Retailers are finding out, much to their chagrin, the threat of Amazon and its shadow tool, showrooming. In training consumers to visit retail stores, examine products, compare the price on Amazon and then not buy it from the bricks-and-mortar outlet, the Internet’s largest retailer is threatening business models up and down the retail chain.

In this hour-long, free webinar on Thursday, April 25 at 2 p.m. to 3 p.m., panelists from Starcom, Razorfish and Yankee Group will discuss how retailers and marketers can address the issue of showrooming and retain the loyalty of their customers in-store and on mobile sites and applications.

“Going toe-to-toe with Amazon is a race to the bottom,” said Mickey Alam Khan, editor in chief of Mobile Marketer and Mobile Commerce Daily, New York. “Yet, retailers and marketers must match the agility of the world’s No. 1 online giant, but not on its terms.

“Now is the time to use mobile to turn showrooming on its head – steering away attention from price toward personalized service, pointing out the benefits of buying on-premise and the resultant instant gratification, and further strengthening the bonds of loyalty with the customer and prospect base via addictive apps and sites.”
