Why send a birthday email?

It's been proven that birthday marketing campaigns generate one of the highest conversion rates of all email campaign types. Experian analysed the results of multiple birthday email campaigns across all sectors and found the following:

  • 481% higher transaction rates than promotional emails
  • 342% higher revenue per email than promotional emails
  • 179% higher unique click rates than promotional emails

What does the app do?

The Happy Birthday App enables you to drive repeat business by rewarding loyal customers with a timely birthday for your store on their special day.

The app will allow customers and visitors to sign-up to your Birthday Club and will automatically send them a Birthday email and discount on or before their Birthday based on your settings.

How does it work?

The Happy Birthday App allows you to collect your customers’ birthdays in three ways:

1) A Birthday Sign-up Form on your store's Thank You page (also known as the Order Status Page) which appears after every successful purchase

2) A custom Birthday Sign-up Page which you can direct previous customers to and also link to in the footer of your Shopify theme

3) A Birthday Sign-up feature in the Shopify PoS (Point of Sale) app for in-store customers to provide their date of birth.

If you have collected customer birthday information outside of your Shopify store, then you can also choose to import that data using our CSV (Comma Separated Value) upload feature.

Once added, your customers will receive an email from you on their birthday. You can choose to send a simple custom birthday greeting, or choose to include a unique “single usage” discount code for your store.

Our reports show that Merchants using the Happy Birthday App are achieving an average email open rate of 60%, click through rates of 10% and conversion rates of 5%.
