Ikea’s Plan To Leave The Big Blue Box Store Behind

Ikea’s Plan To Leave The Big Blue Box Store Behind | Future of Retail | Scoop.it
Ikea is the biggest furniture retailer in the world–a title that the company has managed to hold on to, amazingly, without a serious digital presence. In the age of free Amazon same-day delivery, Ikea still does a vast majority of its sales through its physical stores.

Its commitment to digital is quickly increasing, though. People visited Ikea stores 936 million times last year, but they visited Ikea online 2.3 billion times. Meanwhile, the company debuted new ways to shop using AR and VR, partnered with the visual AI startup GrokStyle, and acquired the gig economy company TaskRabbit. In short, Ikea is acting more like a tech company than a furniture maker. And within the next few years, the way you think about shopping at Ikea will probably change entirely, as the company is aggressively pursuing a new, digital identity through its evolving wave of experimental apps.

“The business model of Ikea having a blue box in a cornfield, and you jump in the car with your family and have an ice cream [at the store], is not the only thing we should offer our customer,” says Michael Valdsgaard, leader of digital transformation at Ikea. “For the majority of people in the world, Ikea isn’t accessible. Apps can make Ikea accessible.”

How New Entrants Are Shaping The Future Of Retail

How New Entrants Are Shaping The Future Of Retail | Future of Retail | Scoop.it
Retailers Brandless, Warby Parker and Boxed show that retail innovation and disruption may come from the middle – or rather, by eliminating it.

Via oconnorandkelly

Richard Platt's curator insight, August 15, 2:21 PM

New business models focused on an evolved customer experience are shaping the future of consumer markets – sending new entrants and legacy players the same message: innovate to survive.  The heavyweight competitors that thrive in today’s market are the leaders who introduced us to products at our fingertips, free next-day delivery and subscription-based shopping. But the market is changing and what works today will need to adapt for tomorrow.  I hear a lot of speculation about the next big innovator – who is going to be that next brand that disrupts the market? I look at disruption a little differently. Innovators will not be able to just appear shinier, use new tech and simply deliver on the things that consumers have come to expect – even if those things, like vast inventories at low prices and next-day delivery, are incredibly challenging to get right.  Innovation that disrupts the market will come from a business that is able to harness the power of advanced analytics, new supply chain models and artificial intelligence. Businesses will break through by creating a customer experience that does not exist today . I see these emerging powers in both big and small upstarts and startups.

One such startup is Boxed, an e-commerce business that offers bulk items at wholesale prices without a membership fee, and delivers goods in less than three days. Boxed started in a garage, and today its valued at more than half a billion dollars. The business is successfully taking market share away from brick-and-mortar retailers partly because of its easy-to-navigate customer experience and also its use of advanced technology and machine learning to improve internal operations.  Warby Parker, the eyeglass company that evolved a dated shopping experience, has also disrupted a category that has seen little innovation over the past few decades. The company offers quick delivery, lower costs and on-trend products. Warby Parker is now a household name and worth $1.75 billion— proving the quickly won value of disrupting the retail experience.  Then there’s Brandless, a smaller retailer that secured $50 million in funding last year. Brandless sells more than 300 food, clean beauty, non-toxic cleaning, household and office goods. Like Boxed and Warby Parker, these three innovators show us a lot about what matters in the future of retail.

  • Creating a retail democracy – Amazon did something powerful for retailers and distributors – in a brand and label-obsessed market, it democratized the selling of goods for distributors. No one knows who they last purchased from through Amazon. The retailer has given distributors a user-friendly platform to sell their products, leaving distributors the opportunity to do what they do best: compete on price and availability.
  • Brandless is democratizing retail in a different way – stripping packaged goods down to their core, and focusing on attributes of the products over branding (see terms known as Functionality, Jobs-To-Be-Done, and Main Parameter's of Value). By eliminating traditional branding, the packaging illuminates only what the core customer finds important – organic, non-GMO, vegan, etc. (and you better believe those attributes are rooted in customer data). Brandless is then able to sell most things at a lower price, eliminating what they call the “brand tax” and giving every product a $3 or less price tag.
  • Building relationships directly with consumersWarby Parker gives every customer a boutique shopping experience. By cutting out the middleman, the company is able to lower its prices without royalties and offer customers an intimate shopping experience from their living room. It’s likely a unique enough experience that people share it with their friends, or at least ask their opinion on frames. Similarly, Brandless’ model also allows shoppers to skip the big box retailer or e-commerce grocer. With a condensed value chain, the company can offer lower prices and better market directly to consumers—which they both do via social media. Using analytics and digital marketing, Brandless, for example, is able to target consumers directly using social channels. In fact my team’s research found that 23 percent of Brandless shoppers reach its site via social media. By comparison, social media only accounts for 2-4 percent of other sites’ traffic in the category.
  • Shaping every aspect of your business around your customer – From supply chain to delivery and loyalty, retail businesses have to gain deeper insights on their customers and integrate that thinking into every corner of its operations. Boxed delivered an experience that younger, digitally savvy consumers enjoy. Warby Parker put the customer at the center of every operational and market decision it made.

The State of Retailing Online 2018 says retail Armageddon may not be as bad as initially anticipated

The State of Retailing Online 2018 says retail Armageddon may not be as bad as initially anticipated | Future of Retail | Scoop.it

The annual study conducted by NRF and Forrester examines key digital commerce issues. 

 

Key findings from this year’s report include:

  • Net-net, stores are growing: More surveyed retailers say they will be opening stores in 2018 versus closing them. This outlook contrasts with claims that the physical retail world is being displaced by ecommerce and is therefore doomed.
  • Omnichannel remains a key store investment area: Efforts like in-store pickup and endless-aisle investments have been a recurring theme for digital retailers for years, and continue in 2018 as retailers recognize these initiatives are often multiyear endeavors.
  • Digital retail continues to be the bright spot it’s been for years: Retailers continue to experience success in their ecommerce businesses, which have been buoyed by strong mobile commerce performance and improvements in key metrics like conversion rates.
