Contentsquare Issues Global Online Holiday Shopping Data Focused on Retail Fashion

Stats on Site Performance, User Profiles and User Navigation Show Shoppers are Persistent about Taking Advantage of Deals During Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Among Other Findings

Experience analytics leader Contentsquare released in-depth, global data on online holiday shopping with a focus on the retail fashion sector.  The data, which was collected from Nov. 15 through Dec. 24 across 314 million user sessions, looks at site performance, users profiles and user navigation, and how they change during Black Friday, Cyber Monday and the whole holiday season.

“Our data reveals many interesting user behavior trends that retailers would benefit from making note of and refining their online user experiences accordingly to ultimately increase sales and revenue,” said Aimee Stone Munsell, Contentsquare’s CMO. “For example, we found that shoppers are persistent about taking advantage of deals and getting their shopping done during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. This held true even though these online events came later in the season, so it’s clear people’s habits are now conditioned to these retail ‘holidays’.”

The data includes metrics like conversion rate, average cart size, traffic by device, and percentage of new visitors, bounce rate, number of pages seen and session time. Please see the data below:

CONVERSION RATE 

The 2019 shopping season recorded an average retail conversion rate of 2.85%. There was a peak in conversions during the Black Friday and Cyber Monday period, with the average conversion rate reaching 4.04%. This reflected a 41% increase to the average conversion rate during Black Friday/Cyber Monday versus the rest of the shopping season (Nov. 15 to Dec. 24).

AVERAGE CART

The average cart during the whole shopping season was $150.56 in the retail sector, however there was a peak during Black Friday/Cyber Monday period, when the average cart went up 10.54% to $166.43. The difference was even bigger on mobile, with the average cart going up 11.89% during Black Friday/Cyber Monday (compared to the whole holiday period).

TRAFFIC BY DEVICE

Mobile drives the lion’s share of traffic in the retail sector, accounting for 68% of traffic during the whole 2019 shopping season. Contentsquare’s data showed a 1% increase in mobile traffic between 2018 and 2019 and a 6% decrease in desktop traffic. The biggest change year to year was the tablet, whose traffic increased by 21% yet still only accounted for 5% of the total traffic.

PERCENTAGE OF NEW VISITORS 

More than half of holiday shopping season traffic was from new visitors. However, during the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales, the proportion of returning visitors in the traffic mix increased by 2%.

Contentsquare’s New Analytics Platform Pinpoints Negative Customer Experiences

Contentsquare launches most complete experience analytics platform in industry

New Platform Empowers Digital Teams to Troubleshoot Issues Fast and Innovate More

Experience analytics leader Contentsquare launches a major release of the most complete experience analytics platform on the market, helping brands to innovate based on customer behavior across digital channels.

Contentsquare now gives brands the ability to surface and quantify revenue-generating recommendations for experience improvements using artificial intelligence. Contentsquare customers can use these recommendations to immediately troubleshoot issues or innovate new ways to improve the experience. For example, teams can quickly understand the impact of changes to a web site or mobile app by comparing side-by-side the visitor experience over time or across split test versions.

Why It’s Important to Know Exactly When or Where Customers Are Having a Negative Experience

At the time of this announcement, we spoke to CMO of Contentsquare, Aimee Stone Munsell. Aimee provided her insights on the most contemporary definition of Customer Experience. She said, “When defining customer experience, it’s so easy to think purely in terms of post-sale satisfaction. As a result, many brands get hung up on the idea of CX measurement as little more than just customer surveys and Net Promoter Scores. While these methods have their benefits, they all occur after a customer’s journey is complete. As such they cannot show exactly when or where customers are having a negative experience.”

The newly released Contentsquare platform overcomes this issue. Through experience analytics technology, which creates visualizations and recommendations based on visitor behavior, brands can see exactly where they can improve the digital experience to meet their customers’ goals and increase business results.  This goes far beyond traditional ‘find and fix’ solutions. With our platform, marketers and insight teams can discover new opportunities to increase revenue — tying the customer experience directly back to ROI.

This update to the platform is the work of a combined team of 170 innovators in R&D and product development who came together through the combination of Contentsquare and Clicktale, which was announced in July 2019. The teams have been working closely with customers to prioritize the use cases that drive the most return and upside for digital leaders across industries such as retail, travel, automotive, financial services and telecommunications.

With Contentsquare Experience Analytics, You Have More Room to Do Insight-Driven Experimentation with Less Risk

The benefits to Contentsquare’s customers are huge. Armed with quantified alerts, the tool gives resource-stretched digital teams the ability to discover new growth opportunities to increase revenue, (worth up to nine times the revenue opportunity of fixing bugs). It also aligns the whole business around a single version of the truth with regards to digital customer behavior, with intuitive visualizations of macro behavior, and session replays for seeing behavior at the individual session level. As a result, teams can more quickly and confidently prioritize and execute on the experience changes that will mean the most for their business.

