Products & Marketing AppsMarketing apps that advertise new products and allow customers to buy products generally aren't popular as they don't offer much functionality. Integration of mobile apps with products makes them more attractive. If an app allows you to remotely control a product or view interesting statistics, it has a better chance to engage customers.

Retail & Digital RemarketingA customer visits a retail location and tries on a pair of shoes but doesn't buy them. Afterwards, they receive ads for the same shoes through digital channels such as an installed app.
Mass Media & Person-to-PersonRetail sales representatives are shown TV commercials and other promotional communications as part of weekly staff meetings. The message behind promotional campaigns are shared with staff so that they can incorporate it into their communications with customers.
Pricing & ChannelsUnified pricing strategies across channels that are optimized together. For example, a pair of shoes might be cheaper through an ecommerce channel but they are available in stores several weeks earlier. This can act as a type of price discrimination whereby fans of a brand pay more if they want to be first to own your new products.
