frequently asked questions

Why is domain sender verification important?

Domain sender verification is a vital step in your email setup process to enhance the deliverability of your email campaigns. Domain sender verification involves the generation of a Sender Policy Framework (SPF) record and a Domain Key Identified Mail (DKIM). Establishing a domain-based message authentication, reporting and conformance (DMARC) policy is a technical standard that helps protect email senders and recipients from spam, spoofing and phishing.

By recording these specialized records on your Domain Name Server (e.g. GoDaddy or Google), your recipient’s email filter will identify your email marketing platform and IP address as a legitimate and safe sender.

What is lead scoring?

Lead scoring is a modern form of the sales funnel, allowing you to virtually assess where your shoppers are in their buying journey.

Assign points based on customer interactions including opened emails, campaign clicks, website activity, product page visits as well as video or social media engagement.

Drive hyper specific conversion funnels, customer segmentation and automated actions based on individual lead scores.

What is A/B testing?

A/B testing is a form of trialing, analyzing and refining different variations of content to understand which iterations resonates best with your target customers.

A/B testing for email marketing can take many forms. One example is testing two different email subject lines. Subject line ‘A’ may have a slightly different flavor of words used compared to subject line ‘B’. With specialized email marketing platforms, you can execute iterations ‘A’ and ‘B’ to a small percentage (10%) of your total audience. By knowing how many recipients opened each email, you make an informed assumption of which iteration the remaining (90%) audience members are most likely to open.

Why use cart abandonment emails?

Cart abandonment emails allow you to provide a continuity of shopping experience. People are busy, and despite your best efforts, your loyal wine lovers may leave wine cart sessions incomplete.

Provide a gentle reminder with automated email or text message reminders. Create a personalized email with item specific last abandoned cart with direct linking back to the shopper’s previous cart session. Check out our marketing automation service for a more in-depth approach to automated email campaigns.

Do you also manage text message marketing?

Our winery email marketing solution also functions as a fully integrated text message platform. Leveraging the power of Twilio, we can help you set up a broad range of text message touch points including automated reminders, booking confirmations, post-purchase or post-winery visit thank you messages, wine club welcome or shipment reminders, update payment information, birthday text messages and many more.

What if I want to manage campaigns in house?

The pricing above are indications of our fully managed standard services, but we will customize your email marketing service to meet your company and marketing team’s needs.
