1:1 personalization on mobile for thousands of customers

Unlocking engagement, discovery and conversion on mobile is key for L’OCCITANE. More customers are using the device as one of the first places they start looking for products. Coupled with the growing influence of sites like Instagram (one L’OCCITANE account has over 740,000 followers), there was a need to make discovering products seamless from social media to mobile web.

With AI, the solution matches the most relevant products based on a visitors intent (swipes, clicks and views). Each experience becomes unique and personalized to each visitor.

Helping late-night browsers get some rest

Qubit identifies segments of users that are underserved, the ecommerce team could see visitors, across domains, visiting the website between the hours of 10pm - 5am.

Based on the hypothesis that these people are potentially having trouble sleeping, an overlay appears during these hours to showcase L’OCCITANE pillow mist spray, developed to promote a restful sleep.

Social proof to complete the customer journey

Social proof is a personalization technique proven to boost conversion in ecommerce. L’OCCITANE knew this, and deployed messaging on the product detail page (PDP), for example ‘4 people are viewing this product’.
