You can customize templates, drag-and-drop builder features help you design the perfect message without any technical expertise needed! With their segmentation feature on hand, you’ll be able to deliver targeted content based off of engagements happening within your newsletter so nothing goes unnoticed.

Question: What are journeys?

Answer: A journey is a series of steps that can be triggered by any subscriber-related event. There are three types: Delay, Email and Condition. Delay means to add some time in between the first step and the following one so they will happen closer together or at different times than what was originally planned for them; email sends an automated message after each subscribed action with information about it; condition has specific rules like ’if this happens then do something else.’

Question: What are smart transactional emails?

Answer: With smart transactional emails, you can make beautiful and responsive email designs quickly. You can also use templates made for your marketing campaigns then tweak them to suit. The output of these messages are hosted by our servers so there’s no need to store the message or images yourself potentially removing the requirement that a website be deployed every time an update is made.

Question: What are classic transactional emails?

Answer: Transactional emails are a necessary part of running any successful business. These emails, which include confirmation messages and order notifications for example, typically require an action from the recipient (e.g., following a link to complete their purchase). However not all transactional email is created equal! There’s classic transactional email that you host on your own servers - when sending this type of message content stays stored at our servers while metadata goes back with your company once it has been viewed or clicked by recipients within 30 days after being sent. Classic transactions also allow grouping so you can get granular reporting data without having to use multiple APIs!

Question: What campaigns can I run within Campaign Monitor?

Answer: A campaign involves sending a single email to your recipients, either immediately or by scheduling it to send later. Both types of campaigns you can create and send with our application include a regular campaign (sent once), A/B test campaigns (send twice: one as HTML and the other in plain text). You’re not able to use any different formats outside of HTML or text like PDFs, Microsoft Publisher files — only these two file types are supported.

Question: How do I choose a ‘from’ name?

Answer: You need to choose a name or title that will be recognizable to your subscribers. Often, this is the company’s name or perhaps the product/service you are providing information about for them. In most situations it’s better if you use an organization like ‘ABC Company’ rather than using someone’s individual identity such as Madonna unless they ARE their own brand and there is no other logical choice. If so, follow up with a comma then ABC Corporation (or whatever entity) afterwards.

Question: Why are no-reply addresses not a good option?

Answer: It is important not to appear uninterested when sending emails. Sending from an anonymous email address will make recipients feel ignored and can be frustrating if they need to reach out for something, or even bad news in the long-term as it may affect delivery rates of your message. The way a user engages with your email - including replying back - determines where you’ll end up on their inbox; putting an e-mail address out there could attract its fair share of autoreplies and inappropriate responses while also opening the door open for meaningful interaction with customers who are eager enough to have contact through this medium.
