4.How to set trigger-based email
You already know how to import contact lists and create emails. Now we need to make emails send automatically and at the right time.
1. Emails by events. What are they for?
In a nutshell – to work less and get more. You set newsletter once and start communicating with customers “automatically”.
For example, you can thank a person for an order, ask how the purchase processed in the store or remind that customer can get discount card if he makes one purchase. Or make a cross-sell – offer something in addition to the sold product or service.
Such emails work excellent in e-commerce and travel industry.
