“We decided to give customers a pair of socks for every two pairs of shoes they bought, encouraging them to buy a duo and increase the average order value of the period. The pain point was that we needed our customers to:

  • know exactly which product was eligible to get the promotion

  • select the size of the gift and add it to cart

  • add a discount code to the cart 

  • without losing or bothering them

Too much to explain in a single notification!”

Lucie Poirier, Digital marketing manager, émoi émoi

Campaign goal: Let customers get a free pair of socks for buying two pairs of matching shoes (one for a mom and another one for the kid)

Highlights:

  • Using two channels (onsite notifications and embeds) together—customers clicked the feed to go to the eligible products and then applied the discount code to take advantage of the offer

  • Making it easy for customers to apply the discount code to the shopping cart (in just one click in the Wisepops embed)

“The notification is perfect to inform about something, without sacrificing too much space or attention, two main barriers in the e-commerce sector. Online, people hardly stay focused for a very long time so your message has to be seen and easy to spot. Wiseopos fits perfectly here, offering us the possibility to share the news subtly. It also permits to leave this message for a month, while changing our homepages sliders and not sacrificing any other main event (product launch or sales)”

Terence Lajaumont, The Nines
