About

With Dossier, you don’t have to overpay for luxury. Tired of all the premium fragrances with premium price tags, the brand sought to disrupt the perfume industry by providing consumers with fair alternatives to luxury perfumes. Now everyone can experience the same high-quality scents at a fraction of the cost.

Challenge

Main Takeaways
Dossier turned to SMS marketing to build relationships with customers and drive more sales than ever before.
Dossier’s previous SMS provider was missing key product functionalities, such as revenue-driving flows and the accessible data they needed to create better engagements.
The brand desired an SMS solution that was synergetic with the rest of their tech stack and had a dedicated CSM team to provide best practices.

Dossier looked to SMS for a new engagement channel that could drive more sales and brand awareness, as well as create long-lasting relationships with their customers. As they were already present on email, social, and paid ads, "SMS was the obvious next step" in their eCommerce marketing strategy, says Ines Guien, Co-Founder and VP of Operations at Dossier.

The brand started their SMS marketing journey with a different SMS provider and found the initial results impressive. However, they soon ran into product limitations with this provider when trying to build on their SMS strategy — they wanted to enable more revenue-driving flows (like loyalty status updates), as well send more targeted messages to customers using segmentation.

But SMS was still a newer channel for Dossier, so having a dedicated team to help manage not only the initial launch, but also the ongoing strategy and execution of these goals was essential. At the same time, Dossier was on the hunt for a new reviews product, and their need to consolidate their tech stack and access all of their customer data in one place was growing as fast as their brand. "As our brand was growing, we longed for an SMS solution that was not only synergetic with our tech stack, but also had a team that could help us maximize our success on the channel," says Ines.

So Dossier began their search for a new SMS provider and quickly discovered Yotpo SMSBump, who could offer all these things and more.

Solution

Main Takeaways
Dossier migrated from their previous SMS provider to Yotpo SMSBump to gain integrated data, consistent support, and SMS expertise.
Tech stack consolidation solidified the brand’s decision to transition services.
Dossier now thrives alongside the dedicated Yotpo SMSBump team, who supports their SMS program’s growth.

The decision to migrate to Yotpo SMSBump was easy to make once Dossier learned they could have access to SMS, reviews, and loyalty solutions all through Yotpo’s single platform. This multi-product offering met all of the brand’s needs — bringing valuable customer data from different sources under one roof, alongside expert Customer Success Managers and Strategists who support each product line.

"With Yotpo SMSBump, we have access to more data points and there are more features that help us scale and drive more success with SMS than with our previous provider. That, and having three products under one roof was a dealbreaker for us," says Ines.

From day one Dossier would not only have access to more customer data through Yotpo SMSBump, but also guidance on SMS best practices whenever they needed it. "We needed SMS guidance. We feel good knowing Yotpo SMSBump’s team are experts who can support us and help us grow," says Ines.

Yotpo’s suite of services didn’t disappoint. "Each week we want to know how we can do better, what’s next for our SMS program, and we feel inspired working with Yotpo SMSBump who supports our growth and can help us continue driving even more success," says Ines.

”With Yotpo SMSBump, we always feel supported. We’re not experts, we need SMS guidance and we feel good knowing Yotpo SMSBump’s team are experts who can support us and help us grow.”
