THE PSYCHOLOGY OF SITE SEARCH

July 15, 2012

THE PSYCHOLOGY OF SITE SEARCH

I write this as somebody who has been involved in e-commerce and specifically site search for a number of years now, but my background was in retail on the front line. I have sat on the fitting stool, stood behind the cash register, done meet and greet at the door, been an overworked assistant store manager then run operations like Best Buy and left the industry as a field based regional executive. So I can offer a personal relevant perspective to those of you who are exploring the online channel.

Your online store may have been up and running for a decent period of time now and yes you are generating sales. Let’s face it you have paid enough to designers, integrators and digital agencies so you know it looks the part. You may also have paid out to those agencies offering to get you traffic, you have been optimized, modified, tagged and analyzed. To quote the Field Of Dreams “if you build it – they will come”, so, you have built it, they have come and yet they are not spending money, they are not converting into paying customers in the same way that somebody who made the effort to visit your bricks and mortar store is.

 

The reason for this is simple, either they found what they wanted but had an objection to buying it, (be it product, service or price ) OR they couldn’t find what they were looking for or even see something they wanted that was on your stock file. And that is OUR problem because that’s what we do. We can serve the customer with search results that are relevant to their enquiry and we can show them additional items that complement the item they are buying to increase your average order size. We can also merchandize your store so that your long tail is being constantly displayed; your best margin products get prominence (because we care for your bottom line) and requests for products your shop doesn’t carry are met with a suitable alternative. To round this off and keep it very simple – we have the best set of tools to enable you to reach record conversion and customer satisfaction numbers.

To put this in a real world perspective let me draw you an analogy:

You have just opened your finest high street flagship store, you have spent a fortune on the building, fixtures and fittings, your buyers have sourced the finest inventory at amazing prices, you have advertised in the national papers on TV and radio. The customers are queuing out the door but when they come in they are just not going to the checkouts. The problem is there is no staff on the floor, or the one staff member there can’t understand what the customer is asking for or is “ignorant” of what’s in stock and when he gets asked he just sulkily says you don’t carry products fitting the customer’s request and all but sends them next door. There is no information about the products anywhere (such as sizes, prices or colors) so nobody can find anything. The windows aren’t dressed so passing traffic won’t enter. There are no floor stacks to act as an impulse purchase, things are priced but the great offers aren’t highlighted and on top of all this the security cameras are off and the managers are in the cafeteria so no one is watching the customer behavior.

 

Now let’s see that scenario with a Celebros team in store:

Customers are met at the door, and politely asked what they are looking for. Then the smart multi-lingual assistant who understands true meaning behind any inquiry (in any language) walks the customer to the correct department, takes them down the right aisle, stops at the correct shelf and points to the most relevant item the customer is most likely to place in their basket. This item comes with all relevant attributes requested by the shopper (color, size, etc.).

On top of this as the customer is being escorted across the store various relevant offers pop up indicating famous brands or popular items in that department, items on sale and a free delivery service. When the item goes in the basket the assistant shows the customer relevant items they might also like, not just batteries or accessories, but items other people have historically bought with the same item.

So now you have a sales floor manager on a one to one basis for every customer, who is also recording what they touched, how long they read the label for, whether they turned it over and read the back, he follows them round the store and notes how long it takes to walk down each aisle, everything they did in fact whilst in the store. Being a gifted floor manager, he remembers this information and will use it for other customers who demonstrate the same behavior.

Sounds better, doesn’t it? This is what Celebros can do for you.

Celebros is Revolutionizing the e-Commerce Shopping Experience

June 18, 2012

Celebros is the global leader in site search, navigation, merchandizing and conversion technologies but that hasn’t always been the case. Not too long ago Celebros was a sole provider of site search but realized they could offer a great deal more to e-Commerce merchants. Celebros created ConversionProV8 which is a feature-rich suite with not only a concept-based semantic site-search but nine cutting-edge features. This revolutionary technology has helped Celebros become an international leader, catapulting the company to the top of the e-Commerce industry, and has their competition scratching their heads.

At the recent Internet Retailer Conference and Exhibition (IRCE 2012) held in Chicago everyone was “buzzing” about the overwhelming response to ConversionProV8.

E-commerce retailers, partners and even the competition wanted to experience first-hand how the features worked and get a closer look at how this leading conversion technology suite is transforming the e-Commerce retailer’s website and business.

