Mike’s Bikes & Videoly

Mike’s Bikes
Founded in 1964, Mike’s Bikes is the largest independent bike retailer in the US. With twelve stores across California and a host of customer excellence awards, Mike’s Bikes’ total focus on cycling means they embody their mission – to get more people on bikes.
One solution, thousands of videos. The market-leading video management technology for online retailers, enabling automatically embedded, hand-picked product videos to connect seamlessly to online stores. Nobody else makes getting product videos this easy.

How to get more product more efficiently?

Mike’s Bikes knew product videos are a must-have for e-commerce. The rich product information, the high customer engagement rates, and the increased ability to keep customers on-site are just a few of the benefits that come with great video content.

For sporting goods in general, and particularly for a specialized market like cycling, there’s simply no replacement for product video. It’s the best way for online customers to see how a product moves and get a clear understanding of technical features.
The problem for Mike’s Bikes?
How could a small team add thousands of videos, embed them directly to product pages, and make sure there were no broken links and that everything was up-to-date? Staying on top of all this could mean a significant amount of person-hours each week.

What Mike’s Bikes needed was a one-stop solution. One that would take care of everything automatically.
With thousands of products on our site, it was getting hard to manage. Now we have more products with videos, and more products with multiple videos. Before installing Videoly, it took a lot of manual work just to associate one video with one product.

There was a whole untapped market of third-party videos – professional bike reviewers or other product videos that aren’t produced by the vendors themselves. Videoly ensures we procure all of that content.

Seamless integration with Shopify

Another thing we really liked about Videoly is that we can continue to use Shopify, the system that we know. With Videoly, we can still utilize the Shopify backend, we don’t have to go over to another platform. Videoly is a very streamlined integration that works perfectly for our experience.

Automatically embedded videos increase customer engagement

Customer engagement for Mike’s Bikes site has improved significantly since installing Videoly. Product pages with Videoly’s video player have a 33.5% lower exit rate compared to pages without. And the same goes for bounce rate – pages with product videos saw a 12.14% reduction.

It seems customers have enjoyed the chance to learn about products in comprehensive detail as over 40% of viewers watched more than 80% of a video’s length.
What’s most impressive for me is that many of our products have two or three rich content videos. And I didn’t even have to think about getting them. It just happened behind the scenes thanks to Videoly.
