Retailer Gains 12 Percent Revenue Increase Using Behavioral Targeting
OREM, Utah – March 25, 2008 – Omniture, Inc. (NASDAQ:OMTR), a leading provider of online business optimization software, today announced that AutoAnything.com, a leading online retailer of automotive accessories and performance parts, has used Omniture Test&Target; to successfully improve user site experience and achieve a 12 percent increase in sales. Omniture’s online behavioral targeting capabilities delivered relevant experiences to AutoAnything.com’s returning visitors who had shown interest in various auto accessories merchandised by vehicle type. On average, the site caters to 1.4 million unique visitors per month.
“We already understand that a great deal of our traffic consists of returning visitors who are interested in a specific category simply because of the vehicle type they own,” said Trevor Klein, senior vice president of business development for AutoAnything.com. “But now that we have the ability to create a more valuable, engaging experience based on their previous site visits, there’s no reason to serve up static pages. The ecommerce environment is an increasingly competitive field. Omniture Test&Target; helps us stay strategic by taking the guesswork out of our marketing campaigns and deliver relevant content to each of our visitors.”
AutoAnything.com plans to continue segmenting their traffic whereby different types of visitors are served targeted offers based on site activity-providing a more meaningful customer experience. Behavioral targeting remains a key initiative to the company`s plans for continued sales growth.
