With the Shoptalk US conference, March 27-30 in Las Vegas, being a seminal event in retail, you can expect it to shape key conversations for the industry. One of the buzziest topics that we’ll be exploring and clarifying at the Algolia booth (#10018) is how to elevate your site with hybrid shopping experiences that convert users like a dream.

Personalizing shopping experiences across physical and digital realms 

2022 is shaping up to be a year of immense growth possibilities for the retail industry. However, of the 900 decision-makers surveyed in our most recent online commerce trends survey, only 20% said that they were prepared to offer personalized digital shopping experiences that meet today’s UX expectations. Being able to address this gap has placed this small fraction of retailers at a critical advantage over their competitors. 

Added to that, the last two years have been very challenging for the online retail industry, on multiple levels. With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, online retailers saw a significant uptick in the migration of customers to online shopping. Following that, supply chain issues and shortages put significant pressure on retail margins as well as on the ability for businesses to service customers quickly and profitably. 

Being ready with a true, evolving phygital (or hybrid) experience that provides the same conversation opportunities with customers, be it in-store, online, and back again, can help retailers mitigate the impact of these challenges. Being truly phygital, can help retailers compete effectively against online behemoths like Amazon and Alibaba as well as helping smaller niche retailers to maintain and grow their market share.
