20% increase in website conversion, 15% decrease of advertising spend

The problem

High advertising spend and a risk of over stock was the unsatisfactory result of not making the right offers to visitors of the webshop

Inefficiency in advertising spending and website conversion were hurting the bottom line of a fashion retailer. Customers of the client were getting lost browsing through products, not able to find what they liked. This put more pressure on advertising spend to make sure enough customers were coming the site and causing a risk of over stock. 

The solution

A SaaS solution that processes behavioral website data and helps the eCommerce company to rise conversion by creating a unique experience for the visitor

A Custom Data Platform for Travel and Fashion ecommerce companies was implemented to capture all behavioral website data and build profiles. After implementing the platform, user behavior was processed to create:

  • Automated email campaigns for abandoned website visits and abandoned carts
  • Product recommendation units on homepage and product pages
  • Persuasion tactics based on user statistics‚ e.g. ‘Item bought 10 times today‘ or ‘123 people are viewing this product‘
  • Purchase follow-up emails with recommendations to promote cross selling.

Before

Before the project there were a lot of manual processes involved to get to a suboptimal result. This caused a lack of speed in implementation of marketing use cases and resulted in suboptimal performance of the marketing team. 

Afterwards

After the project core processes have been automated, helping the business achieve optimal conversion on the website. On top of this, customer data can now be used from a single source to turn all marketing campaigns into better converting personalized experiences.
