Comrad is for health-conscious people on the move. They are for the daily pavement pounders, the challenge-chasers, the everyday trailblazers, creators, the passionate, the dreamers and travelers, and they are building a community around practical, everyday wellness.
As a startup brand, Comrad’s in-house team needed an agency of laser-focused email experts with a track record of proven success. In April 2018, Comrad Socks teamed up with Tinuiti to evaluate their program needs and grow quickly.

Goal 1: Increase Email Program Revenue (From Flows & Calendar Sends)
Prior to working with Tinuiti, Comrad’s emails were developed and launched without much overarching strategy or consistent workflow. We worked with Comrad to develop a customized channel strategy along with specific initiatives to reach their overall goals. Starting in April 2018, we implemented a process-oriented workflow and significantly improved their intentional calendar planning for the year ahead. Ultimately, working directly with Comrad’s team allowed us to complete 30+ projects and increase average monthly calendar revenue by 1,939%.
Goal 2: Continual Growth of Email List with Engaged Contacts
Initially, we found that Comrad’s email list was pulled together from a handful of different sources. Our team was able to identify untapped opportunities to acquire new email sign-ups, keeping a steady stream of well-qualified contacts flowing into their database. In order to keep this growing list engaged, the Tinuiti team revamped their welcome series to help educate prospective customers about the brand, building a relationship with subscribers early on. Tinuiti’s in-house Creative Services Team also assisted with the buildout of new email creative to promote Comrad’s “visual voice”. Engagement was kept high through intentional planning of Comrad’s email calendar, keeping in touch with subscribers more regularly, and finding the right cadence of messaging to minimize opt outs.

Finally, we leveraged our email marketing expertise to create customized automated journeys in every stage of the customer life cycle. These workflows, combined with a new bundling product approach, resulted in a 112% lift in repeat customers and a +38% increase in AOV (as of May 2019).
“Our Tinuiti Client Team collaborates seamlessly with Comrad to execute on the email channel vision and beyond. This collaboration makes us feel like a true part of their internal marketing team and fosters the trust and creativity needed to continue to elevate their program, while also making our weekly calls productive and enjoyable. We genuinely love brainstorming with Andy and Jason on what’s next for Comrad and how to reach their company goals.”Emily Collins Strategist, CRM & Email Tinuiti
