Readying for Retail’s Return – On Demand
See the asset Share the page

As lockdowns lift and vaccinations become more widespread, we can all feel the balance shift. Retail is preparing for recovery.

People everywhere are looking forward to their pre-pandemic behaviors, which includes in-store shopping. However, are retailers prepared to meet this predicted increased consumer demand for in-store shopping? Shoppers, while feeling more confident, still prioritize safe and convenient experiences. It’s up to retailers, and their front-line store teams, to deliver on that expectation.

That’s why we sat down for a conversation with retail voices Joice Wirkus, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Big Lots, and Brian Wehrle, Director of Store Experience for Rite Aid. Zipline’s own Head of Content, Emily Lane, and Editor-in-Chief of Total Retail, Joe Keenan led the discussion.

Tune in for a conversation about:

  • what retailers should be thinking about as they prepare their stores for increased traffic levels;
  • how to ensure you’re creating a trustworthy and safe in-store shopping environment;
  • the role of communication in ensuring store teams are remaining compliant with corporate policies on in-store safety protocols;
  • how consistent communication across a retailer’s store network can improve operations, and the impact that has on customer experience; and
  • much more!

What is a UTM and what does this form do?

A UTM is a set of parameters added to a link that tells Google Analytics how that visitor got to our site. And this form helps you make one!

Don't forget, whatever you fill in here will be seen by whoever you share the link with, so be sure not put anything in here that wouldn't necessarily be obvious or worse, could be insulting; ex. don't make the 'campaign' tier-3-prospects.

Please be sure to use all lower case, and dashes-instead-of-spaces.

If there is a gated version (behind a form fill), you will be able to select the gated or ungated (direct to the content) link.

Most common Zipline sources are:

  • linkedin
  • salesloft
  • paid
  • sales
  • qr-code
  • newsletter

The 'Source' is where the traffic is coming from, or the referrer.

Most common Zipline medium are:

  • social
  • email
  • banner
  • sem
  • event

Medium describe 'how' the traffic is coming to the site. So for example, clicks from LinkedIn or Twitter are coming through social media, so we simply call it 'social'. Another example is for email newsletter or direct sales email, the medium would be 'email'.

Current campaigns include:

  • zipline360
  • retail-talent
  • nrf
  • abm
  • holiday-comms

The campaign is an internal description of whichever campaign the link is a part of. Are you promoting an event like NRF? use 'nrf'. Maybe it's part of a new marketing campaign, then use the name of that campaign!

Term is optional, but can be used if there is a keyword associated with where you're sharing the link. This parameter is generally used to identify the search term used to find a paid ad for example.

Content is a good parameter to use when you are sharing multiple links from the same source/medium. If you have the same link in two different LinkedIn posts, you could use 'content' to differentiate based on the thumbnail used, or time of day. For example, 'Content' could be 'wed-afternoon' and 'thurs-morning' to describe when it was posted, or 'platform-thumbnail' or 'man-holding-clipboard' to describe the image associated with the link.
