increase in conversions from basket abandonment emails
lift in data volume and data quality with Wunderkind, which was 111% better than typical ESP solution
Wunderkind doubled email acquisition to over 10k per week

Kurt Geiger has successfully implemented Wunderkind on it’s UK based flagship website with great results. But as it looked to add performance marketing capabilities to its other brands and regions, it decided to build a solution replicating Wunderkind’s tactics. It was trying to increase cart and category browse abandon messaging as well as increase acquisition of unknown traffic opt-ins.
They had access to best-in-breed engineering talent and invested in the needed development costs over several months to build and implement. They also had the luxury of having Wunderkind on their flagship site so they felt they could replicate the triggers, cadences and creative that Wunderkind was delivering. Their team knew they didn’t have the breadth of data or scale of Wunderkind’s identity graph, but they felt confident they could get close to a similar solution.
Their in-house solution did create lift in conversions over the out-of-the-box abandoned cart and browse solutions offered from ESPs and CRMs directly, but it did not come close to the results Wunderkind was delivering on the flagship site. The decision to implement Wunderkind across the additional sites led to a 151% increase in conversions over their own solution, as well as doubled weekly opt-ins to over 10k per week. Furthermore, the quality of consumer data collected also spiked significantly. It was agreed that Wunderkind’s data, AI engine, identity graph and service – rooted in years of best practice experience – was exceeding expectations and the best long term solution.
