Trending For You

Trending For You can be a great value-driver by promoting your most popular products to exactly the right users. Users are likely to engage with these recommendations because for two reasons: 1) these recommendations are popular with other users (social proof and FOMO) and 2) they're also relevant to this specific user.

Example for Trending For You


Trending For You is one type of recommendation that never goes out of style. It's a way to highlight the 🔥 products that are currently getting a lot of attention on your site, and make sure they find the right users. These recommendations are often showcased via a "Popular for others like you" ribbon on your homepage.

When trending product recommendations aren't personalized, they can feel distracting and clickbaity. However, with Miso this content will be popular and still tailored to users' interests and preferences. You can generate Trending For You recommendations using the User to Trending API. Additional input parameters can be used to tune these recommendations, for example to show what's trending in a certain location.
