With the help of Dashly experts and tools, “He&She” sex-shop succeeded to:
- Set up consistent interaction with customers.

About the client
The “He&She” sex shop has been on the market for 30 years. In these years, the company opened 30 local stores and an online shop, consequently developing the business. Before we came to “He&She, ” the purchase process looked like this: you fill your cart, place an order, and then a manager contacts you for confirmation and details.
Business segments: B2C
Sales channels: website, branches
Monthly traffic: 120 000 visits
Dashly tools: pop-ups, a live chat and a chatbot, a banner for a mobile version of the website
Project duration with Dashly team: 2 months
The issue — non-targeted traffic
The client came to us with a lack of customer engagement on each sales funnel step and a low conversion rate into a purchase. So the “He&She” team looked for tools to help their visitors find products they need, lead them through the whole buying process, and encourage buying more.
The company planned to outsource this task, not to hire new staff. And the choice fell on the Dashly team. The plan was to:
- Analyze a customer journey map and the purchase funnel on the website;
- Create a communication strategy and a few hypotheses based on this strategy;
- Tests various tools and scenarios to pick up only those that prove helpful.
Dashly implementation team operates quickly, saving clients money and bringing extra revenue with the same traffic.
To turn more visitors into customers, together with the “He&She” team, we decided to:
- set up Dashly tools for lead generation;
- launch order conversion strategies;
- attract more blog subscribers for further nurturing with relevant content.
Tools we used to increase conversion rate into order
At the very beginning, we made a map of possible strategies, set up website visitors data tracking, and launched A/B tests to find out the best options.
+3% in revenue with pop-up promo codes and lead capture forms
To understand which offer encourages visitors to leave their emails better, we launched A/B pop-up testing. One pop-up message offered visitors a discount, another one offered a gift. In both cases, visitors got a promo code for purchase in the shop.
Pop-ups order conversion rate from A/B testing in the 1st month:
At first sight, a discount pop-up turned out to be more effective. However, visitors were more willing to leave emails in gift pop-ups. It was also important for lead capturing. So we decided to watch.
Pop-up conversion rate from A/B testing for three months:
A gift pop-up gave us three times more responses and order conversions in three months. 3.111 visitors left their emails. A purchase conversion rate for those who left their email reached 9.74%
As a result of A/B testing, a gift pop-up is still active on the website.
+11% revenue in a month with a timer pop-up message
For visitors who abandoned carts, we launched a timer pop-up to encourage them to finish a purchase. When visitors come back to the website, the pop-up offers them to place an order in 30 minutes and get a discount. If a visitor agrees, the timer starts.
As a result, 410 visitors reacted to the pop-up and activated the promo code in the cart.
We saw a minor outflow, but the majority who reacted to the pop-up finished their purchase. The timer pop-up brought +11% revenue in a month.
+2,5% revenue in a month with popular products pop-ups and a chatbot
When a customer was in a certain catalog section, we offered them a popular product in this section. To understand how this tool might affect the product choice, we started A/B testing.
We launched two strategies:
- Half of the visitors saw a popular product in a chatbot;
- Another half saw a popular product in a pop-up.
A/B testing showed that website visitors preferred to follow the link sent by a chatbot.
A/B test conversion per month:
+3,5% revenue per month with a pop-up message with additional products
We set up complimentary products pop-up to increase the average check in the shop. When customers add something to a cart, we offer them some other products that might come in handy.
Around 10% of visitors clicked on recommended options. 33% made an order. Complementary products pop-up brought +3.5% revenue in a month.
690 new leads in a month with a qualifying chatbot
Before integrating Dashly, “He&She” had a Jivo live chat, which failed to solve a few crucial problems. It didn’t give detailed dialogs analytics and didn’t allow setting up complicated scripts. The Dashly team set up a live chat and chatbot that solved these problems.
The chatbot allowed us to reduce operators’ workload and qualify leads. The chatbot starts a conversation and asks a user qualifying questions. Then it automatically fills in the lead form. It helps to save operators time. Besides, the chatbot can recommend some products and answer FAQ.
A chatbot starts a conversation when potential customers visit a site for the first time:
This solution also helps increase customers’ loyalty. With a chatbot, a user gets answers to their questions here and now, even if all operators are busy or don’t work at all. Dashly chatbot collected 690 leads in a month, and only 107 requests were routed to operators.
Mainly the chatbot routes a customer request to operators, but with the correct setup, some issues can be solved without operators. For example, the chatbot can answer questions about delivery methods and help to find website sections.
Dashly chatbot can sell without the operators and increase your company’s revenue.

Draw attention to the blog
Our client has a “Sexopedia” section on their website. It has a separate domain name, and it decreases the blog’s traffic significantly. To draw more attention to “Sexopedia” we set up a pop-up and launched A/B testing of the pop-up’s design and location. The offer in both tools was the same.
Pop-ups with the transition to the blog A/B testing.
Pop-ups A in the center:
Pop-ups B on the side:
Visitors didn’t have to make an order to see the pop-up. We offered them to read articles relevant to the last item’s category they looked through.
A blog transition pop-ups conversion of A/B testing:
The conversion rate of blog visits reached 13.53%. In addition, 171 users went to the website blog. The side pop-up added 7.99% to the conversion rate of 25 people. As a result of A/B testing, the side pop-up was turned off.
While working on this project, the Dashly team set up lead generation and launched strategies that the e-store keeps using. These tools bring approximately 20% of extra revenue a month.
|Tool||Approximate revenue share* of one tool in a month|
|Pop-up messages with promo codes for leads capture||3%|
|Pop-up messages with a timer||11%|
|A live chat and pop-up messages with popular products||2,50%|
|Pop-up messages with additional products||3,50%|
|20% Approximate revenue share of all Dashly tools|
