Our Story

Why We're the Best at What We Do

 
Retail marketing is about developing a direct relationship with the consumer and the online experience is most powerful when it tells your brand story, is intuitive and tailored 1:1 to the individual. A growing issue among merchants is that the high growth digital consumers – the 18 to 35-year-olds – increasingly tune out your traditional forms of advertising and they are not consumers of print. Wishabi helps you reinvent your digital circular strategy to engaged shoppers online and reach the next generation of consumers.
The digital circular is a representation of your storefront, telling your brand story and tactically driving promotions and sales. Until now, the problem with digital circulars is that they haven’t worked well. Simply digitizing print into a “page flip” experience leaves consumers unimpressed and unmotivated to shop. That’s why Wishabi has reinvented the digital circular with a new approach to production, analytics and distribution.
