E-COMMERCE TOOLS
Abandoned Cart Messages
Remind customers when they have abandoned their carts by sending them automated emails with their cart information. Unlike Klaviyo, Mailchimp also allows you to set up abandoned cart postcards to give shoppers that extra nudge to finish checking out.
Personalized Product Recommendations
Target different audiences with tailored promotions. Mailchimp allows you to integrate your sales data and will rank up to 10 suggestions to show each of your customers. Showcase products to segments of your audience that share specific buyer preferences.
Pre-built E-commerce Audience Segments
Tailor your marketing campaign easily to just about any customer attribute, including geographic location, shopping behavior, history of engagement, or birthday.
Product Retargeting Emails
Turn casual browsers into paying customers by reminding them why they lingered on your site and bringing them back to seal the deal. Mailchimp product retargeting emails capture what products customers browsed, whether or not they made it to the cart.
Order Notifications
Help your customers track orders, reduce the time you spend on routine customer questions, extend your brand, and open up a new avenue for sales. Mailchimp order notifications give you the ability to include product recommendations to drive sales growth.
Shoppable Landing Pages
Design brand-worthy, shoppable landing pages in minutes to highlight products and promote offers, sales, and contests. Customers can buy straight from Mailchimp landing pages. They work with Square, so you don’t need an e-commerce store for payments.
A/B Testing for Revenue
Experiment with different versions of the same campaign to understand what works and what doesn’t based on open rate, click rate, and total revenue. Mailchimp allows you to test subject lines, “from” names, content, and send times.
