The Omni-Experiential Future of Retail Marketing

The pandemic has accelerated change in retail, but particularly for small to mid-sized independent retail.  Pre-pandemic, the store was the focus of the brand, and driving in-store traffic was the main goal of most marketing.  Now, and in the post-pandemic future, consumers expect many (omni) ways to shop, interact, and buy from a brand.  This talk is an exploration of this trend and how to get on the front (and profitable) side of this trend.
