Unveiling March's data insights

In this section, we'll delve into the data insights we've gathered from previous March campaigns. These insights will help you understand customer behavior during this period and inform your marketing strategies


Promotional deals in March 2023

The average discount ratio in our database was 13.48%. Here’s the breakdown by industry:

Here's the breakdown by Industry:


Average discount ratio

Beauty & Fitness




Food & Drink






Food for thought:

Notably, industries like Travel and Health offered higher discounts, potentially to capitalize on post-New Year's resolution trends and early vacation planning. Apparel’s lower discount ratio potentially suggests a focus on maintaining profit margins.


Popular subject lines

Effective Words: 'sale', 'free', 'save', 'weekend' were key to higher open rates.
High Click-Through Phrases: 'early access', 'last chance', 'free shipping'.

These are popular subject lines across numerous stores in our database. Given that February's biggest holiday is Valentine’s Day, these high click-through rate subject lines and phrases are most likely around Valentine’s Day-themed campaigns (as well as US Presidents Day)

Here are the phrases with highest Click-through rates:

Email send dates in February 2023


Notable spikes in customer engagement were observed on February 1st, 7th, 14th (Valentine's Day), and 21st (Presidents' Day).

Key takeaways & suggested strategies:

  • The start of each month typically has high engagement rates, as many brands have monthly kick-off campaigns. February 7th and 14th spikes are Valentine’s Day campaigns, with stores sending early access campaigns as early as 1 week before V-Day. February’s 21st spike is most likely due to Presidents Day, as Presidents Day was on Feb 20th last year in 2023.


Strategies for February Campaigns

Key takeaways & suggested strategies:

  • Segmented Valentine's Day Promotions

    Why It Works: February is synonymous with Valentine's Day, a key retail holiday. By segmenting your audience (e.g., singles, couples, families) and tailoring promotions accordingly, you can maximize relevance and appeal. For example, offering "Galentine's" deals to singles or "Date Night In" bundles for couples ensures that your messaging resonates with the specific needs and desires of each segment.

    Use data insights from past purchases and engagement to segment your audience effectively. Craft messages that speak directly to each group's unique Valentine's Day perspective.
  • Referral Programs and Loyalty Rewards

    Why It Works:
    February's focus on love and relationships can extend to brand loyalty. Encourage referrals through incentivized offers for your customer base can be good way to attract new customers. At the same time, rewarding customer loyalty further strengthens the emotional connection with your brand.

    Offer double points for purchases made in February or special rewards for customers who refer a friend this month. Make sure the referral process is simple and and easy!
