A Success-Charged Strategy for Naturally Electric Products

Cosmic Cell have a niche audience and understands them well. With frequent returning customers, outstanding loyalty, with a focus on retention — the store knew that offering big discounts would mean big success with SMS.

It used three tactics to accomplish great results …

Subscriber Growth: Mobile & Email First Desktop Popups

Between May 2022 and Jan 2023, Cosmic Cell grew both its SMS as well as email list significantly.

Its SMS subscribers went from 618 to 6,778; email increased by 1,207 with a 9.2% conversion rate.

SMS List Growth

The strategy was simple. Popups offered a healthy 15% off discount additionally the methods for mobile and desktop were split.

For SMS, direct-to-text popups meant that mobile browsers could easily opt-in to SMS with two quick clicks.

For desktop visitors, two step popups (which are more convenient for text input) asked for email first followed by phone numbers.
