Progressive Personalization in Apparel & Accessories

Customer experience in Apparel & Accessories differs from any other retail segment. In this segment, the key role in the purchase decision is given to factors that may be insignificant in other product categories. For instance, size – the customer is shopping for products of a particular size. Individual brand preferences – the customer first tries to find an option within their favorite brands, before moving to any other. Gender – 99% of the time a woman will shop for products for women.

A quick comparison with any other category, for example, smartphones: an iPhone 7 will fit well in both women’s and men’s hands, regardless of their height or body type. An entirely different set of factors influences the purchase decision in this category.

What does this mean for a retail Apparel & Accessories company? Product personalization must rely on the key parameters relevant to each customer and prospect; the size (clothing and shoe), gender, brand preferences. Very often, online retail companies make a blunt mistake ignoring these key parameters in their personalization.

In this special post, we analyzed different retail Apparel & Accessories companies’ experience. You will understand their mistakes from our visual examples. Learn why Big Data-based personalization fails to deliver any tangible results, whereas a Progressive Personalization-driven approach leads to a solid rise in conversion, ARPU, and AOV.
