Emails are essential to your marketing success. In fact, MarketingSherpa found that email drives both online and offline purchases.

Rezdy has very powerful email marketing and operations tools that you may or may not be taking full advantage of.

In this blog post, we walk you through everything you can do with emails in Rezdy.

Automate engagement with your customers

Rezdy’s automated emails feature allows you to automatically send a bunch of emails so that your customer communications are consistent across the board.

Confirmation email

Booking confirmation emails are automatically generated by Rezdy to give your customers peace of mind after they have filled out your booking form.

 

You can add custom text, images, show and hide features, and see how your email will look with orders you currently have.

Click here for Advanced Emails setup instructions.

You can also trigger a confirmation email from the Order itself (tutorial here).

Reminder email

In Rezdy, you can send up to 3 automatic emails before the tour starts. Use this to avoid no-shows and disappointed customers.

Some ideas:

  • Say thank you for making a booking, saying we value your business and look forward to meeting you.
  • If they didn’t buy the extras that you previously offered them, this is your second shot. For example, “It will get a bit wet out there – do you have a waterproof camera? We don’t want yours to break, so you can rent one from us…” You may even want to give them a coupon code that they can use to sweeten the deal.
  • How many times have customers shown up with the wrong shoes? Remind them what they need to bring so they’re as comfortable as possible.
  • Send a reminder email 1 hour before the tour starts, with a map, what to bring, and the guide’s contact details.

Each email reiterates your Terms & Conditions.

Follow up email

Send up to 3 follow-up emails after your customer’s experience with you.

Some ideas:

  • Ask customers how their tour was, and ask for them to rate you on TripAdvisor.
  • Drive social traffic. For example, say, “Your photos/videos have been added to our Facebook page! Check it out here.” Include links to your other social profiles and ask for a follow.
  • Encourage repeat customers. Offer specific promotions for complementary products. You can include giveaways and free samples.

Many of your customers may be traveling and never be in the area again. That’s ok. Even a single review from them helps you build up your reputation.

You can link Rezdy to your email marketing software this via Zapier (if Zapier integrates with your email marketing software), or through WebHooks.
