As one of the savviest and chicest brands in luxury, Chanel needed an online presence that personified these long-standing characteristics. So when the time came for Chanel to step into a deeper embrace to eCommerce, we knew we needed to encompass a strategy using highlighted visuals that not only demonstrated the brand’s emphasis on aesthetics and stellar imagery but featured a user experience that contributed to the single most important aspect of any online shopping endeavor: conversions.
In heightening Chanel’s conversion rate optimization while making the best use of the brand’s promotional marketing publications, G & Co. utilized Chanel’s online channels to publish a differentiated assortment of content. This allowed us to demonstrate the brand’s atelier and behind-the-scenes scoops that enriched the customer user experience and fed into increased conversions.
With only a select category of items available for eCommerce shopping, we streamlined the number of options customers had in purchasing from Chanel’s online listing. G & Co. simplified the browsing and checkout experience from the items available to provide clear-cut illustrations showcasing Chanel’s extravagant and adeptly crafted catalog. Through an emphasis on storytelling and publishing differentiated content, we translated the same level of fascination found in Chanel’s in-store impressions in their eCommerce experience.
In addition, G & Co.’s deployed email marketing capabilities strengthened the quality of Chanel’s output. By placing their stellar imagery front and center in every user’s inbox, we captured attention at an increase and fueled the marketing engine for empowered sales and a closer affinity between consumers and the brand itself.
As with any digital product strategy, conversions served as our north star and precursed a design that reflected as much of Chanel’s allure as it did simplicity. Through these things as our guiding eCommerce design and conversion principles, G & Co. helped further spur the connection between Chanel and their steadfast customers.
