What’s hyperlocal ecommerce?

Inspirational Friday quote: Change is scary—but necessary. You may not be able to ride on every new ecommerce wave, but you should at least catch those that match your business’ wavelength.

To do that, you must first stay on top of updates and events happening in the online marketplace. But don’t worry, ‘coz we got you.

ECOMMERCE NEWS

Have you heard of hyperlocal ecommerce?

A recent article from TechBuillion brings this new not-so-new ecommerce trend into the spotlight, highlighting how it uses a “simple but powerful” approach to attract customers. Here’s a scoop on why hyperlocal ecommerce is trending:

⚡ Hyperlocal = hypergrowth

Hyperlocal ecommerce is a strategy that targets customers in small, well-defined areas like streets, neighborhoods, cities, etc.

The global hyperlocal services market size has achieved a $2.6 billion milestone in 2023 and is expected to reach $7 billion by 2032.

🧨 But what’s driving this explosive growth?

To understand, let’s look at 4 strengths boasted by 2 platforms leveraging hyperlocal services: GoPuff and Rappi:

  • Speed and convenience. Smaller coverage means faster fulfillment. Beyond speed, hyperlocal ecommerce delivers what buyers need, when they need it.
  • Unique local offerings. Focusing on an area makes it easier to curate your product catalog. If you’re near a school, target students’ needs. And don’t forget to tailor your inventory based on local tastes and/or partner with beloved local brands.
  • Empowering small businesses. Speaking of local brands, hyperlocal ecommerce is a win-win, especially for small ones. Local businesses get a new digital platform and delivery infrastructure, and online markets get a unique assortment of local specialties.
  • Genuine community engagement. By partnering, featuring, and catering to local customers, you build bonds and connections faceless corporations can only imagine. 🫂

Can Amazon sellers go hyperlocal?

Definitely!

If you sell on Amazon, you can participate in the hyperlocal market by leveraging FBA. FBA warehouses essentially make your items ‘local’ by offering one-day or two-day delivery for products or same-day delivery for groceries.

📌 The reason why hyperlocal ecommerce is trending isn’t because it’s a winning strategy, but because it builds strong brand equity. So, maybe it’s time to shift your business goal from merely driving profits to becoming a valued part of a community.

How ad metrics have changed over time

How ad metrics have changed over time

In the past, ad metrics were all about impact, click-through rates, and app installs. But according to AdExchanger, they have evolved to quantify business growth through tangible results like sales. 💰

AdExchanger also listed the reasons for these changes, which mainly include:

  • Amazon’s influence. To guide advertising in finding the right advertising formula for maximum profitability, Amazon introduced several ad metrics such as:
  • Impact of organic sales. Amazon also introduced the total ROAS (TROAS), which incorporates organic sales alongside ad-attributed sales.
  • Expansion to search and social platforms. Albeit not marketplaces, Google and Meta have embraced advertising and adopted ecommerce metrics.

💡 Key takeaway

Change is indeed the only permanent thing in the world. With the focus of online advertising shifting to include physical store foot traffic and customer relationship management, you must also look into the direction of improving these aspects for your business.
