Smart Data Collection Drives New BaubleBar Site

BaubleBar Swat Stylists

BaubleBar, which last relaunched in June of 2011, unveils a brand new site today.  All aspects of the new look and navigation were informed by careful data collection, which, as we keep saying, is the most important new thing for retailers to be doing.  BaubleBar’s new features look like a prime example of the good that can come out of when it’s effectively put into practice.

The site is undergoing a multi-stage roll-out, with the first phase offering customers more personalized pieces, exclusive collections, and original content featuring expertise from the in-house editorial team.  They’re also launching a “Guest Bartender” program, featuring capsule collections from style partners.  After working with big names like Nina Garcia and the Man Repeller, and seeing that these partnerships outperformed all others about four times over, across all metrics (traffic, conversion, sales, social lift — effective data collection!), the Guest Bartenders are becoming a permanent feature.

The new BaubleBar also offers more personalized attention from the customer experience arm, who’ve essentially been rebranded into a consumer facing entity known as the SWAT Team. The service offers a completely interactive customer experience.  Users can submit photos of dresses to accessorize, Pinterest boards for inspiration, budget restrictions, sizing preferences, and so on, and the team will incorporate all of this information into relevant jewelry suggestions.  Customers can chat with SWAT Stylists over email, appointment-based video chats, or visit The Bar (sounds a little like Apple’s Genius Bar) at the brand’s New York flagship.

This is a smart move.  By branding the customer service arm, the customer became more aware of them as a resource, thereby encouraging interaction.  As this increased, the team was able to curate data on shoppers’ preferences, key life events, and order history, ultimately leveraging it to form the final SWAT service, and, you know, increase sales.  After beta testing the SWAT service for five months, BaubleBar saw a 300% lift in average order value and a 250% lift in the frequency by which customers returned to shop.

    Hi. Thank you for viewing my url. I was delighted to realize that we were both raised in Hartselle and attended Winona State University (MN). Visiting to that classes and becoming a Bindery Machine Tender has assisted me to better adjust sticking to near the canal. Looking forward to viewing your photo soon after you inspect our own slope. Remember forward my compliments to your mother and father. Thank you so much

    Along with every thing that appears to be developing within this particular subject material, your opinions tend to be rather refreshing. On the other hand, I am sorry, because I do not subscribe to your whole suggestion, all be it exhilarating none the less. It looks to me that your remarks are generally not completely validated and in fact you are your self not really thoroughly convinced of your argument. In any case I did take pleasure in reading through it.

    I’m commenting to make you know what a really good experience my wife’s daughter enjoyed going through yuor web blog. She learned some details, not to mention what it’s like to have an ideal coaching character to get most people without hassle understand a variety of extremely tough topics. You really exceeded people’s expectations. Many thanks for coming up with such important, healthy, informative and as well as easy guidance on your topic to Janet.
