Context Marketing: IKEA case study

During tough times for all of us consumer behaviours have changed and are going to continue to change. E-Commerce is booming during Covid and it’s crucial to provide your customers a seamless and positive post-purchase experience.

Let me share with you a great example from the furniture giant IKEA.
IKEA learnt there lessons from the past and today the company provides a positive post-purchase experience that drives not only more online sales but also more sales in general for the company.

What did they do?

IKEA bought a startup company called TaskRabbit, where customers can hire an independent handyperson to pick up, deliver and assemble your furnitures using the TaskRabbit app in real-time. 

Isn’t that wonderful?
IKEA found a way to meet consumers at the exact moment when they immediately want to achieve their goal and this is context marketing at it’s best.
Today, successful companies that enjoy consistent growth are those who stay focused on crafting continuously experiences across the entire customer journey. 
Be one of them and remember, as long as the Matterhorn stands, everything is going to be alright.

Algorithms drive the media

Fact is that in today’s modern world, it’s not the marketers who are in control. It’s the algorithms.
Algorithms, also called artificial intelligence are in the driver’s seat and help consumers to try to make sense of making a decision, to take an action or to make a purchase. They act behind your screen, providing you a personalized experience and ensure that you get what you want when you want it.
Which basically means that people are only motivated to make a decision or to take an action if they feel guided along the journey in a personalized way.

Now, how do you make this happen as a marketer?


You need to craft experiences instead of marketing messages. Experiences that are available, permissioned, personal, authentic and purposeful. Mathew Sweezy covers all five elements in detail in his new book called “The context marketing revolution” and I’m going to provide you with more insights from his book in my upcoming videos.


So stay tuned but remember, as long as the Matterhorn stands, everything is going to be alright.


Well, people I’m saying hi from the beautiful Swiss mountains where I spend a lovely holiday. Well, I hope you get a chance to enjoy a lovely holiday soon too.


So stay safe people and I talk to you soon. Bye.
