How Preplaced leveraged Mailmodo's spin-the-wheel widget to 5X their conversions


I had used a couple of other alternatives for email marketing, but I must say it's Mailmodo for the win! Through AMP emails, the engagement rate boomed and brought a considerable increase in conversions.

The Focus

Sayali, the Content Marketing Manager at Preplaced, started off with email marketing recently. The emails sent out by Preplaced were boring and saw a low conversion rate. So, Sayali wanted to create better and more engaging emails to drive conversions through email marketing.

We were struggling with email marketing in the beginning because our emails were really boring. We were not getting many clicks from our email campaigns. After finally using AMP emails, I noticed a positive shift in open and click-through rates.”

Sayali was trying out different ways to increase engagement through email marketing and wanted to give interactive emails a shot.

While experimenting with creating interactive emails on Mailmodo’s platform, Sayali spoke to the team who introduced her to the spin-the-wheel widget. The idea of gamifying her emails using an interactive widget intrigued her, and she wanted to use this interactive widget in her future campaigns.

  • She designed her Christmas campaign using the Christmas-themed template from Mailmodo’s template gallery and customized it.

  • She used the spin-the-wheel widget in the emails as a coupon distribution mechanism to send out special holiday discount coupons to her customers. This was an attempt to get meaningful engagement and a good conversion rate.

  • When the customers opened the emails, they got a Christmas-themed wheel to spin inside it, and upon spinning the wheel, they received the holiday discount coupons, which could be redeemed on Preplaced’s website.


This gamified experience delighted the customers, and they ended up using the coupons to purchase sessions from Preplaced.

It was fascinating to see promotional emails getting all the action for a change. On Mailmodo, I could create beautiful and engaging email templates without a graphic designer.

By including the interactive spin-the-wheel widget in the Christmas email campaign, Preplaced was able to boost its user engagement, where the CTOR grew to 10% from 2-4%. They recorded their best sales impact through email marketing, where their conversion rates saw a 5X increase.
