The Problem

Dash Drinks wanted to provide a more exclusive "VIP" experience for their eCommerce customers than traditional email marketing is able to offer. Their email and CRM was showing low conversion and engagement and they looked to Blueprint and SMS to help increase both on-site conversion and post-order retention and revenue of current customers.

VIP product drop

Dash Drinks wanted to launch their new product range, a premium soda water, exclusively on SMS to their most engaged customers. They build a cohort of VIP SMS subscribers through a simple number collection form in an email campaign that granted customers early access to their new Soda water range and exclusive discounts.

Dash Drinks then launched the range exclusively to their SMS subscriber list with a preview of the range and a time sensitive offer. This strategy resulted in an incredible 12% conversion rate and an army of brand super-fans.

SMS abandoned carts

As part of their overall SMS strategy, Dash Drinks also enabled a two-part SMS abandoned cart flow to help increase conversion at checkout and understand why customers were falling off. Dash Drinks doubled down on a time-sensitive offer and a 1-click cart recovery link to drive customers back to checkout.

This strategy resulted in a 15.1% conversion on the abandoned cart flow and £4.10 revenue generated with every message sent. This massively increased the previous 1% conversion from their email abandoned cart flows and also enabled Dash to understand why customers were falling off at checkout.
