The Business Challenge  

We all know how important it is to create a seamless connection between various channels and use digital to efficiently drive sales across the board.  

While this all sounds good it can be quite a challenge to measure how our digital marketing investments translated to in-store activity and sales 

Some of the business challenges we were addressing were   

  • The influence of Digital marketing efforts on store purchases 
  • Influence of Digital marketing efforts on Store or Offline events 
  • What marketing channel mix is most effective?  
  • What Digital campaigns are driving store sales 
  • Visualize Customer journey from digital to Store 
  • Create Omnichannel marketing efforts for customers shopping across channels.  

Solution, Architecture & Integration   

To help visualize, report, and create omni channel marketing efforts we took the following steps. 


  • Identify various touch points across digital and Store 
    • Leveraging actionable analytics & experience data   
    • Create Audiences to address opportunities  
  • Identity management & Consolidation 
    • Identities form the foundation of AEP profile and reporting; we ensured that this is consolidated and consistent across touchpoints 
    • Consolidate identities and create a identity management framework 
  • Campaign Tracking Conventions  
    • Review, document effective ways to track campaign performance across digital and store  
    • Create End to end campaign tracking conventions 
  • Report, Analyze & Iterate 
    • Use Adobe Customer journey analytics to report, visualize and communicate performance for business teams
