Newsletter #21 - 4 ChatGPT Prompts to Boost Your Marketing Efficiency 💊
August 14, 2023
Picture it... an always-available assistant to write your Instagram posts, generate your email campaigns, or optimise your product pages.
Here are some ways in which AI ChatGPT can support your e-commerce and teams in your daily tasks.
In this newsletter, I'm sharing four ChatGPT prompts to help you save time on your marketing tasks, improve your customer's experience, and boost sales 🏄🏼♀️.
Note: While ChatGPT is an incredible tool, artificial intelligence has its limits. So, use it with caution ☝🏻
Writing your social media posts 📱
ChatGPT can generate a multitude of ideas and content for your social media in record time while maintaining your style and brand voice.
Here's an example of an Instagram post for the brand Asphalte ⬇️
Here's how I asked ChatGPT to produce similar content.
Here's an example of an Instagram post I wrote to promote our referral program:
[PASTE DESCRIPTION OF THE ORIGINAL POST]
Write the description of a post on the same subject from a different perspective. Use my style.
While the text still needs some work, 75% of the job is already done.
And that's absolutely fantastic, isn't it?
Attention-grabbing subject lines 🧲
ChatGPT can also help you write the subject lines of your marketing emails in no time.
For example, you can use this prompt:
Imagine you are an experienced copywriter and write the subject line for my upcoming marketing email. The email's subject is a 24-hour flash sale of a new collection of swimsuits. Please give me 5 different subject lines.
Now you just have to choose the subject lines you like the most and A/B test them 😎
💡 Bonus tip
For simple requests, I recommend always asking ChatGPT for multiple options. If the result doesn't satisfy you, you can easily mix them up.
Writing engaging emails... 👊
Now that you have the subject line, you can ask ChatGPT to write the body of your "24-hour flash sale" email.
Here's what I asked for:
While acting as an experienced copywriter, write the body of this email for me, including the CTAs. Use an engaging tone and create a sense of urgency for the reader.
💡 Bonus tip
Opting for a plain text email - without images, custom fonts, and very few links - is an excellent way to boost the conversion rate of your marketing emails. Your recipients perceive them as more personal and often have higher engagement rates.
... and personalized ones 🛠
ChatGPT can also assist you in writing more personalized emails.
For example, you can ask:
Write a thank-you email to a customer who has just received their order. Explain why customer testimonials are important and offer them a discount of X€ in exchange for a review.
💙 Bigblue Tips
Build your email flows based on your logistics data using Bigblue's integrations with Klaviyo, Gorgias, and Zendesk!
Take advantage of these integrations to gather genuine customer reviews, promote referral programs, and increase repeat purchase rate. 💸
Take my logistic emails to the next level 🚀
Make your products shine ✨
Displaying clear, precise, and appealing descriptions of your products is essential to convert your visitors into customers.
For this, ChatGPT is a valuable asset.
For example, you can tell it:
Write a concise and engaging description for a durable and waterproof hiking backpack.
Simple and effective ✌🏻
Newsletter #20 - The Secret Recipe to Build 1M€ Landing Pages
August 14, 2023
Today, I suggest we explore a tool that is often underestimated but incredibly powerful: landing pages.
Why? With an average conversion rate of 12.9%, landing pages are an excellent way to reduce your advertising expenses, decrease your CPA, and increase your sales 💥
In this newsletter, I reveal the advantages of a landing page strategy for your business and share with you the key elements to creating ultra-effective landings!
PS: To help you put these tips into practice, I've included examples of landing pages for you to copy right away 👀
4 benefits of landing pages for your e-commerce
Showcasing your product 📸
A landing page focuses on a specific product or offer. The perfect opportunity to take the time to highlight all its advantages and seduce your prospects!
Skyrocketing your conversion rate 🧨
By guiding your visitors through a simple path with a single purpose (buying a product, signing up for a newsletter, downloading a playbook, etc.), you eliminate all possible distractions and significantly increase your chances of conversion.
