The retail industry has changed significantly in recent years with an accelerated move to e-commerce and digital platforms following the Covid 19 pandemic, with consumers continuing to favour shopping online.
Along with this, across the UK leading European brands have been forced to navigate the ongoing economic challenges with rising inflation knocking consumer confidence and luxury tourists – a key driver for sales – looking for alternative VAT-free destinations.
As a result, many luxury brands that in the past have heavily relied on brick-and-mortar have had to rethink their strategies to overcome this, with the shift to online platforms like marketplaces and dedicated apps becoming a priority. But building a web storefront isn’t always easy to navigate, brands not only need to grow their presence online by driving web traffic to their site, they need to implement various digital marketing strategies to build their online audience – with organic search being a key influencer for this.
To help these brands overcome the challenges of growing their online customer base, Botify has partnered with FARFETCH Platform Solutions to help them boost online traffic, build their brand globally, and inevitably increase sales.
