How to achieve Email Personalization for Woocommerce

Research indicates that 80% of consumers are more likely to make a purchase when brands offer personalized experiences. You can find many other studies on this topic, and they all point to the same: customers prefer personalization, and marketers agree that personalization works. If you still don’t personalize your email campaigns; you should start right now.

We have discussed “personalization” in different articles before, however, it would be useful to briefly recall the subject.

Personalization in e-commerce refers to the practice of tailoring the online shopping experience to individual users based on their behavior, preferences, demographics, and past interactions with your brand. It involves delivering relevant content, product recommendations, and promotional offers to each customer, with the aim of enhancing engagement, driving conversions, and fostering customer loyalty.

What is email personalization (and why is it important)?

One of the marketing channels (and maybe the most important one) where personalization can be used effectively and efficiently is email marketing. Email personalization is essential for building relationships with leads and customers. Customers appreciate when brands add personal touches and pay attention to small details when communicating with them. The more you personalize a marketing email, the less likely it is to get lost in the recipient’s spam inbox.

Email personalization is important for several reasons. Personalized emails:

  • are more likely to capture the recipient’s attention, leading to higher open rates, click-through rates, and overall engagement.
  • can drive higher conversion rates and ultimately increase sales and revenue.
  • help to build stronger and more meaningful relationships with customers by delivering content that is tailored to their individual needs and interests, fostering loyalty and repeat business.

How can you make your marketing emails more personalized?

When it comes to personalized emails, the first thing that comes to mind is starting your email with your recipient’s name, but of course, personalization is much more than that. If you want to start personalizing your emails, you need to know the basic concepts and tactics:

  1. Use the Recipient’s Name: Just because it’s the first thing that comes to our mind doesn’t mean it’s not important. Based on a study, personalization of subject lines makes emails 26% more likely to be opened. You should address recipients by name or reference their recent actions in the subject line to grab their attention and increase open rates.
  2. Segment Your Audience: Personalization starts with segmentation. You should divide your email lists to segments to provide personalized content that resonates with your subscribers. Segmentation can be done based on gender, job title, location, interests in certain products, recent purchases, where they are at the buying journey, etc.
  3. Call To Action: If you want to increase engagement and conversion with your email, you should include a call to action (CTA). The CTA represents the specific action you want the reader to take, and this action could vary depending on the email’s objective. Such as: shop now, learn more, subscribe, start free trial, contact us, etc.
  4. Send Triggered Emails: You can set up automated email campaigns triggered by specific actions or events, such as abandoned cart reminders, welcome emails, or post-purchase follow-ups. These triggered emails are timely and relevant to the recipient’s current stage on their customer journey. Please remember that welcome emails have a 63.91% open rate – which is huge.
