ABOUT THE TOPIC:
Omnichannel is the idea of using all of your channels to create one, unified experience for your customers. This includes both traditional and digital channels, point-of-sale, in-store, and online experiences. Omnichannel marketing creates a seamless message that adjusts to your customer based on their behaviour through your sales funnel, providing the ultimate personalized customer experience. Omnichannel marketing is using digital and/or traditional marketing channels to send a relevant message to a brand’s customers regardless of the customer engaging with the brand, nor the channels used to engage.
