Hi Community! Winback emails are pretty standard practice in marketing, and with good reason. They have been proven to boost engagement and bring customers back into the buying cycle. However sometimes I’ll be working with a client who has implemented a winback flow, but they aren’t seeing good results. Why does it work for some businesses, and not for others? The answer is in the details. How to Create an Effective Winback Strategy While a business might be sending out emails that are triggered by inactive accounts, there’s no guarantee that the email will be received, opened, or influence the customer to reengage. Not unless you tailor that email to meet not just your needs, but the needs of the customer. So before you create a generic email with the title “winback,” you first need to identify why the customer stopped engaging and what would persuade them to come back. Identify What Persuades Your Users To identify the why you’ll need to first evaluate your own product and anticip
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
We had a great AMA session with Jacob Sappington @jsappington of Doe Lashes and Katie Krische of Octane AI today where we talked about the benefits of using a shop quiz, how quizzes can help you learn more about your customers, and how quizzes can help your business drive ROI. Check out the video below to hear more from Jacob, and how he determined the Shop Quiz was right strategy to drive email subscribers for Doe Lashes. If you missed the AMA session, we’ll include the recording of it here. There were lots of great questions that the audience asked, like:“What were key things you were looking for when scoping out different quiz partners”“How difficult was it to integrate quizzes with your tech stack when you were getting started?”“What are some examples of best questions to ask for quizzes” Have more questions about how to use a quiz? Share them with us in the comments below!
