Summary of the session
The webinar featured Sonil and Rohan from VWO, experts in Conversion Rate Optimization (CRO). They discussed the power and potential of ‘feature flags’ in CRO, emphasizing the benefits of buying a ready-made product over building one from scratch. They highlighted the efficiency and ease of management that comes with purchasing a product that caters to all needs, reducing the burden on developers and product managers. Sonal then demonstrated the VWO platform, explaining how it supports multiple languages and environments, and how it uses API calls for fast, efficient service.
The webinar concluded with an interactive Q&A session, providing attendees with a comprehensive understanding of feature rollouts and their benefits.
Top questions asked by the audience
Can you give me an example of how an e-commerce company uses a feature rollout in the organization?- by DanielHi, Daniel. Thank you for that question. Of course. I think, primarily, you want to understand how exactly can we launch those features using you know, the feature role adoption. So it's like stage ro ...llouts that are used. Alright? For example, let's say there's an e-commerce store that has a big sale that they're planning in the coming months. And they wanna try out a situation where maybe to a certain segment of users, they provide free delivery up to, let's say, 2 miles than to a different segment of users. They like to provide delivery at half cost. Okay. But they're also reducing the prices. Of their products to a certain extent there. So whenever there are variable natures involved, right when it comes to dynamic pricing, when it comes to overhead costs, they can play around with these values and accordingly figure out which one works best for their users. So are they more inclined to purchase if there are, lower delivery charges, or are they more inclined to purchase? Maybe if they're they're offering free one-day delivery, or maybe one-day delivery with an extra overhead cost. So that's where these staged rollouts can come into play. I hope that answers your question.
Are VWO's feature toggle and feature flags the same thing?- by MarthaPrimarily, they are the same thing. So they call feature flags. They are called feature toggles. You can call them either way. And it's based the reason behind that is like, you know, it's like those ...switches that you get at home. They turn the light on and off. So it's that easy. So you're basically either clicking on the on option or the off option like my colleagues have shown that you can easily switch it on and off. That's why it's called the beach at toggling option as well.
