Have you ever had the shopping cart of midnight’s past haunt you after leaving a purchase in your cart and not checking out? This somewhat creepy, but very effective tactic is referred to in the marketing world as Cart Abandonment Workflows. These automated email workflows are a part of the process with various automated sequences set based on user actions through a platform such as Hubspot. For example, if someone leaves a pair of boots in their shopping cart, they will receive an email a day later stating “don’t forget about me!” with a link to purchase the same boots they added to their cart, but never purchased. For businesses, this strategy can help you take advantage of a sale that otherwise would have been lost without following up with a consumer who did not pull the trigger on an item. This tactic has proven success in an everyday retail strategies, especially for the biggest shopping day of the year: Black Friday.

As an advertising agency, it’s important for us to stay up-to-date on the latest digital news and trends in regards to social media, graphic design and email marketing just to name a few. One trend, in particular, we noticed kept popping up in our inbox. Lately, companies that we subscribe to have been sending emails with ‘MAJOR TYPO’ in the subject line, which made us open it out of pure curiosity. Come to find out, some of these brands didn’t actually have a typo that they were correcting at all. Why might they do that you ask? Our hypothesis was that these companies wanted higher open rates for their emails so they thought of a subject line that would incline users to open their email, it certainly worked on us. So, we decided to put this hypothesis to the test.

Here at Zipie, we always brew the best cup of coffee. It’s always hot, and it’s always within 20 feet of everyone. Everyone has a unique cup: from our Accounting Assistant Alex Burgan’s Patrick Ma’homie to our Social Media Coordinator Bailey’s “B” mug. Our Graphic Designer Andrew Dyer shows his love for the Avengers every day while our Digital Strategist Rob Bebout makes sure everyone knows his name when he takes a sip.
