The Retail Email Blog monitors the email marketing campaigns of more than 100 top online retailers. Here are highlights from my inbox this morning:
Williams-Sonoma, 12/14 — Shop Top-Rated Cutlery
I’m still surprised by how few retailers make good use of browse-based and shopping cart abandonment emails, especially during the critical holiday season. When subscribers click on a product in your email and browse your website and don’t buy, they’re giving you an opportunity to help them—by presenting educational content or similar products, related products, cheaper products, more feature-rich products, etc. In this browse-based email, Williams-Sonoma is reacting to me clicking through on recent emails and looking at knives.
