Director of eCommerce and Marketing Channels at MAC Group
MAC Group succeeds because of their “company within a company” philosophy—each product is run as its own company, with its own unique needs and marketing demands. While this method makes for extremely personalized and relevant communications, it’s also time and resource-intensive, especially as MAC Group continues to grow its catalog and subscriber list. And after being in business almost thirty years, MAC Group’s massive customer database had begun to fragment, further complicating their segmentation and email marketing processes.
Here were their goals:
- Drive email clicks, opens, and conversions towards customer engagement and purchases
- Reduce manual set-up and execution of technical processes
- Ensure organization and sanitation of mailing lists
- Deliver personalized communications and relevant recommendations
Working closely with Maropost’s Client Success team, MAC Group created reactivation campaigns to cleanse inactive subscribers from their mailing list. Sophisticated filters worked to further to organize and sort their recipients lists moving forward.
MAC Group also set up comprehensive end-to-end email journeys to truly automate their campaigns—cutting down on time and resources spent, while eliminating several manual processes.
Using Maropost’s advanced visual reporting, MAC Group could see exactly how and where recipients were engaging with their emails, MAC Group then used that data to continually improve their campaigns.