Boosting your SEO 🧨🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀
Each landing is a new page indexed on your site! It improves your natural referencing and therefore offers you more visibility on search engines. By optimising your landing pages with relevant keywords, you can also attract more qualified traffic to your e-commerce site.
Collecting valuable data about your customers 🎣
Landing pages are also excellent tools to learn more about your customers and test your audience's interest in different products, offers, or content. You can then reuse this information to refine your marketing strategy and better meet your customers' needs!
The key elements of an effective landing page 🗝
1. Fast loading
Your conversion rate decreases on average by 4 points per second of loading. To optimise your landing page’s conversion rate as much as possible, aim for between 1 and 4 seconds of loading.
2. Clearly state your offer from the start
To do this, make sure your Hero Header contains:
- Clear and concise title and subtitle,
- Engaging CTA,
- An image or video representative of your offer or product.
💡 Extra Tip
Videos increase landing page conversion rates by an average of 86%.
To help you, I'm sharing Dollar Shave Club's example below ⤵
3. Social proof.
9 out of 10 visitors rely on customer reviews on landing pages! Add reviews, customer quotes, or a few key figures to reassure your visitors and convert them into customers.
4. A presentation of your brand
To do this, try to answer the following questions throughout your landing page:
- Who are you?
- The why of your brand and why someone should buy it.
- Why are you legitimate to sell your offer?
- Why are you the best option on the market?
- How fast can your customers get your product?
5. A (single) personalised CTA
Even though it's tempting to add several CTAs to your landing page, it can be counterproductive. I recommend focusing on a single CTA and customising it to the maximum. Personalised CTAs convert, on average, 4x more!
6. A newsletter sign-up link
Don't miss the opportunity to stay in touch with your prospects!
💙 Bigblue Tips
With the Bigblue application, you can customise your tracking pages and post-purchase emails with marketing banners. Take advantage of this to redirect your customers to your landing pages!
Transform My Emails into Lead Machines!
3 landing pages to copy right away 👀
- Javy Coffee's product page (without a menu to avoid distractions).
- Bombas' referral page (which offers to automatically send a reminder to the referred person).
- Glossier's splash page (unlike a pop-up that appears after a trigger, a splash page is already present when you arrive on a page).
Newsletter #19 - 4 tips to maximise the performance of your Ads, while reducing their carbon footprint
August 14, 2023
In 2022, the influencer marketing market was valued at $27.51 billion.
Behind these numbers, the findings are shocking: the video content of an influencer followed by more than 3 million people on YouTube, TikTok, and Instagram generates 1,072 tons of CO2e per year.
This equals 481 round trips between Paris and New York (9 flights per week 🤯).
However, there are simple methods to reduce the carbon footprint of your videos while maximising their performance 🚀
In this newsletter, I will reveal 4 actionable tips from the agency Footsprint to generate more responsible advertising campaigns 🌱
1. Master the length of your videos ✂️
The longer a video is, the more energy it consumes.
To reduce the carbon footprint of your videos while boosting their effectiveness, I recommend prioritising short formats.
To help you, here are the most performant formats according to the platforms, as observed by Footsprint:
- TikTok: 16 to 20 seconds
- Instagram: 5 to 10 seconds
- YouTube: 10 and 15 minutes.
By adapting the length of your videos, you can improve their performance and reduce their environmental impact.
2. Reduce their resolution 🌐
Reducing the resolution of your videos effectively decreases the amount of data stored and transferred, and thus their impact on servers and networks!
A video posted in 480p will generate 80% less emissions than in 1080p (84kg of CO2e
versus 498kg of CO2e)!
And even if it is posted in 720p, its impact is still halved.
Yes, but 1080p resolution is the standard...
On desktop, maybe, but it's different on mobile.
As Steve Jobs said: The magic number is about 300 pixels per inch (118 pixels per cm)... That's the limit of the human retina to differentiate pixels when you hold something about 25 cm from your eyes.
