We’re humbled to welcome back to the show, Scott Buelter, CEO of Ascent360 - a data-driven marketing platform that has grown tremendously in the past couple of years as a result of the pandemic directing more and more purchases online. We discuss the newcomers to the outdoor marketplace (hint: they’re here to stay!) and how you can create loyalty in the face of supply shortages and price increases.
In this episode, you’ll also learn how utilizing a tailored marketing strategy - using segmentation and behavioral data - can create personalized connections, leading to more faithful customers. Scott also gives advice on what customers small to medium-sized businesses should focus on, amid an increase in demand from online customers.
Today, customers are more willing to give businesses their information to build personalized experiences with brands. We’re excited for the boom that the pandemic has created in the outdoor industry and the shift to a more consumer-centric approach as the outdoor goods industry is reinvesting that profit back into their businesses.
