Example

Consider sending a classic browse abandonment email, with all of the standard components: company branding at the top, explanation of why the email was sent, call to action to continue shopping, recent product details, company USPs, and a standard footer.

In addition to showcasing the abandoned product, include recommendations for similar items to encourage the shopper to convert. You should consider setting a price threshold for the trigger so you don't send a browse abandonment email to a shopper who was looking at a low price item.

Segment

No segment is required for this play, simply choose the Browse Abandonment option in “Send Options”

Measure

Leverage the open and clickthrough rate to understand engagement, but also focus on conversion rate and revenue per user to understand the campaign’s impact. Increased average order value is also a key indicator of success of this campaign.
