Post-purchase email templates

Regardless of what you sell and who to —  whether it’s a repeat customer or a first-time buyer – well-composed and well-timed automated post-purchase emails can have an immediate positive impact on your business. These types of emails can help you keep customers engaged with your brand, nurture long-term customer relationships, and generate more repeat sales. Post-purchase email campaigns are also one of the easiest and most effective tactics for improving customer loyalty and retention. And since attracting new customers typically costs five times more than retaining existing ones – these emails should definitely be a part of your email marketing strategy.

Why send post-purchase emails?

Post-purchase emails have the highest open and click-through rates of any email marketing campaign. In fact, according to the data by Klaviyo, post-purchase emails see a 217% higher open rate, over 500% higher click rate, and 90% higher revenue per recipient than your average email campaign. Research from Medallia (a customer experience firm) published in the Harvard Business Review also found that “Customers who had the best past experiences spend 140% more compared to those who had the poorest past experience.”

Post-purchase emails can be used to:

  • Encourage customers to come back to your website
  • Lay the groundwork for the next purchase
  • Convert new buyers into repeat customers
