Hero connects online shoppers with real-time help from retail associates in a real-world store. This way, customers can ask questions and receive real-time advice from a real person. If they’re not able to find the answer to their question immediately, Hero will send them links so they can buy it later. And because customers can contact the team through text, email, or WhatsApp, they can stay in touch with each other even if they’re miles apart.
Hero will allow consumers to interact with in-store experts through video shopping, messaging, and real-time chat. The goal is to make online purchases more personal, and to create a more human connection between consumers and brands. In an interview with Forbes, founder and CEO Adam Levene discussed the importance of a more personal connection between consumers and online merchants. Read on to learn more. While the platform is still in its early stages, it is already transforming the way people shop.
With the addition of Hero shopping features, retailers can engage with consumers more effectively. The integration between the two companies aims to engage consumers and help retailers differentiate from Amazon. The pandemic forced e-commerce brands to keep their in-store experiences online. In the end, the combined efforts resulted in a 950 percent increase in virtual shopping sessions and a quadrupling of brands. As online retail continues to increase, it is essential that retailers find ways to differentiate themselves from their competitors.
For example, Hero Interactive conducted a survey among consumers. They found that consumers wanted short, relevant videos, more product experts, and authentic images. The survey also revealed that 64% of respondents disapproved of the online shopping experience. The company isn’t the only one experimenting with this technology. In a recent video, Adam Levene shares his thoughts on what the future of the online shopping experience looks like and how it can improve it.
