Conversion has never been more top-of-mind for retailers. With many consumers stuck at home because of the coronavirus pandemic, they are turning online to shop.
But many consumers are just browsing—not purchasing. Which means, online retailers need to present products that are compelling to those shoppers. Retailers need to guide shoppers to the right product and fast. If a shopper is already on a retailer’s site, she is interested in that brand and its products. She will abandon her web session if she is unable to find the right product.
In order to convert those online shoppers and searchers into customers, online retailers need to understand what shoppers are looking for and provide them with the best-fitting product based on their individual needs. This can be especially challenging for retailers with large product catalogues or ones with only slight variations in products. How a retailer goes about matching products and shoppers, however, varies. Some solutions retailers use include an easy product comparison feature, allowing shoppers to search using a picture, conversational search, or live chat.
