Chow Sang Sang’s existing recommendation algorithms were primitive and less flexible with real-time user behavior. They were looking for a tool that would help optimize onsite recommendations through dynamic algorithms for improved user experience and which would also help improve metric performance.
The team at Insider recommended the use of Smart Recommender along with A/B testing. CSS employed these smart recommendations across pages and A/B tested these for maximum engagement.

Chow Sang Sang observed a 10.5% uplift in conversion rate from the smart recommendations campaigns.
Chow Sang Sang realized that their existing recommendation solutions linking the website and email were primitive and required products to be manually added to the email. They wanted a platform that allowed for greater flexibility and personalized email recommendations.
The account managers at Insider suggested using crowd-sourced recommendations to create a flexible email recommendation solution. Using this strategy, Chow Sang Sang could source recommendations based on the interests displayed by their customers and select all these products to be promoted in the email with just one click.
Chow Sang Sang achieved a conversion rate uplift of more than 23.5% and a 59% uplift in average session duration from these email recommendation campaigns.
Chow Sang Sang will continue optimizing their onsite experience using Insider’s smart recommendations for improved conversion. In addition, the brand will also consider Insider’s Conversion Suite to optimize key conversion metrics and experiences across channels.
Chow Sang Sang is focusing on an omnichannel strategy and will look to expand to SMS, email, WhatsApp, and mobile apps to deliver seamless cross-channel experiences using Insider’s Architect. Together, Insider and Chow Sang Sang will start with the migration of Smart Recommender across newsletter and Architect, while also utilizing the 200+ CRM attributes in segmentation for accurate predictive strategies.
"We were struggling with our recommendations strategy as the recommendation tool we were using before Insider was less flexible and primitive with basic recommendation ability. With Insider’s smart recommender, we were able to leverage AI-powered contextualized recommendations to improve engagement on our product pages. Not only that, we also generated a 10.5% uplift in conversion rates from the smart recommendations campaigns.”
