Omnichannel Marketing Changing the Spirits Industry

Omnichannel marketing is having a significant impact on the spirits industry and it all began back in 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic. At that time many companies were forced to make many changes to adjust the way they engage with their customers and promote their products by adding various touchpoints to create a seamless omnichannel journey.

Due to the evolution of the customers’ shopping journey, we can say that the lines between the physical and the digital shopping experience are blurring. But what does omnichannel even mean?

What is Omnichannel Marketing?

According to marketingevolution.com omnichannel marketing is the seamless integration of branding, messaging, and online and offline touch points as consumers move down the sales funnel,  enabling a more impactful, customer experience. 

How is Omnichannel Marketing Changing the Spirits Industry?

In my opinion, the spirits industry has been changed by omnichannel marketing in the use of e-commerce strategies, personalization techniques, and how customers are engaged.

  1. E-commerce: As previously mentioned, 2020 played a significant role in how omnichannel marketing strategies were applied by various companies and industries. In the spirits industry, this was no different, for example, many spirits companies rushed to get on as many online platforms as possible to make it easier to sell their products directly to consumers. This would all be connected to the way consumers were shopping in a store, on a website, or even on a mobile app. Think of Total Wine, Drizzly, Cocktail Courier, and even Instacart.

  1. Personalization: Because many consumers were already online trying to find the easiest solution to buy a product, this offered an incredible opportunity in the spirit industry. Thanks to the large amount of customer data available, companies were able to target specific customers with personalized marketing strategies, and tailoring campaigns, that would resonate directly with the target audience. Personalization was even possible on the product itself offering another level of uniqueness and exclusivity to be able to charge more for a product that a consumer might want.

  1. Customer engagement: Finally, another way in which omnichannel marketing has had a significant impact on the spirits industry is by enabling even more customer engagement, as example companies are using social media platforms to interact with consumers, offer promotions, and giveaways, and provide educational content about their products.

Using technology, data, innovation, personalization, and customer engagement are all part of the omnichannel strategies for companies in the spirits industries that have revolutionized the way we do marketing. Even other industries are currently using this to ultimately increase sales and brand loyalty. In my opinion, all companies should use this to successfully offer a seamless customer experience that will translate into more revenue, sales, and profit.
