Advice from WarpDrive's Director of Product, Brett Turner:
Tip 1: Comparison helps with conversions: Use comparison tables as a way to communicate your product's value.
Compare your product against your competitors or other product offerings in your lineup.
For searches, some of the more common queries customers make in the decision-making process is ‘How does [this brand product] compare to [competing brand product]. 👀
Make it easy for them to find this info so potential buyers feel confident about their purchasing decision.
Tip 2: Test and segment your pages: You don’t want to use the same copy for different audiences. Every audience has different pain points, so tweak your copy and visuals according to their needs.
Here’s a methodology you can try: Treat your offer as your campaign, your page experience (e.g. landing page) as your ad set and the content within that page (headline, copy, images) as your ad. And then test away.

And while PDPs and checkout carts have been endlessly optimized, the search and discovery process is still a bit of a PITA (or pain in the… well, you know what we mean).
But thanks to the rise of generative AI, both platforms and brands are now rolling out the digital red carpet, making our shopping experiences less "needle in a haystack" and more "personal concierge."
