Email Appending Case Study: Leading U.S. Home Improvement Company

Background:

The client is one of the country’s largest home improvement companies and relies heavily on email to set appointments with customers and nurture them through the buying process to the point of conversion. The decision to invest in an email appending service was an easy one for the company because their response rates via email are substantially higher than for any other channels.

The Challenge: Unengaged Prospects

The client had a robust database of postal information but lacked email addresses for many contacts. When the company couldn’t reach customers via email, it struggled to:

  • Schedule appointments with customers who had indicated an interest in a product demonstration; and
  • Close sales with customers that had participated in product demonstrations.

Without working email addresses for many of its customers, the client was losing touch with them and missing out on many high-value opportunities.
