Storytelling has long been a staple of good brand marketing. But the concept has taken on more urgency in the digital space, where brands now have the power to engage directly with their customers through web and mobile channels.
The mandate for more sophisticated brand content has introduced a new set of challenges for online retailers—namely, how to integrate traditionally separate marketing and commerce operations to deliver a unified experience to shoppers.
The Issue: The Content and Commerce Divide
Commerce and digital marketing teams tell a familiar story. The commerce team launches an online store on a commerce platform. Commerce and IT focus on the platform and evolve it as the online business grows—focusing on basics such as PCI compliance and product information and expand-ing to more complex integrations. Now they want to add content, such as reviews and engaging media, that will inform and guide shoppers.
Meanwhile, the digital marketing team regards the online store as a missed branding and engagement opportunity and tries to jump in and contribute only to find that the system can’t meet their needs. So marketing goes outside to a digital agency, pays for a separate microsite, and takes their creative production needs elsewhere. And thus a classic divide is formed.
