A design system for brand evolution
To help Thrive Market create a digital experience that increased sign-ups and first-box shipments, our design was built of entirely configurable components. This allowed Thrive Market to not just launch a new website, but rapidly experiment, iterate and perfect it over time.
Build. Rinse. Repeat.
Navigating customers around a catalog of 7,000 products requires asking the right questions. While Thrive already had their quiz down to a science, YML was able to save users an average of 15 minutes of onboarding time by reframing the experience, which has increased the conversion rate by 10%.
“YML has helped with one of our critical goals of upleveling our brand and experience.”
With personalized product features and stories at the heart of the shopping experience, customers get a customized view of the items most relevant to them. By hyper-personalizing the experience, Thrive Market is building deeper relationships with their customer.
Driving dual value with Autoship
In just a few taps, customers can easily edit items, adjust frequency or change the delivery date of an upcoming order directly in the app. This ensures they get a consistent, personalized delivery of all their essentials while providing Thrive a recurring source of revenue — a win-win for everyone.
Information Architecture and User Flow
Combining client research along with our own user research, we created a visual representation of the key messages and trigger points for incentivizing the membership service. This helped both teams easily recognize the moments that matter within the user journey flow.
