The Problem

Personalizing customer relationships

Like many retail-first brands, Shameless Pets opened an eCommerce website when they saw huge demand from pet owners wanting to purchase their products online. This DTC model required a different relationship with customers - one that offered immediate, personalized and on-brand support at every stage of the buying journey. Shameless Pets found it difficult to deliver this intimate customer experience with email, and looked to Blueprint's SMS solution for help.

Automated message flows

Shameless Pets created a simple automated message flow for each step in the post-order customer journey. This included personalized messages for order confirmations, dispatch notifications, feedback messages, and reorder prompts. The brand customized each message with their unique tone of voice to build a closer customer relationship and drive long-term brand equity.

By using SMS, Shameless Pets were able to have a fast, colloquial conversation with their customers that email could never replicate. They were able to speak to buyers like a friend, and engage in the type of direct, 1:1 conversations that rarely take place between consumers and brands.