On TikTok, where content is mainly consumed on mobile, a resolution of 720p or 480p is therefore enough, without any substantial loss of quality.
3. Prioritize Wi-Fi connection 📶
Watching content on cellular data consumes an average of 7 times more energy than on Wi-Fi!
At the same time, in terms of impressions, videos viewed on a Wi-Fi network would generate better performance than on cellular data.
Of course, Wi-Fi users are usually in a place (or at a time) where they are more focused and therefore more receptive to consuming content.
Footsprint has also observed that on TikTok, the cost per click of an advertisement broadcasted on Wi-Fi is on average 25% cheaper, with a 16% higher engagement rate 🔥
Good news: Meta allows you to target only audiences on Wi-Fi.
✅ How to implement these best practices in your campaigns?
Committing to responsible digital practices is an excellent way to strengthen your brand image and credibility with consumers increasingly sensitive to the ecological transition. You can see all of Footsprint's best practices just here ⤵️
4. Recycle your content to maximise its lifespan ♻️
Your content is popular? Reuse it!
In addition to reducing your production costs, you maximise the visibility and memorisation
of your ads, while minimising emissions related to wasted impressions.
You can, for example:
- Cut your "long" videos into several shorter creatives for your ads.
- Compile several excerpts from performant videos to create an original video, to which you can absolutely add your brand codes (logo, etc.) like Poiscaille.
- Incorporate them into your marketing emails or post-purchase emails like Unbottled ⬇️
- Integrate them into your website or product pages to increase your social proof like Glossier.

Newsletter #10 - Detractors or big discounters, who's doing what for Black Friday 2022?
August 14, 2023
Less than 24 hours away from Black Friday, I'm sharing with you the original and innovative marketing strategies of 5 brands for this edition and revealing what to expect from consumers. Plenty of inspiration for your future campaigns, whether you offer discounts or not 😉
What can consumers expect?
📈 French consumers are expected to spend an average of €255 on Black Friday (15% less than in 2021), while the budget of Swiss and German consumers is around €300.
📱 Over 70% of BFCM (Black Friday Cyber Monday) sales will be made on mobile, even though conversion rates and the number of products purchased are higher on desktop.
🌱 According to the 2022 Shopify report, 40% of consumers are willing to pay more for eco-friendly products and 52% of French consumers are willing to buy second-hand Christmas presents.
What are the brands up to?
1️. eBay is back... and does nothing!
The French second-hand marketplace recently made a comeback and announced that it would not participate in Black Friday.
eBay has also revealed an eco-friendly marketing strategy for the holidays and will highlight second-, third-, and fourth-hand Christmas gifts.
📹 Video comeback
If you missed it, I'm sharing their campaign video (watch until the end).
2️. Amazon launches Black Week... and goes green
Since Friday, November 18, 00:01, until Monday, November 28, 23:59, the marketplace is offering up to 70% off millions of products.
To help consumers navigate the sale, Amazon has even created a guide to find the best deals.
New this year: to cater to consumers' interests, Amazon also offers a Climate Pfledge Friendly store that only lists more sustainable products, refurbished or certified according to more than 30 standards such as Fair Trade, GOTS, Carbon Neutral, etc.
3️. Unbottled commits to "No Plastic Days"
The cosmetics brand Unbottled is partnering with No Plastic in my Sea, which fights against marine pollution.
Their customers can benefit from reduced prices, and 100% of the profits will be donated to the organization.
PS: their subscribers could benefit from early discounts starting today by signing up through their newsletter.
💡 How to handle unhappy customers during Black Friday?
Discovering that a product they recently ordered is now available at a discounted price can be frustrating for your customers.
To keep them loyal to your brand, you can, for example:
🎟 Offer them a voucher for a future purchase.
🔙 Refund the difference.
🔀 Exclude recent customers from your promotional campaigns (especially with the help of the Bigblue + Klaviyo integration).
