Easter Egg Marketing

Easter egg marketing

 

Hide special features of your product and make them known initially only to a small group of users. 

Easter eggs are powerful as they go against users’ expectations. People love knowing secrets but they like to share them even more – other users who see them will start asking how you did it -> instant virality.

For example: Snapchat’s black & white filter.

Send weekly / monthly summary to your users

 

Send a weekly/biweekly summary of users’ activity/accomplishments in your app/website/platform via email. 

If possible, let them know the positive effects your app/website/platform made on their life/business e.g. ‘last week our app helped you generate extra 57 leads’. 

Seeing tangible effects will make users want to stick to your product for a long time + they will share it as well. (Remember Spotify’s ‘Year in review” that was super popular back in 2019.)

For example, Grammarly send these summaries and users know how many times Grammarly helped them pumping the grammatically correct stuff.

 

Auto-display cart content on return visit

 

Increase the conversion rate of users who add products to cart but don’t complete their purchase in a given visit to your store by displaying cart content on their next visit. This way they won’t forget about it plus, you can add a custom message with a discount if they checkout in the next e.g. 10 minutes.
