Key discussion points

  • Let’s start with your background and why you decided to focus on Klaviyo for luxury fashion & retail
  • Before we drill into your eCRM expertise, can you share your view on the latest trends for email marketing: what’s hot & why, where are brands focusing their investment?
  • We find customers often want a layer of data insights on top of a tool like Klaviyo to drive smarter flows, how do your customers approach this, what sort of tools are they using in addition to Klaviyo & what benefits does this provide? 
  • We’re advocates of nailing retention flows for customers, from 1st time buyers to incentivising repeat purchasing and other positive behaviours. Can you share some examples of how to do this well and, other than discounts, what should brands be offering their customers?
  • How can you do retention eCRM effectively without a loyalty program? 
  • Measurement: what metrics do you use to analyse performance, what makes a good email marketing report?

  • What’s your advice on how to accurately define and identify lapsed customers?
  • Klaviyo segments: what data can and should people be passing into their ESP, what does smart segmentation look like – what is meaningful segmentation?
