Let’s take a deep dive into exactly how we deliver our dedicated services.

The Value of Dedicated Account Management at SaleCycle

SaleCycle’s ecommerce Abandonment Managed Services and Software as a Service (SaaS) are both solutions that can help online businesses reduce cart abandonment rates and improve sales. However, there are some key differences between the two approaches that make our managed services a better option for most businesses.

For example, both Klaviyo and SaleCycle are marketing automation platforms that offer account management services to help businesses maximise their use of the software. 

However, Klaviyo is a SaaS – meaning that they may not be as beneficial for businesses that require more personalised attention and support.

SaaS is a software delivery model which is subscription-based, that typically provides a standard set of features to all customers.

With an account managed service like SaleCycle, businesses can benefit from personalised onboarding and ongoing support, access to a dedicated account manager who can offer guidance and advice, and the ability to customise the software to meet their specific needs.

Here are some reasons why SaleCycle’s Managed Services may be better for your online business than SaaS:

Personalised approach: Managed Services are typically offered as a fully-managed service that includes post-purchase email campaigns and other strategies tailored to your business needs. In contrast, SaaS solutions are often more generic and may not be able to provide the level of customisation that a managed service can offer.

Expertise and experience: Managed services are handled by experts in ecommerce marketing and sales who have a deep understanding of customer behaviour and how to optimise the shopping experience. With SaaS, you may have to rely on your own team’s knowledge and experience to get the most out of the software.

Ongoing support: Our dedicated account managers are able to offer ongoing support and optimisation to ensure that your campaigns continue to perform at their best no matter what stage of the business’s journey. 

Cost-effectiveness: While Abandonment Managed Services may be more expensive upfront, they can often be more cost-effective in the long run. This is because a managed service can help you recover more revenue from abandoned carts, while SaaS solutions may require ongoing investment in staff training and staff numbers to achieve the same results.

In summary, ecommerce Abandonment Managed Services, provided by SaleCycle, can provide a more personalised, expert, and cost-effective approach to reducing cart abandonment rates and improving sales compared to Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions.

Meet Our Account Managers

Kirsty Metcalf is an experienced ecommerce account manager here at SaleCycle. She has worked with a variety of top ecommerce businesses, helping them to optimise their online presence and increase their revenue. In this Q&A, Kirsty answers key questions from a dedicated Account Management perspective, including key tips for increasing conversions and recovering online sales.

Q. As an Account Managed Service provider, how do you work towards recovering online sales for ecommerce businesses?

A. Part of my role as an Account Director is to build relationships with clients so that I have a full understanding of their current business objectives. I will arrange regular meetings to discuss performance and advise on which SaleCycle products may best suit their needs. 

One of the best ways to identify new opportunities is by completing a business review of the current campaign set-up. I will analyse the data and provide suggestions on how to improve their current strategy by creating an optimisation plan. The plan is designed to ensure the client reaches the full potential of the SaleCycle campaign to grow their current performance and maximise ROI and will include custom A/B test recommendations relating to their campaign. 

As part of these discussions I will also provide expert recommendations for any additional opportunities which will compliment their current campaign to help meet their wider business goals.

Q. Based on previous communications and relationships with clients, how much can a cart abandonment campaign positively impact an ecommerce brand?

A. During my time at SaleCycle I’ve been fortunate to work with some incredible global brands, and have witnessed first hand the positive impact a cart abandonment campaign can have on their overall online sales. 

Email open rates vary a lot by industry, type of email and market. For example, the average ecommerce open rate is often around 15%, however I often see upwards of 45% on SaleCycle emails. 

I’ve worked with brands who initially decided to implement a one cycle cart abandonment campaign where the email was sent between 30 minutes to 1 hour from abandonment. Typically we would recommend a two or three cycle campaign, so following successful optimisations based on our best practices, we were able to increase the number of conversions generated through the campaign by +25%.

Q. What 5 tips would you provide to anyone looking to recover more online sales and maximise their customer base?

A. Here are my top 5 tips to recover online sales and maximise your customer base: 

1. Review drop off rates across the site to identify key areas for improvement. This will help shape your strategy to implement targeted messaging and increase online sales. You can then prioritise the touchpoints you want to incorporate into your journey.

2. Test, test and test again! The sky’s the limit when it comes to optimisation and by split testing you will ensure your campaigns remain fresh and relevant… There is always room for improvement.

3. If you want to enrich the user experience you can include dynamic personalisation or segmentation to make the content more targeted to that customer’s journey. By displaying relevant content or imagery within your campaigns you will be sure to improve click through and conversion rates.

4. Incorporating abandonment surveys into your current strategy is a great way to understand why visitors are leaving your site without purchasing. By asking visitors their main reason for abandonment you can react to common themes and implement changes accordingly.

5. Reinforce key messaging such as promotions, sales or new product launches by incorporating banners into your abandonment strategy. You can further enhance this by adding a countdown timer to create additional urgency.
