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’re excited to announce improvements to adding past profiles in Flows! Add Past Profiles (formerly known as “Backpopulation”) allows you to queue people for flow actions retroactively. It’s most commonly used when you set a new flow live but want to queue contacts that would have qualified had the flow existed earlier. Adding past profiles ensures that you hit every eligible past contact with the right message, at the right point in time. What’s NewBackpopulation is now called “Add Past Profiles” to clearly reflect functionality and eliminate confusion. You’ll see an “Add Past Profiles” button in the top right of the flow builder While the functionality for adding past profiles (or backpopulating) remains the same, you’ll now see a clearer set of options for how profiles will be added to the flow. This makes it easier to confidently add past profiles into your flow Clearer distinctions between what makes a past profile eligible for this function along with where they will be added
In Part 1 of this series, “Why you should clean your email list right after the holidays”, we shared a couple of tactics to use during the holidays to effectively identify unengaged email subscribers from the increased send volumes during BFCM and December. If you missed it, make sure to check it out . In part 2, we want to explore alternative ways you can leverage segments of unengaged or even unsubscribed contacts identified during the holidays to market your products and services. Depending on your business, your engaged and unengaged segment definitions may differ. However, some segments we commonly look at after the holidays include: Email engagement: 90-day email open, 0-6 month purchase 180-day email open, 0-6 month purchase 365-day email open, 0-6 month purchase Non-opener, 0-6 month purchase Non-opener, no purchase Unsubscribed Website engagement 90-day active on site, 0-6 month purchase +90-day active on site, +6 month purchase +90-day active on site, no pur

Hi Klaviyo community! Being able to use Klaviyo as your CDP (Customer Data Platform) is one of the many things that sets it apart from the other email and SMS solutions on the market. Why? Because it means you can have one source of truth for all your customer data. When you have each step of your customers’ journey in one platform, it makes it easier to run your business, deliver a premium customer experience, and leverage your data together to make the right decisions and grow your sales year over year. But what does it mean to use Klaviyo as a CDP? To me, it means Klaviyo is THE place I want all my data to sync to for three reasons: Your data is more useful in Klaviyo than anywhere else. The user experience is simple to understand even as your data grows. The platform is easy to build on, making it simple to sync your data to and from Klaviyo. Today, I’m going to explore how you can leverage this third point, especially with the help of webhooks. But first, what are webhooks?

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! Tim here. Email marketing as a type of combat It’s true that in war and marketing, a multi-pronged approach is most effective. You don’t want to be physically attacking your audience obviously, but you do want to make sure that you’re covering all of your bases and engaging with them at every relevant opportunity in a marketing sense. A thorough engagement strategy will encourage your customers to stay engaged and hopefully make you the first company that comes to mind when they’re looking to purchase. How to retain your customers One of the biggest retention problems I see with my clients is that they often lose track of their customers once they’ve entered the funnel. It's so much easier to retain a customer that’s regularly receiving marketing or engaging with your brand than to try to win back a passive customer. It’s imperative to keep track of those customers and engaging with them consistently is key. This strategy is referred to as Lifecycle Marketing. As the n
How to create an effective welcome flowInspiration
Hi Community! I’m excited to share with you all today on how to take your welcome flow to the next level! One of the most important email flows you can create for your brand is the welcome flow. (Okay, the abandoned cart is right up there, as well, but still!) Think of it like the magic flying carpet of emails that is there to guide them along the wonderful path of purchasing with your brand. If you're currently sending just a single welcome/coupon email in your flow.... and then crickets after that - you're leaving a huge gap in your customer journey! Your welcome flow should be all about turning your brand-new prospect into a best friend. In this article, I'm going to break down the steps we take when building an effective welcome flow of emails. Understanding Your Ideal Customer This step is going to be either a fun one or put you on the struggle bus, but truly understanding what your ideal customer wants, hates, and feels is vital to a successful welcome flow. I highly recommend ta
