In today’s online retail landscape, customer expectations are evolving rapidly. Consumers appreciate personalized experiences, instant gratification, and effortless navigation – all while seeking true value.

Shoppers don’t stick around on an e-commerce site for long if it offers lackluster search capabilities that don’t quickly meet their needs. 

Nosto, powered by customer, product, and content intelligence, is a Commerce Experience Platform (CXP) offering brands a suite of automation and AI-driven tools, designed to analyze data and drive online revenue growth. Recent research from Nosto revealed that 69% of consumers go straight to the search bar when they visit an online retailer. Unfortunately, 80% admit leaving because the on-site search experience didn’t meet their expectations.

Search functionality that doesn’t enable shoppers to find relevant products can dramaticlly impact revenue. Retailers surveyed across North America and the UK attribute around 39% of all traffic bouncing (shoppers leaving immediately) to poorly performing search. Nosto describes their research as, “paint[ing] a picture of merchants losing potential sales and frustrating shoppers with search experiences that fail to meet consumers’ expectations.”

Bottom Line: Without great search, retailers are leaving money on the table.

Lack of Relevant, Personalized Results

Nosto’s research also found a fascinating discrepancy between the views of brands and consumers. 99% of retail brands’ senior ecommerce professionals believe their search results are relevant. And yet, 69% of consumers complain that they often see irrelevant results

Apparently the retail pros are wrong, and the situation is even worse than what consumers perceive. In Nosto’s real-world site testing, 81% of ecommerce websites displayed irrelevant items when shoppers search even two-word queries.

Honestly, this research would be a bit bleak and discouraging if it weren’t for the fact that we have solutions available now – solutions that solve the problem and can be implemented fairly quickly.
