Goedeker’s Reaps Immediate and Dramatic Improvement in Site Search Conversions with Hawk Search

Goedeker’s, one of America’s largest independent retailers of discount appliances, home furniture, and mattresses, experienced an immediate increase in site searches due to the implementation of Hawk Search, a technology that Thanx Media resells. Hawk Search’s robust merchandising workbench enables Goedeker’s merchandising team to customize search results without the need for IT intervention.

Goedeker’s chose Hawk Search because they were confident the robust solution would show immediate results in meeting their main goals of:

  • Enriching the customer experience
  • Increasing site search conversions
  • Improving usability
  • Providing more targeted search results
  • Boosting search results relevancy

According to Matt Davids, Director of SEO for Goedeker’s, a desire to improve the customer experience and remove the merchandising obstacles associated with the existing site search solution were the main drivers behind the search for a new platform. “Over 95% of our sales come through our website,” explained Davids. “We wanted to make it easier for our customers to search for products and quickly find exactly what they need. Goedeker’s prefers Hawk Search because of the ease of implementation and highly relevant out-of-the-box results.”

The day after implementation, Goedeker’s reported a dramatic 30% increase in the use of the site search feature along with a 25% increase in conversions: a trend which continues. The flexible and scalable solution powers Goedeker’s Ecommerce site search and category navigation.

“The Goedeker’s story is a great example of how implementing a site search solution can improve the customer experience and dramatically increase conversions,” said Paul Matker, Thanx Media CEO.

A.M. Leonard Implementation of Thanx Media’s Site Search Solution, Hawk Search, Enhances Customer Usability

A.M. Leonard, Inc., a leading provider of Horticultural Tools and Supplies, has seen a steady growth in site commerce due to the implementation of Hawk Search, technology that Thanx Media resells. The scalable and flexible software solution is used to power A.M. Leonard’s Ecommerce site search to improve overall customer experience.

“There are two ways to increase online revenue,” explained Neil Roble, Director of Marketing for A.M. Leonard. “You can either drive more traffic or you can do more with the traffic you already have. Our focus is on providing a better customer experience and we know sales will increase if we help people find the right products faster.”

Roble partnered with Thanx Media prior to joining A.M. Leonard. “I knew from previous engagements with Thanx Media,” continued Roble, “that the team is easy to work with, knowledgeable, and forward thinking. This made us confident that we’d see dramatic results by using their site search services. After the recent agreement was finalized, the Thanx Media team completed the implementation in less than a month. ”

A.M. Leonard experienced positive results immediately and within that first month reported an increase of $2.00 per visitor who used the site search feature. They were also pleased to see an increase in conversion rates during a time of year in which conversion rates typically decline for them.

“We have a great selection of products,” continued Roble, “which can be both awesome and intimidating. Before implementing Hawk Search it was a challenge for our customers to figure out which product was best for them. Now they can easily narrow their results based on things like brand, technical capability, and price.”

“We look forward to seeing the numbers grow even more after A.M. Leonard implements the faceted navigation experience site wide,” said Paul Matker, Thanx Media CEO.
