Welcome Emails for E-commerce Stores: Inspiring Examples and Tips

If you own an e-commerce store, you know how important it is to make a great first impression on your customers. One of the best ways to do this is through a welcome email. Welcome emails have open rates of up to 50% on average and can generate significant revenue for your business. In this post, we'll share some inspiring examples of welcome emails and give you tips on how to create your own.

Examples of Inspiring Welcome Emails

  1. Tiny Tassel
    This welcome email reflects the brand of Tiny Tassel perfectly. It has a note from the owner, Mimi, a welcome code, and categories of products to shop. It's interesting to see how this email packs in a lot of information while still working. To test what works best for your audience, you can try sending one email with just a code and another with more information to see which one gets more engagement.

  2. Gingiber
    This email follows a similar format to Tiny Tassel, highlighting the owner, telling the brand story, and sharing the main categories. It also has a "why Gingiber" section that helps the customer connect with the brand.

  3. Ponderlily
    This welcome email is interesting because it offers two freebies - a discount and a sneak peek of a product. The introduction is fantastic, but there is quite a bit of textual information. I do like the the "what you can expect from us" section which I don't see stated as clearly in other welcome emails. I also like that the white-listing instructions are provided - to ensure that their emails land in your inbox every time. 👌🏽

  4. Uju Lwami Creations
    This welcome email is for a jewelry company and highlights the reasons to shop with the company. The email is designed to build a connection with the customer and create a sense of exclusivity. Did I mention that we designed this email as part of our Klaviyo Intensive? Check out the case study here.
