How to Capitalize on Omnichannel “Channel Surfing”

written by Bryan House

Having the right omnichannel commerce strategy could mean the difference between retaining a customer and losing a sale. Google research shows that consumers have a fluid relationship with their devices, with 98% of Americans switching between devices in a single day. And devices are playing an increasingly important role in-store – driving up to 80% of in-store visits.

When shopping online, 60% of consumers start at Amazon, even if their purchase ends on a brand’s website (Fun fact: A fast-growing 11% of product searches originate on TikTok). In other words, global shoppers take channel surfing to a whole new level. That’s why it’s as critical to diversify your potential revenue sources as you would diversify your stock portfolio.
