Todays’ shoppers expect more: a more individual approach, quicker response, or a more personalized experience. No wonder, brands need to become more creative to maintain the interest with customers adding new elements and features into the buying process. In this context, the online environment stands out against the background of physical stores that face a continued decline in footfall. However, online retailers should think about how to stimulate shoppers to purchase more.

Pop-ups that highlight seasonal openings or limited stock and features that add a sense of novelty and urgency will gain more attention if designed properly. The possibilities are endless with the updated Generation Z theme. Renovate your online shop or marketplace to come into the spotlight!
