RETAIL FOR THE BIKE TRADE
Selling bikes is all about specialist retailers. However, customer requirements are changing. Exclusive service is now more important than ever. Whether in the workshop, or on the sales floor – differentiating yourself from the competition is the name of the game. Successful retailers keep a keen eye on the road ahead – and keep up with the latest developments. Long-term strategies and tools are the key to ongoing, sustainable growth.
MARKETING FOR TRADE & INDUSTRY
Well-structured websites are vital. They are the new shop windows. However, customers now expect more. Sales and support by live video and chat proved successful during the Corona lockdown. Yet increasing digitalisation is just one part of the equation. Local service and clear availability are also important factors. Thanks to new marketing tools, manufacturers and retailers can now get to know their customers better and do more to meet their online and off-line expectations and requirements.
TRENDS & CHANGE
From 3D-printed bike frames to four-wheel e-bikes – we have seen a number of exciting technological developments in recent times. Yet, bike development is still in its infancy. The effects of the Corona pandemic have had a major impact on mobility – bicycles are now an even more important link in the mobility chain – in addition to the sporting role they play. Now is the time to set the agenda for the future – including when it comes to sustainability.
DIGITAL & TECHNOLOGY
Digitale trends for the industry
Is owning your own bike still relevant? Leasing, sharing and other subscription services are strongly increasing in demand and redefining the bike market. Inter-modular transport concepts are opening up new possibilities. Linking micromobility with the smart phone is an important component. Digital options make users more independent. The automotive industry is already well on the way in this respect – but how do you benefit from all this as a company in your day-to-day business?
