About the Brand
Bliss is a spa skincare brand that combines 20+ years of professional skin expertise with cutting-edge innovations and nourishing ingredients to create products that leave you – and your skin – glowing.
The Bliss team was looking for new ways to grow their overall eCommerce business, prompting Blue Moon Digital to recommend relaunching an SMS program for the acquisition and retention of customers in complement to the email strategy.
We partnered with Attentive – a leading SMS platform – to launch SMS campaigns, with Blue Moon Digital supporting Bliss’s program strategy and execution. Together we set up a mobile-optimized two step on-site capture promotion to gather email in addition to a phone number. Then we set out to re-engage users from a past email program while also acquiring new subscribers. That strategy began with a “We Miss You” message for lapsed users that encouraged them to come back with a discount incentive. Our team then implemented multiple iterations of offers for new users, including mobile signup, text-to-join, swipe up to join on Instagram, and a site pop-up.
We recommended additional acquisition and testing strategies such as loyalty segment outreach, and MMS vs. SMS to gauge whether users responded to imagery vs. copy imagery. Finally, we began unifying messaging across channels to create a consistent brand experience for new subscribers.
