Arlington, VA and Wichita, KS (PRWEB) July 26, 2011
buySAFE, Inc., a leading provider of conversion and customer satisfaction programs for internet retailers and Norris Ecommerce Management, #468 on the IR Top 500 Retailer list and a multi-million dollar online retailer of home furnishings and commercial office furniture at http://www.iFurn.com and over 50 other sites, recently conducted two comprehensive A/B tests of buySAFE. Objective tests were run independently by both Norris Ecommerce Management and by buySAFE and both tests determined that buySAFE materially increased website conversion and sales while also improving the overall customer purchase experience.
Norris Ecommerce Management utilized a split A/B testing methodology to objectively measure the conversion, sales and profit impact of using the buySAFE program. The results were convincing. By utilizing buySAFE, iFurn.com is increasing its website conversion rate by 5.9%. The test was conducted over a multi-week period during May 2011. The results were highly statistically significant with over 130,000 unique visitors and over 2,700 orders included in the test. With buySAFE, iFurn.com saw 1.1 additional sales for every thousand website visitors, resulting in significant increases in sales and profits from using the buySAFE solution. In June 2011, Norris Ecommerce Management conducted a 2nd A/B test with its own testing tools and came to the same conclusion - buySAFE increased website conversion, sales and profitability.
“Staying ahead of the innovation curve in the eCommerce furniture industry while also providing the lowest prices and best customer service has made us very successful,” said Tommy Johnson, marketing director at iFurn.com. “A/B testing proved without a doubt that buySAFE gives us a competitive advantage and supports our goal of giving consumers the best possible shopping experience. We look forward to a long and successful partnership with buySAFE.”
