CellarPass Presentation 40511

  1. 1. What is CellarPass?<br />CellarPass is the leading destination to discover, book and share wine experiences across the US.<br />
  2. 2. Audience Questionnaire<br />Who has a direct marketing program?<br />How often are you sending?<br />Who has a wine club?<br />Who does onsite events? And offsite?<br />And who wants to increase their sales?<br />And increase their WC memberships?<br />
  3. 3. The Importance of an Email Address<br />Email addresses are the single-most overlooked company asset in any industry<br />The most-preferred form of communication by consumers<br />The foundation of direct-to-consumer marketing programs<br />Wineries need tools to opt-in to email-based marketing<br />
  4. 4. How to use those email addresses<br />Consumer Communications<br />Upcoming Wine Releases<br />Recent Awards (wine, sustainability, etc)<br />Upcoming Events<br />Onsite<br />Offsite<br />Loyalty Marketing- Consumers can be more powerful than any media-based review<br />
  5. 5. Loyalty Marketing<br />Loyalty marketing programs have been in commerce for many years, but are just starting to be used in the wine business.<br />Basic Benefits of Loyalty Marketing<br />Shift – Acquire new customers<br />Lift – Increase the spending of existing customers<br />Retention – Improve the natural attrition rate of customers<br />Profit Mix – Shift spending to more sales channels (on site purchase to ecommerce) and/or higher margin products…increasing company overall sales production.<br />Although the Loyalty programs have evolved over the years with technology resources made available to us, the foundation pretty much remains the same…to implement any kind of loyalty program you must be able to communicate with your customer. In the past this was Name, Address and Phone number, today it is the almighty email address.<br />
  6. 6. How Do you Acquire Email Addresses?<br />Website Contact Form<br />Online Sales<br />Wine Club Memberships<br />On/Offsite Events<br />Tasting Room Guest Lists<br />Purchased Lists- no longer recommended<br />And now through reservations!<br />

  10. 10. Email Address is the Key Take Away<br />CellarPass requires an email address to make a reservation<br />Consumers receive confirmations<br />“My Account” to view past RSVPs and view/modify upcoming ones.<br />Guest accounts are evergreen- meaning that once they have made a reservation with you, you will always have access to their latest information<br />
