Have you ever considered how the concept of the popular Facebook Timehop app could be applied as an effective strategy for email marketers? Marketing automation provides a powerful tool that allows marketers to capture consumer preferences and behaviors in real-time and use this information to promote relevant messaging. This article discusses how the Timehop concept presents marketers with a fun and friendly opportunity to develop engaging messages that align a consumer’s past history with their current needs.
The article highlights three ways to help you integrate the Timehop concept into your email marketing strategy:
- Seasonality – Remind consumers of past seasonal purchases to promote current seasonal offers.
- Durability – Anticipate when consumers will need to replace or renew current products or services to tailor communications that make it easy for them to make additional purchases.
- Fashionability – Ensure that your current offers not only leverage past consumer behavior, but also reflect the latest trends in your industry.
