12-22-2016  |  By: Adrecom

Bundling and kitting products is a great idea on a number of levels. Kitting (aka “bundling”) is the grouping/pairing, packaging, and marketing of separate but related, complimentary, and compatible products for sale or presentation as one unit. Multiple products are sold as an individual SKU. “Kitting” and “bundling” are interchangeable terms in this context.

Companies, merchants, and promotional teams love product bundling because it just makes their job easier, it makes them more effective, expands choices, makes their customers happy, and is a powerful tool for moving merchandise and increasing revenue.

02-13-2014  |  By: Adrecom

Nearly all products have options of some type or another and presenting them clearly is of great benefit to businesses.  I look at the benefits of how product variations can improve your business and make your customers happy.

A cosmetics website has many products, while each product has a number of color or shade options. The user interface was designed to feature color swatches related to the product. The product variations here allows the e-commerce and purchasing process to be simplified. The customer doesn’t have to see the same product multiple times with the different colors but rather see a clear presentation of the products with its options. This example illustrates how product integration can improve navigation on the page and search results throughout the site.  This simplified presentation with the improved user experience leads to an improvement in the revenue stream.

They are group orientated buyers, primarily because they have been influenced by their baby boomer parents who have similar characteristics. 73% of millennials said that consumers care more about customers reviews than businesses does.  That clearly presents the power of UGC.
