 Summary of news published during week 24-2015

  jpa4Sibil220THE MOVE made by the Esprit chain to reward its franchisees when a holder of their fidelity card makes a purchase from the brand’s online store deserves to be copied by all networks of franchised stores. But, at a time when fidelity cards and information technology have become commonplace, it should be possible for brands to reward similarly their wholesale customers. Many brands that could benefit from doing so have chosen not to open an online store because they fear antagonizing their retail partners. Such fears prevent the brand from gaining extra strength and cause it to miss out on many sales opportunities now that so many purchases are being made online with smartphones and tablets. Now that Esprit has shown the way, all brands can benefit from a better exploitation of the online channel.