4️. Faguo isn't offering discounts and launches a "greenline" campaign
As part of the French collective Make my Friday Green Again, which brings together more than 1,000 brands, it's no surprise that Faguo is not participating in Black Friday.
To raise awareness among consumers, Faguo even launched 3615 - Buy less and better, a (real) phone line to help you resist the temptation of Black Friday! To test it, dial +33 9 72 12 12 34 and press 1 📞As every year, the brand will also offer a free repair workshop in-store this Friday, November 25.
5️.Gymshark keeps its Black Friday champion title
Gymshark's Black Friday started on Thursday, November 17, with discounts of up to 60%, which can be combined with the discounts the brand offers to students, sports professionals, and military personnel all year round.
If in 2021 Gymshark had made a parody of a workout session to announce its Black Friday deals, it opted for Instagram-focused communication this year. Their account features a "Black Friday Wishlist" and a countdown in their stories, as well as a modified bio for the occasion.
The 2,000 discounted products were also revealed in advance on their website to allow customers to make their wishlists for the big day.
NB: the brand averages 20% of its turnover during the holiday season, including 40% during the first 6 hours of Black Friday.
Finally (and for even more marketing ideas), I'm sharing the playbook The guide to sell 1M€ on BFCM 2022: Build your win-big strategy with strategies from the top brands!

August 14, 2023

💌 Just ask :)
68% of customers will leave a review about their order if asked.
Unbottled offers a 20% discount voucher for each review posted. They've generated more than 1000 customer reviews ⭐️ on its best-selling product pages.
This tactic helps collect authentic reviews and builds customer loyalty while generating additional sales.
To collect as many reviews as possible, follow these recommendations:
⏱ Be fast and reach out to the customer while their experience is still fresh;
🤖 Avoid the "bot effect" by opting for a personalized email signed by a human;
❤️ Create an emotional connection or sense of belonging and leverage your brand values.
💙 Bigblue Tips
Like CAVAL, From Future, or Cabaïa, use the Bigblue tracking page to collect customer reviews.
🐱 Save Kittens like Cabaïa
Everyone loves cute animals and honourable causes. Cabaïa bets on collecting user-generated content and boosting engagement with the #MartyChallenge 💥
For each photo customers post with Cabaïa products and their four-legged friends, the brand pledges to donate €1 to the animal protection association.
With this clever technique, Cabaïa has donated €115,000, and their hashtag has nearly 10,000 posts on Instagram.
The brand creates an inventory of ultra-engaging photos ready to be published on its Instagram account.
📸 Transform Your Customers into Paparazzi like Balzac
Balzac has discovered a foolproof technique for collecting UGC.
Every month, the brand offers €150 in-store credit in exchange for photos of their products spotted on the street 😳

🏋️ Become Their Best Ally like Gymshark
Gymshark, a sportswear brand, helps members of its community change their lives in 66 days through its Gymshark66 challenge.

Members have access to workouts, unlock unique discounts, are invited to private events, and can try to win exclusive prizes.
Their hashtag has been mentioned over 800,000 times on Instagram, and the brand has more than 4.5 million followers on TikTok.
🚨 Breaking News: An influencer (or brand) followed by over 3 million subscribers generates the equivalent of 481 round trips between Paris and New York in one year.

Newsletter #16 - 8 expert tips to build the perfect product page and boost your D2C Brand's CVR
August 14, 2023
30% of users say they never reach the bottom of a product page.
So to optimise your conversion rate, you need to ensure your customers find all the information they need at a glance, without scrolling.
To help you out, I'm sharing 8 tips from the most beautiful brands to create the perfect product page 👌
And if, like me, you have more of a visual memory, I've added an illustrated cheat sheet at the end of the newsletter ⬇️
0️. Get into m-commerce
I recently read that by the end of 2022, 53.3% of French shoppers (or over 22 million) had placed orders from their smartphones.
By the end of 2023, more than 43% of total e-commerce sales are expected to be made on mobile devices.
