What should FMCG brands do with their websites?

The last 12 months has seen a sea change in the user experience strategy of many grocery brands, placing social media, and particularly Facebook, at the heart of their digital play.

At first look this seems sensible, Facebook offers an opportunity for richer forms of interaction than either digital advertising or a brand’s own website have historically delivered. And the platform is free to use. And it yields lots of new data points that weren’t available before.

But in the long term Facebook can’t be where brands ‘live’ online, and making Facebook the centre of gravity for FMCG brands opens up a number of risks for brand owners. We need to put our thinking caps on and consider a new future for brand websites in the marketing mix.
