Cross-selling & Product Bundles

One of the ways you can use Personyze’s powerful recommendation engine is to show product bundles recommendations dynamically generated from transactional data. This type of recommendation has been proven highly effective at increasing avg. order value, and requires no insights or effort from your team to group the products together, as they are based on algorithms and crowd data from all shoppers.


Product Bundles Example: Home Appliance Website

On a home appliance store’s website, a visitor is viewing a laundry machine. Because this site is using Personyze’s dynamic Frequently Bought Together product bundle recommendations, the visitor will see several bundle options based on what other visitors with similar characteristics bought together most often, in the same transaction, or within a few days. These characteristics could be location, demographic, or other data.

Example Product Bundles:

  1. Laundry Machine + Filter + Extending Hose
  2. Laundry Machine + Dryer + On-Wheels Stand for Laundry Machine

Machine Learning for Powerful Relevance

Leveraging crowd wisdom data plus the convenience of a one-click product bundling with relevance of suggested items guaranteed by other shoppers’ habits consistently results in not only better sales, but a better shopping experience. Very often, the items that are suggested may be ones that the visitor would never have otherwise thought about needing, until after their package had already arrived. For example, a mobile microphone which requires an adapter to connect to a cell phone.

This is also a widget that gets better with time; because it’s based on machine learning, the more data that is accumulated, the more and more accurate the recommendations will become, and can be counted on to generate a significant percentage of your sales. The best part is that the engine and the shopper data are doing the work for you.
