Recommended app to help customers choose the right product

I currently have a comparison guide on my site that shows three items from my best selling product line side by side. I recently added two more variations to that product line, and since keeping my site functional and attractive on mobile devices is critical, having 5 items side by side isn't going to cut it anymore. I would like to configure some kind of quiz-type thing that steps customers through a short series of questions before showing them the item that best matches their needs. I saw in the app store that there are many quiz apps. But it's hard to tell from most of their descriptions if they do what I'm looking for or if they're just fun quizzes. Would love some referrals.

If it's not clear from my description, what I'm looking for is something like this (the product line in question is dog muzzles):

 

app: what is the length of your dog's nose in inches?

customer types in 9

app: how many inches around your dog's head from ear to ear?

customer types in 14

app: do you need to prevent your dog from "snacking" in the yard?

customer types yes

app displays the muzzle product best fitting those answers

 

To be clear, I'm not talking about product variants. Although I could have loaded these into my inventory as variations of one item, it didn't make sense to me to do it that way. So I have five distinct products, each one with color and/or size variants. So the quiz thing is to help the customers understand which product is best for their needs, and then once on the product page they can choose the color/size variants the normal way.

Felt I needed to explain this because most of the apps I found while searching the app store are variant or product option apps.

Hey @Sharon15,

 

Did you end up finding a suitable app for your specific problem?

Hi, no I never did.  Nobody responded with suggestions and searching the app store was the usual nightmare of 5000 similar but not really what I need apps.

 

Anyway, I think I can do what I need with a series of hyperlinked pages although it's not ideal either.

Hey @Sharon15 

 

If I understand, this is something you want embedded directly within your store website, correct? I couldn't find anything that matched exactly what you were looking for either. 

 

This is something I can definitely build for you within the next few days. I did find this (which produces a URL and isn't embedded) that seems like a similar format at least to what you're describing: Product Recommendation Quiz . If you think this format makes sense in terms of what to display to the user and how to select the products that should be matched at the end, let me know!

@drshrey that one totally fits the bill, I think. She could also probably add a scriptTag around it to pop it in an iFrame, couldn't she?

Haven't taken a look at the app exactly, but that's how I'd go about it (no extra app needed).

@Red_Cap_Tom ahh good point, she totally could! I haven't tested the app myself, but sometimes sites may disable iframe use by 3rd-party websites by setting X-Frame-Options (https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/Headers/X-Frame-Options). Hopefully, that's not the case here. And definitely agreed we don't want to build the same thing with the only variant being that it's embedded within the app.

Good point yourself @drshrey, this is really theme-dependent. I'll set up a dev shop with what I think this type of solution can look like later today and see what gives.

@Red_Cap_Tom following up to check if you've had any luck with this? Happy to help or take a look if not!

Hello @Sharon15,

 

Currently, work at a company that offers a free version of almost exactly what you are looking for.

 

They call it Product Quizzes

 

With the quiz, you are able to ask questions and have your visitors select through them until they are recommended a product depending on their answers.

 

Of course, you are in full control of the questions, the answers, the recommended products, and even the entire design. 

 

We have seen wild success with some merchants driving upwards of 150% AOV increase, 81% completion rates, and 85% of people who go through a Product Quiz experience purchase!

 

It is easy to segment, collect real-time data, and share the quiz (it is a URL!). Last but not least you are in complete control with your branding.

  • Free to start
  • Share anywhere with a URL
  • Collect real-time data
  • Completely customizable for your brand
  • No code
