Carving up the competition
Forged as a tribute to the bond between a son and his father, Égard produces exceptional timepieces that do more than simply tell time — they capture moments.
Egard began working with Underground Ecom in February 2020 because they wanted to increase their overall revenue. They also wanted to utilise a team of third-party experts to act as an extension to their internal marketing.
Email Strategy, Email Design, Flows Creation,
Campaigns Creation, SMS MARKETING
Being a high end jewellery item with celebrity endorsement it was vital that Underground Ecom was able to capture and develop the essence of the brand from both a design and copywriting perspective. This was done through multiple interviews with the founder Ilan as well as deep research into the brand from the Underground Ecom team.
Once brand alignment was achieved Underground Ecom was able to produce and execute on content
with very little input from the Egard team.
INITIATIVE AND INDEPENDENCE
Egard wanted a team that could handle email and SMS challenges without much oversight. It was vital for them that they could trust the team with everything from strategy, content and execution. This would allow them to free up internal bandwidth of their own team.
By first going through rigorous brand alignment we were able to get to the stage were we could produce on brand content with no input from the internal team. We then set up weekly reporting calls and easily accessible workflows for the Egard team to review. On top of this the end to end capabilities of the Underground Ecom team meant the entire email and SMS marketing channels were managed with next to no input required.
CONSISTENT REVENUE GROWTH
The big challenge for Egard was to generate consistent revenue growth in the email and SMS channels. This would give them the confidence to spend more on advertising to acquire new customers knowing they would become profitable through the back end email channels.
We set about growing Egard’s revenues and building a foundational email strategy in the following way:
- We established a regular cadence of campaigns with a focus on segmentation for delivering the right product to the right person.
- We consolidated email & SMS under a single roof (Klaviyo) and made those channels function as one well-oiled machine.
- We constantly tested and adjusted the language and copy of our emails based on engagement data so that we were able to continue to make incremental gains in performance
