Tula’s Winback offers a discount, and the headline “we never do this” makes it feel special. They also give free shipping, no minimum, and create urgency with a deadline.
Plus, their email includes social proof and highlights best-sellers to help re-engage buyers.
This Winback email from Gap combines a killer offer (40%!) with a sense of urgency.
It also gives the customer a chance to update their preferences for better future email targeting, or unsubscribe if they aren’t interested.
🔨 Don’t forget to nail that subject line!
Remember, these customers haven’t engaged with your brand for a while, so your email will need to really grab their attention in their inbox.
Here are some examples of Winback subject lines we love:
- “We’ll be here when you’re hungry” – Home Chef
- “We TOTALLY need to catch up” – LOFT
- “2 Free Pints! Because We Miss You ❤️” – eCreamery Ice Cream
- “👋 Come Back & Enjoy 6 FREE Plates!” – Goodfood Market
- “A lot has changed! NEW Special Offer Inside.” – MunchPak
😔 Subs still not engaging?
If subscribers go through your Winback Flow and still don’t engage, it may be time to Sunset them.
