Abandoned cart flows & CX

Skout Organic also enabled a two-part SMS abandoned cart flow to help increase conversion at checkout and understand why customers were falling off. Skout Organic used a colloquial and personal message to introduce the founder, offer support, and a simple link back to the checkout.

Skout Organics two-part SMS abandoned cart flow quickly resulted in a 19% conversion rate and $4.71 revenue generated per message as a result of the 98% open rate on SMS and immediate one support that was offered. This is a 5x increase on the traditional email abandoned cart flow where historically only 2 in 10 people even see the message.
