BuzzFeed is using Bonsai’s natively-shoppable widgets in tandem with editorial-style content, an approach proven to drive 8 to 10 times the click-through rate of traditional affiliate links.

The SHOP’s Instagram page allows Complex to monetize their network of Instagram accounts totalling 8 million followers by cross-posting between accounts to organically drive engagement of shoppable posts.

Full Size Run experienced a 2-3x higher engagement than non-shoppable episodes and significant improvement to all other key metrics including: subscription, completion, product display page views and add to bag rate

The Complex SHOP showcases new releases, editorial-inspired collections, products curated with the streetwear authority of Complex. This has resulted in a 46% m/m gross merchandise volume growth, and a doubling of monthly site traffic since launch.

Complex enlisted Bonsai to run their shoppable emails as part of the SHOP strategy. These emails now have a 50% above average conversion rate over and provide a reliable stream of weekly revenue.

Your CTO will love us

Built for publishers first. SEO compatibility, ad blocker resistant and editor friendliness are all part of our product DNA. Bonsai can connect to a publisher’s existing commerce systems or stand alone entirely.

“Bonsai’s core platform and existing integrations with top retailers allowed Complex to accelerate the time it took to build, deploy, and manage the Complex SHOP. Because of Bonsai, we saved significant engineering and product management time and have a product in-market with significant revenue potential.”

-Aleksey Baksheyev, Chief Technology Officer at Complex Networks
