CareCloud CDP Tips & Tricks

Drive Conversion and Retention with Drip Campaigns

Drip campaigns are a must-have to grow conversion and retention rates. They motivate the first purchase and can even lead customers to loyalty. Take a tour through drip campaign basics with CareCloud as your guide.

DRIP CAMPAIGNS FUNDAMENTALS

Whether you sell beauty products, fashion, or electronics products, you must patiently motivate potential customers. You can’t push too hard too soon, but gradually introduce the product, service, and brand in an engaging manner. In short, provide an excellent drip campaign. And since the customers signed up for marketing communication, the floor is yours to dazzle them.

A drip campaign is a series of automated messages with a set schedule that gradually familiarizes customers with your brand and products. The end goal is typically a purchase. Yet, seeking only one singular purchase is hardly viable in the current retention-centered market. Besides conversion, drip campaigns increase retention and build a brand reputation if employed correctly. 

TIME TO INTRODUCE YOURSELF

A perfect place to start with drip campaigns is with a welcome/onboarding email, which educates customers about your product. As the customers have just subscribed to your communication, it is best to strike the iron while it’s hot, i.e., while your brand is on their minds.

Build an automation workflow that initiates with a welcome message and, after 5 days, sends a product story, introducing the production background, brand ambassadors, or reviews by reputable magazines. Then, after another period of 2-3 days, send another engaging message, e.g., how your product looks in action. 

Your customers will buy (or strongly consider buying) when the third message arrives. If not, you can send a last “masterstroke” message with a clear CTA packed with a lucrative, time-limited voucher. Make sure to alert customers when the voucher is about to expire: tap into the urgency and FOMO!

PURCHASE IS BUT A BEGINNING 

Another example is the tutorial series, which spreads brand awareness and provides practical advice. If you sell cosmetics, send out tutorials on applying makeup, add a product recommendation to supplement the purchase, or distribute tips on which products work on certain skin types. Customers will feel cared for and understood while you are an authority on the subject, not just a retailer.
