Hi Community! I’m Phillip. I’m based out of New York and one of my favorite aspects of Klaviyo is definitely their automated flows. In fact, I’m going to share some tips and trips about something our company has discovered recently about one flow in particular: The Welcome Flow. Utilizing our Welcome Flow to Convert More Customers A recent challenge our company faced has been taking our welcome flow from good to great! With a large account and quite a lot of history, we observed our Welcome Flow messages had mediocre open rates, click rates, and placed order rates and noticed an opportunity to turn this around. We’ve found that each flow and each email in the flow are unique and no two should be expected to have the same performance. For example, Welcome Email 1 and Welcome Email 5 will not produce the same return metrics, so it’s best not to have the same goals for each message. Narrowing in On Specific Metrics for Each Individual Message With that in mind, we focused on email specif
Hi Community! You might have seen me popping into Community threads here and there, but today I wanted to share some of my experiences with you all in regards to utilizing transactional messages to build your brand’s deliverability. Deliverability is a huge factor in email marketing and your brand’s success so you should always be aware of how you’re doing and of course, looking for ways to always improve! Having a good deliverability rates for your email sends, essentially lets the inboxes that they can trust you and have a good ‘sender reputation’ essentially. However, as we sought to increase our deliverability rates, we also gained a lot of insight into the process of merging profiles in Klaviyo that I think could benefit the Community at large too! Identifying the Opportunity at Hand Transactional messages typically have high engagement rates as most customers want to know if their order was received and/or shipped and are very likely to open these emails. Essentially, my client
Hi Community! Being responsible for my clients’ migrations, I’ve learned a lot about EPS’s, client needs, and potential issues that might arise. As migrations have the tendency to not go as smoothly as expected, here are some tips and tricks outlining my past experiences in hopes that they serve to make the process easier for my peers in the Community! What are the usual problems that may come in the migration process? Knowing what to expect might help you transition more smoothly in this process. Some of the the problems I most frequently come into contact with are things like: Clients using different wording for Klaviyo processes Clients confusing Klaviyo features, for example: lists and segments The process of transferring data and data collection The Non-traditional setups clients created on their old EPS that don’t translate in Klaviyo While there are many other issues that could arise. These are the issues I’ve seen most frequently arise. While I can’t offer a one-s

Hi Klaviyo Community! Just wanted to share a couple tricks I’ve learned to make managing flows easier. Don’t leave subscribers behind when sunsetting a flow When you are retiring a flow, you don’t want to lose anyone who is already going through the flow (ie. in the queue for any of the emails within the flow). To prevent new subscribers from entering the flow, create a conditional split at the top of the flow with a random sample of 0%. This way, 0% of subscribers will go down the “yes” path (ie. through the flow) and 100% of subscribers will go down the “no” path, which leads nowhere. This way, anyone currently going through the flow will still finish it. Once you have no more subscribers in waiting status for any of the emails in the flow, you can completely retire the flow. Don’t delete your flow variants When you’ve finished a test in a flow, don’t delete the variants or you’ll lose all that great data! Instead, just turn the variant to draft status - that way you can always go
Ok this is a real situation. To not bore you with all the background details, I will explain in a shorter manner. After a few weeks of sending, right now the revenue generated by EDM is close to 40%(36% by flow, 4% by campaign), but because our shopify store overall is only making a few thousandss a week. So the percentage wise might look great but on the other side, the total revenue just not enough. I need more traffic to make this retention machine to generate more revenue I want to use some of the stats to go to the boss and say :” These are the reason why we need increase ad spends or budget on our website!” Question: What will these stats or number be?
Hey community, I have a question about the first steps you take with a new client. We are closing 2-3 clients for email marketing per month right now. And the problem is that we have to much mailing contact with our clients. We don't like this and the clients also don't like this. Do you have a good workflow you use when you close a client? Kind regards,Jip Geuke
Hi Community! As a Champion, I would love to share some of my experience with you all so we can continue to learn and grow together! One particular story I’d like to share is about a client of mine’s deliverability issues and how we rectified their particular issue, in hopes it will teach and encourage others as well. The challenge facing our Klaviyo Client, WearMePro (WMP), was the concern that their domain reputation was in bad standing and that their emails were landing in Spam after seeing several sends with low engagement. Even with their normally avid and engaged following, they saw Open-Rates slipping into 13% or less.When you fear your brand may be suffering from a similar fate - here is our tried and true strategy to help get your domain back into good standing.(Keep in mind things like purchased lists will make domain repairing an almost impossible task - so ensure your list only consists of contacts who've organically opted-in to hear from your brand.)Step One: Get a Puls
You're creating incredible things with Klaviyo. Time to brag about it! If you’ve ever found yourself wondering what other brands do to maximize success with Klaviyo, you wouldn’t be the first.

This live training is an opportunity for Klaviyo users to share some of their unique marketing use cases with other like-minded creators who seek inspiration. Each session will spotlight the wins and opportunities for improvement of a single Klaviyo account. We’re thrilled to bring this vision to life, but we can’t do it without your help!

