Subscription E-Commerce

Subscription-based e-commerce is a popular sales strategy used by many major brands internationally. By using a subscription system for products or services, a business can develop recurring sales revenue and build lasting customer relationships.

Customer Engagement Platform for Subscriptions

From selling superfoods to software, the success of your e-commerce subscription business is driven your customer retention rate. However, with subscriptions come cancellations. It has been proven that having recurring customers is far more cost-effective than constantly acquiring a new customer base; therefore you have to utilize a customer engagement platform that can not only save people at the point of cancellation but also prevent them from reaching that point in the first place.

Senior Director, Growth Marketing

Redfast has been a great partner to our streaming business. Using their tools, we are seeing a 12% uplift in saving users with billing issues and 9% lift in saving users who intend to cancel. They held our hand throughout the set-up process but also taught us how to use the tools so that we can now launch new prompts, create A/B tests, and update existing prompts by ourselves. The tool is great, but the partnership with the Redfast team is what really tips the scale. I highly recommend using Redfast for your Lifecycle/Retention needs.

Redfast – Preventing Subscription Cancellations

By using our platform, our existing clients have seen an average 16-25% increase in customer retention through preventing subscription cancellations. The way we do this is by intercepting the cancel click with either a survey or dynamic save offer. At the point of cancellation, either of the following will be implemented:

  • The customer will receive a dynamic save offer contingent on the customer’s lifetime value or other attributes

  • A cancellation survey will be presented, with a conditional offer dependent on the survey response

By using our ecommerce marketing automation platform, we have seen fewer cancellations, a chance to re-engage wavering customers and the opportunity to address and mitigate technical or content issues for our clients.

Personalized Prompting through Redfast Platform

When it comes to creating a prompt that aren't perceived as valuable (not annoying) by end users , personalization is key. Using Redfast, prompts can be personalized with the customer’s name and personalized based on their use of your service.

The prompt is dynamic and uses a combination of lifetime value and other quantifying metrics to create dynamic offers (for example, offering 50% off next month’s subscription fee by not cancelling.)

And with our 1-click technology, the customer is connected directly to your billing and backend systems to make the payment without being redirected, ensuring a convenient and simple process for the customer and a conversion rate that is 2x higher than traditional methods. This is a proven strategy in successfully preventing subscription cancellations.

How it works

  • You choose the prompts for cancel-save, upsell, feature adoption, content promotion or custom use case.

  • From here, the Redfast team utilize their experience in running prompts for 100 million MAU’s in order to design, target and configure your company’s use case.

  • At this point, you can preview our work by experiencing your prompt in a production environment, which replicates how an end user would experience it.

  • And another cool thing – we launch with A-B testing. This means that our team of experts will conduct statistical analysis on your behalf. We do this by using a control group, baseline prompt and variant to achieve the best possible outcomes for your use case.
