Web Behavior Triggers to identify in E-commerce

Web Behaviours to Identify in eCommerce#

In this guide#

In this guide, we walk through the various behavioural automation rules,that can be used to improve the navigation for an e-commerce website visitor.

For this walkthrough, we have broken down the website into Homepage, Product Search Page, Product Details Page and Cart Page. There could, of course, be many more pages and use cases other than the ones covered in this guide.

Homepage#

  1. Homepage Help → Brands do not want visitors spending too much time on the homepage. Visitors should quickly move to the next stage in the funnel, ie, product search, product details or the cart checkout page. We can use URL Targeting, Seconds on Page, Seconds of Inactivity and Scroll % triggers to identify visitors who are stuck on the homepage, and use Inbound Campaigns to help them move to the next stage.

Product Search Page#

  1. Product Search Filter Nudge → When the visitor spends too much time on the Product Search page, you might want to nudge them to apply filters in order to find more relevant results. URL Targeting, Seconds on Page, Seconds of Inactivity and Scroll % are the right triggers to identify such users

    • Collect Opt-in for outbound retargeting
    • Nudge them to Save the Search Result for the next time they visit
    • Ask them to apply product filters in case they didn’t find anything relevant

    To identify such visitors, Exit Intent trigger comes in handy.
