Increased Engagement

Get more engagement with an automated welcome email.

Subscribers who receive a welcome email show 33% more engagement with a brand.*

Send a welcome email when new contacts join your mailing list through a web sign-up form or any of the other sign-up methods.

If you have multiple contact lists, you have the choice to send a single welcome email to all of them, or send targeted welcome emails to each list.

Think of your welcome email as an “elevator pitch” to introduce who you are, what you do, and what subscribers can expect from you.

After you create a welcome email, it’s time to activate it and start sending it to contacts who join your mailing list.

Create a welcome series.

If your new contacts have to wait for your regularly scheduled email, you may lose the momentum started when someone makes the decision to join your email contact list. Create an automated welcome series that goes out whenever a new contact joins your list.

Products are based on browsing behaviors, popularity of items, or influenced by similar new-user data, so you’re sending the best incentives to buy.
