NEW YORK, NEW YORK--(Marketwired - Jan. 8, 2014) - Having executed immersive retail experiences for name brands around the world such as L'Oreal, RadioShack, Build-A-Bear Workshop, Richtree Natural Market Restaurants and Mashreq Bank, Peter Rivera, head of Infusion's full-service Digital Agency, has observed nine simple tenets that ensure companies get maximum impact and return-on-investment from their retail experience activities.
"Technology has transformed the brick and mortar shopping experience, but technology without the consumer and services at the center is doomed to failure. Although it may not be immediately possible to hit all of these aspects of retail experience strategy in the first iteration of a digital engagement, it is important to try to hit as many as possible," said Peter.
One of the tenets, "Store-as-Platform" relates to thinking about a store as an inter-related continuum that flows across other channels and is powered by data. This "halo" around a store, enabled through new technologies, creates personalized and more lasting relationships with shoppers.
To illustrate this and the rest of the tenets Peter will share lessons from recent projects, as well as examples from other industries.
