Benefits of Automation in Brand Growth
Automation plays a crucial role in driving brand growth by enabling brands to scale their communications and increase customer engagement. Here are some key benefits of automation:
- Time Saving: Automation allows brands to set up and schedule communications in advance, saving time and reducing manual effort.
- Personalization: Automation enables brands to deliver targeted and personalized messages based on customer behavior, preferences, and lifecycle stage.
- Timeliness: Automated messages can be delivered at the right time, ensuring that customers receive relevant communications when they are most engaged.

- Data-Driven Insights: Automation generates valuable data and insights, enabling brands to understand customer preferences, behavior, and engagement levels.
By leveraging automation, brands can enhance their customer experience, drive customer loyalty, and generate revenue growth.
Mapping the Customer Journey
Mapping the customer journey is a critical step in developing effective automation strategies. It involves understanding the steps customers take from the moment they become aware of your brand to the point of making a purchase and beyond. By mapping the customer journey, brands can identify key touchpoints, potential friction points, and opportunities for automated communications.
Auditing the Customer Journey
To effectively map the customer journey, it is essential to put yourself in the shoes of your customers and go through the process of interacting with your brand. This includes visiting your website, browsing products, adding items to the cart, and going through the checkout process. By auditing the customer journey, brands can identify areas where communication can be optimized and enhanced.
Identifying Friction Points
During the customer journey audit, it is crucial to pay attention to any friction points or areas where customers may encounter obstacles or frustrations. This could include unclear messaging, complicated checkout processes, lack of information, or limited communication options. Identifying these friction points enables brands to address them through targeted automated communications and provide a seamless customer experience.
A/B Testing and Optimization
Once the customer journey has been audited and potential friction points have been identified, brands can begin A/B testing different strategies and messaging to optimize their automated communications. This involves testing different subject lines, CTAs, content formats, and delivery times to determine the most effective approach in engaging customers and driving desired actions.
Automating the Customer Journey
Once the customer journey has been mapped and potential friction points have been addressed, brands can begin implementing automation strategies to deliver targeted and timely communications. Here are some key areas of the customer journey that can be automated:
Welcome Series and Onboarding
A welcome series is an essential automation for new customers or subscribers. It provides an opportunity to introduce your brand, set expectations, and showcase key products or services. By customizing the welcome series based on customer data and preferences, brands can create a personalized onboarding experience that nurtures new customers and encourages continued engagement.
Cart Abandonment and Recovery
Cart abandonment is a common challenge for e-commerce brands. By automating cart abandonment and recovery flows, brands can remind customers of their unpurchased items and provide incentives to complete the purchase. These automated flows can be customized based on customer behavior, such as offering additional discounts or highlighting related products.
Birthday and Special Occasion Emails
Birthday and special occasion emails are a great way to engage customers and make them feel valued. By automating birthday emails and offering exclusive discounts or rewards, brands can create a personalized and memorable experience for customers. Special occasion emails can also be automated to celebrate milestones, such as the anniversary of a customer's first purchase.
Integrating Reviews and Loyalty Data
Integrating reviews and loyalty data into your automated communications can significantly enhance customer engagement and drive brand growth. Here are some ways to leverage reviews and loyalty data in your automation strategies:
Including Reviews in Emails
By including review content within your emails, such as star ratings, customer testimonials, and product reviews, you can provide social proof and drive customer trust and engagement. This can be particularly effective in abandoned cart emails, where displaying positive reviews can help overcome potential objections and encourage customers to complete their purchase.
Dynamic Content and Personalization
Using dynamic tags, you can dynamically pull in reviews and loyalty data into your emails, creating personalized and relevant content for each customer. For example, you can display the number of loyalty points a customer has earned or showcase specific reviews for the products they have shown interest in. This level of personalization can significantly enhance customer experience and drive conversion rates.
Using Loyalty and Referral Data
Loyalty and referral data can be powerful triggers for automation. By setting up flows based on loyalty membership status, referral activity, or points earned, brands can deliver targeted communications to nurture and reward their most loyal customers. For example, brands can send exclusive offers or VIP rewards to customers with a high lifetime value or incentivize referrals with bonus points or discounts.
Tips for Effective Email Deliverability
Ensuring that your emails reach the primary inbox rather than being flagged as spam is crucial for effective communication with your customers. Here are some tips to improve email deliverability:
Avoiding Spam Folders
To avoid spam folders, it is essential to follow best practices for email deliverability. This includes focusing on the quality of your email content, maintaining a good sending reputation, and avoiding spam triggers such as excessive use of capital letters or misleading subject lines. By sending relevant and engaging content to an engaged audience, you can improve your chances of landing in the primary inbox.
Finding the Right Sending Frequency
Determining the optimal sending frequency depends on your brand and your audience. It is important to strike a balance between staying top of mind and avoiding email fatigue. Regularly monitor engagement metrics and adjust your sending frequency based on open rates, click-through rates, and unsubscribe rates. Segmenting your audience based on engagement levels can help ensure that you are not overwhelming inactive subscribers with excessive emails.
Maintaining a Good Sending Reputation
Your sending reputation plays a significant role in email deliverability. ISPs and email providers evaluate your sending practices, subscriber engagement, and complaint rates to determine whether your emails should be delivered to the primary inbox or flagged as spam. To maintain a good sending reputation, focus on sending relevant and engaging content, regularly clean your email list, and promptly address any complaints or unsubscribe requests.
Automation holds tremendous potential for supporting brand growth and driving customer engagement. By mapping the customer journey, identifying opportunities for automation, and leveraging reviews and loyalty data, brands can create personalized and timely communications that resonate with their audience. With the powerful combination of Stamped and Klaviyo, brands can enhance their customer experience, build trust, and drive revenue growth. By following best practices for email deliverability and optimization, brands can ensure that their messages reach the right audience at the right time, driving meaningful results.
