Movavi is a global software company that offers multiple programs for photo and video editing. Its key markets include the U.S., Latin America, Europe, India, and South Korea. Movavi’s products have been localized into dozens of languages and are available on all major platforms and devices. All of these factors play a huge role in their marketing and communications, resulting in multiple segments and languages, within each marketing flow. 
In 2022 the company decided to transform its customer relationship management by implementing an omnichannel marketing hub, consolidating all customer data and marketing into a single platform. Now Movavi effectively handles over 60 marketing flows, regularly sends segmented bulk campaigns, and conducts frequent A/B tests to learn more about its customers and improve communications.
This story is the first in a series of case studies on Movavi’s marketing. In this story, we’ll go into detail on the flows that generate 91% of Movavi’s email net revenue.

91% of email revenue comes from flows, meaning they require no manual effort from the marketing team. Thus, even in months when Movavi does not send any bulk campaigns, these flows will consistently generate the revenue equivalent to this 91%

Why Movavi Implemented Maestra

In 2022, Movavi decided to implement an omnichannel marketing hub to transform its marketing and customer relationship management. Movavi selected Maestra based on a thorough evaluation of 20 criteria, including the following:
  • Data management. Movavi was looking for an augmented user profile with advanced filtering and segmentation capabilities.
  • Functionality. A wide range of modules for emails, mobile and web push notifications, along with webhooks, was essential to cater to present and future needs.
  • A/B testing capabilities.
  • User-friendly and convenient reports.
  • Reliability and IT Security.
  • Cost-effectiveness.

How 60 Flows Help Movavi Capture Every Stage of the Customer Lifecycle

Movavi’s marketing flows are designed to identify customer interests from the moment they sign up and offer them relevant products. Communications are tailored depending on multiple factors:
  • The program the customer has bought.
  • The trial program they have downloaded.
  • The webpage where they provided their email.
  • The product they have shown interest in during email surveys.
Furthermore, Movavi’s product promotion strategy relies heavily on trial-based approaches, where users try out software before making a purchase. This means that their customer base can be split into three key segments:
  • Newsletter subscribers without a trial or subscription,
  • Trial users,
  • Customers that have purchased software.
These flows are structured in a way that the offers for these segments can differ within each email series. A good example of this is the product series.

Product Series

This series of six emails is sent to all three key segments: newsletter subscribers, trial users, and customers. Depending on the recipient, the content is slightly modified. For example, subscribers are displayed trial buttons, trial users are displayed purchase buttons and customers are displayed links to learn more about the product. Furthermore, these segments get different additional offers, recommendations, and sometimes even completely different letters
A sample of the email campaigns sent within the flow. The first campaign is sent to recipients who are considering making a purchase, the second is sent to those who have already purchased the product
Moreover, if a customer’s status changes while they are receiving the product series, the content of the series will also change accordingly. For instance, a customer might receive the first email of a series as a subscriber, where they are offered a product for purchase. If they make a purchase, they will then continue to receive the series as a customer, receiving guidance on using the purchased product with a showcase of complementary software. It was the implementation of Maestra that allowed this flow logic to be realized.

Lead capture

Movavi uses a variety of different lead capture pop-ups (these are set up through another marketing tool). Depending on their life cycle stage, customers may be offered discounts, gifts, guides, and more in exchange for their email address.
For instance, Movavi’s Effect Store (where customers can purchase extra video editing features, such as effects, stickers, and transitions) displays a pop-up when a customer has browsed content for a prolonged period of time.
The pop-up offers to send customers an email with a collection of the most popular effects

Abandoned View Flows

Abandoned view flows are sent when a user demonstrates interest in a product: visits the product page, “Buy Now” page, or shopping cart — but does not complete the purchase. At the same time, the message sending frequency is limited to prevent communication overload.

Sales and Promotions

Movavi runs sales a few times a year. Email flows are sent across all locales and for all user segments (customers, trial users, and newsletter subscribers).
