The Challenge

When eCom Maniacs was brought in to work on their retention marketing strategy in July 2021, we found that the client's existing email strategy only generated $9.5K or accounted for only around 17% revenue share.

What was holding them back:

  1. A subscriber list that is lean and unsegmented
  2. General lack of retention marketing strategy
  3. Inconsistent and intermittent email campaigns
  4. Flows are not set up for pre-, post-, and re-engagement


July 2021 - Start of our client engagement and the beginning of preliminary adjustments and setting up of flows and campaigns

August 2021 - Advanced Email Retention Marketing Strategy goes live


Email Revenue was at $9.5K which represented only 16.93% of revenue share.

Email Campaigns generated $2.1K, while Flows generated $7.4K in revenue.

Total List Size was just 207 subscribers.


The First Quarter (Q3 2021)

This refers to the period covering the first 3 months of working with eCom Maniacs' Advanced Retention Strategy.

Email Revenue saw an increase of 198% from the previous quarter (Q2 2021), which represents $43.6K in revenue.

Email Flows Revenue (light green in the graph below) increased from $7.4K to $18.6K within 3 months from launch. Email Campaigns were far and in between, at the client's conservative preference, and generated only a total of $2.8K for this quarter.

Total List Size increased by 623% from 207 subscribers to 1,498 subscribers.

After 9 months (Q1 2022)

Total Revenue amounted to $1M in the period covering July 2021 to March 2022. Email Marketing generated an aggregate total of $253.7K from July 2021 to March 2022.

Email Campaigns generated $37.9K in revenue (even with a conservative campaign calendar). Email Flows, on the other hand, generated $215.7K.

The client's Total List size also grew by 3,358% within the 9 months, from beginning with just 207 subscribers to a total of 7,160 subscribers in March 2022.

Our retention strategy has helped increase revenue by 198% for the brand in just 3 months. It likewise generated an aggregate of $253.7K additional revenue from email marketing in 9 months.
