What makes this a performing campaign?

When designing this campaign, The Daffodil focused on consumers looking for special offers after Christmas. As the holiday blues kick in, many consumers think about booking a holiday to have something to look forward to, so this is the perfect time to introduce them to luxury travel and hospitality deals.

The Daffodil created a short campaign, with a clean design and clear call-to-action that would instantly appeal to the 81% of mobile email users. A large preference for mobile email clients also meant that displaying images would not be an issue so they could be used to illustrate the stylish and luxurious atmosphere of the Daffodil Hotel & Spa. As well as enticing the recipient with imagery, The Daffodil included the titles ‘Early bird’, ‘Book January’ and ‘Book February’ to create a sense of urgency.

The Results

With the special deal included in the subject line, fear of missing out convinced 26% of subscribers to open the email. The urgency, timing and clean design pushed 29% of those who opened to click through and find out more about the deals. The Heatmap Report in Adestra’s platform showed 30% of those liked the early bird offer, followed by ‘Offers’ link at the bottom with 16% of clicks.

How did this impact the bottom line? With 6 direct bookings and 248 assisted conversions, this campaign brought a 2500% ROI to Daffodil.
