    How Beauty Brands Manage Item Set Up Across the Digital Shelf

    When shoppers buy beauty products online, they want detailed ingredient information and previous in-store experience with the product. Beauty brands compete to create the most compelling online experiences — and the digital shelf is continually evolving.

    Brands must have the ability to syndicate across each digital shelf endpoint — while ensuring a consistent brand experience — to deliver the optimal digital experiences for shoppers.

    Syndication: The Right Content at the Right Time

    At its simplest, syndication is about sending the right content to the right place.

    Syndication can’t begin or end with mere data delivery to grow product sales. For products to be discovered and bought, content must go live and be impactful.

    Some retailers and distributors use a variety of methods to receive product content:

    Each retailer also has a set of compliance processes and requirements before a product goes live.

    4 Syndication Best Practices for Item Set Up

    1. Channel-Specific Content Optimization

    Optimize product content for each audience and channel. By modeling and managing channel-specific versions of your product content, brands can adjust data for one channel — or across the core data set — depending on needs.

    2. Oversight-Dependent Team Access

    Empower teams with access — but build in oversight. Your information technology (IT), master data management (MDM), ecommerce, marketing, and sales teams each need access to up-to-date product content. This access empowers them to drive products to market and win sales fast.

    Ensure brand consistency across all digital touchpoints by leveraging security and auditing capabilities layered on top of data.

    By applying attribute-level checks against internal schemas, brands can ensure compliance before publishing to each channel.

    3. Create Dynamic Experiences

    Syndicate all rich content, including videos, enhanced content, product tours, and 360-degree product image spins, from one unified platform. 

    Brands can tell the best product stories across all touchpoints. How? By leveraging their complete collection of product data and turning that data into dynamic experiences where rich media is available.

    4. Continuously Improve Product Experiences

    Analyze product detail pages, incorporate channel-specific action items directly into your product content, and rapidly publish the updates. These steps will help drive sales and give your brand the ability to stay ahead of the competition.
