The Challenges

Sideshow specializes in creating one-of-a-kind models, making product findability and relevancy incredibly important. Their native platform wasn’t providing the amount of control they desired to merchandise products accordingly. Because their products are especially rare and not mass-produced, they have an elevated need to control messaging around products that are out of stock, waitlisted, coming soon, and on sale. They also expressed the need to create custom landing pages for featured products and flash sales.

The Solutions

Using their own data, Sideshow implemented Searchspring’s boost and sort filters to ensure that the most relevant products show up on search results pages. They make use of Searchspring features such as inline banners to help advertise sales and landing pages for flash sales and special promotions. They also implemented Searchspring’s easy-to-use merchandising and marketing campaigns.
