Louis Tesse, Head of Digital Marketing & Product Offerings, and Audrey Delcroix, CRM Manager at Kiabi, shared the scoop about the challenges relating to the brand’s customer engagement strategy at international level, the solutions they used, and the first results of the brand’s partnership with Batch.
“When your name is Kiabi, you can't underestimate omnichannel marketing – it has become a key issue in sales. If you want to give customers a simple, appealing and tailored omnichannel experience, every word matters.”
Develop an omnichannel customer experience
Use data to guide decision-making and to emphasise how projects create value
Grow the marketplace to make more products available to families
Our teams use Batch as a tool for customer recruitment, engagement and activation, in addition to other channels used by the brand
“We launched the marketplace in France, and we’ll soon do it in other countries. The idea is to give customers a greater choice, which for us is a paradigm shift. We want to increase our product offering from 19,000 to 200,000.”
Ensure the right message reaches the right person, with the right commercial pressure
Make CRM measures more appealing
Maximise traffic and activity on the website and app
“This year we’re reaching for the sky and we want to drive as much traffic as possible. That’s why we decided to use Batch to maximise monetisation and improve our CRM tools.”
In just a few months, Batch helped improve business performance on Kiabi’s websites by:
Increasing the number of visitors from the web push notification channel: 3.3% of traffic comes from web push notification campaigns
Driving qualified traffic to Kiabi’s websites: €131,000 of business comes directly from web push notification campaigns
Optimising conversion rates continuously: 1.3% is the average conversion rate for web push notification campaigns, with 3,359 transactions generated and 115,187 transactions influenced by web push notification campaigns
“Our number one goal is to give traffic and activity on our websites a real boost. Web push notifications help us increase the number of visitors from that particular channel and we think they’re a great tool for raising brand awareness. Like text messages, web push notifications can be used to notify customers about special offers, to celebrate special occasions, to share discounts and new articles, and more.”