“Since we implemented Celebros’ ConversionProV8, our search results have been vastly improved,” said Jody Sherman, CEO and Co-Founder of Ecomom.com.  “The speed of results and the positive impact on our server loads has really helped with our capacity as well.  It’s also by far the easiest Magento integration we’ve had.”

“Our conversion technologies will give e-Commerce retailers the most powerful and effective tools available to convert visitors and browsers into actual paying customers,” said Ofer Alt, CEO of Celebros. “We believe that Celebros’ ConversionProV8 will give e-Commerce retailers the necessary features to simplify their customers shopping experience.”

Celebros’ ConversionProV8 solution is the most powerful site-search merchandizing and navigation tool on the market. Designed as the ultimate tool for today’s online merchandizing and e-commerce professionals with the “best of breed” concept-based semantic site-search, ConversionProV8 simplifies daily search and merchandizing tasks that every e-tailer faces.  ConversionProV8 has nine features that set them apart from the competition. This state of the art suite was designed for and by e-commerce professionals.  The nine features include:1.    

  1. Concept-based natural language Site Search understands a shopper’s intent and returns relevant and accurate results – on the first page – with a response time of 0.05 seconds or less, every time
  2. Advanced Auto Complete completes your customer’s search terms as they type, returning accurate results with lightning fast speed. Your most popular products are matched to the most popular queries, perfectly showcasing your catalog
  3. Multi-Select Navigation enables customers to select multiple values or attributes in the same search. The Multi-Select tool enhances user experience by allowing shoppers to select multiple options in each search thus being able to find what they want faster and in the same way they would look for in a real shop
  4. Guided Navigation is the most popular tool for online shoppers. By connecting your shop’s navigation and search you are streamlining the shopping experience in your shop there for allowing your customers to search and navigate for products they want with the least amount of effort and the most positive results
  5. Cross-Sell is a feature that knows your inventory better than you do. Expose customers to more products, increase average order size! Like any good salesperson, Cross Sell’s powerful recommendation engine “knows” your inventory and suggests additional items that may be of interest to your customers while they’re shopping
  6. Virtual Categories help to instantly introduce new product groups to match market trends and demands. Creating new points of interest in your shop without manipulating your catalog has never been so easy
  7. Dynamic Merchandizing Engine allows you to create banner campaigns, redirect landing pages and other campaign types in just minutes
  8. Gift/Product Finder guided shopping funnel directs shoppers to what they are looking for, immediately delivering useful and personalized results based on the user input
  9. LiveSight Analytics helps you get an “under the hood” look at what’s bringing your visitors to your site. See what your visitors are focusing on while visiting your site, what they click on and why they are not converting into paid customers.

Celebros ConversionProV8 is the ultimate solution for action rich features designed for e-Commerce excellence.  If you haven’t seen the Conversion ProV8 demonstration you will definitely want to experience what e-Commerce merchants are raving about.

Empower Your Customers’ Online Shopping Experience with Guided Navigation

April 9, 2012

by Ofer Alt, CEO

 

For the most part, e-retailers devote an enormous amount of resources into building their site, making it inviting exciting and interesting. That’s all well and good – but are they giving equal time to search and navigation?  Are they giving their potential customers the right tools to find the products they came to buy?

A great looking site – your storefront —  is important for bringing in  the curious, potential customer.  Converting that curious shopper into a paying customer is, of course, your desired goal.  Having a powerful, intelligent site search feature is a key component for any online shop. We know th­­­­­at customers who use site search are responsible for upwards of 55% of an online shop’s total revenue.

Still, there’s a way to enhance that site search experience and give customers an even more powerful shopping experience.  ConversionPro V8’s Guided Navigation feature empowers shoppers by narrowing their search, making your site easy to navigate.  Customers will find exactly what they’re looking for with minimal effort and the most positive results — in the shortest possible time.

Exactly how does this work?  Most people begin a search with vague and non-specific terms and get frustrated with either a lack of specific results or too many returned results.  What they’re missing is the product’s attributes, which, had they input them into the search, would yield better results.  For example, someone searching for a “little black dress” may get too many results become overwhelmed and leave the site.  They didn’t narrow their search because they didn’t dig down deep enough.

