Its mission is to support consumers in all of their purchasing needs, while striving for the ultimate customer experiences using modern technology.
The team managing the Trendyol digital marketing channels plays a crucial role in getting the right information out to the right channels in time. They also work on improving effectiveness in dynamic advertising areas by optimizing both the feed management process and supporting technologies. They ensure that Trendyol complies with the requirements on the 30 or more channels they use. Quickly and easily changing and creating feeds feeds, improving the feed exclusion processes, and maintaining accurate and consistent product data across all channels were the top 3 challenges facing the digital marketing team.
Before the introduction of the Productsup Product-to-Consumer (P2C) platform, all seller feeds for each of the social media channels – Facebook, TikTok etc. – had to go through IT. They added the tasks to their sprint plan which meant getting information out to potential customers always took longer than the digital marketing team expected. This not only negatively impacted Trendyol’s digital marketing performance, but it was also not sustainable in the long term, stalling the business’ future growth and expansion plans.
Each marketing channel has its own stringent feed rules and requirements. Adapting product information from more than 200,000 vendors to 30 channels without a powerful platform solution was proving to be a nightmare. Unable to release up-to-date accurate product information adapted to specific channel feed requirements, meant that Trendyol could not live up to customer expectations. They missed out on sales and forgoing new revenue-driving opportunities.
The Productsup P2C platform has brought many advantages to the Trendyol digital marketing team and the business as a whole. The platform gives the team the ability to quickly relay sudden price fluctuations on Trendyol.com to other channels. They use blacklist/whitelist filters to manage which products they display and which they hide. Because they can now create feeds for commercial channels quickly and whenever needed, Trendyol now capitalizes on business opportunities as soon as they present themselves.
Effective reporting and intuitive dashboard visualization within the platform make it easy to ensure that all data exported to external channels meets the highest quality standards. The team receives instant notifications if there are any issues with the data in the feeds. Accurate and consistent information on all channels maximizes returns for the businesses Trendyol represents as well as the customers it serves.
Now independent of the IT department, the digital marketing team are managing all feed management processes and activities themselves. The Productsup P2C platform considerably improved the effectiveness of their feed management in several ways. Import and export times were reduced considerably while changing and adding new feeds transformed into a quick and painless process. Immediate intervention to address errors made Trendyol’s channel management more effective.
