DD Perks – Year In Review

eCommerce, Food and drink, Loyalty, Personalized Link

Subject Line:  Luke – here’s your DD Perks Year in Review!

Creative Review: This is a great example of using data to promote brand loyalty for repeat customers. Dunkin Donuts used their transaction and customer data to create the content for this email.  The result is highly personalized to the subscriber, starting with the name in the subject line.  They used the purchase data to determine content specific to me such as the most common day or time I get my coffee fix, what type of coffee I like (hot) and what are some of the badges I earned as a loyalty program member.

What’s great about this tactic is not only is about as personalized as you can get, but it’s something almost any seller can do.  Whether you collect data using a loyalty card or app in store or gather it from ecommerce transactions, most sellers would always have the data points to create something like this.   My tip – don’t send these to prospects or single order customers as often you won’t have enough data to make a compelling piece.
