The Solution

Since 2017, N Brown has been using the advanced testing, segmentation and geo-location capabilities of Monetate to tailor Taggstar messages on ts power brands JD Williams, SimplyBe and Jacamo.

Taggstar's social proof software pulls crowd-sourced real-time data about product popularity and other trends derived from N Brown customers' browsing history. The messages include the number of people viewing an item, product reviews and ratings, top-trending items and product scarcity.

The Solution

Taggstar is partnered with Monetate, the global leader in personalisation software for consumer-facing brands, a solution that enables marketers to create relevant experiences for every customer.

Monetate makes it easy to test and optimise, segment and target and create true 1-to-1 experiences. With all this in one solution, marketers can improve the customer experience across web, email, mobile apps, in-store and other touch points, from content and creative, to product recommendations and offers.

Using Monetate's segmentation and personalisation tool, N Brown was able to change the look and feel of the Taggstar messages (style, text and colour) to match different customer groups.

For example, new customers and returning customers, males or female shoppers, and customers buying a one-off item, will see different messages. These optimised messages have been proven, through A/B testing, to increase engagement and sales and to reduce basket abandonment.

The Result

N Brown had previously used Taggstar and had seen conversion rates improve by 2.7% on SimplyBe over 90 days, and tracked additional revenue of c.£2 million.
