  • Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation is gaining global market share with an email marketing program that has helped boost traffic on the company’s Website by more than 30 percent in the past year. Designed and powered by global email marketing and digital marketing provider ExactTarget, Milwaukee Electric Tool’s Heavy Duty News emails feature new product information, how-to videos and special email-only offers.   “We continue to break site traffic records following every email campaign,” said Vickie Chiappetti, e-marketing project manager at Milwaukee Electric Tool. “Email provides us a vehicle to interact with customers online and has quickly become one of the company’s top priorities for user acquisition.” The company, which sells its power tools and accessories worldwide through full-line tool authorized distributors, home centers and hardware stores, relies on ExactTarget’s services team to design and optimize email content for its growing subscriber list which exceeds six figures. “ExactTarget’s design team provides us a seamless solution to produce top quality emails without having additional staff onsite,” Chiappetti said.  “They’ve become an extension of our team and are in part why we can point to the success we’ve had to date.”

  • Combining email with web analytics for intelligent remarketing is all the rage these days. Yes, it’s been around for a while, but people are just now figuring it out, and when they do figure it out, they are seeing a huge uptick in the amount of sales driven from these emails – all from what would potentially be a lost customer. SkyMall is an example of a client that integrates their email campaign with data from Coremetrics. If you’ve ever flown on a plane you know who SkyMall is, but in addition to orders from catalogs, they do a large amount of business on the web as well as over the phone. SkyMall has spent a lot of time understanding buying patterns within their customer base and they constructed a truly intelligent remarketing campaign: Daily, Coremetrics provides a list of individuals who are registered to receive email and left the website with one or more products in their shopping cart.SkyMall waits 2-3 days before sending a remarketing email because what they’ve found is that many people browse online and then pick up the phone and call in their order. In the 2-3 days that they are waiting, they have automated the process of comparing the list from Coremetrics against their phone order data to remove anyone who has purchased. Finally, they send an email trying to reengage the potential buyer. They often change up the call to action to see what works best. Sometimes its just a reminder that they have items left in the cart, sometimes they do a discounted shipping offer, and sometimes they even offer up a phone number for the individual to call in and get assistance. No one approach works for any one company – you’ve got to get creative.

  • About Mike’s Car WashOpened in 1948 in Fort Wayne, grown to 34 locations. (28 in Indiana and 6 in Ohio)Family-owned and operated500 employeesEmail Marketing Campaign Drives 60% Increase in Fathers Day Gift SalesUsing email marketing software from ExactTarget, Mike’s Car Wash generated a 60% increase in online purchase of Father’s Day car wash book sales over 2008Current goal is focused on expanding the email subscriber database and using this database to execute targeted one-to-one direct marketing promotions of car wash book sales for events like Christmas, Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, etc.Mike’s Email Subscriber Acquisition StrategyMike’s Car Wash ran its “Talk to Mike’s” survey promotion for approximately 30 days at all 36 of our Indiana and Ohio locations. During that time, approximately 400,000 invitations to take our survey were distributed on receipts. Out of the 400,000 Mike’s acquired 37,907 unique, usable addresses. Only allowed one free wash per email address so repeat customers were not able to receive multiple free washes. The promotion we ran was fairly complex. Mike’s elected to give a free wash to each customer who completed the survey with the extra condition that the free wash would mirror whichever wash service the customer had purchased (Express, Choice or Works). This meant that Mike’s had 3 different emails that could be sent via triggered sends depending on the type of wash the customer had purchased. Another condition of the promo was that each wash coupon code had to be unique.  Mike’s accomplished issuing a unique code using ET’s live offer functionality which allowed them to create a barcode image with a unique code automatically at the time the email was sent. The codes used in the emails were pulled from a dataset that Mike’s uploaded into ET’s system.    So that Mike’s could send the customer the correct type of wash, Mike’s required the customer to provide their “Sale ID” which is a unique identifier in Mike’s POS system database. Using the Sale ID Mike’s was able to pull their sale information from the POS. Once Mike’s had that data, they used the ET web services API to trigger the correct email. Checking the Sale Id also allowed Mike’s to ensure that the individual taking the survey was in fact a customer and that they had not used the Sale ID to complete the survey before.
  • The Taco John’s program launched in early July and it’s on track to meeting the goals that were set for the program.  In the first month, Taco John’s signed up over 14,000 new members for Potato Olés® Maniacs and the growth rate continues to be on track.  In addition to the email program we also have set up social media platforms on Facebook (www.facebook.com/tjmaniacs) and Twitter (www.twitter.com/tjmaniacs) to give our Maniacs more ways to talk to Taco John’s and importantly for Taco John’s to have an on-going dialogue with them.

  • Pier 1 Imports goes mobilePier 1 Imports is partnering with Barnes &amp; Noble for an SMS sweepstakes as part of its efforts to reach a younger demographic.The retail giant has deployed in-store mobile calls-to-action -- signage next to the prize, a Papasan chair -- in 100 Barnes &amp; Noble bookstores near college campuses. Consumers who text in receive a text message confirming their registration in the sweepstakes and asking them to opt-in to receive promotional emails from Pier 1 Imports.The Pier 1 Imports SMS sweepstakes campaign started July 15 and is running through Sept. 30.The campaign is keyword-specific -- with a unique keyword for each store -- so Pier 1 can identify from which store each consumer texts in.The call-to-action asks consumers to text a keyword with their email address to Pier 1&apos;s short code to enter to win the Papasan chair.&quot;The goal for the SMS initiative is integration with the email campaign, basically creating a trickle campaign on the back-end,&quot; Mr. Haddox said. &quot;Rather than lumping these college students in with our main marketing campaign, we&apos;re segmenting them and treating them differently.&quot;We have to speak to a younger demographic in a different way,&quot; he said. &quot;We&apos;re trying to engage them and getting them to come in-store, and there are various ways, including the SMS sweepstakes.“In April, Pier 1 will be using SMS to make it easy for store visitors to opt in to its email program. The test will run in all Pier 1 California stores. This is a cool campaign because Pier 1 is not only inviting subscribers to opt into its email program but is also asking them (via email) to provide a full set of personal data (including their Twitter handle) with the promise of $5 off their next purchase.
  • Scotts products – like Turf Builder – are used by many major league baseball park groundskeepers. Fenway Park in Boston is one MLB ballpark where Scotts products are used. And Scotts is also a major advertiser at Fenway.In 2009, Scotts began experimenting with “between innings” text campaigns as a tactic to attract new subscribers to Scotts’ Lawn Care Update e-newsletter. The campaign is a natural for Scotts because fans can see how effective Scotts products are for Fenway Park, and Scotts uses “direct response text” to make it easy for fans to get information on how they can also get the same results for their lawn using the right Scotts products at the right time.The campaign test has been so successful that Scotts will expand it to other MLB parks in 2010.

  • Cable Chopping Network’s email marketing strategy accounted for 8% of total online revenue 2007 and 17% of total online revenue 2008. One of the keys to success for this $40M marketer of collectibles company, is their automated system for remarketing emails. The automated system – which uses ExactTarget and Omniture – sends customized emails to online shoppers who have placed an item in their shopping cart, but have not completed the purchase. The emails ask the shopper if they encountered difficulties in the checkout process and offer a discount for completing the purchase. According Steve Harris, VP Marketing for Cable Chopping Network, CSN’s email remarketing strategy accounts for more than $250,000 in “recaptured” sales annually. This represents a 5X return on CSN’s annual ExactTarget software licensing investment.
