About Virgin

Virgin Megastore, a global entertainment brand, is the leading retail destination in the MENA and North Africa region, with 41 stores in 9 markets. Since its inception, Virgin Megastore has aimed to expand its product offerings to meet the region’s growing trends and expectations. With its unique shopping experience, it caters to trendsetters and technophiles.

Why Insider?

Designing and delivering a unique and constantly evolving omnichannel shopping experience for customers is challenging for retailers. Brands must meticulously manage the performance of physical and online stores, plus a range of value-driven supporting channels and services to deliver a brand experience that consistently surprises and delights an increasingly diverse customer base. Insider’s platform allowed Virgin Megastore to unify its online and offline data and then leverage it to deliver personalized messages across 12+ channels—an advanced level of native channel support not offered by any other vendor.


Gaining a 360-degree customer view with Insider’s actionable Customer Data Platform

The challenge

Virgin wanted to deliver a consistent brand experience across all channels and was looking for a tech partner that could unify both its online and offline data into a single platform. Virgin Megastore needed an actionable CDP; one that could not only unify its customer data but activate that data to drive results.

The solution

Insider’s industry-leading Customer Data Platform is just what Virgin Megastore needed. By integrating offline data with online data, it could gain a 360-degree view of every single customer to better understand their specific wants, needs, and preferences. Moreover, Insider unified all of this data into a single and easy-to-use interface, making customer data more actionable than ever before.

Using personalized Web Push notifications to increase CVR by 350%

The challenge

With data now unified into a single platform, Virgin Megastore was looking for ways to improve its key metrics and drive better results on its website. It wanted to use the data it had collected to deliver personalized experiences for each customer that would engage them and encourage them to convert.

The solution

Insider’s Web Push capability allowed Virgin Megastore to engage its audience with consistent, timely, and relevant messaging. With 120+ ready-made attributes to segment users (including traits, behaviors, preferences, and more), Insider empowered Virgin Megastore’s marketing team to quickly build and launch new, expertly segmented Web Push campaigns to highly targeted audiences.

“Insider has enabled us to implement ideas quickly and effectively which is essential to our promise of delivering an interactive and responsive brand experience.

Driving purchase decisions with Social Proof to increase CVR by 15.3%

The challenge

Virgin Megastore wanted to reduce the number of people who frequently visited product detail pages but didn’t add items to their cart. They needed a solution to motivate these hesitant shoppers to make a purchase, rather than click off the site.

The solution

Insider recommended using Social Proof, a conversion-boosting feature that displays real-time behavioral data from other customers on product detail pages. Social Proof highlights how many people have specific items in their basket, are looking at an item, or have previously purchased. This strategy helped emphasize the popularity of products, encouraging potential buyers to purchase based on the influence of the crowd.

The solution

Insider’s Smart Survey capability proved a valuable tool for Virgin Megastore to gain quick insights into online customer behavior. The brand used one of Insider’s ready-made and expert-approved survey templates to launch a pop-up survey on-site in minutes, encouraging customers to share their opinions on the user experience. Virgin Megastore then used this information to improve areas of the site in line with user feedback.
