Client Experience

A MULTI-CHANNEL APPROACH

Data-Driven Marketing

Welcomemat was founded on concept that understanding data and gaining access to data can lead to more strategic marketing efforts that drive more revenue and growth while reducing wasted ad exposure. Welcomemat has developed a car wash member look-a-like model that allows clients to target those who are most likely to become heavy retail washers or unlimited members.  

THE FORMULA

Find the “right” customer, invite them to your wash, do a great job for them, and then ask them to join the membership program. When this formula is properly executed you get a “stickier” customer who will stay in your member program longer – starting with the right customer will lead to lower churn and member attrition.

THE STRATEGY

Welcomemat’s car wash marketing strategy begins with capturing your best prospective customers in-and-around your wash location within a certain radius or drive time. By overlaying Welcomemat’s car wash member look-a-like model to an area, we are able to identify those customers with the highest propensity to visit and become club members or frequent washers. Welcomemat’s car wash model is ever-changing and continues to be refined with new car wash data each month.

THE ENGINE

 As new customers are captured and entered in your marketing funnels, Welcomemat’s software works intelligently to react to customer activity and communicate based on actions and membership status. Through email and sms, Welcomemat clients gain direct access to customers in the community.
