How would you organize the Tees?

  1. Based on best selling

    0 vote(s)
    0.0%
  2. Based on subcategory

    You have 100 T shirts split up into 8 subcategories. Someone clicks on "T-shirts" and is displayed all shirts from all categories. Would you:

    A. Display all shirts organized by best selling.

    B. Display all shirts organized by subcategory.

    Why?

    (No, you do not get bonus points for split testing the damn thing. =p)

    I know this wasn't an option, but what I would do is try and do a row of best selling, and then underneath break it down by categories.

    If that wasn't an option, I would list the best selling. As long as there is a reason they are the best selling.

    Or actually list by category, and then when they click on the category, sort by best selling. If those are options. Honestly split testing is the answer. Sorry.

    Definitely planning on split testing, I just have no idea what the results will be. I'm looking for an opinion on an interesting question with lots of variables. If you assume the prime sidebar space is taken by "people who bought x also bought y" and the like, you're basically testing good design/simple organization vs. proven sellers that may look jumbled together to see which has a greater effect on sales.

    If you add new products often though, there's a chance they may get swept under the carpet by your longstanding products. Ever notice how "most popular" blog posts rarely change?
