Words Not Required: Visual Search Revolutionizes E-Commerce
When customers shop online, the words they use in the search bar and the name of a specific item they're looking for don't always match up. That can lead to dead ends, a high bounce rate, and a missed opportunity to create a loyal shopper. A new style of search is revolutionizing the retail industry. Join a panel of retail technology and e-commerce leaders as they discuss visual search's impact on digital commerce.
They'll deep dive into visual search, and share the best image recognition and visual search use cases that enhance customer experience for Forever21, Argos, and more. The panelists will cover the impact visual search has on important KPI's, such as increases in conversion rates up to 30% and average order values up by 10%. Plus, they'll share advice on how companies can add this search component to their own digital commerce strategies, how to measure results, and how to guarantee success.
