In this insightful book, Tim and his co-author Sarah Jarvis make a compelling case for the power of culture, communications and connection, both online and offline, as tools that drive success, with clear and practical examples that make this book essential reading for every ambitious retailer in today's digital world.

Tim Mason is a pioneer in the world of enterprise customer engagement – a genuine icon. And while you have to credit him for the incomparable work he has done for the brands he’s worked on over the years and how he has advanced the thinking and awareness of the critical human factors that underpin this industry, that’s not why you should read this book. Read this book because Tim provides retailers with strategies and tactics that are not only practical but are actionable right now and which (unlike so many other current books in this genre) actually help to move the needle!

“The whole idea of Omnichannel has never sat right with me. Pushed by tech vendors and consultants, the concept of Omnichannel has contorted into a confusing buzzword that creates unrealistic expectations for marketing leaders. Yet, the second edition of Omnichannel Retail: How to build winning stores in a digital world gives us a fresh, and perhaps better approach to the concept. Omnichannel doesn't mean that we should abandon the principles that built great retail brands for the 100s of years before the internet came along. Indeed, we should embrace a deep understanding of who our customer is and harness technology, data, and content to define what works for each customer in the moments that matter. This revised edition could not come at a better time for retail leaders as brands have to respond to out-of-control cost of living challenges, a post-Covid-19 world, and increased digital expectations from consumers. In Omnichannel Retail, Tim Mason and Sarah Jarvis have delivered a vision for what this confounding word should represent that I can finally get behind.”
This book brings back to the conscious the real value of knowing your customers and the insights to realise how powerful your customers are to the growth of your business. If you believe customers can be the spokes in your wheel of fortune, then read this book (especially the chapters on loyalty!).
Omnichannel Retail brings to life Tim Mason’s unrivalled sense of customers the world over and how their lives are changing. It draws out his life-long retail experiences and his instinct for growth, and is a must-read for all thoughtful and sustainable retailers.
