RichRelevance Announces “Respect the Shopper: Harmonizing the Cross-Channel Experience” Program with Paco Underhill
Landmark program for retailers and brands provides new findings and fresh best practices for integrating consumer experiences across all channels
San Francisco, CA – Mar. 9, 2010 –– RichRelevance™, the leading provider of dynamic e-commerce personalization for the world’s largest retailers, today announced “Respect The Shopper: Harmonizing the Cross-Channel Experience,” a three-city road show this March and April featuring RichRelevance CEO David Selinger and Paco Underhill, CEO of Envirosell and author of Why We Buy.
This first-in-kind program will arm retailers and brands with the data, insight, and best practices they need to successfully integrate online, offline, and mobile channels and lead the brand experience in the eyes of their customers. Attendees will benefit from exclusive access to data from a qualitative and quantitative multichannel, landmark study conducted during the last quarter of 2009, as well as networking and learning opportunities with peers from the nation’s most respected brands in New York, San Francisco, and Chicago.
“In 2010 the power and convenience is in the consumer’s hands. Between the web-enabled mobile phone, the Internet and world of brick and mortar, we can find the cracks and inconsistencies in the business models of our merchant community. ‘Respect the Shopper’ aims to provide retailers and brands with concrete strategies to create a streamlined and meaningful experience for the individual shopper – regardless of the channel,” said Paco Underhill, CEO of Envirosell and author of Why We Buy, the all-time best-selling book on retail.
“Amazon was recently named the most trustworthy retailer in a Millward Brown study, thereby recognizing the brand value they create by giving consumers a rewarding, enriched shopping experience,” said David Selinger, CEO of RichRelevance. “As retailers look to create and expand this shopping experience, it is imperative that they take a second look at how their customers interact with their brand across all channels. I’m excited to team with Paco and Envirosell to help guide retailers in providing consumers with a relevant experience wherever they shop.”
“Respect the Shopper: Harmonizing the Cross-Channel Experience” will kick off in New York City on March 24 at The W Union Square at 8:30 a.m. EST. The program will travel to San Francisco on April 27 and then to Chicago on April 29. To register for the events, please visit the links below:
