Multi-Channel Retailing: How to Maximize Revenue

Multi-channel retailing is a marketing strategy that offers consumers a number of ways to buy products. Some channels include:

  • – retail stores
  • – online stores
  • – mobile stores

Furthermore, multi-channel retailing maximizes revenue by offering consumers options and convenience. The best multi-channel retailing strategy will offer consumers quality experience whichever option they select.

Understanding multi-channel retailing is vital for business owners. 71% of consumers use mobile phones for product research. Therefore, a company could miss a large pool of potential clients if they neglect mobile channels. Most importantly, consumers who shop online as well as in-store have a higher value than consumers who shop on only one channel. This means that companies should encourage shopping on multiple channels in order to increase net profit.
