FutureYou Cambridge’s core audience is very specific, finding popularity amongst older health-conscious individuals interested in restorative, maintenance or preventative care.
The brand wanted to grow the number of customers buying online without sacrificing the personalised, caring experience their offline customers receive when speaking directly with their award-winning Customer Care team on the phone.
The brand also wanted to ensure digital and offline communications were fully aligned to deliver consistent, timely communications with personalised messages which demonstrated a true understanding of the customer’s needs.
Having been using an ESP, their marketing was limited to sending the same message to a list of names. To achieve a consistent and personalised customer experience, the team needed to have a platform in place that would be able to create a seamless multi-channel experience and assist the marketing team with flexible testing options.
This is where Ometria came in.
With customers engaging with the brand both online and offline, through direct mail, FutureYou Cambridge wanted to be able to create a more complete picture of its shoppers and understand their needs.
Through the creation of targeted automation flows, combining both email and list generation for direct mail; using Ometria, FutureYou Cambridge were able to set up campaign flows that fully aligned communications.
Direct mail was sent with individualised codes connected to each shopper on the direct mail list in the platform. The marketing messages encouraged customers to redeem an offer online by including their unique code at checkout.
Using the Ometria platform, FutureYou Cambridge was able to gain insight on which products shoppers redeemed codes on, to learn more about their tastes and interests. Customers were then included in an updated welcome campaign.
Ometria also gave FutureYou Cambridge the ability to personalise the company’s newsletter, which went out to both online customers and shoppers from direct mail who opted in after their first online purchase.
By using dynamic content the supplement brand is able to make its messaging more relevant to the individual customer and their health interests – without additional work for the team. Hero images and discounts are dynamically changed based on the preferences of the recipient.
FutureYou Cambridge was also able to segment the broadcast newsletter recipients based on whether they were a long-time or new subscriber and alter the content to suit the customer lifecycle stage.
As well as personalising the online messages to shoppers who came from direct mail, Ometria enabled FutureYou Cambridge to learn which combinations of products proved most popular. Within the platform the brand was able to offer select items to purchase together and up-sell products that were overall favourites.
By using Ometria to learn more about its customers’ preferences, FutureYou Cambridge could then create a replenishment campaign for those items. Shoppers that had originally come from direct mail, now become avid subscribers and engage with the brand across more than one channel.
After 1 year of using the Ometria platform, FutureYou has achieved:
