Pricerunner – Customized and relevant content
PriceRunner increased the opening rate of their emails by 51%, its CTR by 28% and reduced the number of unsubscriptions by 53% by delivering relevant content to their customers.
Developments in digital communication have meant that companies are now, more than ever, competing against each other to get the customer’s attention. Customers are now more picky than ever, regarding the content they choose to take part in and the products they choose to invest in. Sweden’s largest price comparison service PriceRunner faced a challenge: They wanted to increase communication with their customers, without bombarding customers with irrelevant offers. Especially during important holidays like Black Friday where it’s extra important to catch the customer’s attention. PriceRunner realized that with the help of relevant and personalized content, they could increase their digital communication and instead communicate with the right content at the right time.
PriceRunner felt limited in their previous digital platform. Before big shopping events like Black Friday, they felt the need to use a more flexible communication platform. They have previously noticed great success in the use of email marketing and realized from a strategic perspective that they will continue to invest in developing their email marketing strategy. PriceRunner also realized that another important step was to start delivering personalized and relevant content to their customers. They saw a challenge in how they could increase digital communication with their customers, without losing the relevance of their marketing.
PriceRunner’s goal in the future and before shopping events like Black Friday, is to be a natural part of the customer’s online shopping journey. To achieve that goal, they realized that they must be visible in the right place, at the right time, and deliver the right content. Before and during major sales events like Black Friday, PriceRunner continues to want online consumers to always look at promotions and find out if the offer is as good as it seems.
We wanted to scale up the work with email communication and realized that our previous supplier was not flexible enough for our visions. Especially during the Black Friday sales event, we realized that the existing supplier did not measure up.
