Case Study: Arvonia
E-shot propels Wales’ leading coach and tour operator to new heights of engagement.
Arvonia Holidays have been using e-shot for over 4 years. They use e-shot primarily as a lead generation and customer engagement tool, keeping the company front-of-mind, promoting offers as well as encouraging web traffic and social media engagement. Sending daily emails to their 8k strong list of engaged contacts.
Before e-shot, Arvonia Holidays was using Microsoft Outlook to send e-newsletters, however they soon realised the huge limitations of this method, including design restrictions, no reporting or analytics, slow deliverability to limited send numbers and no brand or domain protection. Arvonia wanted a far more professional email communication programme to increase leads from their engaged audience, and develop more sophisticated targeting to optimise their campaigns.
“e-shot is vital to our marketing communications. The system is so user-friendly, enabling us to quickly and easily produce attractive, professional mails. The insights from the reporting are critical to see what is working and helping us consistently optimise our campaigns. And when 38% of your web traffic comes from email these insights can’t be underestimated”Gavin Lloyd, Marketing Manager
