Customer success stories

  • The challenge

    • We partnered with one of Europe’s largest luxurious shopping mall chains
    • They had little insights into customer behavior and overall traffic flows between floors and individual stores
    • Several tenants had low store traffic and unsatisfactory performance due to uneven customer traffic between floors
    • It was not clear whether online ad campaigns were reaching target customers
  • The MiNODES Solution


    • We created customer-journey maps: analysis of floor-to-floor conversion and dwell time in different areas of the mall
    • Allowed for a highly tailored voucher campaign to incentivize higher floor visits and subsequent marketing performance measurement


    • Enabled online and mobile retargeting of visitors who visited the mall during marketing campaign periods
  • The Business Impacts

    • 12% increase in traffic to higher floors due to successful marketing campaign
    • Increase in dwell time by 25% on promoted floor
    • Average revenue growth of 10% during the campaign period for tenants on promoted floor
    • 6% increase in returning visitors due to data-driven visitor retargeting
  • The challenge

    • We partnered with an international fast fashion group
    • Their previous sales growth and customer accretion strategies failed, due to lack of customer behavior insights
    • Their advertisement budget was largely wasted on ill-directed promotions failing to reach target customers
  • The MiNODES Solution


    • We analyzed their shoppers’ visits, dwell-time & loyalty
    • Evaluated the performance of offline promotions


    • Identified key customer segments differentiated by their varying degrees of brand loyalty

    • They lacked a global benchmarking platform capable of evaluating the effect of those design changes on visitor behavior
    • They could not define what portion of their advertising budget was being spent on unsuccessful digital campaigns
    • The group’s app only had few downloads and its benefits were communicated neither effectively nor consistently
  • The MiNODES Solution

    • Created an omnichannel retargeting campaign which enabled the group’s retailers to redirect their showroom visitors to various online channels
    • Implementation of online, mobile and in-store digital signage campaigns, which either promoted the app’s use or its download (depending on whether the target customer already has the app installed)
  • The Business Impacts

    • 17% increase in the success of ad campaigns by redefining their reach
    • 18% increase in app downloads and 8% increase in app usage
