Today's Marketing Breakdown:
In today's issue, I'm going to show you how my boss and I turned a 4-hour meeting into $20,000 in extra revenue per month.
All it took was one automated email flow.
Here's the blueprint that any DTC brand can follow:
Step 1: Identify the main goal
Our goal was to get one-time purchasers to make their 2nd order.
Step 2: Decide email cadence
We planned emails around key lifecycle stages.i.e. when we thought people were most engaged or at risk of churning.
Then we filled in the blanks.
End result: ~25 emails over ~200 days
Step 3: Develop a content plan
Some hypothetical examples:
Day 21: check-in - take a pulse of the customer: "How's your first order?"
Day 28: cross-sell a popular product
Day 35: flash sale
Day 36: flash sale extended
200 days of new content and offers.
Step 4: Write and design the emails
This is the most time-consuming part.
But can be done in a week with laser focus.
Step 5: Build the flow in Klaviyo
Another week of work with QA and setting up A/B tests.
Take on these two steps in tandem and you can move 2x as fast.
Step 6: Magic time 🪄
In Klaviyo, there is a magic function called the "back-populate" button.
Press that and all of your existing customers get dropped into the flow exactly where they are in the funnel.
i.e. if you ordered 33 days ago, you drop in at day 33 of the flow.
Step 7: Watch the sales come in
You now have a money printing MACHINE set up.
If no strategy or content changes are needed, you can let this baby run.
Just launch new A/B tests as you collect data to optimize and improve over time.
Step 8: Set up this same type of flow for the 3rd order, 4th order, 5th, etc.
1 day of planning.
1-2 weeks executing.
Hundreds of thousands of dollars waiting to be added to your business per year.
If you don't have this email flow set up, you're sitting on a potential goldmine of passive email revenue.
It starts with knowing your customer's lifecycle.
It ends with emailing your customer at the right time, with the right message, and the right offer.
