By now, we've all done our fair share of online shopping. And you've surely noticed how helpful relevant product recommendations can be for your online store.
In fact, an impressive 35% of Amazon's revenue is generated by its AI product recommendations engine.
You're probably thinking, "But that's Amazon. There's no way I can use personalized recommendations with AI on my website like they do."
But you can!
With Formidable Forms' WordPress AI plugin, adding an AI product recommendation system to your WordPress website is incredibly easy. And we'll show you how to do it step-by-step in this post.
Let's get started!
Why use AI product recommendations?
It's simple. Customers love personalization.
In fact, customers will pay more for products simply because of personalized product recommendations.
It's also about offering a personalized customer experience, which improves customer satisfaction. With AI-based recommendations and machine learning, your customers get better suggestions in real time. These aren't just random picks but related products based on customer data, viewed product pages, and purchase history.
And that goes into its recommendation strategies to find the exact products they want to add to their shopping cart.
Which means your average order value increases.
So now that we know the "why," let's take a second to discuss the "how" of Artificial Intelligence.
How is AI used for product recommendations?
AI product recommendation engines learn as much as they can about your customers. And at lightning speed.
But here's how they specifically help you and your website:
- Data collection: First, AI learns about customers by collecting their data. This includes what they look at and buy online, the reviews they write, and their likes.
- Pattern recognition: Then, AI looks for patterns in what customers do. For example, it might find that customers who buy one item often buy another item too.
- Prediction: Using these patterns, AI guesses what else customers might like and shows them these ideas.
- Continuous learning: AI doesn’t just stop there. It keeps learning from new information. If a customer doesn’t like a suggestion, AI changes its future recommendations.
So, now that you have a better understanding of AI, how it's used, and how it helps you, let's add it to your WordPress site!
