MailUp is crucial for cultivating relationships with loyal customers by informing them of promotions and updates. What’s more, by integrating MailUp to our loyalty platform, we can add key data to emails such as card point balances to emphasize value and benefits.

In order to manage the whole cycle of direct marketing activities for its customers, Loytrend needed a single, reliable platform to create and send emails and SMS campaigns in a simple and flexible way, with the ability to monitor the trends and the conversions generated in real time.Specifically, Loytrend’s key aims were and continue to be:
  • To collect new email contacts and telephone numbers for sending out loyalty campaigns.
  • To retain customers by sending targeted and profiled campaigns.
  • To create and launch omnichannel communications (both offline and online).
  • Taking full advantage of SMS, which are even more incisive and immediate than emails for recovering inactive customers.
As part of the loyalty strategy dedicated to CVG Moda – a fashion retail supplier – Loytrend has developed the initiative “A tavola con Valentina” (At the table with Valentina). The promotion was valid from March 10 to May 31, 2016 and gave away one of the six porcelain plates from the “Valentina” collection by Crepax to all CVG card holders who have made purchases of at least EUR 50 over the set period.The strategy was launched in the post-sales period to encourage pure purchases (with no discounts), and involved the following channels:
  1. Stores, involving an extensive membership campaign.
  2. Emails, with the launch of the campaign to all CVG members.
  3. Social networks, to spread the promotion and boost subscriptions.
  4. SMS, to reactivate CVG members who had made no purchases for at least 6 months.


SMS was shown to be crucial for the strategy’s success, as the CVG target was particularly responsive. To the 20 thousand SMS sent with MailUp, as many as 5,500 contacts reacted by going to their nearest store. What’s more, by comparing the results of the mailings sent from the MailUp platform with sales data recorded on each customer’s card, CVG was able to accurately measure the campaign’s conversion rate.
