Piper Rosenshein, Director Retention Marketing, Barnes & Noble: How Barnes &Noble Retains a 60% Open Rate on a Daily Email Campaign

Barnes and Noble sometimes seems like one of the last remaining big book sellers whose brick and mortar stores are still as crowded as ever. That’s because the retailer had made huge efforts to diversify its offerings and its marketing to encourage traffic to Piper Rosenshein, Director of Retention Marketing at B&N, email is the connective tissue that drives that traffic, and is used as a vehicle to drive people online and in store, based on lots of relevant targeting and promotional efforts. One email campaign the company runs called the “Nook Daily Find,” gives customers who own B&N’s Nook tablet reader the opportunity to purchase a book at around 75% off the original price, for that day only.
