Cross-selling and Upselling through Personalization

People getting emails from e-commerce retailers for the launch of new collections, ‘items you may like,’ and ‘inspired by your browsing history,’ ‘your cart item is on discount,’ and ‘extra 20% off on similar styles’ is not uncommon these days. By leveraging massive amounts of customer data and analyzing recurring patterns, fashion retailers can personalize offerings and cross-sell and upsell products. Companies can increase customer loyalty and engagement by leveraging data analytics to create effective acquisition and retention campaigns.

Managing Seasonal Fluctuations

One of the biggest challenges facing fashion retailer is that of managing seasonal fluctuations. Retailers like ZARA are relying on real-time insights to shorten seasonal cycles to meet the changing customer preferences. Digital analytics provides the fashion retailers to have more flexibility in their supply chain responsiveness.
