Key Challenges

  • Online store was performing below expected industry standards despite a visible overall industry growth in online sales due to COVID.
  • Bounce rate was high and the conversion rate was low. This was mainly attributed to poor user experience on both desktop and mobile.
  • Various sales channels like Google Shopping and Merchant Centre were non-existent, which created increased dependencies on captive users and email lists.
  • Email acquisition channels created negative growth as the unsubscribe rate was higher than the new subscription rate.
  • Overall customer acquisition rate was below that of industry standards, which kept the company from acquiring new market share.
