    Prosper- Where Strategy To Purchase Gifts Prosper Insights & Analytics To prepare for the awaited influx of eCommerce sales, businesses are trying to find methods to handle stock and take advantage of their marketing dollars. I just recently had the pleasure of consulting with Rachel Tipograph, Creator and CEO of MikMak, the leading worldwide eCommerce acceleration platform for brand names like L’Oréal, Lego and Hershey’s, to hear additional shopping insights ahead of the holiday season.

    Gary Drenik: Can you inform me what MikMak is and how it works to accelerate eCommerce for multichannel brands?

    Rachel Tipograph: MikMak is the leading worldwide platform for eCommerce velocity for multichannel brands and supplies analytics and eCommerce enablement software application to assist item manufacturers and CPG companies understand their consumers’ online shopping habits across every major digital and social channel, brand site all the method down to basket level sales information at eRetailers like Amazon, Target, Walmart. We determine online consumer habits and supply insights that brands usage to optimize their marketing for shopping conversions, construct and sector qualified shopper audiences to enhance targeting, manage stock to secure market share, and develop stronger relationships with merchants.

    Drenik: As we are now in the 2nd vacation shopping season considering that the pandemic started, how do you anticipate this year will look compared to last year?

    Tipograph: For vacation shopping 2021, on one hand, with inflation and supply chain issues, customers focused on getting presents in time by getting them early. Our Shopping Index discovered that peak vacation shopping in November occurred between 11/1-11/ 21, when the purchase intent was the highest. Alternatively, we saw purchase intent really drop to pre-peak levels as we approached Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

    It deserves noting that it is more costly than ever to bring an item to market, and with inflation and the rising expense of retail media, the discount rates this year weren’t as impactful as anticipated because many brand names needed to raise their costs.

    2020’s vacation shopping occurred in the middle of Remain at House, therefore it is unlikely that we will see anything genuinely comparable this year.

    According to a current survey from Prosper Insights & & Analytics, consumers plan to have their purchases fulfilled stayed pretty constant from 2019-2021. The concern I would ask is how are unplanned decisions made, as that will show the shifts toward omnichannel preference and last mile shipment.

    For instance, our Shopping Index shows that event-driven shopping celebrations like Mom’s Day or Cinco de Mayo have 2 purchase peaks. The 2nd one takes location within the week of the event for last minute consumers. We likewise saw the appeal of delivery partners like Instacart and Drizly grow year over year. In 2021, they ranked just under Amazon, Target, and Walmart as preferred check out locations. This would tell me that purchases are frequently made even if they are not planned far ahead of time, particularly now that shoppers understand the option exists.

    Drenik: How does MikMak work with brand names to enhance for holiday shopping, both online and in shop?

    Tipograph: It’s everything about testing, learning, and enhancing the effectiveness of the marketing dollar on driving engagement, conversion, and sales. Brands deal with MikMak to understand both their consumers and how they engage throughout the whole shopping journey. That way, when preparing for the holidays, they already know where their consumers will be appealing, and how they go shopping. MikMak likewise supplies Sales Insights so that brand names can comprehend what really drives seller sales, and Benchmark Insights to see how they measure up against their competitors.

    We’re likewise dealing with brand names to fulfill the special obstacles this holiday shopping season so that flexibility and agility are constructed into their eCommerce strategy. When a brand uses MikMak, its consumers can easily switch from shopping online to in store omnichannel to constantly discover where their item remains in stock, so they can have it in hand when and how they desire. Considering that eCommerce is a leading indication for all commerce, this also helps brands forecast demand.

    Drenik: How can brand names make the most of December and the final weeks before the vacations?

    Tipograph: In the final weeks of December, brands need to be checking out local retailers, local inventory, and last mile shipment. This is the time to focus on getting inventory where it is available to buyers who are searching for it, particularly at the last minute.

    Drenik: Do you envision holiday-specific patterns like bigger shopping baskets or channel and merchant choice continuing beyond the vacation season?

    Tipograph: Yes, shoppers will continue to go to where they trust and are familiar with to discover and research study items. TikTok’s popularity, for example, will continue into next year. In 2021, they drove 10% of all eCommerce traffic on the MikMak Platform and in November, saw purchase intent that rivaled that of Pinterest’s. TikTok’s ability to curate content for users based upon videos they like is excellent for eCommerce, and unimpacted by the altering landscape of consumer information privacy. Instacart, too, has reached the 5th most popular check out location in 2021 on the MikMak Platform. This suggests that last mile delivery alternatives will continue to be a necessary part of omnichannel shopping.

    Drenik: Thanks Rachel for putting in the time to connect and sharing your insights on how brands are taking advantage of this year’s vacation shopping season.
