Driving Website Functionality

Product content is essential to ensure your website works effectively.

Website functionality

Search:

If your site has indexed content, then search is going to work more effectively, helping customers get to relevant results faster. So for example, if a customer enters ‘large blue shirt’ and you have those words indexed from your content, they should get taken to a large blue shirt. The customer finds what they want and they are more likely to buy.

Website functionality

Browse:

Some customers prefer to browse to a product using data attributes. This is especially true for products with standardised features or a large number of potential specifications. With structured data, customers can refine the number of results returned to get exactly what they want. To do this well, ensuring the right results are returned, requires excellent product data management. That’s where we come in.

Website functionality

Comparison:

Many websites enable customers to compare features and benefits of products. This is especially useful when comparing products with many features or specifications e.g. cameras, wine etc. A good comparison experience is only possible with clean and complete structured data, otherwise values are missing on some products or attributes are inconsistently named. Again, this requires excellent product data management.

Website functionality

Data Driven Content:

Good websites make sure that the content that appears on the product page is relevant to the product. Whether that is extended content, such as buyers guides, or cross-sell and up-sell products. It is possible to manually configure every product page, or every product page within a category but having rules based on product attributes enables your content to be finely tuned for the product being displayed. You guessed it, excellent product data management makes this possible.

Without well-managed product data, the functionality of your website will be poor and the investment in your online/multi-channel strategy will not be realised.
