The State of Retail in the Age of Amazon

Posted by Scott Christopher on Mon, Jul 10, 2017 @ 12:07 PM

We like following the retail sector, working with several clients in the space. And I--as a shopper--enjoy seeing brands innovate to surprise and delight me to earn my business in this current era of e- and m-commerce. It has certainly been a tumultuous year for retail, though with weekly announcements of store closings by stalwart industry brands like Macy's and Sears. The evolution to online shopping by the average American consumer has been especially swift in recent months, led by e-commerce giant Amazon. Prime membership is now estimated to be up to 80 million in the US, most of them in affluent households; and Amazon has shown no signs of slowing its aggressive stance in retail, with announcements late last month aimed at disrupting both grocery (Whole Foods Market purchase) and clothing stores (Prime Wardrobe). The stakes for retailers couldn't be higher and the demand to adapt couldn't be greater. But does all this mean brick-and-mortar storefronts are dead?

Posted by Scott Christopher on Tue, Dec 23, 2014 @ 17:12 PM

This month's good media idea features something we should've written about a long time ago: online video. This is an area that is growing by leaps and bounds every month, with new publishers popping up daily, many of them creating original content, and in-banner video options becoming more prevalent. Plus, this short-form video content is very "snackable" with high view-through rates and optimal to reach potential customers where they are - on their mobile devices.

Good Media Idea: Macy's Image Search app

Posted by Scott Christopher on Wed, Nov 26, 2014 @ 15:11 PM

We have slacked as of late on highlighting good media ideas we have noticed. But this one stood out to us, especially in light of it being Thanksgiving week with Black Friday right around the corner. This month's idea comes from retailer Macy's and their new mobile app that debuted earlier this fall. The app allows customers to snap a photo with their phone of an outfit or accessory; and then similar looks and items that are on Macys.com are sent to them in-app (Ok, ok - we know.
