360pi and Build.com Prove It’s About More Than Just Price

Curated collections prove winning approach with time-pressed holiday shoppers. 

CHICO, CANovember 3, 2015 – 360pi, the leader in product intelligence, and their customer Build.com, the preeminent online home improvement retailer, today released a joint infographic that highlights the value of assortment and shopping experience to today’s time-pressed shoppers, especially during the craze of the holidays. The infographic showcases Build.com’s curated collections for holiday shoppers and also reflects that many factors beyond just price impact today’s purchasing behavior.

Build.com understands that not everyone has the time, budget, or inclination for a full renovation – especially during the holidays. And yet, everyone wants key rooms – bathroom, kitchen, family room, etc. – to make a great impression with their holiday guests. So, to help, Build.com has pre-assembled a variety of budget-friendly items into curated “holiday room updates” for shoppers with different design sensibilities. The infographic highlights the value of these curated collections to holiday shoppers relative to the big box alternative, including:

  • 5 of 5 sought-after products found vs. only 2 via the big box route;
  • 5 minutes of elapsed shopping time vs. a multiple weekend journey;
  • A stress-free online shopping experience vs. 1,225 gray hairs accumulated in big box aisles; and most importantly,
  • Favorable holiday guest impressions of the rooms updated with Build.com’s curated collections.

“We pride ourselves in providing a concierge service experience, rather than residing as a single purchase outlet. While consumers always want a fair price, many equally value their time and shopping experience including satisfaction with the end result,” stated Danielle Porto Mohn, CMO at Build.com. “We work with 360pi to ensure our products are competitively priced, and now we are also able to deliver curated collections that help shoppers realize their design vision for a room at a fraction of the time and cost of a full renovation.”

“While price continues to be an important factor in any purchase decision, we also recognize there are many others like personal style, uniqueness of assortment, and ease of shopping that are arguably more important with today’s shoppers,” said Jenn Markey, 360pi’s VP Marketing and Product Management.

“That is why we work with our retail clients to ensure they are not only competitively priced, but they also deliver a unique product experience that resonates with their target shoppers.”
