TOMMY HILFIGER A TOP-OF-THE-LINE SHOP INTERNATIONALLY LISTED

An inviting project—even in retrospect. From 2008 to 2011 we managed the roll-out of Tommy Hilfiger’s online shops outside the U.S.A. The main thrust of our efforts during the relaunch and the three years of support activities that followed was aimed at achieving the ideal mix of brand-compatible product presentation, ergonomics, and conversion rate optimization. We had fun.

THE TASK

“We want to have a top-of-the-line shop to expand our international e-commerce.” The task as put to us was that simple (and that difficult at the same time). The vigorously expanding business of fashion brands Tommy Hilfiger and Hilfiger Denim was to take a real leap forward online. We accepted this challenge with alacrity. The objective was to optimize the website in terms of the user’s experience. The focus of our attention encompassed ergonomics, conversion rate optimization, and an approach to product presentation in the Web shop that was brand-compatible, appealed to the emotions, and emphasized value to the customer. External sales drivers such as e-mail marketing and display campaigns also were considered during the design phase to ensure that the Web shop enjoyed lasting success.

CHALLENGES

When a large team, various international decision-makers at the client’s end, a new provider of outsourcing services (Netrada), a use lab company (Sir Value), and some other agency are all onboard for such a project, the major challenge is to coordinate the project’s every step among all of the various parties. And so the ensuing time differences, regular consultation marathons, multilingual telephone conferences, thousands, if not more, of e-mail messages across the big pond, and large meetings in Amsterdam and Hamburg were a matter of course. The end result that was achieved was stunning.
