Cornbread Hemp is a CBD company dedicated to delivering high-quality CBD products to those looking for help to cope with stress, sleep, and muscle/joint discomfort. Customers can shop a full-spectrum product line designed to help them feel better, all grown exclusively in Kentucky. Cornbread Hemp came to Justuno during the summer of 2020 looking for a pop-up solution capable of effectively targeting audience segments, differentiating traffic sources, and a strong support system to help continued growth.


With Justuno, Cornbread Hemp implemented highly successful foundational promotions (new visitor, exit, and abandoned cart pop-ups) and campaigns targeted by traffic source to dial in messaging both onsite for improved conversion and opt-in rates.

How we did it

Foundational Promotions: New Visitor, Exit, and Cart Abandonment

Cornbread Hemp has had the most success growing their SMS and email database while rescuing sales using the triad of foundational promotions: A new visitor lead capture, an exit offer, and a cart abandonment pop-up. Cornbread Hemp then pairs these with specific automation flows within their ESP to dial in the messaging based on a shopper’s behavior. Since coming to Justuno, Cornbread Hemp’s email database has skyrocketed 200% along with a 50% growth in their SMS lists!

The star of these three pop-ups is their exit offer which, after A/B testing different locations, has driven the most conversions in the corner of the screen. Cornbread Hemp matches the messaging for each exit offer based on the current URL and focuses on a unique selling proposition (USP) for specific products. This helps address potential pain points in a customer’s journey and eases the path to purchase. These exit and cart abandonment pop-ups have worked together to bring Cornbread Hemp’s cart abandonment rate down by 28%! traffic segmentation campaign

When Cornbread Hemp was featured in an article on as one of the top 10 CBD companies in the US, they created an onsite campaign to target visitors clicking through to their website. They built a three-pronged approach:

  • Targeted lead capture with a unique coupon code and mirrored messaging from the blog post
  • Website banner featuring a review, quote, and subtle source reference for social proof and trust-building
  • Exit offer that specifically referenced the same messaging and had a countdown timer to drive action leading to a 4% increase in conversions!

Using traffic source targeting and UTM parameters for these pop-ups, Cornbread Hemp could be sure that only visitors coming from the article would see these and maximize their effectiveness. Overall, the campaign had a 16.5% conversion rate for those engaged by these promotions!

CBD marketing & the importance of return on ad spend (ROAS)

CBD is an exploding industry, which can make marketing it very expensive. It’s crucial that Cornbread Hemp captures every possible dollar of revenue for each campaign. Using Justuno they’re able to create mirrored experiences on their website that reflect the messaging the customer saw before coming to their website. Using UTM tracking parameters Cornbread Hemp has been able to dial in their campaigns so that their conversion rate goes up while acquisition costs go down. One such campaign has been targeting search customers with the term “Full Spectrum CBD Oil” so that once they come to Cornbread Hemp’s site they can see messaging reflecting this search query. These targeting strategies worked so well that their conversion rate for search channel traffic is 11.17% when engaged by a promotion, up 2559.5% when visitors weren’t engaged by a pop-up.

Bringing the tech stack together

Cornbread Hemp uses BigCommerce as their e-commerce platform, which means they have a one-click Justuno integration that can be done in less than five minutes! Combined with their ESP, Klaviyo, Cornbread Hemp’s tech stack is fully integrated with Justuno so customers can begin receiving on and offsite messages quickly and effectively. They started seeing results immediately and after a few months of Justuno Essential were so happy with the value of our platform and team, they upgraded to Justuno Plus–just in time for the Holidays.
