The line between retailers and brands will continue to blur for consumers, making close collaboration essential to meet the needs of modern shoppers.

There are many examples of successful brand and retailer collaborations, including a partnership in 2020 between global brand giant Levi’s and U.S. retailer Target that helped both groups leverage the impressive (and loyal) customer base each organization offers.

These partnerships can help organizations share resources, offer unique customer insights, and expand brand discovery. Together, organizations can overcome some of the biggest commerce challenges facing retailers and brands today.

Central to these partnerships are shopping experiences. As customers move from discovery to evaluation to delivery on their shopping journeys, the experience must be engaging, consistent, and clear.

Winning Shopping Experiences Are Crucial

For retailers and brands worldwide, product information and images are crucial to supporting these journeys. Think with Google reports that 85% of global shoppers list these elements as “important” for making buying decisions — which highlights how collaborating to build engaging shopping experiences can mutually benefit retailers and brands alike.
