Everywhere you turn, from the morning commute, dinner with family, or date night with the significant other, there’s someone on their phone. According to the Pew Research Center, over 5 billion people are mobile, with more than half having smartphones. On average, people spend more than three hours a day on their phones and check them 58 times a day. It only makes sense for direct-to-consumer (D2C) brands to capitalize on this and utilize mobile…

Data is complicated — sometimes it’s confusing, sometimes it’s a lifesaver. In the world of marketing, it’s a must, and savvy digital marketers are already well-versed in using tools like Google Analytics, Adwords, and other social media analytics to support marketing campaigns. But what about the supply chain?
