What’s A Browse Abandonment Flow?
The Browse Abandonment Flow is a series of emails sent to shoppers who have showed an interest in your products which we know, because they viewed a product on your website, but left without adding anything to cart or making a purchase.
Some of these shoppers may be new to your brand while others may be returning customers exploring new items or thinking about repurchasing products they’ve already tried. Think of these as “window shoppers” who are interested enough to browse, but didn’t have anything catch their eye!
# Of Emails: 2
Flow Length: 36 hours
What’s the goal of a Browse Abandonment Flow?
The goal of this flow is to get these shoppers to add some products to cart & make a purchase.
- Converts more new email subscribers into paying customers (which means more revenue!)
- Gets potential customers to make their first purchase faster (ie. the amount of time it takes someone to go from being aware of the brand to becoming a customer)
- Gets more revenue out of each lead you drive to your website (which means lower CPAs & more value from your website traffic)
- Gets more shoppers adding to cart & purchasing
