Many marketers talk about how critical omnichannel marketing is, and we agree because:
1) Today’s consumers have a nonlinear purchase journey (ex: someone ads a product to their Instagram cart, forgets about it, then notices a promotion for it at the store and decides to buy)
2) Audiences interact with a growing number of channels everyday, so connecting your brand experience between them seems like a sure-fire way to achieve marketing goals (drive more sales, clicks, etc.)
However, it’s not easy to create an omnichannel marketing strategy or even a one-off omnichannel campaign. Why? Because this requires a lot of planning and consideration around the customer journey, including how to connect each of your channels from a creative/call-to-action standpoint, as well as measurement and attribution.
