Study: Return options, loyalty perks, security boost shopper satisfaction

BY Deena M. Amato-McCoy
Easy returns, exclusive loyalty perks and secure transaction processes top customer wish lists this holiday season.
 
This is the consensus among more than 500 consumers that participated in the “2016 Holiday Retail Report,” from CFI Group and Radial. Based on their recent online shopping experiences, 87% of shoppers said that having multiple return options makes them more likely to purchase a product online. Also, they reported that a synchronized omnichannel platform that allows shoppers to return products in-store or ship them back with ease is a necessity — not an attractive bonus offering.  
 
Meanwhile, 93% of shoppers who sign up for a loyalty program said special promotions influence their decision to sign up. Access to these special promotions is the main motivator for joining loyalty programs, the study said.
 
Finally, 27% of shoppers affected by an incorrectly identified fraudulent charge said that they will no longer shop with that retailer. Another 40% indicate that they will be hesitant to order from that retailer again. This clear negative impact makes effective fraud management a critical capability for retailers, the study reported.

7 ideas for 10X growth

BY Dan Mack

Transformation happens NOT when something new begins but when something old falls apart. Transformation occurs through the process of letting go of the old and embracing the new, including a reorientation, said philosopher Richard Rohr.

The transformative companies are growing at a rate at least 10 times the pace of their competitors. What’s their philosophy and what makes them special?

First, they believe they control their destiny — and it doesn’t matter what industry they are in. Second, success is about something bigger than sales — it is art; it’s purposeful and beautiful.

These companies are not necessarily more innovative, charismatic, faster, smarter or creative. Nor are they always introducing big new ideas, said bestselling business author Jim Collins. 10× companies are more consistent than their competitors. Yes, they are agile — and flexible — but they test the markets with lots of small bets.

And according to researcher Peter Sims, they are not always first to market with their ideas. Being first to market actually is quite overrated and full of risk. 10× organizations are a radical blend of innovation, discipline, purpose and execution.

We all crave certainty. The dark side of many high-performing teams is paranoia gone amok. As Collins reminds us, the very best, highest-performing 10× companies embrace productive paranoia. They experiment, embrace failure as a teacher and simplify their plans, embracing the heart of execution.

In August, Drug Store News and Mack Elevation hosted a special one-day thought leadership summit in Boston, prior to the start of NACDS Total Store Expo. The DSN-Mack Elevation 10× Growth Summit brought together seven leaders, representing a range of experiences, who shared their insights on the leading characteristics and skill sets embraced by 10× growth companies.
