- Personalize experiences: Tailor product catalogs, styles and themes, copy, marketing efforts and ad campaigns to be more relevant and inviting to keep shoppers coming back.
- Improve marketing strategy: Monitor the impact of targeted campaigns and effectively allocate media spend. Uncover hidden data insights and take action via Datonics comprehensive dataset to maximize ROI.
“Better understanding of customer segments helps inform product development, changes to the product catalog, and UI/UX styles and themes,” said Jachin Scott, Head of Data Services at Sellry. “Audience Insights provides a head start in developing customer segments and personas which leads to more personalized marketing outreach.”

“This year has been especially tough for retail, and many merchants have been reinforced in their decision to move to ecommerce as a primary channel. Applying data to ecommerce strategies is a next important step to helping merchants succeed now and into the future,” said Michael Benedek, CEO, Datonics. “We are thrilled to be working with Shopify and bringing our rich insights to merchants across North America and helping them through this period and beyond.”
“Our Audience Insights app was developed remotely during the COVID pandemic, giving us palpable understanding into the challenges that merchants are facing. We designed it with that in mind and to help solve for the uncertainties of this period,” said Donna Fintzi, Product Lead, Datonics.
Audience Insights works best for stores with 15,000+ U.S. and Canadian monthly unique visitors.
The Audience Insights app is the first in a suite of Shopify apps from Datonics that will be released throughout 2020 and 2021 designed to help merchants increase their revenue through a better understanding of their shoppers.
