New Customer Welcome checklist: start building loyalty from day 1

The first part of your New Customer Welcome campaign should include an email that has a few goals. This email would go to new customers right after their first order. It’s different than the welcome emails used when someone subscribes to your mailing list. Long enough. Before anything else, make sure the email is long …

Stop losing potential repeat customers after their first purchase

Even if you’ve had a slow year so far, there’s still a lot of opportunities to turn it around over the next months. One big hole I see in a lot of Shopify stores is how they treat their newly purchased customers. Many stores rely on Shopify’s confirmation emails and then will either dump the …

Have your new customers help you out of an economic downturn

If you find your store heading into a downturn (or if you’re already in the middle of one), you’ll want to rely on your existing customers more than usual. Most ecommerce stores only have 1-in-4 customers come back and make a second purchase (~27%). Improving that, even if just a little bit, can have a …

Timing your promotions to convert new customers into repeat customers

Getting your one-time customers to buy a second time takes proper timing. Send marketing messages too soon and you’ll disengage customers.

Ideally they’ll get on your New Customer Welcome Campaign, but if you don’t have one just check that they are getting on whatever email list you regularly send to.

Fighting back weedy customers

Yesterday I trimmed a neighbors hedge that’s right on our property line. It’s an aggressive grower so I have to do it every year. This year, there was a good two to three feet of overgrowth. I remember last year I only did a halfway job, intending to come back later and do a second …

Start converting holiday customers into repeat customers

With winter finally here, I’ve been getting the garden cleaned up. The lettuce couldn’t take the cold so I removed the cover and cleared out that bed. The trellises I used last year were beat up by our tomato monsters so I’m rebuilding them (New and Improved, with more Steel). Quite a few of our …

Educating new customers by sending a mini-booklet with each order

In my garlic order this year the farmer sent a small booklet. It’s under 16 pages but beautifully designed. Hand drawn art, thick cardstock paper, with silver ink on black for the cover. Inside are descriptions and histories of all of the garlic families, information on how to grow and cook them, and some details …

Review and revise your New Customer Welcome campaign

The past couple of weeks I’ve been going through the onboarding emails for Repeat Customer Insights. These emails are sent to new customers to introduce them to the app. They are the software app version of the New Customer Welcome campaign I often write about. I’m going through them because I’m rebuilding the system that …
