One hundred retail brands were selected for inclusion in the study based on a number of criteria, including brand prominence, retailer type, and known leadership in customer experience innovation and personalization. Selected retailers include those with a global presence and those with specific presence in the United States and/or United Kingdom. Sailthru’s team of personalization experts developed a list of criteria on which to measure the selected retailers against. The selected criteria included a variety of brand-side and consumer-side activities either in digital channels or using digital data that would be visible to customers shopping with the brand either online or in-store. The criteria list was broken into four sections or channels: Site, Email, Mobile, and Other. An internal team at Sailthru was assigned to review each retailer in a process called “experiencing the brand,” in which the team would go through the retailer’s site, app, and email experiences as if they were a new customer, keeping track of the efficiency of the customer experience and how well their experience was personalized. Brands that made it to the top 5 are: Sephora, JustFab, Walmart, Net-a-Porter, and eBay, which tied with Nordstrom and REI. You can view the complete list here.
