Sales-Driven Content Search

Clerk.io now support content search

We have now added content to our search engine!

That means that you now can present consumers with relevant content such as blog posts, cms pages, and landing pages right in your search results.

But unlike traditional search engines that only rank content based on the text alone we have evolved our ClerkCore AI to fully understand your stores content in context to your customers shopping patterns!

That means that we present content that not only fit the query but also rank it by how likely a customer is to buy a product based on that content.

This feature is now available to all Clerk.io customers running Clerk.js v2 and our latest extensions.

Sales-Driven Category Search

While our product search has always been fully powered by our AI - giving the best product suggestions given current shopping trends - our category search has been more basic using only a text-based algorithm. 😮

That stops now!

We have just rolled out an improved version of our category search fully powered by our ClerkCore AI! 😎

That means that:

  1. Spell correction is much more intelligent.
  2. Category results are now ranked by both text match and the probability that a consumer will actually buy a product in the given category.

This improvement has already automatically been rolled out to all stores running our search engine instantly delivering a greater shopping experience.

HubSport Audience Integration

Clerk.io Audience now directly integrates with HubSpot.

That means that you now can have Clerk.io sync all your AI-based audiences directly to HubSpot's marketing platform.

Better Data Health Checks

We just launched a simplified version of Data Health.

Simplified data health check.

Data quality is the key to great results with Machine Learning and Data Health automatically keeps track of your data quality.

With this update, it's much easier to get an overview of what's working and what's causing problems.

In the near future, we will launch more tips and better help articles for each issue.

Separate out your Big Spenders and Bargain Hunters

We just launched a new feature to our AI-based Audiences that allows you to target your customers based on whether they love a great deal or they prefer high-end products.

Price sensitivity in Clerk.io Audiences

More importantly, you can start treating your high-end buyers with products you normally would not send out to everybody because of the price point.

Search AI can now decouple compound words

Screen Shot 2019-09-03 at 11.08.43.png

One of the biggest challenges in building a search engine is handling the many ways we humans can spell the same thing.

We humans intuitively know that "art gallery" and "artgallery" is the same thing but such cases can be hard to detect for computers.

We have just released an improved version of our search AI that now can look at longer sentences and better understand the true meaning of a word - even if that word is spelled as several words by a user.

This takes us another step closer to our goal of a smoother shopping experience for customers with less friction. When they search they just find what they are looking for.
