E-commerce in South Africa - Lessons from China

The year 2014 saw a major shift in consumer behavior and spending habits, and this was reflected in the launch of the biggest IPO yet, that of the Alibaba Group, raising $25bn. Founded by Peng Lei and Jack Ma and led by Jonathan Lu, Alibaba has been a household name in China for years, selling everything from clothing to pet food, but demand for instant gratification, quick delivery and transactional enablement meant that a critical mass would be reached, and today China is the world's largest e-commerce market, and it's only going to get bigger.

Chins up for real-world to digital engagement - So Interactive
Chins up for real-world to digital engagement

The real-world to digital engagement loop is absolutely pivotal to campaign success in the food and beverage industry. Great apps are only as great as the in-store engagement they offer, and vice-versa; the in-store experience should drive back to a digital touch point, offering longevity to the overall brand experience. That is why So Interactive went to work getting chins up, both digitally and in the real world, for Ocean Basket and the beachhouse wine's new Greek madness campaign.

Is our online shopping on the ball?

In South Africa, first world and third world often blend into each other without anyone noticing, especially in the form of technology. One catches a first-world Gautrain or communicates with the rest of the globe via the very latest smartphone or iPad, yet we have potholes on our roads that could engulf a small car and power cuts that occur almost on a weekly basis. So technology is certainly our flag-bearer, but how has this benefited the consumer?
