How Built a Dynamic Engagement Strategy That Increases Retention

In line with their commitment to simplify and personalize the home-buying experience, set out to create a dynamic messaging campaign that would alert customers about new listings without inundating them with messages. The team began by segmenting their user base based on attributes like app usage and engagement levels. This laid the groundwork for a personalized approach. They also ensured they did not overwhelm their audience with too many messages by defining a rule that blocked the sending of emails to users who have already interacted with the message via a push notification. then used Canvas Flow to create a dynamic campaign that allowed for the delivery of messages across various channels. Users were directed to specific variants of the Canvas based on their specific attributes and the channels they were subscribed to, and if they had the mobile app or not. From there, they applied multiple rules. For example, users who had the app installed received the same message via a push and email with two variants: A) they receive the message at the same time for both channels or b) they receive the push first and if they don’t open it, three minutes later they receive the email.

To send more relevant messages to these cohorts, Immobiliare leveraged Braze Alloys technology partner Mixpanel. Users were added and removed from different cohorts in real time based on their interactions with email, push, and in-app messages. With Braze and Mixpanel, Immobiliare is able to offer the best combination of messages and channels based on the actual behaviors of the users. Some users prefer to receive a push notification and an email instantaneously; others only an email, once per day. Additionally, if they receive a push notification and do not click on it, they’re sent a follow-up email after a few minutes. continuously monitored campaign performance, analyzed user responses, and adjusted strategy accordingly to refine content, timing, and channel selection for maximum impact.

“Braze offers a direct way to influence the value metrics of our platform, like the number of listings viewed and the number of leads generated. At the same time, we have reduced the operative costs to manage and maintain all the multiple campaigns for our millions of users… So in a nutshell, with Braze, we have a great balance between value generated and the costs to keep the platform running and continuously improving.”
