Targeted marketing reaches new heights
To help Rocky Mountain Power meet their annual kWh savings goals, CLEAResult launched a pilot program and direct marketing campaign offering free advanced power strips to high-potential customers.
Based in Salt Lake City, Rocky Mountain Power provides electric service to over a million customers across Utah, Idaho and Wyoming. After year-end forecasts indicated a savings gap in the portfolio, Rocky Mountain Power and CLEAResult collaborated on a gap strategy to boost the non-lighting kWh savings in Wyoming and Idaho to reach the ambitious savings goals.
Targeting the most high-potential customers, CLEAResult sent a select group of previous participants in Rocky Mountain Power’s Wyoming and Idaho residential programs a series of automated emails and direct mailers offering free advanced power strips worth $80 each. Warm, appreciative messaging helped shape the offer into a personalized thank you gift for their participation.
The email included a link to a simple landing page that made it easy for customers to claim the offer. “Limited-time only” messaging provided a sense of urgency, and friendly follow-up emails encouraged further engagement with step-by-step installation instructions. The results blew away all expectations, with an incredible 24 percent conversion rate leading to the distribution of over 7,200 energy-saving power strips.
