Miinto Uses RichRelevance Personalization to Drive 47% Growth for Lockdown Affected Independent Boutiques
Miinto, a leading Scandinavian fashion marketplace operating across Europe, has tripled its business in the last three years and has experienced a surge of +500% in inquiries from independent retail stores offering high-quality fashion brands since March. With sharp decline in-store footfalls, and consumers turning to online shopping for fashion needs, regional retailers are finding online marketplaces like Miinto to be a real savior.
Miinto partners with over 2000 retailers to showcase more than 5000 brands and over 500,000 active products, and offers superior customer experience to shoppers. A big reason for Miinto’s digital success has been their investment in digital personalization, AI, and their ability to seamlessly tune digital strategy, test, and experiment winning experiences at great speed.
