Our Process

Collect

Get to know your customers

When you unsubscribe from a newsletter, they always ask you why.

When you subscribe, no one asks.

Let’s change that together.

OLD WAY

Single use coupon codes

Save on your first purchase, sign up with a different email to unlock this offer again. Generic coupons that get leaked.

Email or Phone number only

An email or phone number alone doesn’t tell you much. You’re left to guess and learn based on their behaviors hoping that they open your emails and click something in them.

One and done

A pop up appears when you land on the page and again sometimes when someone exits.

OUR WAY

Multi use coupon codes

Stand out from the crowd, build an offer that reduces friction and encourages multiple purchases without creating sales cycles.

Multi-question sign ups

Trade increased discounts for relevant data points. The data you collect can be applied to your entire customer base, a discount only to the subscriber.

Multi-touch pop ups

We use multiple popups tailored to the browsing experience to maximize collection of data. On average a visitor sees nearly 2 pop ups before signing up.

Personalize

Talk to your customers

You’ve heard clean data in, clean data out. By asking questions with definitive answers we make the sign up process frictionless and also beneficial for both the brand and the customer. Brands can now send outreach that is tailored to the answers of the customer and the customer is more likely to interact with content personalized for them.

OLD WAY

Single Welcome Series

Everyone gets the same welcome series minus a little bit of A/B testing. Segmentation starts after someone engages with your emails, knowing what is going to land with your customers is pure guessing.

Basic Abandoned Cart

Telling someone that they left someone in their cart and didn’t finish checking out. Follow up with a series of emails and offer a discount code to get them to convert.

Spray and Pray Retargeting

Retarget everyone that added to the cart, everyone that visited the website, everyone that looked at a product multiple times. If they can be retargeted send them all the retargeting, use products that they looked at, hype the features and benefits of the products.

OUR WAY

Tailored Welcome Series

Segment before the first email. Tailor the cadence to things that matter most to the customer, because you asked them. There is no need to guess anymore, A/B test your messaging knowing what matters to your customers.

Tailored Abandoned Cart

Overcome objection while integrating the insights you have as to what matters most to your customers – pick relevant reviews that align with the values of your customers.

Tailored Retargeting

Know when people are looking to purchase, know what matters most to them, and craft messaging that directly relates to them. Retarget people in a manner that allows you to built trust and create a connection with them.

Grow

Increase your revenue

Stop guessing. Seriously, we built our reporting to tell you exactly what ads are performing by data point adding a qualitative measurement to go along with the qualitative sale. So we can tell you which data points are driving the most revenue then use the top earning data point combinations to tell you exactly which sources and UTMs are driving those data combinations. Land and expand without relying only on conversion data. We schedule weekly calls to answer any questions you have about your data as well.

OLD WAY

Follow Conversions

The only metric that is consistent across ecommerce companies is the willingness to blindly follow anything quantitative

Test Everything to Learn

Telling someone that they left someone in their cart and didn’t finish checking out. Follow up with a series of emails and offer a discount code to get them to convert.

Run Consistent Deals

Retarget everyone that added to the cart, everyone that visited the website, everyone that looked at a product multiple times. If they can be retargeted send them all the retargeting, use products that they looked at, hype the features and benefits of the products.

OUR WAY

Understand Conversions

Segment before the first email. Tailor the cadence to things that matter most to the customer, because you asked them. There is no need to guess anymore, A/B test your messaging knowing what matters to your customers.

Start with an understanding

Overcome objection while integrating the insights you have as to what matters most to your customers – pick relevant reviews that align with the values of your customers.

Target only those willing to pay

Know when people are looking to purchase, know what matters most to them, and craft messaging that directly relates to them. Retarget people in a manner that allows you to built trust and create a connection with them.

We'll take care of almost everything

Questions people usually ask:

What is the cost?

We charge $0.50 per data point. We do not charge for collecting an email or phone number. We view the value in the data beyond what you can collect from existing systems. We’ve structured this so that the cost can be shifted from your wasted ad spend to optimized ad spend via data.

What happens if someone doesn’t finish a form?

All the information is passed very step in the form. If someone drops off, the information collected up to that point is passed on to your integration partner. If there was no identifier used (email or phone number) then the information will be stored and connected to the identifier at a later time if they the visitor is using the same device.

What do I do with the data?

Data is a powerful thing and can unlock a lot of different things. Primarily, we see customers using data to create more personalized email flows, higher converting website copy, and of course using our reporting to know exactly which ad audiences and content are producing the best customer from a qualitative and quantitative perspective.

Will I see a drop off in sign ups when I ask multiple questions?

Conventional wisdom says that you would, however in our testing we’ve seen that more than 95% of people that put in their email address finish the form. There are some caveats to this, brand, offer, etc. But we’ve found that people that complete the form convert at 22% without retargeting. Most people don’t mind sharing data with brands that is relevant to their buyer journey as long as it’s not something too intrusive.

Why is a multi use coupon code better than a single use?

Math. For better or worse, we ran the numbers and if you can increase repeat purchases by 7% you actually make more revenue by offering a multi-use discount. It also takes out the friction of someone waiting for a sale or other coupon code. When you remove bias you get a more accurate picture of the time until repeat purchase.

Most notably though it allows someone to try out a new brand by making a small purchase and coming back to make a second purchase soon after without the more common signing up with another email address.

What questions should I ask?

We recommend brands ask between 3-5 questions during sign up. Longer forms tend to create more friction and may not be finished but when someone commits to providing an email address a few taps on a screen is pretty harmless. We follow a pretty straightforward format, questions about type of product interest, what matters most to the customer related to that product, how many do they currently own or how often do they use the product, and when are they looking to buy.

These help us map interest, details for personalization around perceived value, an approximate lifetime value, and a cadence at which to email, text, and or retarget the customer via ads.

Who do you integrate with?
