Retail is NOT Dead ECommerce Webinar #TechUp featuring ETAILY

The social media era has swept the globe like no previous movement before it. Social media allows users to interact with individuals all over the world and share films, images, opinions, and personal experiences. Connectivity has increased dramatically as a result of technical advancements, allowing even the most remote locations to access the internet.

The Asia Pacific area has shown a strong response to this new dawn of social networking as the rest of the world has. The region's social media consumption has exploded, with China, India, Indonesia, and Japan leading the way in terms of monthly active users.

Furthermore, Filipinos spend the most time on social media each day, much exceeding the worldwide average, and were followed by Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and India. As a result, it should come as no surprise that Asia Pacific has a robust social media presence.

Smartphones and linked gadgets have been more readily available to Asia Pacific populations in the period of consumerism and increased levels of disposable income, which has supported the region's expansion and surge in social media usage.

Retail is NOT Dead. TechUp Retail Webinar [8.17.2021]

The rhetoric that "retail is dying" is false. In reality, in this post-Covid era, retail is rapidly evolving to fulfill consumer demands for in-store innovation and service solutions for their purchasing needs. E-commerce is one of the hottest topics right now, but it's not just about placing your things on the internet and hoping someone would buy them. It does not compete with traditional retail; rather, it complements and grows it. It's not just about sales; you need to build relationships with your customers and then personalize your connection with them through the correct in-store experiences that offer them reasons to return.

Tenant mixtures are evolving and changing in reaction to changes in customer behavior, which is one of the current innovations in play. Prior to Covid, we witnessed tenants consolidate their space, as well as the closure of underperforming stores. Certain retail categories, such as supermarkets, pharmacies, and athleisure tenants, were, on the other hand, expanding. This is due to buyers' concentration on necessities, health and beauty products, and shifting fashion preferences.
