So, what is the data source for relevant offers?
You can find some of them below:
- Sign up and lead generation forms. They help to collect personal data that was left while subscribing or filling in a form. That can be first name and last name, phone number and email address.
- Email. You get information based on customers activity with emails. For example, you can choose the best day and time for sending emails.
- CRM-platform. It can provide you information on customers’ performance on your website, their interests etc.
- Information on clicks and customers actions with your previous emails.

- Demographic data. That can be name, age, phone number, the name of a company, occupation, email address.
- Geodata. Information about customers location.
- Customer’s behaviour, their psychological portrait. Behaviour on your site and in emails helps to identify customers interests, needs and wishes.

Make your customers feel they are special
A customer will be pleasantly surprised how you meet their demands and needs. The more personalized content you give the less “opt-out” customers you’ll get. You’ll always be able to offer your customer a personal bonus or discount, inform them about any changes and send them holiday greetings.
Some examples of how to employ dynamic content in email-strategy
The most common example of dynamic content is addressing your customer by their names. As known, a name is the most valuable sound for any person and if you aim to make interest with somebody call them by their names.
If your database contains customer names it’ll be used instead of “lead.fname”, if not, a customer will get an email with а generalized phrase “Dear customer” (or any other phrase what you’ll choose).
If you know the gender you can send personalized product recommendations to men and women.
If you know your customers location you’ll be able to send emails according to their local time zone and personalize your email marketing to people according to the place of their living.
It’s an easy way not only to remind of yourself but also to please your customer. A warm congratulation and a little personal discount as a present put a smile on their face and they will like you.
This kind of letters increase conversion rates up to 28%. That is why it is very important to remind your customers about their forgotten baskets.
This example takes into account customers activity and behaviour on your website: what are they looking for?, how much time do they spend? What website sections are more interesting? In order to track their activity you just need to place a tracking pixel on your site.
Up-to-date information on your or your partners website
Add to your e-mail reliable up-to-date information that changes every day, for example, exchange rates, timekeepers for your promotional actions, stock-exchange quotations.