What guided navigation does is provide that drop down list of attributes, or facets, for that search and narrows down the choices to a simple click.  Going back to the “little black dress,” the choices could be narrowed by dress length, size, price, manufacturer, fabric, style, etc.  Guided navigation is especially powerful for sites that carry large inventories with a broad range of features, like tools or medical supplies.

So guide your shoppers with ConversionPro V8’s Guided Navigation and give your customers the easiest, most powerful online shopping experience available.  You’ll see your e-shop benefit from impressive conversion rates and increased revenue.

How (Real Time) Analytics Can Help Predict Customer Behavior

March 27, 2012

by Ofer Alt, CEO Celebros.com

Many e-retailers rely on analytics to monitor customer behavior, evaluate traffic sources and understand which products are selling.    Reports can be generated by Google Analytics, for example, that will provide a good breakdown of what customers are doing when they visit their site.  Valuable information, for sure, but it is all in the past tense. These analytics simply cannot show current activity or fine-tune results, such as identifying where customers are clicking on a given page or what they’re ignoring.

As a result, online retailers can only make changes based on hindsight “reactive”.  While this may help predict some buyer behavior, it is somewhat limiting.  This can also mean lost customers and revenue.

What if you could see what customers were doing on your site, in real time, “predictive”?  And what if you could make meaningful changes, like directing customers to the products you want them to see – or deleting those with lagging sales – while they’re shopping?

You can.  Only Celebros offers a unique “under the hood” look at what’s really happening on your site, while it’s happening.  With our LiveSight Analytics, one of the 13 features included in our ConversionPro V8 Solution, you actually get a real time look at customer behavior.

Here’s how it works:  Using real-time analytics, live Heatmaps and live traffic source tracking, LiveSight converts comprehensive data into visual tools and analyzes visitor behavior and trends while they are on your site.  You see it as a live overlay on your website.

Featured in Mashable’s “Spark of Genius” series, this easy to use technology makes it simple to see exactly how visitors are using and interacting with your site.

By tracking and capturing real time analytics, you’ll be able to make instant changes and updates as needed, because you’ll be able to see how customers are interacting with your site, where they’re clicking, the content they’re searching for, what they’re buying or not buying and why.

Get to know what’s really happening on your site so you can keep it current, relevant and optimized, and tailored to your customers’ buying habits.

How Celebros Beat Google To The Future

March 18, 2012

by Ofer Alt

Earlier today, I noticed a LinkedIn post that read: “Google Gives Search a Refresh.”    Naturally, being an avid user of almost all things Google, I clicked on the link and was somewhat amazed by the article’s title: “With Semantic Search, Google Eyes Competitors.”

Google is, by and large, a text based search engine with semantic search capabilities that delivers rather good results based on keywords entered into the search box.  In an interview with Computerworld, Google Fellow Amit Singhal described how Google “is working to give its search engine a better understanding of the words used in queries.”   He explained that Google’s ability to deliver this experience is just a function of how the search engine understands the question, and also “truly understanding all the data that’s out there. And right now, our understanding is pretty darn limited.”

Singhal continued to describe what he sees as “the next generation of search” based on “how humans understand the world.”  In other words, Google is planning a complete overhaul of its search engine, which will, as Singhal sees it, take them into ‘the future of search.’   As it stands now, he explained, when a user enters a query, “we cross our fingers and hope there’s a Web page out there with the answer.”

Naturally, I thought “Really?  Google??  And then I asked myself this:  Has Google been “misleading” users with false or irrelevant information because of its inability to actually understand the true intent behind the users query?”

Why is it my business to ask this question?

Because site search is my business. And because my company, Celebros, has been providing “the next generation of search” for the past 12 years.

As the recognized global leader in site-search, merchandizing and conversion technologies for online retailers, Celebros owns 2 patents and has built its platform entirely on “semantic search” technologies that are powered by our 250 natural language processing (NLP) smart algorithms patents.

Not only has Celebros beaten Google to “the future” by at least 12 years with the fastest (average response times of 0.05 seconds or less) most powerful semantic conversion technologies engine for e-commerce merchants, our patented technology is available in seven foreign languages!

Yes, I admit that our technologies are used by e-commerce websites across the globe vs. the “traditional” content sites but shouldn’t feeding your browsers relevant and correct results be of top priority, I mean isn’t that what search and service is all about?

