Velocity scripting is a powerful tool that can be used in marketing emails to enhance their effectiveness and improve the customer experience. In this blog post, we’ll explore the marketing, strategic, and flexible benefits of using Velocity scripting in marketing emails and the additional benefits of having Zirous implement Velocity scripting for you.
Personalization: Velocity scripting allows you to add personalized content to your marketing emails, such as the recipient’s name or location. This can increase the relevance of the email and improve its engagement rate.
Example: A clothing retailer can use Velocity scripting to add the recipient’s name to the subject line and body of their promotional emails. The retailer can also use the recipient’s location to display weather-appropriate clothing options.
With Velocity scripting, you can display dynamic content that is tailored to the recipient’s preferences, behaviors, or interests. This helps you to deliver a more relevant and engaging experience to each customer.
One of our clients in the Medical sector asked us to create email footers that show the correct email signature based on who owns that person’s account. We created a dynamic section of the footer that shows the first name, last name, email, and photo of the correct sales owner. We also have clients that do something similar in newsletter campaigns that will show the correct contact information based on dynamic content based on the interest data associated with the end user’s email address. We allow the clients to create one email, and that email will dynamically change its content based on the end user’s data.

Improved Segmentation: Velocity scripting makes it easier to segment your email list based on specific criteria, such as purchase history or interests. This allows you to deliver targeted content that resonates with each group of customers.
A travel company can use Velocity scripting to segment their email list based on the recipient’s travel preferences, such as beach vacations or adventure travel. The company can then send targeted emails to each group, highlighting travel destinations and packages that align with their interests.
Velocity scripting can be used to automate complex email workflows, such as abandoned cart reminders or win-back campaigns. This saves time and ensures that each customer receives the right message at the right time.
An online retailer can use Velocity scripting to automate abandoned cart reminders. When a customer adds items to their cart but does not complete the purchase, an automated email can be sent reminding them of the items left in their cart and offering a discount to complete the purchase.
Zirous helped a B2C company update their Marketo email send capability by dynamically generating quote content after a form fill. In order to access this company’s unique custom data objects, we used Velocity scripting to access and dynamically show the correct information for each email. We were also able to set up automatic email confirmations based on their form fill.

The Velocity scripting fits anywhere in the email, in this case augmenting the email template with specific order data. Clients have asked for exact updates all the way to fully generated emails.
Easy Customization: Velocity scripting is a flexible and customizable tool that can be adapted to meet the specific needs of your marketing campaigns. You can easily change the content, design, or targeting of your emails without having to start from scratch.
A restaurant can use Velocity scripting to create custom emails for different events, such as Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day. The restaurant can easily switch out the email content and design to match the occasion, without having to start from scratch each time.
Velocity scripting is compatible with a wide range of email marketing platforms and can be integrated with other tools, such as CRMs and analytics platforms. This makes it easy to implement and manage your marketing campaigns.
A financial services company can use Velocity scripting to integrate their email campaigns with their CRM. This allows the company to pull in customer data, such as recent transactions or account balance, and use it in their email content. The integration also makes it easy to track and analyze the performance of their email campaigns.
Zirous has helped all of our Marketo clients understand and implement campaign and email analytics. Together we have shown our clients how powerful and impactful Velocity scripting can be by comparing the before and after analytics of implementing Velocity in their marketing campaigns. On average, by adding personalization and exact client data per interaction, Salesforce confirms nearly one fourth of marketers achieved higher retention and a spike in revenue higher than 20% due to personalization.
