How did Bristol Toyota Scion create a Valentine’s Day email campaign with a 58% open rate?

Everyone knows Valentine’s Day celebrates the ladies. That’s why Bristol Toyota Scion in Bristol RI, recently used LoyaltyTrac, their service rewards program, to conduct an email campaign centered on Valentine’s Day being “Ladies’ Day”. Colorful, Valentine’s-themed emails were sent to all of their service reward members, with the Subject Line: Be Our Valentine - View Your Gift Inside. The email included an offer: Ladies Receive $15 Off Any Service of $35 or More.

The campaign ran on 2/10/12, with available redemption being from 2/10-2/18.


This was the first LoyaltyTrac promotion Bristol Toyota Scion had ever done to its service reward members and it resulted in a very heartening open rate of 58.33%, far surpassing the Direct Marketing Association’s (DMS) average of 12-14% for opt-in lists.


Other LoyaltyTrac auto dealerships have achieved similar results with this Valentine Day-themed email campaign.  Howdy Honda in Austin, Texas, ran the same campaign and enjoyed an open rate of over 30%. The campaign also resulted in 41 service appointments scheduled and a nice profit too: estimated campaign revenue to date of more than $8,700.

Specially designed email campaigns themed around holidays and events can boost return business throughout the year. It's key to engage users with content that is informative, easy to digest and adds value. Good Luck!
