Franchisee Finds a Valuable Lift From Email Prospecting
A franchisee owner of multiple Meineke centers needed a quick turnaround solution for increasing car counts to offset a drop in Paid Search traffic conversions. With the 6×11 postcard mailer program’s 3-week lead time being too long for this particular problem, another bottom-funnel customer journey tactic was needed.
UpSwell Marketing deployed a Prospecting Email campaign hitting potential customers’ inboxes within five days of the campaign approval. The emails were geographically zoned around each center’s location and demographically targeted to middle-income and higher homeowners with model year vehicles between 2000 and 2018.
The program deployed twice over a seven-day period to each recipient. Each center’s prospecting email provided the consumer with a link to location specific special offers and scheduling pages. 60% of the total revenue was generated by the first deployment and 38% of the revenue stemming from the second deployment, with only 2% of the revenue coming from recipients who opened both deployments. Adding a second deployment almost exclusively reached an audience that did not interact with the campaign’s first email.
