This presentation was delivered at Shop.org on September, 29 2010 by Loren McDonald, VP, Industry Relations, Silverpop. Topic description: Sophisticated retailers are moving transactional emails beyond the "order process" and generating significant results by deploying "pre- and post-purchase" email streams. These triggered emails often comprise less than 5 percent of email volume, but produce 40 percent or more of email revenue. This session will review "transactional 2.0" email techniques, including cart abandonment, product review requests, order replenishment and more. We will discuss best practices and review the technologies and resources required to implement them.
