Your email subscribers are likely feeling the economic crunch as much as—if not more than—your business. With that in mind, now is definitely the right time to keep your audience informed of any savings or promotional offers that are available. Even if business has been strong enough in the past that you were able to avoid offering special incentives, marketing in a time of economic uncertainty needs to be performed with an eye toward the future. Fostering customer loyalty now via special offers can pay dividends down the road when the economy rights itself.

Storytelling has long been a staple of good brand marketing. But the concept has taken on more urgency in the digital space, where brands now have the power to engage directly with their customers through web and mobile channels.
The mandate for more sophisticated brand content has introduced a new set of challenges for online retailers—namely, how to integrate traditionally separate marketing and commerce operations to deliver a unified experience to shoppers.
The Issue: The Content and Commerce Divide
Commerce and digital marketing teams tell a familiar story. The commerce team launches an online store on a commerce platform. Commerce and IT focus on the platform and evolve it as the online business grows—focusing on basics such as PCI compliance and product information and expand-ing to more complex integrations. Now they want to add content, such as reviews and engaging media, that will inform and guide shoppers.
Meanwhile, the digital marketing team regards the online store as a missed branding and engagement opportunity and tries to jump in and contribute only to find that the system can’t meet their needs. So marketing goes outside to a digital agency, pays for a separate microsite, and takes their creative production needs elsewhere. And thus a classic divide is formed.

The late 1990s marked AXA Bank’s foray into email marketing. For the first phase of this project, AXA Bank management decided to use a bulk email tool to push Web content to customers. However, this tool rapidly showed its limitations in terms of scalability and functionality. No personalization, tracking or reporting functionality was available, and many operations (such as list management) had to be performed outside the tool, by hand. Marketing teams also required constant IT support, especially as email volumes increased. By 2002, ready for a more sophisticated approach, the bank sought to personalize and expand its online marketing to improve effectiveness.
