How Snowbird Uses Aspenware’s Abandoned Cart Email Functionality to Boost Conversion Rates
Mar 8th, 2022

Abandoned carts are ubiquitous in the ecommerce space. According to XP2 by Dynamic Yield, a leading online ecommerce marketing platform, cart abandonment rates average over 71% and the number is even greater in the luxury goods and travel sectors. [1] Abandoned carts can, however, provide resorts with opportunities to give guests more information to help them complete the purchase. Clearly, the guest was interested enough in the product to go to the resort website and place the item in the cart. For some reason, however, they didn’t complete the purchase. The reasons for abandonment could be many – sticker shock, hesitation to commit to a non-refundable purchase, confusion about products or packages – and the cart provides an opportunity to interact with that guest again, provide more information, and help them complete their purchase. Aspenware’s Abandoned Cart Email functionality can help resorts take advantage of that opportunity.


Snowbird has put this functionality to use with great success. Their abandoned cart emails cleverly remind guests that items were left unpurchased. They also paint a picture for the guest about the experience they will have at Snowbird with a detailed description of the terrain and average snowfall and offer a contact number for questions. Then, the guest is given a method to easily return to their cart with the items already added for a quick purchase.

Snowbird has seen an impressive boost in conversion rates from these emails. Abandoned carts have been turned into online sales and opportunities to share an incredible guest experience and build loyalty.

“Setting up abandon cart automations are a quick and easy way to re-engage your highest intent customers on the verge of completing their order. They can be fun emails that incorporate your brand voice and a bit of support help ease any reservations. Sometimes all we need on the ski hill or in the shopping cart is someone telling us to just point ’em downhill.” – Kolton Smith, Snowbird Digital Marketing Manger
