How it Happened
Wine.com.br analyzed their email promotional campaigns and sought to increase conversion from email. To determine the best provider for personalized emails Wine.com.br conducted a comparative test between RichRelevance and the in-house Sommelier’s Recommendations. RichRelevance powered 50% of the email personalization within the test and the in-house Sommelier’s Recommendations the other 50%.
The campaign was focused in the Saudade Day (January 30th), a day to remember good times once had, feelings of nostalgia. The focus of the campaign was to deliver personalized recommendations that feel more human, creating a deeper connection with the brand, simulating a friend’s recommendation, who would be familiar with your taste.
By monitoring the engagement and clicks derived from the email campaign and the website visits, Wine.com.br was able to measure the performance of RichRelevance’s campaign’s vs the in-house Sommelier’s Recommendation.
Leveraging RichRelevance’s XenAI platform combined with Wine.com.br’s email marketing tool, Wine.com.br was able to set themselves apart from competitors, offering highly personalized and relevant email communications.
As a result, the campaign achieved outstanding results, delivering increases of more than 77.6% in the conversion rate and 8x higher average revenue per email in some segments. The Personalization Cloud™ drove 30.79% of the day’s revenue, representing 34.71% of generated purchases (in a day), resulting in a conversion rate of 10.94%, 26% higher than the brand’s average.DOWNLOAD
