Meet Harsha, the D2C Lead at Deconstruct

Harsha Sinha, Deconstruct's D2C Lead, spearheads the website, marketing, and technical aspects of the brand. With a dedicated team covering development, marketing, and customer experience, Harsha aims to enhance key metrics such as sessions, conversion rates, average order value (AOV), and customer lifetime value (LTV).

The Challenge: Elevating Repeat Purchases

Deconstruct noticed a common challenge – a substantial percentage of their website traffic was first-time visitors. Harsha's objective was to boost the repeat purchase rate and foster brand loyalty by tailoring offers based on individual user behaviour.

We worked with a CRO agency before. And then Mason came along. we saw that a lot of people were coming on the website, but they were abandoning the Carts. Which is why the CVR, the Conversion Rate was kind of not as high as the number of sessions that we were getting. I mean, it was not proportional, the increase in the sessions and increase in the CVR.

Leveraging Mason's AI Shopping Engine

To address the personalization challenge, Deconstruct turned to Mason's AI shopping engine. By leveraging Mason's capabilities, the brand sought to create tailored offers, improve conversion rates, and establish a loyal customer base.

Implementation and Initial Observations

Post-integration of Mason's AI shopping engine in August, Deconstruct concentrated on refining the conversion rate by minimizing abandoned carts. Initial findings showed a significant drop in abandoned carts, increased conversion rates for Mason-driven orders, and an uptick in AOV.

What I have noticed is that as we started working with Mason since August. And if I just looked at the data, the conversion rate for orders that came through Mason has been much higher than the overall CVR. The AOV has been much higher.

Earlier we were missing to capture on the website saying that, hey, here's a 5% off. This is what you checked last time. Get another discount here and all of that. And then with the timer, that's where Mason has helped us. And it's there in the results to see.
