Gone are the days when retailers sold primarily through brick and mortar, and online was an afterthought. Today’s successful retailers often have to juggle a variety of selling channels -- from your own website and stores, to wholesale retailers to online marketplaces. That makes it harder than ever for companies to know where to invest their time and money.
At the Modern Retail Summit LIVE, retail executives will come together virtually to discuss effective strategies for driving sales by building a loyal customer base both online and offline. What role should your stores play? How can you acquire the most customers without burning through your marketing budget? What changes can you make to your website that will improve conversion?Buy Passes
