Entertaining Subscribers with Scratch Cards

A Scratch Card is a feature that can entertain your subscribers and boost your click rate. It’s a new thing in the email!

How can I use a Scratch Card?

We know that you are creative and will be able to use this feature in the best way possible. Here are some ideas that you can start with:

  • announce a lottery with a defined number of winners and let your subscribers scratch for the prize - discount / free shipping / something from your store.
  • hide an inspiring quote that makes your subscribers smile or visit your store and buy something for themselves.

Next to the Scratch Card, you can add other text elements/ images or collect the items with a Product Picker.

Defining the number of winners

Bearing in mind that some of the lucky cards could be delivered to non-openers, we have created an algorithm according to which you can choose what percentage of your subscribers are winners. It can be from 10 to 100% in steps of 10, i.e. 10%, 20%, 30%, 40%….100%.
