Turn hesitant shoppers into raving fans
Getting shoppers to the first taste is the most important step. But after signing up to your SMS list, they might still need a bit of convincing.
Browse abandonment, cart abandonment, or welcome series automations are all opportunities to educate and nurture customers. To sweeten the deal, offer a sample box or a custom coupon.
Crush your product launch and sales targets
The almost-instantaneous open rates of SMS make it the perfect channel to announce your latest product launch or flash sale.
New flavor or seasonal item? Send a text to your most loyal customers first and give them exclusive early access.
Promote reorders and subscriptions
Increase lifetime value with automated text messages for product reorders and subscriptions.
Set up automated reorder reminders at the appropriate time interval (for example, 25 days after they bought a 30-day supply). Or, integrate Postscript with ReCharge and allow your most valuable customers to skip, add, or change their subscription through text.
Build loyalty with educational content and rewards
Turn a one-time purchase into a daily habit through post-purchase education and loyalty rewards.
Use post-purchase automations to send instructions and recipes. Take it a step further by sending promotions and reminders about your loyalty reward programs over SMS.
