Out of stock events may be causing your users to drop off without purchasing and these events support decision on stock level management, as well as product recommendations and cross-sell strategies.

Insightech helps dig into when these events happen, what happens before and after, and which products are high opportunities for cross-sell and up-sell strategies.

Key Questions To Answer

  • Which products are being seen as out of stock?
  • What alternatives are being shown to users and are they interacting with them?
  • Does out of stock being shown have an impact on conversions?

Site Search Analysis

Product searches show what your users are specifically looking for. It's also a chance to understand where missed opportunities happen on your website, and where search results don't match what your users want.

Insightech works with any kind of website search, and will also capture dynamic search recommendations, so that you can get full visibility on what your users want, what they are shown, and what they end up purchasing.

Key Questions To Answer

  • What are your users searching for, and does this align to product sales?
  • Which search queries result in conversions, and which don't?
  • How many results come up for each query/query category, and whether this impacts conversion rates?
  • Which searches result in zero products being shown?

AB Testing Analysis

If you are actively running AB tests on your website, you will want to understand more than simply whether an AB test was successful or not. Even in cases where you don't have a significant AB testing result, you will still want to learn how each AB test impacts user flows, and where users are dropping off.

Insightech can identify all of your AB tests for comparison, whether it's a messaging change, an element that's inserted into your page, or even an attribute in your dataLayer. You can easily explore user behaviours and micro-conversions across any AB testing variant.

Identifying Your AB Tests (with Segments)

Insightech can identify your AB test multiple ways through picking up your dataLayer, your URL structure, or simply looking at the HTML on your page. The easiest option is using HTML specific to your AB test.

To do this:

  1. Find the HTML of an element that is specific to your AB test (button, message, link, etc)
  2. Choose the right filter:
    1. Load DOM - if your content is loaded during page load
    2. DOM Change - if your content is injected into the page after page load

      PRO TIP: If you aren't sure how the content is loaded, but you know that it is unique to the AB test, then put the HTML in both rules and apply it under an "Any" search condition. This will find your AB test whether it shows up either during or after the page has loaded.
  3. Save your segment

For more details, read the Segments for HTML and Loaded Content section in our Common Segments (with examples) guide.

Key Questions To Answer

  • How many times have AB test variants been shown?
  • What pages do users visit when an AB test variant is shown?
  • What campaigns/channels do users use before seeing an AB test variant?
  • What do users interact with when an AB test variant is shown?
  • Which micro-conversions does each AB test influence?
  • Do AB testing variants change where users drop-off?
