What Is Omnichannel Marketing?

Omnichannel marketing refers to the process of creating your brand’s presence across multiple channels to provide a positive, seamless, and integrated shopping experience throughout the buyer’s journey and beyond.

In today’s world, the modern customer is no longer confined to a single channel or platform for interaction with a brand. Therefore Omnichannel marketing comes into the picture.

Comparison of Traditional, E-Commerce, Multichannel and Omnichannel marketing

It aims to deliver a completely seamless, integrated, and unified brand experience to an existing customer or potential buyer across multiple channels, devices, and touchpoints. The channels can be traditional or digital depending on the need and interest of consumers. The goal of this marketing strategy is to develop high-quality and long-lasting relationships with customers, no matter where they are from and what device they are using, with a consistent brand face, message, and better experience.

Example of Omnichannel Marketing

  1. You probably remember the last time you purchased something online on your first visit to that channel. Your purchase journey went like this:
  2. While scrolling down your Facebook or Instagram news feed, you might come across an ad that suddenly grabs your attention.
  3. After clicking on that ad, you were redirected to the landing page of the brand that would have the product’s details, ratings, and reviews.
  4. You really liked the product and you clicked on Buy Now, but some other ad or distraction appears, causing you to leave that website immediately without completing the purchase process.
  5. After a few days, you received an email asking you to complete the payment process. The store also provided a discount and offered free shipping since you were a first-time buyer.
  6. This compelled you to buy the product because they made you an offer you couldn’t refuse.

This is how omnichannel marketing works. It only focuses on customers’ needs and aims to provide the best buying experience to them. 

Difference between Omnichannel and Multichannel Marketing?

Omnichannel and multichannel marketing are two different terms that always create confusion. Let’s understand both the terms by learning the difference between the two.

It focuses on delivering a consistent, personalized experience for shoppers across all channels and devices and puts the customer at the centre of all marketing activities.

Multichannel Marketing spans several different channels, like social, mobile, direct mail, and a physical location. Every channel is separate and independent from the others, each working independently of each other, having their own strategy and goals.

Benefits of Omnichannel Marketing

It is designed to address the way today’s buyers make purchases and give them a great experience from start to finish. Your business can gain a lot of benefits from implementing omnichannel marketing.

Let’s learn about the benefits –

1) Gain Loyalty and Retention

The best practices that online brands and businesses must follow to generate loyalty are – provide quality service, interact with the audience, provide value for money and give satisfactory answers to visitor/customer queries.
