    Very good content and research, the need to retain customers is very evident. More and more customers are turning to Apps (Spring, Wish) and social platforms (Instagram, Pinterest) to explore new products, moving away from standard e-commerce. Retailers can catch up with new ways to personalize and inspire users in the same way these platforms do, and thereby locking them into their brands. Aboutyou and Zalando are some of these examples. We from Shopboostr have written some articles about it if you are interested. You can find it here: http://shopboostr.de/en/blog.
