From shopping malls to ecommerce, in-store wi-fi to natural shampoo, Logan Paul to Green Bean, retail innovation was the subject of Insider’s latest Spark event.
Nick Richardson, founder of the Insights Family harvests data that retailers can use to make smart decisions. A famous example he gave was when the company surveyed consumers of Prime the energy drink that has become iconic in the younger generation through its launch by Instagram influencers Logan Paul and KSI.
He found that the most popular shop among those customers was JD Sports – the message being that Prime would sell well in JD and was just one example of how such market research can work.
Muktar Mahama of the Very Group talked about how the brand is utilising augmented reality to improve the customer experience.