Since early 2000, Celebros has been empowering e-commerce merchants around the world with powerful semantic based conversion technologies which allow visitors and customers’ to find the products they want using their own natural language and unique terms, “based on how humans understand the world” to quote Singhal.

In essence, we provide a bridge between human language and the merchants’ product catalog.  At Celebros, we like to say that people are not droids.  There is no one specific way to search.

Let me give you an example.

Suppose you are a consumer in the market for a brand new white Japanese car.  You begin your search like most people, on Google.com.  You type the following query in your natural human language,  “White Japanese Cars.”  But instead of getting relevant, organic results based on your natural query such as Toyota, Nissan, Honda etc. you are shown all kinds of irrelevant links, such as “Why do the Japanese love white cars;” and “Why are so many cars in Japan white?”

This is a perfect example of the error common to text based search, and the way Google currently “services” its customers.

Not convinced? Let me give you another example. Let’s say you are about to get engaged and you are looking for that perfect pink diamond ring you know she loves.  The only problem is that you have a limited budget.  How do you convey your rather simple request on the website in the same way that you would ask a human salesperson?  It’s simple!

With Celebros’ semantic based conversion technologies, a consumer can go to a website and enter into the search bar: “white mens addidas shoes size 13,” and be served with the exact results the customers was expecting.  Now that is relevancy!  No wonder our customers see their average conversions increase 300 – 800%.  Note, we even misspelled the brand name (adidas).

But don’t just take my word for it:  Try it yourself by going to www.roadrunnersports.com and entering the above query.

Celebros has taken this natural semantic language approach and successfully incorporated the technology into 13 different conversion technologies for e-commerce merchants.  Among them are site search, guided navigation, predictive merchandizing, cross-sell and product recommendations, product finders, rich advanced auto-complete, analytics and more.

I could not have said it any better than Dan Olds, analyst at Gabriel Consulting Group.  “By adding semantic algorithms to the process, the results should be more suited to answering the questions people are actually asking, rather than just delivering keyword matches. The process should also reduce user frustration and “search fatigue.”

Olds’ last point is extremely important.   “Reducing user frustration and search fatigue” is something every e-retailer wants to avoid at all costs.

If you look at the analytics chart below, you’ll see how semantic search keeps a customer engaged – in other words – how it reduces frustration and search fatigue.  Specifically, this represents a live customer who used the semantic site search feature on a site that is equipped with Celebros Conversion Pro V8 suite of conversion technologies.

The two sections, “Visits without site search” and “Visits with site search” tell two very different stories. It is obvious to even the novice that the “visits with site search” segment produces a much greater overall user experience by drastically reducing the bounce rate (users leaving the site) and increasing the time spent on the site by a factor of 3.  Also, in this analytics snapshot, the average amount of pages the visitor viewed per visit, jumped from a mere 5.21 to just over 15

I guess all that is left to say to Google at this point is this:

Welcome to the (present) future.

Site-Search for Magento based e-commerce stores from Celebros

November 8, 2011

Site-Search for Magento based e-commerce stores from Celebros

Unlike SQL-based search engines that provide results based on the search term, a concept-based search works based on the product type searched. The basic idea behind conceptual search is to provide the user with fewer, yet more specific results.

 

Most concept-based search solutions use Natural Language Processing algorithms to differentiate between the various components of the search term. To be more precise, these site search solutions can effortlessly identify which part of the search term is a product, an attribute, or a price range.

 

A conceptual search not only displays more accurate results for the product that has been searched for, but also shows results that are closely related to the search query. In the end, shoppers get to see what exactly they were looking for, plus a list of other related products that might draw their attention. So, this type of site-search solution will not only widen the scope of search, but will also improve sales and site traffic by providing accurate results every time.

 

An effective conceptual search solution is the one that is dictionary-based, which means it can efficiently auto-correct spelling mistakes that users are likely to make. Also, there are a few search solutions that recommend synonyms for various products in the site’s catalog, thus enhancing the user experience.

 

Unlike ordinary in-site search solutions that display the “no result page” for an unavailable product search, certain concept-based search solutions display search results of similar products. So, customers will not have the urge to go out of the site when they don’t find the product they were actually seeking.

 

Certain concept-based search solutions can even understand price terms and thereby provide a list of products that fit the shopper’s budget. For instance, customers searching for “size 32 beige pants under $30” will be provided with a complete and more relevant list of all the products under the specified price range.
