Ecommerce after the covid impact
Covid transformed the way people shop. It accelerated the switch to ecommerce by 5-7 years in most countries. It was a critical moment in retail, globally. Delivery costs fell with the economies of scale of greater demand and in many countries, the “last mile” challenge was solved. And as people switched to ordering everything from groceries to services based on what they see on screen, they started rethinking the brands they use.
Among platforms, the giants like Amazon, Ebay and Alibaba became even stronger. Retailers with strong relationship marketing and search benefited from being front of mind and gained market share. New loyalties emerged. In groceries there was a shift in what went into the basket, and it’s one that can see established brands toppled and challenger brands become the norm.
Post-covid, the new behaviours continued. What was an exceptional moment became the new norm. For retailers there’s a critical need to be front of mind and not to lose share to the global platforms. For brands there’s a critical opportunity to get picked as people switch to new channels and rethink their buying behaviour. Once you’re on the shopping list, repurchase rates are high – the battle is to get there. And to get there now.

Coca-Cola was looking to strengthen its ecommerce sales across the whole brand portfolio – from the flagship brands to the young new start-up ventures. We translated the ecommerce strategy into approaches that could be deployed in-market, including creating the Perfect Store online and customer segmentation.
