Marketing Automation

Marketing Automation allows you to send an automated email or email series in response to a trigger condition pre-defined in an automation workflow. The trigger can be related to customer behavior, preferences, or other personal/demographic information.

  • Sending a birthday email with a special offer or discount 
  • Triggering a welcome email when new subscribers join your email list 
  • Sending an onboarding email series to new customers (an important part of your CRM strategy)
  • Automated drip campaigns