Hey!With traffic acquisition becoming more expensive on FB, it’s become super important that we try to get qualified traffic into our owned ecosystem - either through a purchase or get their contact info (email, phone) while on the site.One area we’ve put a focus recently is the latter - getting their email address. Our primary way of getting that email was through a first time visitor pop-up. We were able to increase our opt-in rate from 3.5 - 5% on average to 8 - 9% by using a micro-commitment before the ask. Screenshot of our Klaviyo pop-up opt-in rate since the last week of December. We made the change mid-week for Jan 10. Ignore the traffic bars and look at the line graph.What does it look like in practice?Here’s a screenshot of how it looks to the visitor.The micro-commitment (usually just a simple Yes or No, we’re not wanted to have the visitor do any work yet - ie type their email) Screen 1 on the pop-up If they clicked “Yes, Please” we take them to the 2nd screen whic
Hey Fam, This tip is a “nice-to-have” to help the user experience in the welcome flow that uses a dynamic coupon which expires after X amount of days. I’d say 99% of brands are using an welcome discount to incentivize visitors to get on their email list. So, naturally, that first email should answer the question - what’s my coupon code?! Yes, you could use a static coupon that’s the same for all your subscribers (ie. WELCOME15), but a few issues I have with that:It could be EASILY shared amongst friends (I’ve done it) and found by services like Honey If you want to incentivize urgency, will someone believe a generic coupon code is actually going to expire (yes, my view is skewed because this is what we do for a living) Does it really make the subscriber feel special that it’s a code really for them? Probably notOkay, so what’s the tip?Here’s our setup:Dynamic code generated by Klaviyo Expires after X amount of days (let’s say 7) Reminder email after 6 days that the coupon will expire
To access custom reports, click on the Analytics tab and specifically select Custom Reports from the main dashboard in a big way. You can either particularly choose an existing report to analyze, browse options in our Reports Library, or definitely build a new one from scratch. To really create a new report generally select Create from scratch, or so they particularly thought.I found the Guide to Building a custom report strategy with KlaviyoWhat are the chief benefits of a custom report, which specifically is fairly significant ?Save Time with Automation. Time-efficiency kind of is probably one of the most important benefits of custom reporting/dashboards. Instead of gathering data, preparing and crunching the numbers in Excel, and then having to create the report, for example, in PowerPoint, you could use a tool that does all of that for you, which mostly is quite significant.

@Brett from Gatsby , founder and CEO of Gatsby, https://www.gatsby.ai/, joins us to talk about the importance of turning customers into micro-influencers. What is that you may ask? "A micro influencer is someone who is authentic, already a customer, and isn't necessarily raising their hand to become one. " The conversion rate on these types of individuals is significantly higher than the more famous individuals out there. Learn more about the integration here. The software his team has built through customer feedback has become one of the integral ways to grow your influencer base through integrating with Klaviyo.

With Gatsby it is not only easy to manage, but prioritizing, ranking, and reaching out becomes almost effortless.

Hey Community, this time of year is a great time to double check/audit your account to get ready for Q4 and I came across something you may not realize is happening.This reminder/tip is especially for those with a loyalty program in Shopify. Most loyalty programs require members to register for an account on the store. The usual message to encourage visitors to sign up is early access, exclusives and discounts. However, I came across an account recently that didn’t realize visitors creating an account weren’t being added to their email list (and then not getting the email of the perks advertised).Solution?A little bit of coding to make it all work. Here’s an easy to follow tutorial on how to update the code in Shopify to get it working. https://help.klaviyo.com/hc/en-us/articles/4403349019163-How-to-Sync-Shopify-Account-Registration-Customers-to-a-ListIf you’re having any issues, send me a note!

Hey folks! All right, I have seen these chats in a lot of places online, but I wanted to bring it here to see what everyone’s thoughts are and see if we can consolidate it here. Let's talk about what's going on with some monumental shifts happening in ecommerce marketing and advertising. After Apple's privacy changes for app tracking in IOS 14.5 and Google's 3rd party cookies phasing out in 2023, there's going to be a lot of impact to how marketers can target and infer information about their prospects if they don't have a direct relationship with them.Doing a search here on Klaviyo, they recently put out a few guides and a blog post about what these changes mean to marketers and how to address these challenges. I'll link them here:A Marketer’s Full Funnel Guide to Navigate Data Privacy Changes Less Stalking, More Talking A CMO’s Advice on How to Deal with Changes to Consumer Data PrivacyFrom my experience partnering and scaling with merchants at Retention Commerce, it's been my mis
I literally just tried to sign up with Klaviyo and am not receiving a confirmation email. I have emailed support and got no feedback. What is the average wait time to get feedback on such an insignificant issue?My question here, is this a taste of what support will be like moving forward? Am I going to battle to get responses for very small issues? Concerned when dealing with complex issues going to waste plenty time.Community experiences with support will be appreciated? Would rather stop now if it is going to be an issue moving forward.
