For more than 60 years, Leifheit has been one of the leading suppliers of household products in Europe. Based in Germany and operating in several countries worldwide, Leifheit is known for their high-quality products that make housekeeping easy for consumers.
Leifheit is an international company with a longstanding tradition, where high quality and innovation have always come first. For many years, the brand operated in the B2B model, selling products through distributors, and recently launched the B2C channel, which turned out to be successful. From that moment, our online stores use the edrone marketing platform, which effectively activates our customers.Katarzyna BronowskaE-commerce and Marketing Manager at Leifheit Polska
Although traditionally focused on B2B, e-commerce is currently their second largest distribution channel, behind only hypermarkets. In 2020, their B2C online operations accounted for 19% of their 270 million EUR revenue, up from 16% in the previous year. This is a result of their own Online Marketing and e-commerce efforts combined with a general trend of e-commerce growth. Currently their online store is their second (after traditional stores) source of distribution. It gives the brand amazing opportunities but comes with its own challenges too.

Leifheit’s products are highly complementary to one another; therefore, it was important to have an effective way of recommending products based on each customers’ interests and shopping history.
edrone’s Recommendations scenario takes into account all the products a given user has viewed, added to cart and/or purchased, and then uses Machine Learning to sends emails recommending other relevant products – with increasingly better results.
Machine knows best!
Average Open Rate of 61%, and for every 1,000 emails sent, Leifheit recovers over 3,700 EUR in revenue
Using edrone’s Recover Abandoned Cart automation, Leifheit Germany has been able to recover otherwise lost customers.
These simple yet powerful emails are designed using our Drag’n’Drop Editor.
For every 1,000 emails sent using this automation scenario, Leifheit Poland earns an average of 1,254 EUR in revenue
Customers who leave the store with items in their cart are not the only ones that Leifheit is able to engage with.
By simply viewing a product on their website, a subscriber might later get an email with a reminder for that product and other relevant recommendations, effectively turning prospect customers into buyers.
Average Open Rate of 73% and a Conversion Rate over 10%
Leifheit Germany takes full advantage of customer wishlists, making sure they don’t miss the opportunity to sell to a customer that is literally waiting to buy.

For Leifheit Germany, these emails provide 5,500 EUR in earnings for every 1,000 emails sent.
That’s the power of sending the right message at the right time!
