  • San Francisco, Nov. 16, 2021– The once-blinding shine of Black Friday is dimming for U.S. consumers as nearly one-third will not shop at all on that day. Of those planning to shop Black Friday, most intend to shop only online according to Sitecore’s Holiday Shopping Trends 2021 Report. This could be because 20% no longer believe the event offers good deals and the fact that the majority (71%) will have already started buying Christmas gifts by Black Friday. Only 11% said they will kick-off their holiday shopping during the event.

    “The role that Black Friday plays in the lead up to Christmas in the U.S. is waning. With brands fighting harder than ever to differentiate their offers, there must now be a bigger focus on providing online, personalized experiences that are unique to a brand, rather than just flash sales,” said Paige O’Neill, Sitecore CMO. “We know customer expectations have never been higher, and while there is still a place for deals, brands should focus on earning loyalty through an intimate understanding of buyer motivations. Personalized content, offers, and experiences will help create the relationships that are lasting and will increase sales.”

    Consumers don’t want to face the crowds or over-consume

    With 18 months of social distancing and rising infection numbers, it is no surprise that U.S. consumers cite avoiding crowds (58% of respondents) as one of the top three reasons to not shop on Black Friday. Only 17% plan to shop in person on Black Friday at national stores and just 10% plan to shop in person at local businesses.

    The fact that the event is now associated with over-consumption (30%) and is becoming outdated could also be hampering interest.

    Finally, shoppers have different priorities for Christmas this year. After suffering through the pandemic without much time with loved ones, many are ready to make up for lost time this holiday season. Nearly three-fourths (71%) say they would prefer experience-based gifts over “more stuff” and 63% want the gifts they do buy to mean something or have a story behind them, which may nudge them more toward local retailers versus “one-stop shops.”

    Online brands can still triumph on Black Friday

    The majority of those choosing to shop Black Friday this year will be online (43%), which offers brands an opportunity to meet customer expectations for both Black Friday-worthy deals and exceptional customer experiences.

    Consumers believe that deals offered on Black Friday are often no better than sales offered throughout the year. However, those choosing to shop on Black Friday will still be on the hunt for discounts and deals. When online shopping this holiday season, early discounts and deals were cited as the most important buying factor for 67% of survey respondents. The next most important was exclusive pre-sale deals for loyal customers, valued by nearly half of consumers (43%). These shoppers believe their loyalty means not having to wait in line for a 6 a.m. Black Friday deal; they feel their “spot” is saved because of their dedication to certain retailers.

    Personalization is key to true brand success, with the right product offered at the right time. Nearly one-third (30%) want personalized suggestions from their favorite brands this holiday season.

    Ethical gift giving is top of consumers’ minds

    Amazon may still rule the shopping scene, but U.S. consumers are more focused on shopping local and from independent retailers. Sixty percent of those surveyed said they’ll avoid big-box stores in deference to independent retailers, and slightly more (63%) are willing to pay more for locally made gifts.

    Young shoppers are especially interested in retailers that offer more Black- and minority-owner products and services (76%). Overall, two-thirds of all U.S. consumers want such products but only 28% see Black- and minority-owner products and services while shopping.

    Earlier this year Sitecore published insights relating to how this Christmas is make-or-break for brands and their showrooms, as well as how much U.S. consumers are looking forward to the holiday season. The full data is available in the Holiday Shopping Trends 2021 Report.

    About Sitecore’s Holiday Shopping Trends 2021 Report

    Sitecore commissioned Advanis to conduct a survey among consumers and digital marketers, reflecting the attitudes and priorities for this year’s Christmas season. The study polled 1,000 U.S. consumers and 400 U.S. marketers.

  • San Francisco, Oct. 5, 2021– Today, Sitecore®, the global leader in digital experience platform software, announces Sitecore Experience Manager Cloud – the first entirely cloud-native CMS offering the design flexibility, integration-friendliness, and authoring experience for business users to create and deliver personalized digital experiences. With this new addition to the Sitecore Digital Experience Platform (DXP), Sitecore offers the first SaaS offering of its kind that reimagines how content, experience orchestration, commerce and analytics support modern enterprises. The company also announces a range of new product updates that integrate recent acquisitions, and the launch of a subscription-based learning resource.

    The launch comes at a crucial time for brands looking to deepen customer engagement, maintain digital customers gained during the pandemic and elevate their digital presence. The new products and services, announced at Sitecore Symposium, solve the industry-wide challenge of marketing during ever-evolving consumer digital behaviors.

    Sitecore’s new SaaS DXP, which is available for customers from today in most regions globally, is built on a composable architecture, so end users can buy best-of-breed products or an integrated platform that scales to support high volume content, visitor, and data processing needs. The composable approach enables brands to capitalize on Sitecore’s 1,200+ strong partner ecosystem, extensive developer network, and deep-rooted expertise in helping enterprise businesses manage and enhance the customer experience across all industries and regions.

    This new direction for Sitecore confirms its ambitious growth plans announced earlier this year when the company secured a $1.2 billion investment – the largest-ever capital investment in the martech space, which spurred the acquisitions of BoxeverFour51Moosend and Reflektion.

    For the first time, brands can take a modular approach to achieving their digital experience goals as Sitecore has integrated its portfolio via a composable architecture in the cloud. Customers can now configure and connect products through APIs as needed to gain faster time to value and have the ability to flex their creativity to create differentiation in the market faster than the competition. With microservices-based, cloud-native technology, the option to scale up or down, and quickly change content across different channels is possible.

