The early pandemic pushed a lot of retailers, and the technology companies that serve them, to think about new ways to engage and serve customers across the board.
What we’re seeing now are new ways of shopping (curbside pick-up, local delivery, etc.) at our favorite local retailers, and more streamlined, technology-driven communication. During the pandemic, it became more important than ever for retailers to find new ways to engage creatively and intelligently with customers they were used to seeing regularly face-to-face.
How can retailers best capitalize on this new technology to reach customers?

Historically, new pet owners struggle to find reliable and timely information to care for pets. Roughly half of fish die in the first month of ownership.
Becky has always dreamed of having a beautiful tank of tropical fish. She does her research, saves her money, and invests in a tank and everything necessary to be successful.
When Becky gets home, she fills her tank with water. Shortly after, she realizes she placed the tank in a poor location and can't easily move it. She begins to doubt her ability to make her dream come true.
Over the next month, Becky runs into issues with her new tank, each time getting more discouraged. One by one her fish die off. Becky gives up and sells her equipment out of frustration.
