Daraz messaging strategy solves the major challenges retail and ecommerce brands face with CRM marketing & loyalty program engagement
Re-engaging dormant customers is a struggle for lifecycle marketers.
Many people limit, or completely turn off, mobile app notifications on their phones. And even when notifications are turned on, it’s not easy to compete for attention among the many notifications apps send on a daily basis.
With email engagement rates suffering and increasingly limited insights in customer activities, marketers need to find new ways to engage their audiences and increase customer LTV.
So how did messaging help eCommerce marketers at Daraz connect with their audiences and increase order volumes with discounts sent via WhatsApp?
Daraz engages shoppers with a one to one conversational journey across the customer lifecycle
Here’s how Daraz transformed their customer journey from start to finish.
It shows you how to upload CRM contacts to build an audience on WhatsApp, how to engage and qualify them, typical conversion paths, and then how to re-engage them with notifications to increase customer lifetime value.
1 | Upload CRM contacts
using phone numbers to build a directly reachable audience list on WhatsApp Business.
2 | Send notification
to opted-in users to trigger a one to one conversation on WhatsApp.
3 | Qualify and convert
by sending personalized offers in private DMs based on zero party data shared in chat.
4 | Re-engage with notifications
on their preferred messaging app to drive ongoing engagement and upsell them.

Below is an example of how Daraz structures the data from chat to build audience segments and re-engage customers one to one with push notifications from WhatsApp.

Daraz achieved a 7,5% conversion rate from WhatsApp and 41% opt-in for recurring notifications
Daraz launched an automated customer experience on WhatsApp using their already existing CRM data. The eCommerce retailer first uploaded their CRM contacts to WhatsApp, and then built a continuously monetizable audience on the app.
Once uploading their customer list, they were able to send notifications to their audience with customized offers and voucher codes to encourage a repeat purchase. The personalized offers activated a wide range audience, which enabled Daraz to increase its order volume while reducing cost per first order.
Among many successes, in Daraz’s re-engagement campaign they were able to:
- Convert 7.5% of recipients into buyers.
- Generate opt-ins for recurring notifications from 41% of customers.
