"Swirl offers a slick, lightning-fast shoppable feature on top of all video formats, be it short, or live where it turns casual browsing into a buying spree, like a magic wand that turns viewers into shoppers. Brands should think of it as their secret weapon for killer insights and get ready to rock those campaigns that practically sell themselves. The future isn't just knocking; it's kicking down the door – viral, sharp, and totally unstoppable" says Kaizad Hansotia, CEO at Swirl
By leveraging Swirl's capabilities to convert simple customer video reviews into engaging shoppable videos, businesses significantly enhance the likelihood of converting viewers into customers. Swirl combats challenges such as lower engagement, stagnant sales, and limited reach by adding a shoppable aspect to videos, resulting in higher engagement, boosted sales, increased product discoverability, and higher conversions. With Swirl’s shoppable videos, brands have experienced a +3X increase in revenue, +5X higher engagement, and +50% fewer returns.
“This alignment between Swirl and Cohley marks a significant stride forward. Combining authentic customer reviews with the shoppable element completes a brand’s odyssey for enhanced product discoverability. This strategic move is poised to be a game changer for D2C e-commerce brands.” says Bheshaj Joshi, COO at Swirl