To provide your customers with the best possible experience, make sure that your page is optimised for small screens, that it loads quickly and that your navigation is smooth.
1️. Take care of your product names like Asphalte.
Your product name is the first thing users see when they arrive on your page.
Like Asphalte, choose a descriptive and catchy name that immediately communicates the product's value and reassures your customers.
By opting for "Ultimate T-shirt" rather than "white cotton T-shirt", Asphalte has been able to increase its conversion rate by 78%.
⭐️ Tips for creating great product names
To get your visitors to click every time, here are some magic words that appeal to the 7 universal emotions:
-> Vanity: brillant, sexy, awesome, unbeatable…
-> Laziness: guide, simple, less than, child’s play...
-> Gluttony: enjoy, benefit, huge...
-> Urgency: don’t miss, more than...
-> Humour: funny, amusing, original...
-> Trust: approved, tested, authentic, for life...
-> Envy: for you, personalised, unique...
2️. Display your customer's reviews like Détective Box.
92% of online shoppers trust a brand recommended by their peers, and 90% believe that positive product reviews influence their purchase decision.
So showing your customer reviews is a real hack to gain their trust and triple your conversion rate 🚀
Like Detective Box, let your visitors know what your users think of your products directly on your product page.
💙 Bigblue Tips
Our order tracking emails have an average open rate of 74%. Like Detective Box, Unbottled or Lashilé, set them up to automatically collect customer reviews with every order.
Level-up my post-purchase emails →
3️. Optimise your add to cart button...
Think BIG and use contrasting colours to ensure your customers can't miss it!
To take your user experience up a notch, I would also recommend :
- Opting for a static button, which is always within the user's thumb's reach,
- Including the price directly (to save space on mobile ☝️),
- Offering a quick purchase button to improve the buying experience.
4️... and display the fastest delivery date like OMA&ME
Offering fast delivery is a must for your customers, and 41% of them expect to be able to choose a two-day delivery.
Offering fast delivery options and an estimated delivery date directly on your product page is a great way to reassure your visitors and encourage them to order.
💙 Bigblue tips
OMA&ME uses Bigblue’s Fast Tag to highlight to its customers the fastest delivery date according to their location and enhance their pre-shopping experience.
Learn more about Fast Tag →
5️. Offer free delivery, like Si Si La Paillette.
9 out of 10 customers admit that free delivery encourages them to add more items to their basket; their orders are, on average, 30% higher.
Like Si Si La Paillette, opt for this strategy to increase your conversion rate and your customers' average basket.
6️. Wow them with your images like Cabaïa.
67% of consumers consider the quality of a product photo as "very important" in their purchase decision.
Here is a checklist for ideal product images:
- Prioritise high definition,
- Present the specificities of your products (materials, benefits, etc.),
- Offer images or videos of your products in real-life situations,
- Add User Generated Content to increase your conversion by up to 6%.
7️. Offer your products in batches like Unbottled.
Products sold in batches have an AOV 42% higher than those sold individually.
Offering your products in batches and with a discounted price is a great way to increase your average order value by encouraging your customers to buy multiple items.
💙 Bigblue tips
Unbotted uses Bigblue to quickly set up their product bundles and ship them smoothly.
8️. Reassure your customers like Tediber.
Reassuring your customers at the time of purchase is crucial, even more so if the item's price is high.
Like Tediber, reassure your customers in an instant by offering :
- Different payment options (payment in chunks, "buy now, pay later", etc.),
- Free returns,
- A "satisfied or refunded" guarantee after a certain period.
🎁 The perfect product page cheat sheet
Because a picture is worth a thousand words, I'm sharing with you, as promised, the illustrated version of an ideal product page made by Tim Dumain, the CEO of Bigblue.
Newsletter #15 - 6 proven strategies to optimise your pre-purchase experience and boost your conversion rate
August 14, 2023
Did you know that it takes just five milliseconds for a user to decide whether or not your e-commerce site is trustworthy? That's a pretty short window of time to make a good impression!
