Manchester, CT – January 16, 2024 – Bob’s Discount Furniture, one of the fastest growing omnichannel furniture retailers in the country, was recently recognized as a finalist in ModernRetail’s 2023 awards for “Best Use of Emerging Technology.” The ModernRetail Awards recognize the companies and campaigns modernizing retail in the digital age.

Bob’s tested PebblePost’s Optimized Audiences product to re-engage current and former customers, increase customer lifetime value, and drive incremental return on ad spend (iROAS). Bob’s provided PebblePost with a targeted list of top customers enabling PebblePost’s algorithm to identify a sizable segment of customers with a high likelihood to respond, and thus make a significant repeat purchase. PebblePost then sent Bob’s-designed direct mailers to these audiences.

The results exceeded not just Bob’s goal of delivering more than 25x incremental return, but also everyone’s expectations. Based on the success of this campaign, Bob’s continues to run customer re-engagement programs with PebblePost using this technology.

“Bob’s is continually on the lookout for new technologies to improve the shopping experience for our customers,” said David Levin, SVP of Customer Experience and Digital Transformation. “Our partnership with PebblePost has driven accretive results tied to our company’s re-engagement strategies. It’s an honor to be included as a finalist in this year’s ModernRetail Awards among other forward-thinking brands and retailers who utilize technology to better connect with customers.”

Other finalists in the “Best Use of Emerging Technology” category this year included Best Buy and Lowe’s. To view the full shortlist, click here.
