Strategies to Use Time to Reorder in Your Store
Here’s some suggestions on how to strategize and get the most out of Time to Reorder on your online store:
Remind Customers Before Supplies Run Out
If you’re selling a product that usually needs to be repurchased relatively frequently, Time to Reorder is a great opportunity to encourage your customers to come back to you for that repeat purchase. Optimize your reminders by customizing the replenishment time period for each product it’s on. For example, if you’re selling a supplement that contains enough capsules for 30 days, give your customers the option to select a Time to Reorder reminder that will let them know to reorder in 30 days before they run out. They’re not locked into that future purchase (in case they don’t end up liking the supplement) but they’ll be reminded of it at the right time anyway if they do want to buy it again.
Set Up Automatic Reminders without Customer Input
By automatically setting up order reminder emails whenever any customer purchases a specific product, you’ll give customers a pleasant surprise down the road when they may have forgotten that they bought from you or were never extremely invested in you to begin with. Now, with a surprise email that shows you still remember them, customers will be pleasantly surprised and more willing to engage with your brand.
Save Customers with Emails “Just in Time”
There’s nothing better than being a customer and getting close to running out of a product that you need to restock soon, only to check your email inbox to see a reminder and CTA to buy it again just before you’re out. By adding this feature, you’ll potentially save a customer from forgetting to restock and running out of their product, positioning your brand as one that cares that they have what they need and remembers that they bought from you.
Encourage Reminder Sign-Up with a Promotion
Order reminders are great for ensuring repeat purchases, and offering a discount for signing up will make a huge difference in encouraging that repeat purchase to happen. With a customer that otherwise wouldn’t have signed up for a reminder, offering an incentive will push them over that edge to click that button. After all, it’s a free reminder email that they’re signing up for, so they have nothing to lose while you have everything to gain.
