Avon

There was limited knowledge (and agreement!) about the personas driving Avon’s online sales.

Key Results

Greater understanding of online user behaviour and shopping behaviour

Validated insights from quantitative and qualitative sources

Alignment between acquisition and conversion activities

Because there was little understanding around how different users were shopping online, Avon didn’t know whether their website was fit-for-purpose which was, in turn, preventing them from personalising the user experience.

So how did we help?

We took a two pronged approach:

  1. Gathering qualitative insights from a survey designed to unveil different persona types
  2. Reviewing web data in Google Analytics to identify and verify customer segments 

After analysing the results of the survey and analysing users’ web behaviour, we found parallel insights which helped us to identify meaningful persona groups focused primarily on browsing behaviors and patterns, as well as product groups.

What does this mean for Avon?

By providing insight into how their users behave online, our work has helped Avon to build a greater understanding of the personas driving their online sales. They have been able to use this insight across other trading activities, including PPC and email campaigns, for more targeted digital acquisition.

The next step is to begin a personalisation programme of experimentation, evaluating the impact this new knowledge can have on the conversion rate.

Key Results

Greater understanding of online user behaviour and shopping behaviour

Alignment between acquisition and conversion activities

The team ooze with passion, and they combine their very obvious love for their jobs with data and a good business understanding to reach sensible outcomes and insight led suggestions.
