After signing up for both email and SMS, customers receive an email with a one-time-link for 30% off the entire site. Using a discount as an incentive for enrolling in email and SMS is an effective way in driving conversion rates up and for growing an email list. HexClad not only provides the exclusive discount link to shop in the email, they also feature upsells and brand attributes to help drive the customer to purchase.

HexClad’s post purchase email series “HexHax” is a series that highlights featured products, recipes, and hacks using their cookware. One way to keep customers engaged is by including seasonally relevant content and providing exclusive offers only available by subscribing. Using this approach in a post-purchase email can help increase the returning customer rate.
