Drizly keeps their customers in high spirits

Prior to partnering with Emarsys about a year ago, Drizly had sent the same mass email to every customer every Friday. But by partnering with Emarsys, Drizly is now able to focus more on treating each customer as an individual with more personalized messaging. In addition to sending more personalized ad hoc emails on Friday, they’ve started sending segmented emails (3x more effective than ad hoc), triggered emails (6x more effective), and most importantly push messages (24x more effective!).

Push messages have become increasingly important to Drizly’s mobile strategy because a lot of transactions are happening through the app. Knowing there was a need to improve their mobile strategy, Drizly turned to Emarsys. With Emarsys’ mobile technology, Drizly is now able to send rich push messages and in-app notifications — backed by a layer of AI — to further personalize the experience.

What’s on the horizon for the world’s most progressive alcohol delivery service? Weather personalization, sports personalization, and geo-location customization to align messaging when and where customers want to get their drinks.
