If shoppers have trouble finding something in a brick-and-mortar store, they can ask a salesperson to direct them. Traditional retailers know their sales suffer if people who come in looking for a specific product can’t find what they need. They also know these customers are very valuable.
But customers are less likely to buy or return to the store if they’ve had a bad experience. That’s why retailers put a lot of effort into organizing merchandise and training their employees to help.
Online shoppers don’t have the luxury of asking a salesperson
where they can find a product
Your search engine and chatbots fulfill that role. They both need to be trained—just like an employee—to know not only what you sell, but also the terminology people use for the many products on your site. If your search engine and virtual assistants don’t know these things, they can’t lead your customers to the right place and you ultimately lose sales.
Yet only 15 percent of online retail companies have dedicated resources to optimizing the site search experience. If search improvements aren’t prioritized, that means online customers aren’t always finding what they need. Not only do you lose a sale this time, but next time that customer will be more likely to go to your competitor first.
