Hi Community! I’m Omar and I’m excited to share some of my tips and tricks with you all, specifically with utilizing integrations in your flows, which will hopefully save you a lot of time and energy! Realizing our Manual Pain Points in the Customer Journey After talking to a customer of ours and really understanding their process, we noticed they were still doing a lot of work manually. Our customer, Juizs, not only sells Detox Juices, but also provides coaching sessions and other downloadable resources for their clients. When we interviewed them and looked at their process, one thing became clear. They were manually following up with customers in their post purchase journeys by manually sending out follow-up messages with a helpful PDFs or planning personal calls after buying to gain customer insights. Since we already had a good base setup in Klaviyo including browse and cart abandonment, new subscriber flow, new customer thank you flow etc., we decided together with the client tha
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
Hello Community! I’m going to lead us through this conversation through the point of view of an email marketing agency, sharing how to effectively tell your clients the potential issues your account faces if you choose to dismiss this practice, however, this conversation is equally important to those managing their own email marketing strategies too! This topic is specially important as we are in BFCM prep season. Let’s get started! Why You Should List Clean There are several reasons why this practice is important for your account and additional benefits from this habit that I’d like to outline as well. Here are a few: Improve your account stats (open and click rates) By removing unengaged users and lowering the amount of subscribers you send to, your opens and clicks will increase because you’re sending more to users who actively engage with your content Gain a better account health rating This is the rating that inbox agencies give to your account and it greatly depends on t
Hi Community! I’ve recently taken on a few new clients and have been focused on growing their lists with limited starting resources, so I just wanted to share some of my tried and true tactics to help boost that growth spurt! Let’s dive in. Opt-in Opportunities First and foremost, I always tell customers to start at the bottom of the sales funnel and work their way up. This holds true for ads, websites, and even email. For email, I would encourage new clients to make sure they are giving customers every opportunity to opt in. This includes opt-ins during checkout, back-in-stock notifications, and SMS. In my experience, I personally think collecting SMS opt-in right away is a good thing, even if you're not planning on using SMS in the immediate future. SMS requires some more legal hoops to jump through so it takes a little longer to collect those opt-ins, which means if you want to see growth, you’ve got to get started now! Keep Them Hooked Besides Opt-in opportunities, you should uti

Hi Community! I’m sure all of you have experienced the effects of supply chain shortages over the last year. It’s definitely been a challenge to keep retail clients competitively performing when their product is often missing or delayed. Luckily, Klaviyo has some great features that help us combat that. Supply Chain Issues Are Here to Stay - Now What? I have clients who, over the last year, have had a ton of supply and some clients that have had products sitting in container ships off the coast for months. I even have one client who finally received product after waiting months only to find it had a flaw in it and has to be redone - she is currently trying to figure out a way to keep the product in the US to get fixed so that she does not run into any more time delays. In situations like this, it can be hard to push products due to stocking and inventory uncertainty. Alternatives to Product Pushes So how do we combat this? Thankfully, our clients all have some sort of product in stoc
We needed to mass (re)move people from a list without unsubscribing, deleting or suppressing the profiles. For a client of ours we recently ran into an issue where we needed to mass remove various contacts from a list and add them to separate sub/smaller lists.Segmentation was not an option since we needed people to be subscribed to a list and not based on variables that could change. In this specific case it was a custom multilanguage shop with 1 Klaviyo account.An easy way to remove subscribers from a Klaviyo listKlaviyo does not provide an option to delete users from a list without manually removing them one by one. With thousands of people that needed to be removed this was not an option.SolutionUsing the information found in the klaviyo development documentation I've created this as a way to remove contacts from a list by using a CSV file with all email addresses in the header Email.Use case:While having to split up a main list in seperate sub-lists I encountered an issue that we

Hi Community! Bryan here! Excited to share some of my experiences with you concerning data maintenance in your account and how to use Analytics tools and features in Klaviyo to ensure everything is firing correctly. Let’s get into it! Automations Don’t Mean “Set it and forget it” The power of marketing automation has changed the game for so many marketers. It has given back countless hours from having to manually create and send messages, and has allowed brands to provide a more personalized experience for your customers based on specific data passed into Klaviyo. However, many marketers get into trouble, or miss big revenue opportunities, when they think “Automation” equals “set it, and forget it.” Klaviyo is a powerful tool that allows marketers, like you, to quickly collect data from a number of different sources (email/SMS capture, ecommerce transactional, onsite behavior, etc.) and set up robust flows that can deliver continuous revenues without having to spend a lot of time man
Hi everyone! Summer is heating up and so should your email and SMS communications! 🏝️ Of course, throwing marketing spaghetti at the wall is not going to get you the results that you are looking for, so here are a few examples of some strategic marketing efforts I've used that have gotten great success during the summer season and beyond. Let’s Get Social This Summer!With summer in swing, comes a great opportunity to reach your customers in fun ways! A great way to communicate with your previously-purchased customers is to send out emails and SMS communications to get them to submit user-generated content.It can be a fun and interactive way to:1. Get organic-looking content that you could reuse on social media and emails.2. Serves your customers by incentivizing them with fun giveaways. One strategy we’ve used successfully is to tie in certain prompts for your customers to follow. For example, if you sell cosmetics - you could send them a prompt about sharing their makeup looks for a
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
I work for a small ecomm grocer, and I’m weighing ESP options for the business. We don’t have anything in place yet. Currently considering Klaviyo and SendInBlue. I consider Klaviyo the gold standard for small businesses like mine and am leaning in this direction, but it’s difficult to get a clear picture of the unique benefits of Klaviyo relative to SendInBlue. Curious to know if anyone in the community has had experience with both and can share what features Klaviyo has that SendInBlue lacks. Our website and app are custom-built. Thanks!
I was getting frustrated with the lack of ability to segment engagement metrics (opens, clicks etc) based on whether the email was a flow or a campaign - and there is a stark difference between the metrics of these 2 types! So i used zapier to take the Klaviyo event, set a path (in my case, based on naming convention) and push back a metric in Klaviyo titled “Campaign Open” etc. Now i can segment to my hearts content!

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

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.
