The Business Need

The pandemic accelerated the pace of digital transformation in retail. With consumers spending more time on digital platforms, online purchases took centre stage. Retail brands, big and small, found it imperative to bolster their presence in the digital world – through marketplaces, social media platforms, and their own digital properties (website and mobile application). The Man Company endeavoured to transform its DTC platform into a new-age, dynamic digital storefront.

The Challenge

Retail Brands faced several challenges, such as – bringing their in-store experience to the digital world, differentiating their marketing strategies from competitors, boosting customer engagement, and revving up growth metrics, to name a few. The Many Company, too, was on the journey to find the piece of this puzzle.

The Approach

To embark on this journey of improvement, The Man Company partnered with Firework, a leading live commerce and omnichannel digital transformation platform. The Man Company leveraged Firework’s live commerce solutions to create immersive experiences on their digital storefront.

Mobile-friendly swipeable experience: The Man Company could now boast of a modern, mobile-friendly ’swipeable experience‘ on its website. Firework brought Tik-tok-style video capability to The Man Company’s website and app to encourage customers to browse and discover the product range through short video carousels.

Supercharged conversion with short, shoppable videos: Firework integrated sophisticated shoppable video technology with short videos to enable The Man Company’s customers to get in-depth product details and transact live while viewing the videos.

Walled garden creator experiences on-site: The Man Company was able to tap into creator-led experiences and engagement on the website/ mobile application through short videos with full control over first-party data.

The Impact

The Man Company was able to become an Early Adopter in the DTC space to integrate shoppable videos on its digital storefront. The company recorded a 2.7X increase in their conversion rate with live commerce.
