About Easy Sleeper

Easy Sleeper is on a mission to improve lives by revolutionizing how we sleep. With a revolutionary pillow and other sleep-related products, Easy Sleeper has seen great success making it easier for people to sleep.

Easy Sleeper has been working with Will Laurenson, Customer Experience Optimisation specialist and an industry expert.

I joined Easy Sleeper as a consultant to help them optimize the buying experience through conversion optimization and marketing automation. - Will Laurenson

Why did Easy Sleeper start SMS marketing?

As they grew, the Easy Sleeper team realized SMS marketing would be a great way to interact with their customers and to build a community that most D2C brands often neglect building. As quite a low-frequency purchase, it was essential they got as many people through the door as possible.

I've always enjoyed using SMS as a marketer, there's so much opportunity to enhance the customer experience, and so few brands are using it. It's got pretty much a 100% open rate, so if you get the message right it's so powerful for conversion. - Will Laurenson

The Cartloop Strategy

Let’s be honest: discounts work, but over-relying on them hurts your business in the long run. From day one of working with Easy Sleeper, they knew that relying on discounts wouldn’t be the best way to build fulfilling customer relationships.

Unlike most brands that attempt to increase conversions by offering a discount code in the first SMS, we took a different approach focused on building new relationships.

Our approach with Easy Sleeper customers is focused on human interaction and support. There are 3 main steps to our process:

  1. Address the concern/question
  2. Use Selling Points
  3. Provide a discount code

Let’s look at how we interact with customers in detail.

1. Address the concern/question

Here we offer assistance, making sure everything is covered quickly and correctly

2. Use Product-Related Selling Points

3. Use Brand-Related Selling Points

Works amazing when shoppers have certain complaints. (ex: shipping)

4. Provide a 10% off discount code

What are the top benefits Easy Sleeper gets with Cartloop?

Obviously the first is sales, Cartloop has a fantastic conversion rate, even after we pushed the discount right to the back of the flow. By really pushing the benefits of the pillow, and highlighting some key information such as free delivery & returns customers were convinced to give it a go. Second, would be the insights and finding out why customers were abandoning the purchase in the first place. The vast majority of customers said that the shipping cost was too high, and instead of panicking about shipping and lowering the threshold or whatever, we decided to push bundles via the SMS experience and highlight the saving they get on them. This worked really well at pushing up AOV as well as helping with conversion. - Will Laurenson


With our approach focused on building relationships with Easy Sleeper's customer base, the results have been outstanding. We noticed the discount code messages have a higher engagement rate, but the ROI difference between the discount and support approaches is minimal.

So what does this mean? It means that Easy Sleeper gets a great ROI by focusing on improving the customer experience with personalized messages and campaigns. So instead of reducing their margins with discount codes, they can be profitable by focusing on supporting their customers. This allows them to strategically use discounts later in the customer journey and improves their profit margin.


  • The discount code approach has a higher engagement rate
  • The ROI difference between the discount approach and support approach is not so different
  • While the discount approach has higher ROI, the support approach is more fulfilling for clients
  • Campaigns are seeing higher ROI with the support approach as shoppers are not used to getting discount codes
  • Powerful products are selling themselves. Sometimes they just need a push
