When you combine this mobile usage with the enormous impact of social media, it is clear that these channels will come to dominate digital interaction with brands. The potential benefits for retailers are huge, since social and touch together hold the key to creating a virtuous circle of consumer engagement and brand alignment – driving long term competitive advantage and significant, sustainable increases in conversion and AOV.
