Increasing a Retailer’s Holiday AOV by 11.3% with Customer Delight

With Black Friday conquered, this national home furnishings retailer wanted to find unique and interesting ways to promote specific holiday-themed products. The team at Granify was able leverage creative solutions and holiday cheer to unlock hidden revenue during the busiest time of year.

The Challenge

This US-headquartered furniture titan knew Christmas was a time of year where adding an extra bit of ‘jolliness’ to the customer experience could make a huge impact on revenue. The retailer wanted an out of the box, creative solution to highlight their products, all while creating an experience that would leave their customers feeling delighted.

Knowing that a concept like this would require a team that had the creativity, knowledge, and ability to work collaboratively alongside them, they reached out to Granify.

The Solution

The Granify team jumped right in, coming together to brainstorm the most creative executions. From the plethora of ideas discussed, the top three were brought forward to the retailer, who chose one to implement immediately. 

Granify’s in-house design and animation teams then refined and built the campaign, while our engineers configured the campaign’s technical set up. The end result: a whimsical on-site experience optimized to sprinkle the shopper journey with holiday delight, all while highlighting new products to the viewer.

A Tough Nut to Crack

When looking at potential options for this client, two criteria needed to be met:

"Can we have someone so charmed with the interaction on the site, that it puts them in a much better state of mind to convert with this retailer?"

We Got Cracking

The Granify team sprung into action, brainstorming some rough ideas and then looking to Chief Concept Guru Taylor to start the ideation process.Taylor then began crafting rough sketches for ideas that would inspire and uplift customer spirits, all while uncovering hidden revenue for the client. 

After some small feedback from the client, the design team got to work making Taylor’s vision a reality. And once the designs were completed, Chief Concept Wizard Robyn  brought the designs to life with animation. Planning out the structure and animation methods, soon Taylor’s initial sketches became an on-site reality.
