“Working with the Spellbound team has been a dream. They’ve supported us with strategy, implementation and any questions we have - they answer.” - Sammy Patten, Director of Retention.
Kitsch’s upcoming labor day promotion needed some spice.
With so many brands sending out the same “batch & blast” emails with 10-20% off, the question became: how can we stand out in our customers’ inbox?
After chatting with the Spellbound team about previous success stories with this exact problem, the answer became clear.
To design a gamified email on Labor Day.
Once the decision had been made, the teams got to work on brainstorming the design and feel of the game.
After the success of previous gamified emails, one thing had become clear.
Engagement correlates positively with revenue.
So, to drive more clicks and engagement in the email, a game was devised.
Taking inspiration from the Feastables “deal or no deal” style campaign, Kitsch and Spellbound devised a game that fit the branding of Kitsch.
Recipients could click a mirror to reveal their discount, which in turn took them to an exclusive link with the 25% off applied site-wide.
How was the email built?
The Kitsch design team provided a Figma file from their design team, which the Spellbound team then turned to life as a fully ready-to-go template imported into their Klaviyo account.
Throughout the weekend, the Kitsch team sent 3 more emails that weren't interactive but included the same discount. Despite differences in total opens, the “placed order” rate for the gamified email was 2.5x higher on average than those other campaigns.
Overall, the campaign was a huge success.
Key Stats: 2.5x higher CTR, 3x as high placed order rate and most importantly - the highest revenue generating email of Q3.
“Spellbound gives us a new toolkit for engaging with our customers. As cool as that is, its even better to see it connected to driving incremental revenue.” - Sammy Patten, Director of Retention
In addition to the gamified email, Kitsch is using Spellbound for a Welcome Flow Customer Preferences Survey and Post Purchase survey to gather more zero party data on its customers.
