommunications market is highly saturated. In most of the developed world, nearly everyone who wants a mobile phone has one. There are opportunities for carriers to increase service usage or upsell customers on higher-value devices or services, but each new account generally comes at a competitor’s expense—so customer retention is crucial.

Beyond the time-saving and efficiency benefits, marketing automation enables business processes that are essential to any modern marketing department.

This means you need a disciplined process – known as lead nurturing – to develop qualified leads until they are sales-ready. Done well, nurturing can result in 50% more sales leads at 33% lower cost per lead.

The study highlights the urgent need for companies to consider the full range of customer success and revenue growth activities after the initial sale—collectively called the “revenue lifecycle”—which includes onboarding, adoption, upselling/cross-selling, retention and renewal. The study shows that a company that improves people, processes, technology, data and KPIs in the revenue lifecycle can expect to improve renewal rates by more than 31 points.

Learn how harnessing that data can help retailers cut costs, retain their customers and generate more revenue.
For the most part, even companies using sophisticated technology to provide consistent access and answers across channels still view customer service through a traditional lens of serving the needs of the customer—despite its usefulness in marketing, building brand equity, up- and cross-selling and driving loyalty, as well as capturing the voice of the customer for product and service improvement and new product and service ideas.
