Selligent Marketing Cloud, the intelligent omnichannel marketing and experience cloud platform, announced that it is the outright winner for Best Retail Campaign in the 2020 DMN Awards for its work with Vitacost.com (a Kroger company) on a recent personalized kinetic email campaign. Selligent is also named a finalist in the Marketing Cloud Company category. All winners will be announced and honored at the 2020 DMN Awards ceremony in New York City on February 20.

The Selligent-powered Vitacost campaign was recognized for its successful approach to content-rich marketing leveraging Selligent’s robust, omnichannel marketing platform. The Vitacost marketing team leveraged Selligent to execute, manage and analyze its “Mystery Sale” kinetic email campaign, which directed customers to special landing pages to claim exclusive coupons for use on Vitacost.com. Vitacost created a new high-impact and interactive email campaign that generated immediate ROI and ensured that customers have a consistent and relevant experience.

The campaign delivered incredible results:
- 53 percent increase in click-to-open rates
