With a large range of online sales channels, ILIA Beauty wanted to better understand customers shopping directly with them, specifically what products were customers purchasing, were they ordering the same products each time or instead shopping for complimentary or entirely new product lines? Another key question was when customers were reordering products and returning to shop directly with ILIA.
“We’ve always had anecdotal evidence based on customer feedback. For some products it can be 3-6 months, and we want to see better data down to the product level so we can target customers precisely.”
Segments analyzed ILIA Shopify customer purchase data from the past year (across the last 2 years) and created a product purchase journey map that uncovered key data points around replenishment times for top selling products and provided the ILIA team an actionable strategy to target First Time (1st) purchasers, Repeat Purchasers and At Risk purchasers with targeted messages via email marketing and performance marketing.
Leveraging insights generated from Segments, ILIA triggered targeted engagement strategies to boost reorders and cross sells. The ILIA team also learned key insights on repeat product purchases, at risk customers and best selling product combos (data was shared with the ILIA R&D team).
Using Segments insights, ILIA Beauty focused on improving conversion on at risk first time customers to drive retention efforts.
