A brand with an omnichannel strategy will ensure that no matter where the customer journey begins—a physical store, mobile app or different channel—and no matter where it ends, the individual will have a seamless, consistent experience all the way through.

Brightspot exists to support marketers in bringing these experiences to life—all in an easier, faster and smarter way. Read on to discover 10 ways Brightspot empowers and improves the lives of marketing and communications teams.

API-first to meet customers where they're at

With Brightspot, you have the option to go headless, use a head or do both. Brightspot’s headless or decoupled CMS options make it possible to push content to any device, no matter if shoppers are online, in an app, or using another channel such as wearable tech. A headless CMS can also help teams distribute content across channels while collecting customer data from those touchpoints that feed into the 360-degree customer view.

There's been a lot of buzz lately around headless commerce. But what is headless commerce, and why is everyone talking about it?

Integration-readiness that connects the martech stack

Brightspot provides easy integration and pre-built connectors with other parts of the marketing ecosystem. These integration tools include marketing automation software, paywall providers and advertising networks. For instance, one integration might enhance the omnichannel experience by offering identity protection to a customer accessing paywalled content. Another could display an eCommerce link for a customer to make a purchase based on profile preferences or browsing history. 

Every business needs a complete view of the customer journey in order to deliver content that will have the most impact for different audiences. This all starts with an integrated tech stack and an integration-ready CMS at its heart.

Modular content for efficiency plus engagement

Brightspot's modular content approach lets marketers present variations of content to different audience segments and across multiple devices and screens to help speed up the marketing team's work as well as increasing effectiveness with customers.

This in-depth webinar will explain what modular content is, how it can improve content operations and deliver content personalization, and highlight use cases from the world’s largest brands.

Personalization drives results

Brightspot makes personalization easy. Having the right data points and analytical tools is key to personalized, omnichannel marketing. Brightspot is integration- and migration-ready, taking in companies’ proprietary data sources, digital experience platforms, enterprise applications and marketing tech software to easily analyze and use data.

Omnichannel marketing is a practice that aligns content delivery across marketing channels—both online and offline—to provide a seamless, consistent experience. Here's what marketers need to know to get it right.

Multisite capabilities empower global marketing reach

Brightspot is naturally multisite and multi-national, which plays a big role in brand consistency for marketers. For global organizations that need content distributed on sites around the world in their native languages, they can publish more efficiently and realize cost savings when consolidating multiple publishing tools onto a single CMS.

Companies today are becoming increasingly borderless, meaning it's more common to need multiple sites in multiple languages to support their business. A modern CMS will ensure seamless and consistent multisite management no matter the geography, number of sites or source of original content assets.

Own your data with audience insights

Marketers may not have access to the same data they had before via third-party cookies—somewhat limiting their ability to run successful campaigns—but there are alternative strategies, such as first-party data, that enable marketers to continue to drive results. Brightspot is API-first to make integrations easy, and certain integrations can help marketers navigate changes to third-party cookies.

Imagine this: An unapproved version of your company logo is accidentally emailed to one of your partners, who unknowingly includes it in a digital and print advertisement campaign. The resulting mess costs your company thousands in reprinting fees, and the incorrect logo is propagated across the internet.

For example, the platform offers a variety of built-in preview views that include three desktop sizes and device preview for tablet and mobile across landscape and portrait.
