Successfully Use Email to Close the Smartphone Browse-To-Buy Gap - presented by Loren McDonald at eTail East, August 2014
It’s likely that many people are viewing your emails and visiting your website on their smartphones. But how many of them are converting? Conversions can be negatively impacted by various factors, including clicking from a mobile-friendly email to a non-mobile website or landing page, distractions and multitasking on the part of the recipient and the awkward or time-consuming registration and payment process on a small screen.
While addressing some conversion roadblocks might require extensive website and ecommerce makeovers, email can be a key tool in helping to take the friction out of smartphone shopping.
In this session, McDonald highlighted tactics designed to make your emails an engaging (and mobile-friendly) experience that will lead consumers to keep your messages in their inboxes until they're ready to act, including:
• Use responsive design techniques
• Add an email message to your onboarding program that encourages customers to register an account and/or store payment information
• Promoting social sign-in
• Creating educational emails for your shoppers
• And much more