If you don't manage to convince them in those first few milliseconds, not only might you miss out on a sale, but you could also end up losing £29 in acquisition costs. Yikes!
In this email, I will share six strategies to make your e-commerce site more user-friendly and turn those visitors into loyal customers. 🤝
1️. Focus on speed
Did you know a page should ideally load in under 1 second, regardless of the device or connection quality? That's right! And for every second it takes to load, you risk losing 25% of potential customers.
To ensure that your website is lightning-fast and provides a seamless browsing experience for your visitors, I recommend using these three free tools:
- GTmetrix: this tool allows you to analyse your website's speed across different channels and identifies what's causing any performance issues.
- Web dev: use this tool to measure the quality of a page on your site and receive recommendations on how to improve it.
- RequestMap: to remove too greedy applications and optimise your loading time.
2️. Optimise your product pages with the right images and descriptions
Optimise your product pages with the right photos and descriptions
30% of users will not scroll to the bottom of your product pages.
According to the experts at BlackSwan, your visitors should be able to see at a glance:
- The name of the product,
- Good quality photos that present the product correctly,
- Its price,
- A short description with important information (composition, benefits, manufacturing, etc.),
- A clear and visible call to action.
If you lack inspiration, you can take inspiration from those of CAVAL ⤵️
3️. Adopt a mobile-first approach
This is a must for a good user experience.
In January this year, 65,5 % of online traffic was on mobile. Moreover, 57% of Internet users say they would not recommend a mobile brand whose site needs optimisation.
And to check that your e-commerce meets all the criteria, you need to test!
- Check your navigation and responsive design on a 5" screen,
- Make sure that the important information on the product page is visible,
- Test the payment steps to judge if the process is simple and smooth.
⏱ Bonus tip
To go faster, you can also use the Webmobilefirst extension to test the responsive design of your e-commerce on mobile, tablet and even connected watch!
4️. Display User Generated Content
I discuss it regularly in this newsletter: content your customers generate is an ultra-powerful conversion lever.
90% of users say a positive product review influences their purchasing decision.
Integrating them directly into your product pages is an effective way to reassure your prospect at a glance and encourage them to place an order.
Lashilé uses this strategy to increase the conversion rate of their product pages... and collect more reviews! One of their best-selling products even has over 1600 ratings, photos and reviews.
👩🏻🎤 The ultimate guide to User Generated Content
In case you missed it, we've written a playbook dedicated to UGC. We reveal to you for free more than fifty tips, tools and e-commerce brand strategies to create, collect, distribute UGC and explode your sales 🔥
Get the playbook for free
5️. Engage with customers via live chat
51% of users are more likely to order from a brand that offers this service.
To boost the effectiveness of your chat, I share some best practices:
- Identify triggers and set up your chat so that it helps your customer at the right time,
- Humanise your responses as much as possible to avoid the robot effect,
- Pre-write your messages to optimise your response time,
- Offer self-service after-sales so customers can solve their requests independently and free up your support teams' time.
🛠 Bigblue tools
Most CRMs like Gorgias ou Zendesk offer chat functionality. Alternatively, to take personalization up a level, I recommend the tools Attentive or Charles to send your product recommendations via SMS and WhatsApp.
6️. Recovering abandoned shopping carts with email sequences
About 70% of users abandon their shopping carts 🛒
With good copywriting and well-configured workflows, Les Secrets de Loly automatically recovers up to 20% of its abandoned carts.
- Trigger: the user has entered his email but abandoned his cart at checkout
- Email 1 after 15 min (SMS 1 after 30 min): a short urgent message that sends your customer back to their basket.
- Email 2 after 1 to 2 hours (SMS 2 after 1 day): a reminder of the product's advantages or your mission + addition of a first promotion (to be defined according to your strategy and your margins).
- Email 3 after 24 hours: specify that this is the last email and add a second, more attractive promotion.
