Optimisation of mailing frequency

Previously, the frequency was 3+ emails per week. To maintain engagement and reduce exodus of the contact base, we decided to reduce the number to 1 email per week and developed a new content email strategy.

As a result, AVON subscribers started to receive only three promotional emails with different content types while each new catalogue was valid:

  • New items in the catalogue
  • Bestsellers
  • Products from the “Sale” section/promotional offers

A/B testing

After analysing the brand’s email campaigns using the click map, we found out that most of the time, subscribers visited to the website after clicking on the first block, without scrolling to the end.

This means that they had time to get acquainted with only a few new products, missing information about other exclusive offers from AVON.

Catalogue preview

To achieve the maximum coverage of subscribers with each new campaign, we have added a block with a preview of the current catalogue to all promotional mailings.
