Today’s shoppers expect more. Thanks to the Fourth Industrial Revolution, powerful now technologies are driving entirely new customer experiences, and customers demand more. As artificial intelligence and predictive analytics have reset expectations, shoppers have changed the definition  of their ideal shopping experiences. Today’s consumer wants a retailer to “know me, make it relevant for me, and engage me in more meaningful ways”. To achieve this end, retailers need to fully embrace digital technologies.

What if retailers don’t adapt? In many cases, shoppers will leave. In fact, 73% of shoppers will switch brands for a better retail experience. It’s no wonder there is a growing divide between shopper expectations and retailers’ ability to deliver seamless customer experiences. If retailers do not bridge the gap, then they risk being disrupted and losing market share due to missed expectations.

That’s why Salesforce is excited to announce the launch of Personalize Shopper Marketing, built on the #1 B2C CRM Marketing Platform—Marketing Cloud—to empower retailers to know, personalize, and engage with their shoppers across every channel. Watch the video here to see how it works.
