Email Automation Series- Birthday Emails

Birthday Emails

Why You Should Have One

Let’s be honest, everyone loves celebrating their birthday. Even if you say you don’t, you know it feels pretty awesome when someone remembers it. Flowers delivered, a surprise cupcake when you get home, or maybe even some donuts at work are always a nice surprise. As adults, life gets in the way and sometimes we even forget or simply don’t want to acknowledge and tell others that it’s our birthday. The point is, telling someone happy birthday is never a bad thing and offering them a little special gift for their birthday is even better! With high open rates, your message will be read, well received, and your offer probably taken up on. Birthday emails cultivate brand loyalty and are a powerful way to grow your business. Everyone likes the sentimental surprise of a birthday gift, make sure you are giving one to your customers!

Ascent360 integrates with the tools you already use to then push these personalized campaigns to marketing channels such as Facebook, Google, Direct Mail, and any Email Service Provider being used.

Email Automation Series- Anniversary Emails

Anniversary Emails

Every six months or so, I’d receive an email from the beautiful Turks and Caicos resort my husband and I honeymooned at in October 2014, and every time that email came through to my inbox, I’d forward it to him with a “sad face,” and a comment saying, “let’s go back!” The email was sentimental and beautiful. The resort knew we went on our honeymoon there because we took advantage of a special honeymoon package. Finally, a couple months ago we decided to take advantage of that exclusive email offer and go back to our honeymoon spot! The anniversary emails did their job. The resort received a repeat customer and we received an amazing deal. Win-win!
