Email Automation Series – Abandoned Cart Emails

Are you Leaving Money on the Table?

Why You Should Have One

You may do a great job of helping customers along the sales process when they are in your store and ready to purchase, but what about if they are purchasing online? Are you hitting them during the process to make sure you aren’t losing a sale? According to Shopify, 67.45% of all shopping carts become abandoned before the sale ever goes through. These customers are hot leads and ready to act. Sending an abandoned cart email to remind these individuals that their items are still available, offering an incentive to buy,  or giving the feeling that their item will be lost if they don’t act now will help you secure sales that could have otherwise been lost. If you aren’t sending this type of email, you are leaving a lot of potential sales and revenue on the table.

Email Automation Series – Win Back Emails

Pushing the Next Purchase: Win Back Emails

Why You Should Have One

Are you looking for ways to get back your customers who you have not seen in a while? Whether they are missing from visiting your brick & mortar store or you just haven’t seen them on your ecom site in forever – a Win Back Campaign that focuses on the “We Miss You!” message is a great way to wake these customers up and encourage them to re-engage with you. Winning back the attention of a previous customer is far more budget friendly than acquiring someone new. So where do you start? First identify the list. Second, focus on creative. We have found that the look and feel of the email (or email stream) is just as important as the subject line you use to entice your customers to come back. Having done a few of these types of campaigns recently for some of our clients, we have developed a good “stash” of sample emails to spark the creative juices for your email design. Third, create an inciting subject line that will get them to engage. A few suggestions of some tried and true subject lines are below.
