BulkSupplements Case Study

The Challenge

BulkSupplement’s Shopify store was generating 50% of its traffic from mobile devices so it was critical to find a mobile channel to engage its customers. 

It tested various mass communication marketing channels and ran ads to retarget mobile shoppers without much success. This left it searching for a new strategy that was a surefire way to reach its audience where they were the most active.

The Solution

BulkSupplements was new to SMS marketing and needed a solution to quickly convert mobile visitors to subscribers and engaged them immediately.

With the help of Recart’s Customer Success Manager (CSM), it implemented a custom-made SMS marketing strategy.

The plan consisted of four primary tactics:

Welcome pop-up: Two-tap mobile opt-in combined email and phone number capture to grow SMS subscribers list quickly.
Welcome Flow: To greet subscribers and give them an opt-in journey they wouldn’t forget or ignore with a three-part sequence.
Abandoned cart flow: To reengage warm shoppers and seal the deal with timely, automated messages.
Promotional campaigns: Tactical sends to captivate customers with exciting deals, announcements, and holiday discounts.

Website Pop-Up

To build its SMS subscribers, BulkSupplements and Recart replaced a two-form pop-up (top) — that displayed on both desktop and mobile — with separate two-step pop-ups (bottom).

After collecting email addresses on mobile, the second step contained what’s known as two-tap SMS capture:

Visitors tap on the CTA button, which opens their phone’s text app with a preloaded message
Then, they simply tap “Send”

Welcome Flow

To greet subscribers and give them an opt-in journey to remember, BulkSupplements sent a three-step Welcome Flow. 

Immediate: SMS with a 15% discount code
After 2 hours: Reminder with an attractive image
After 24 hours: A second reminder to trigger buying

To optimize spend and prevent sending too many texts, each contained a conditional split to exclude anyone who either made a purchase or had items in their cart onsite.

Abandoned Cart Flow

Recovering abandoned carts via SMS automation is one of the critical sales drivers for ecommerce brands — this was true for BulkSupplements. 

Recart assisted Bulksupplements in setting up an SMS abandoned cart recovery campaign, sending automated cart reminders with time-sensitive discounts on the cart total.
