Today’s Discussion For the Brands and Retailers the advantage of Digital Coupons depends heavily upon enabling an accelerated and efficient process of distribution, targeting, clearing, with rapid access to analytics. On the consumer side, Digital Coupons offer shoppers a variety of new and easy ways to save without having to clip, store, sort through and handle paper coupons. Finally, Digital Coupons must be abundant, represent meaningful value, and relevance for the shopper to engage. Stakeholder ROI and Reportage Abundant and Relevant Brand Offers and Content Consumer- Friendly Technical Access Sweet Spot Honing In on the Digital Coupon Sweet Spot
Topic One Retail and Brand Stakeholders: The promise of digital couponing for both retailers and brands was the ability to flexibly build digital promotions at much lower costs than traditional paper communicated deals. In addition, access to analytics for both retailer and brand was to enable quick evaluation of results so that promotions could be refined while being executed. Are we enjoying those promised benefits?..... If not, what can we do to enhance the retailer and brand proposition?
Topic Two Consumer Ergonomics : The use of Digital Coupons is growing, albeit from a very small base. Even with the rapid adaptation of smart phones, shopping apps, and other digital shopping aides, (EDO) coupons remain less than two percent of coupons redeemed. What can be done to increase consumer adaptation of EDO coupons? Digital Coupons
Topic Three Abundant, Relevant Content: Consumer behavioral data tells us that despite having access to 50,000-100,000 sku’s in their stores, shoppers tend to focus on several hundred items and mostly those with high house hold category penetration. What is the long and short term prognosis for offering sufficient high value, targeted offers and content on items shoppers frequently buy? and ……. How important is the improvement/expansion of content to the growth of digital coupons?
Closing Thoughts What are top three elements/factors related to Digital Coupons you believe the industry should focus on in 2015?