Feliz Papich, director of product management, Crocs said, “Contentsquare aids our ability to innovate, giving us more room to do insight-driven experimentation with less risk. With the visualizations, we don’t have to make assumptions about the visitor experience, we can make enhancements based on tangible behavior. Contentsquare makes it easier for us to have the hard discussions about what to prioritize and implement to meet our big growth goals.”

Contentsquare’s new platform helps brands capitalize on the fact that consumers who receive a better customer experience spend up to 140% more than when they receive a poor experience (Harvard Business Review). It also helps brands operate more like best-in-class digital businesses, which can have 2-3x the lead generation and sales conversions versus the average according to Contentsquare insights.

Jonathan Cherki, founder and CEO, Contentsquare said: “At Contentsquare, we envision a world where every digital interaction is used to create better experiences and improve the quality of people’s lives. Traditionally, the barrier to turning that vision into a reality is that brands have been in the dark when it comes to understanding specifically how to design the experiences their customers will love and want to use again and again.

“With our technology, though, we are empowering brands with unique behavioral insights to create better experiences — and connecting those improvements more directly to the upside they drive for  their business and for their customers.”

Contentsquare Acquires Clicktale to Create the Definitive Global Leader in Experience Analytics

Combination sets the bar for behavioural insights critical to compete on digital experience

Contentsquare, a leading digital experience insights platform trusted by brands like AccorHotels, Sephora and Volkswagen, announces it has acquired Israel-based experience analytics company Clicktale, another leading digital experience platform, with clients such as Dell, RBS and T-Mobile. This combination creates the definitive global leader in the experience analytics market.

The combined entity serves 600 enterprise clients around the world, including 30% of the Fortune Global 100, with strong presence in North America, Europe and Asia. Its global community of 12,000 users include analytics, e-commerce, e-merchandising, content, marketing, UX and IT professionals. Just last week, Contentsquare announced the acquisition of Pricing Assistant, an innovative pricing optimisation and merchandising solution, making this the company’s second acquisition.

Contentsquare and Clicktale both go beyond traditional web analytics and heatmaps to give e-commerce and digital teams a granular understanding of customer behavior on their web, mobile sites and apps. They collectively analyse 9 trillion digital interactions every day to provide the ready-to-use KPIs, benchmarks and recommendations many prestigious brands rely on to improve their digital conversions, revenue and loyalty. Together, Contentsquare and Clicktale provide the richest set of behavioural data, solutions and innovations to empower companies to understand how their digital experiences perform and prioritise the improvements that matter most.

“The combination of Clicktale and Contentsquare heralds an unprecedented wealth of digital data that enables companies to interpret and predict the impact of any digital element — including user experience, content, price, reviews and product — on visitor behaviour,” said Jonathan Cherki, founder and CEO of Contentsquare. “Increasingly, this unique data can be used to activate custom digital experiences in the moment through an ecosystem of over 50 martech partners. With a global community of customers and partners, we are accelerating the interpretation of human behaviour online and shaping a future of irresistible customer experiences.”

While they share a common mission rooted in behavioural data science, solutions from Clicktale and Contentsquare are highly complementary. Clicktale’s focus has been to help digital teams see and solve issues to reduce friction in the buying journey, while Contentsquare empowers the discovery of formerly unseen opportunities to improve conversion and optimise content performance.

“Clicktale boasts a heritage of driving meaningful insights for its customers while forging a path in digital experience innovation,” said Shlomi Hagai, CEO of Clicktale. “Contentsquare and Clicktale are exceptionally compatible. By combining our resources, we unlock the next level of digital experience success for our customers.”

Contentsquare, a leading digital experience insights platform trusted by brands like Avis, Sainsbury’s, Sephora and Walmart, announced it has acquired Paris-based Pricing Assistant, a prominent provider of online pricing optimization and e-merchandising solutions, to add pricing, product and competitive data into its behavioral analysis. The addition of e-merchandising delivers on Contentsquare’s mission to make it easy for everyone working in digital Commerce to understand the intent and goals of their customers and create superior shopping experiences.

Fueled by intelligence, Contentsquare goes beyond traditional KPIs to give companies a granular understanding of the performance of their web, mobile site and app — down to which in-page elements are encouraging visitor engagement and which are stalling conversions. By adding e-merchandising analysis — including product, inventory, delivery, reviews, pricing and promotions data — to Contentsquare’s behavioral analysis, brands will be able to predict which online shoppers are likely to buy or not and how to tailor the experience to improve conversion and customer satisfaction.

“By acquiring Pricing Assistant, we are bringing mission-critical merchandising capabilities to the Contentsquare platform, expanding the depth and accessibility of customer understanding,” said Jonathan Cherki, CEO and founder of Contentsquare. “Today there is no other experience analytics platform that integrates the effects of pricing and merchandising into the analysis of customer behavior. We’re excited to welcome the talented Pricing Assistant team and to further innovate with them as we bring the power of merchandising into our solutions.”

