More retailers will not open on Thanksgiving

But the “big boys” like Walmart, Target and Best Buy are expected to be doing business in their stores and online.    As transportation and logistics providers gear up for the holiday season, more retailers are announcing they will not open on Thanksgiving.    “With Black Friday and Thanksgiving foot traffic slowly decreasing and online sales booming, many stores find it unnecessary to open their doors on Turkey Day,” said BestBlackFriday.com, which now lists nearly 100 national and regional retailers that will be closed Nov. 22.    Among the major retailers that have announced they will not open on Thanksgiving are Academy Sports, Crate and Barrel, The Home Depot, IKEA and Lowe’s.   But many major retailers can’t afford to be closed on Thanksgiving, according to BestBlackFriday.com.    “Despite Thanksgiving foot traffic slowly declining, the number of Americans who frequent stores on that day is still extremely high, which means the...

A Simple Method for Tracking B2B Ecommerce Performance

September 21, 2018 • Shawn Arnold Measuring B2B ecommerce performance should be straightforward. Too often, however, measuring means having a complex strategy with confusing key performance indicators aimed at presenting data just for its appearance. In this article, I will offer a simple yet powerful method for tracking B2B performance. Measuring B2B Performance Identify what you should measure. Develop KPIs that align with your sales cycle. Typical areas include customer acquisition, adoption, growth, and retention. Tracking B2B performance isn’t always as straightforward as with B2C. In my experience, B2B transactions are much more complex and can take place across multiple channels over longer periods. For example, buyers often use a website to research and decide what to buy. Then they submit the order via, say, email, electronic data exchange , or phone. In that case, the revenue from an ecommerce website would appear to be zero. But the site played...

B2B Ecommerce: Managing Product Data Sheets

B2B merchants know that producing product literature can be a lot of work. Examples include specification sheets and safety data sheets. Both take time to create and keep current. They can add to a merchant’s already busy workload. The data for the literature comes from different places. Some of it comes from marketing personnel, some from product management, and some from accounting and inventory systems. Regardless, merchants need a system to ensure the most recent sheets are on their websites and otherwise available for sales personnel — possibly in multiple languages. The sheets assist buyers and address always-changing regulations and requirements from, say, the U.S. Department of Transportation and the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration, among other agencies. Moreover, outside parties, such as distributors and print publications, depend on the data, as do third-party services that store the sheets and provide 24/7 access to satisfy regulatory requirements. It is...

5 Tips for Merging B2B Customer Data into B2C

The decision to sell to consumers or businesses has implications not just for marketing and inventory, but also for database management. B2C customer data typically includes first name, last name, physical address, email address, and telephone number. In contrast, B2B data can include company name, title, store location, and warehouse details. A B2B merchant may ship to one store or many. The latter could require parent-child relationships — head office and branches — that will likely necessitate data hierarchies and, potentially, multiple tables. The decision to sell to consumers or businesses has implications not just for marketing and inventory, but also for database management. B2C data frequently includes demographic info, such as the customer’s age, household income, and gender. But B2B companies can track a customer’s annual revenue, industry, locations, and the number of employees. B2C sellers might segment customers by the purchase frequency or type of products. B2B sellers...
