The Christmas campaign of Twilio that closed numerous deals

by Janne

Did you know that it’s five to 25 times cheaper to retain an existing customer than it is to acquire a new one?

Customer loyalty is one of the key focus points for stable and predictable revenue generation. Not only focussing on customer acquisition is the key for a long term business success. Showing existing customers you really care and appreciate their business should be on top of your to do’s.

And that's exactly what Twilio did. Twillio-box

A tailormade surprise

Twilio wanted to surprise their key accounts in the EMEA region with a special branded Twilio winter package. In that way their clients knew that Twilio was thinking about them. 

The package contained a beanie and a pair of coding gloves.

As a big tech company working mainly with enterprises, it's very difficult to think of something new that will impress many clients or employees.

Together, we designed knitted coding gloves and a beanie. These items were packed in a special recycled box to ship out in the week before Christmas.
As the cherry on the cake we added a personalized Christmas card which also invited the clients to the conference in San Francisco.
