Persado research has shown emotions drive more than 60% of consumer response. Think Anxiety (“Your attention please! Sweater weather has arrived!”) and Gratitude (“Because you’re a loyal customer, we’re giving you extra-special travel perks.”). Movable Ink complements this by supplementing the optimized, emotional language with a personalized visual experience based on customer behavior in real-time. So, if a retailer sent an email to a customer, Movable Ink’s visual experience platform would deliver the most relevant experience based on the recipient’s behavior at the time of open, infused with best-performing language from Persado.

Making our case

The Microsoft Rewards team recognizes the critical role of communication in maintaining engagement from various user segments and showcasing program features and benefits.

As a joint client of Persado and Movable Ink, Microsoft Rewards came to Persado looking to optimize content and drive engagement with existing members as well as new member acquisition. Using our mix of data, analysis and personalized language, Persado helped Microsoft achieve huge uplifts.

In early 2018, Microsoft Rewards kicked off a rebranding campaign combining Bing Rewards, Xbox Rewards and Microsoft Rewards into a single cross-platform engagement program. In the example above, customers receive the first account statement following the aggregation of three legacy loyalty programs.

For such an impactful campaign, Microsoft was pleased to see improved awareness of the revamped program, increased engagement from users and actionable insights that could support the broader program. Thrilled by the results, Microsoft continues to surpass goals under the new integration with Movable Ink.
