Etude sur les webconsommateurs en France et à l'International

Etude PwC web-acheteurs novembre 2013 from PwC France

Une étude trouvée via le site Frenchweb, et réalisée par PWC. L'idée est de faire une étude comparative sur l'achat en ligne en France et à l'étranger, ainsi que son évolution. Ce que l'on peut voir, c'est que l'Ecommerce dans les pays développés tel que la France ou le Royaume Unis devient mature, avec des croissances qui ralentissent très clairement. Aussi, il faut voir que la part du ecommerce dans l'intégralité du commerce est en train de se stabiliser. Aussi, il va falloir trouver de nouvelles manières de chercher de la croissance, notamment via le multi canal.

Une étude très intéressante, qui donnent des données intéressantes sur la physionomie du Ecommerce en France.

Will Ibeacon really revolutionize Retail?

Ibeacon is obvisouly one of the hottest hype in the retail world. Indeed, the technology represents a lot of advantages for brick&mortar retailers, which still suffers from the Ecommerce competition:
  • Better shopping experience, by proposing updated and customized informations/promotions along the shopper's way
  • Better understanding on how the shoppers go in store, in order to propose more efficient concepts and merchandizing techniques.
The retailers are hence very interested by this technology, even though this one is pretty new and not yet really exploitable. 
But I believe Ibeacon represents also a threat for customers, which may not be to keen on allowing retailers to follow them while shopping.

Indeed, how could a retailer guarantee that its Ibeacon will not be too intrusive? Do a customer really want to have commercial info all the time while shopping? 
Also another question I have: Can Ibeacon, based on customer's infos, could better serve someone instore, than actually a sales representative? 

What is interesting with I beacon, is that it is to me one of the first push mobile marketing tool, which most of mobile marketing tools so far have been "pull" (an application that the person download and active whenever he wants).

For sure, Ibeacon is going to become one of the main topic of this blog.

Convertion rates For French E-Commerce

Shared by @marcsimoncini, the conversion rates depending on the industries. You can clearly see that you have very different results depending on the activity. Probably some room for improvements? I believe so, especially for "ameublement" (meaning furnitures).

Visit Virtually Coles Supermarket In Australia

I wanted to share with you an information I found on the minute retail blog: Australian supermarket chain Coles propose to virtually visit online its new store concept. Actually, I don't think it is the first time that I have seen such an experience. I have already "virtually" visited the new Tesco concept. The interface used is Google maps. You may click here to visit.

First of all, I find the interface very well done. It is easy to hang around the store, and the pics are very neat. You may check out how they merchandise their goods, which is always interesting to do.

Now, I believe it is more a public relation move to publicize Coles, dedicated to retail businessmen, more than aiming a shopper population. Why? Because it doesn't really consist in something that improves the shopping experience. Still, I think this is a great thing to do. How many retailers have been hidden their concepts in order to avoid the competition to compete with them? 

I still remember when I used to be a salesperson at La Fnac, that people were not allowed to take any pics in stores. Same thing when I visited the first time Carrefour Planet, when people told me I should not take any pics as the security staff has been specifically briefed not to let anyone shoot photos.

But in nowadays world, where information is going so fast, it is actually better to let anyone knows what you do good.