    Steve Tzikakis, Sitecore CEO said: “Today’s announcement confirms our ambition to disrupt the market and help brands stay ahead with cutting-edge technology. Our recent acquisitions have been fundamental to building the most advanced composable platform available today, something we see as the future of DXP. Customer expectations are everchanging, so it is essential brands are empowered to work in real-time, adapting experiences to keep up with the demand. We’re supporting them with the technology to make this possible. By bringing our portfolio together in the cloud, brands can achieve this and enjoy a truly integrated, flexible and scalable platform – delivering personalized experiences for their customers, whatever the channel.”

    Below you can find a list of updates to Sitecore’s offering:

    Sitecore Discover

    Following the acquisition of Reflektion in September, Sitecore Discover is the only solution on the market that integrates search with marketing and commerce capabilities.

    With 93% of all online experiences starting with search, this is an essential update empowering brands to offer end-to-end, personalized experiences using AI-powered technology that understands and predicts customer patterns, context, and needs.

    Sitecore Personalize

    Sitecore today announces its new SaaS Personalization Engine powered by technology from the company’s Boxever acquisition. Sitecore Personalize allows brands to experiment and be agile to customers’ evolving digital behaviors. The AI-based technology empowers digital leaders to deliver next-level, real-time experiences, optimize their conversion funnels, and engage customers with relevant content and offers.

    Sitecore Health Cloud

    Sitecore Health Cloud is an offering of Sitecore Experience Platform in Microsoft Azure that caters to the specific intricacies of the U.S. healthcare market. The technology, which is scheduled to be HIPAA ready in Spring 2022, will empower providers to offer engaging and personalized patient experiences using data, delivering great healthcare services in a secure and compliant manner.

    Sitecore Learning

    Sitecore also announces three new tiered learning subscriptions – Essentials, Professionals, and Advanced – to help more professionals across the industry become Sitecore certified. Created to meet the demand for education that matches the speed of Sitecore’s DXP updates and additions, the resource will enable users to learn about products from online courses and instructor-led tutorials. They will also allow professionals to learn about other Sitecore products, opening up possibilities to expand and enhance their capabilities, and address the challenge of siloed teams.

  • Sitecore has a long-tenured relationship with Microsoft spanning two decades. Together, we’ve helped customers navigate the very early days of creating an initial web presence through to the current era of digital maturity, enabling organizations to deliver highly personalized experiences at scale. Today, we can reveal some exciting developments that highlight our successful collaboration and further extend our relationship, cementing our leadership in enabling customers to tap into the power of data and content to power digital experiences.

    We are thrilled to be recognized as Microsoft’s Global Retail and Consumer Goods Partner of the Year. Winning this award reflects the innovation and excellence we’ve delivered for customers utilizing Microsoft’s technology. Sitecore is one of over 4,400 partners across more than 100 countries that Microsoft works with, so this commendation as the premier partner in the retail sector is a significant achievement.

    With retail success increasingly dependent on digital channels, delivering a personalized omnichannel experience is critical to surviving the retail apocalypse. As a result, many brands including L’OréalPet Supplies Plus, and Subway have turned to Sitecore to harness insights across the customer journey to help drive up conversion rates and ensure a connected, engaging digital experience. Our shared vision with Microsoft is to enable retailers to navigate a digital-first world where the customer journey is multi-channel and complex and delivering personalized content at scale is vital.

    This award is further recognition of how we’re helping retail customers thrive by addressing their critical digital transformation challenges. We will continue to work with Microsoft to keep pushing the boundaries of innovation in pursuit of delivering compelling and profitable digital experiences.

    Expanding our relationship

    In addition to the award, Sitecore today announces an extension to our long-standing collaboration by integrating with Microsoft Dynamics 365. This integration will help customers unlock the full power of their data and content to revolutionize the customer experience.

    Sitecore has worked with Microsoft hosting our SaaS and PaaS offerings in the Azure cloud. Now, our rich content and personalized experience capabilities will be part of the Microsoft Dynamics 365 ecosystem. This integration will enable us to work with customers to solve more of the strategic challenges they face as they digitally transform and look to capitalize on the online experience.

    The integration of Dynamics 365 frictionless commerce solutions with Sitecore's world-class content tools brings together two trusted platforms built on the Microsoft cloud. The integration will provide users with one interface making it easier and quicker to manage content delivery into personalized commerce and digital properties.

    The сustomer advantage

    • Microsoft Dynamics 365 customers will soon have access to Sitecore’s innovative content and experience tools as they digitally transform. In turn, Sitecore customers will have an expanded range of data and commerce tools from Microsoft.
    • Rather than undertaking a complex and often time-consuming integration, customers will be able to connect Microsoft Dynamics 365 Commerce and the Sitecore Content Hub making it easy to deliver a personalized experience. This saves time and will drive up conversion rates.
    • The integration will allow customers to further unlock the insights from their data into experiences. The auto-personalization already in Sitecore AI ensures customers rely on predictive insights rather than guesswork to automate the operation and production of content. Sitecore’s integration with Dynamics 365 increases efficiency enabling users to connect with a broader audience, enhancing the overall customer experience.

    Stronger together

    As competition continues to intensify, the ability to deliver personalization at scale is the key to winning and retaining customers in a digital-first world.
