    Email Marketing - Roseland Festival Email Case Study Email Marketing - Roseland Festival Email Case Study Document Transcript

    • Roseland Festival Email Case Study2009 we were approached by a young Music & Arts Festival who wanted to increase attendance at their events &maintain & enhance engagement with their core supporters, the Members & Sponsors.The PlanAfter discussing the plans & objectives of the festival in detail, we identified the following plan.The key to achieving the festival’s objectives was an email campaign to maximise response. We identified four keycustomer segments.The identified segments were:  Members - those who have paid a fee to have access to pre-release tickets, plus discounts  Sponsors - local companies and organisations who have sponsored the festival  Previous Festival Attendees - those who have attended the festival, but are not a sponsor or member  Enquirers - those interested in the festival but not one of the aboveExploration of the key messages for each group quickly identified that the same message could often be sent tomore than one segment, thus making the overall project more cost effective.By analysing the existing marketing plans of the festival we were able to outline the following communicationstructure to create an enhanced level of awareness of the festival and encourage booking. 1. Preview booking with 10% saving for Members and Sponsors 2. Reminder of preview booking with 10% saving 3. Booking open to all  Recommend to a friend sent to Members and Sponsors  General booking information sent to Previous Attendees and Enquirers 4. Purchase reminder 5. Events imminent reminder 6. Festival ongoing – extra events infoThe next step was to design an email that would - Reflect the branding of the festival - Explain the range of events on offer - Encourage purchase - Provide space to explain the message of each email© indium online 101865 980 630info@indiumonline.co.uk

    • The final outcome of the planning stage was to add an email after the event to thank everyone and gatherfeedback for next year.The survey results were also segmented and encouraged the uptake of sponsorship and member packages.© indium online 301865 980 630info@indiumonline.co.uk

The planfor 2010 is to build on the success of 2009’s campaign and look into the incorporation of social media to workalongside the email campaign.Plans for Next Year  The email addresses of buyers are generally one of the most interactive lists a company/organisation sends to – if we were able to gather these email addresses from the last two festivals before next year’s sends it would help us to drive more sales.  Look to get conversion tracking set up on the booking website to further improve analysis  More offline data capture to grow the lists© indium online 401865 980 630info@indiumonline.co.uk
