Recipe 15 - Interactive Shopping Guide

In this post, we will provide step by step guide to implement a strategy guide your customers interactively through their shopping experience. This post assumes that you have already installed "Upvert app" on your shopify shop.

Tips for successful campaign

We often think that we already know what customers want. But it might be tricky craft right experience on home page or collection page where different customers might be looking for different things. In such cases, asking explicitly what customers are looking for and directing them to right sections of your shop might be good experience. This will avoid customers getting lost and leaving your site. This will significantly reduce bounce rate on these pages keeping customers on the shop increasing overall conversion rate.

  1. Craft right questions: Craft targeted questions/options based on their current shopping context. For ex., when customers are "Smart Watch Collection" you can ask questions like what are the things they look for ideal smart watch and recommend right products accordingly.
  2. Use combination of collections/products: Feel free to mix products/collections to deliver the right experience according to context. For ex., for one option you can direct them to collections where as for other one direct them to specific product.

To explain the campaign setup, we will use an example shop that is selling smart watches(which has two products - Apple Watch and Fossil Hybrid Watch) and Smart TV Keyboard. We will show how you can set up a campaign to guide customer right product/collection based on what customer is looking for.