In the last year, the company raised a $60 million Series C round to bring its total funding to $120 million; launched new products like CS Live, a browser extension that enables clients to display key behavior metrics directly onto their website without the need for a dashboard; and partnered with a number of leading companies, including most recently Salesforce.

Contentsquare Launches Digital Happiness Index to Help Brands Quantify Digital Customer Satisfaction

Contentsquare Launches Digital Happiness Index to Help Brands Quantify Digital Customer Satisfaction

Contentsquare, an AI-powered digital experience insights platform, launched the Digital Happiness Index (DHI), a pioneering metric to help brands measure the quality of the experience they deliver across the web, mobile sites and apps.

For the first time, IT, product, marketing and merchandising teams can all track a single digital customer satisfaction score. The Digital Happiness Index nets out the collective impact of the dozens of actions taking place across departments to provide a brand with a single common barometer.

The Digital Happiness Index is a holistic experience score because it goes beyond traditional engagement, revenue and conversion metrics — often influenced by contextual factors such as seasonal promotions — to unlock a deeper understanding of customers’ digital happiness. The Digital Happiness Index analyzes a rich set of human behavioral data such as mouse movements and finger taps to more deeply and objectively evaluate customer satisfaction.

The Digital Happiness Index uses behavioral data from the Contentsquare platform to analyze the following 5 Dimensions of Digital Experience:

1. Flawless: Are customers enjoying a smooth experience free of technical performance issues?

2. Engaged: Are customers engaging with and satisfied with the content?

3. Sticky: Are visitors loyal, returning to the site frequently?

4. Intuitive: Does the navigation make it easy for visitors to enjoy a complete experience?

5. Empowered: How easy is it for customers to find the products and services right for them?

“Our customers wanted a calculation that is not contaminated by the ‘noise’ created by product and campaign launches, and which is unaffected by the many biases inherent to traditional methods of measuring satisfaction such as customer surveys. By creating a metric calculated strictly from customer behaviors, the Digital Happiness Index provides companies with a single score, which can be used to track the ROI of digital improvements,” said Jean-Marc Bellaiche, Chief Partnership & Strategy Officer at Contentsquare.

Digital Happiness Index experts from Contentsquare will be available at the Adobe Summit and at the One to One eCommerce Salon. The conference in Monaco will also be the stage for Contentsquare’s fourth UX Awards — an annual ceremony held in partnership with the One to One eCommerce Salon.

This is Contentsquare’s third major launch in six months. In 2018, the platform launched CS Live, a browser extension that enables clients to display key behavior metrics directly onto their website without the need for a dashboard. In 2019, it launched AI Alerts, a monitoring system that allows brands to detect and react to digital experience anomalies faster.

CS Live Allows Companies to Glean Instant Best Practices Insights in the Time it Takes to Browse Their Site

Continuing to provide marketers and brands with deeper analytics and insights into how and why online users do what they do, ContentSquare, a digital experience insights platform, announced a new solution – CS Live – that delivers customer experience (CX) information in real-time with one click.

“Because digital is a mission critical channel today, we want to make sure that, for companies we support, key stakeholders can access customer experience insights as easily as they can walk into their brick and mortar stores, and observe where customers are going, which display they are looking at, where they hesitate, where they might experience frustration, etc. In particular, we believe senior executives needs to access this data directly, without needing to rely exclusively on expert analysts,” said Jonathan Cherki, CEO and Founder of ContentSquare. “Relying on a handful of experts is neither efficient nor scalable. Enterprises – many of which are overwhelmed with data – need to make their website optimization decisions based on insightful experience data that drives conversions instead of on their gut feeling.”

ContentSquare, a digital experience insights platform, announced the launch of its Auto-Zone product, an artificial intelligence-based recognition algorithm that redefines online data collection by replacing content tagging and tag configuration with automatic element identification on each area of a website.

With Auto-Zone, marketers can set up content elements through the ContentSquare interface using artificial intelligence, eradicating the need to place unique tags on each individual page element before they can answer related customer journey questions. The technology “zones” and provides semantic understanding of the data, enabling brands to improve their display process on their site, while also providing unique insight into customer journeys and overall UX. This simplifies reporting and exponentially accelerates optimizations and KPIs.

“With Auto-Zone we are defining the end of the tagging era,” said Jonathan Cherki, CEO of ContentSquare. “Before Auto-Zone, analytics required tags to measure behavior and large amounts of time were spent tagging and updating them. This technology opens up the path towards a more semantic understanding and personalization of websites through analytics. For example, if hesitation on the add-to-cart button is trending up, then marketers will get notified about it, along with insights to increase buying incentives dynamically, such as implementing a new promotion or sale.”
