In a previous blog post, we defined omni-channel marketing as a strategy and multi-channel marketing as a tactic. Omni-channel must be a top-down initiative across your entire organization, so you need buy-in from leadership.

Here, I’d like to provide you some statistics to help you build a business case for an omni-channel strategy at your organization.

It takes more than a single interaction to engage a customer – in fact, it takes several:

  • Campaigns integrating 4 or more digital channels will outperform single- or dual-channel campaigns by 300%. (Gartner Research)
  • The three most common lead generation strategies are email marketing, event marketing, and content marketing (DM News)
  • Users often take dozens, if not hundreds, of digital touchpoints on their journey (Think With Google)
  • Only 48% of respondents craft content based on specific stages of their buyer’s journey (Content Marketing Institute)
  • 70% of marketers lack a consistent or integrated content strategy (Altimeter, via Venture Harbor)
  • Respondents with 7+ marketing channels in their mix are 26% more likely to say it’s producing good or very good results (PFL)

Many organizations want to conduct omni-channel campaigns, but have trouble executing. Did you know that per Invesp, more marketers have adopted multi-channel marketing strategies to stay on top of market tends than because of the ROI of their campaigns?

Those who are successfully implementing omni-channel see results and have a competitive advantage:

  • 46% of organizations currently deliver poor customer experiences that end up in cart abandonment. (Multichannel Digital Marketing Report)
  • Only 14% of organizations say they are currently running coordinated marketing campaigns across all channels. (CMO by Adobe)
  • 51% of marketers can’t react to new channels, devices, trends or competitors using their current tech. (Multichannel Digital Marketing Report)
  • 55% of companies have no cross-channel strategy in place (The CMO Club)
  • 64% of marketers cite lack of resources and investment as their top barrier to omni-channel marketing (The CMO Club).
  • More than half of organizations say that “non-integrated tech platforms” are the single biggest barrier to running more integrated marketing activities. (CMO by Adobe, Three Issues Hindering Progress In Multichannel Marketing)

  • 98% of Americans switch between devices in the same day. (Google Research)
