The Challenge: Engage and Convert Gen Z Consumers — And Their Parents! 


In October 2021, florence by mills saw a disconnect between the person transacting on their website and the end-user of the product. Oftentimes, it was a parent or family member buying products for a younger relative instead of someone purchasing for themselves.

They presented this challenge to top Gen Z agency electrIQ marketing, who decided to introduce a clear product recommendation path via a quiz to guide both the end consumer and the gift-purchaser throughout their shopping journey. 

“Before Octane AI, florence by mills used a custom solution that didn’t allow them to track pivotal analytics such as conversion rate, drop-off rate per question, what product recommendations generated the highest AOV, and other key performance indicators — which makes it virtually impossible to continually improve experiences."

The Solution: Personalize their Website, Email and SMS With a Quiz 


There are two words that brands should pay attention to this year: ecommerce personalization! And that usually starts with a quiz…

To address florence by mills’ distinct buyer personas, electrIQ created a multi-purpose, thoughtfully-designed quiz that takes less than 30 seconds for customers to complete!

With a wide range of products in skincare, makeup, and hair, it can be overwhelming for customers to find the right product they are looking for, especially when shopping for someone else. By collecting customers' preferences and gauging their intention through the quiz, florence was able to recommend the right products for each customer, which led to a 2x increase in site conversion rate!




Using the Octane AI and Klaviyo integration, electrIQ was able to sync all quiz answers to Klaviyo for deep segmentation and personalization of florence’s email and SMS channels

For instance, when site visitors take the quiz and provide an opt-in – but don’t convert right away – they are immediately entered into a post-quiz flow nurturing them to convert on the recommended products.

And it doesn’t stop there. 

With Octane AI’s recently released Klaviyo 2.0 integration, florence by mills can now also save the quiz results URL and continually share that with quiz-takers across multiple marketing channels. The updated integration has also enabled campaigns to be segmented around quiz responses, ensuring the recipient of the communication is receiving relevant, personalized messaging that will resonate with them whether they are Gen Z, Gen X or millennial.

- Brandon Amoroso, Founder and CEO of electrIQ marketing
