The Reconnect19 Selligent Awards winners are:

Best Behavioral Personalization (two winners)

Online home improvement retailer sought to minimize the rate of abandoned carts across seven of its ecommerce sites through email journeys that dynamically update based on the refreshed data at each touch point. The company dramatically increased response rate through a series of follow-up touchpoints, ultimately driving conversions, growth and average order value.


Missouri Star Quilt Company

Online quilting supplies retailer and YouTube sensation Missouri Star Quilt Company merged its abandoned cart data with its Daily Deal data to reach out to customers in time for them to take advantage of deals each day and products they were most interested in while respecting deal expiration times. By leveraging data to provide timely and relevant email campaigns, Missouri Star Quilt Company converted abandoned carts into completed purchases.


Best Deliverability: Inman News

Leading real estate news publisher Inman News was challenged with increasing deliverability while retaining engagement and keeping its 400,000 daily contacts engaged. Through thoughtful data analytics using Selligent Marketing Cloud, the publisher was able to qualify its subscriber list and increase consistent deliverability to more than 98 percent.


Best Innovation: Vitacost/Kroger Digital

Leading retailer Vitacost (Kroger Digital) developed a “Mystery Sale” campaign to drive engagement and revenue with a kinetic email targeted at six primary customer segments through special loyalty offerings. The digital campaign reduced customer friction by incorporating interactive elements, including a button that revealed the offer within the email without users having to go to a landing page.


Best Marketing Automation: Alliant Credit Union

Leading digital banking institution Alliant Credit Union set aggressive goals on the use of its home equity line of credit (HELOC) products. Through customer engagement data analysis, the credit union launched content-driven campaigns to activate its customer base that lack knowledge of how to use their loans. Alliant Credit Union was also recognized for digitizing its new customer onboarding system, using a four-part email campaign with content designed to engage and educate new customers.


Best Segmentation: Deluxe Rewards

Custom loyalty program company Deluxe Rewards launched a new segmentation strategy designed to increase customer engagement and education for Allstate Rewards loyalty members. By dissecting its customer segmentation data, Deluxe Rewards developed different segmentation approaches to target new customers as well as existing members. Results of the new approach exceeded goals with 93 percent of new members moving to the highly-engaged segment within the first three months.
