Synchronizing Contact

The first step to run an email/SMS marketing campaign is to prepare a contact list. SmartPush conveniently synchronizes the Customers section of your SHOPLINE admin panel with the Contacts section of SmartPush. You can view your entire contact list by going to the Contacts > All section.

SmartPush also allows you to import and export contacts for your marketing campaigns. For more information, refer to Import&Export Contacts.

 


 

Creating Segments

In addition to sending messages to all your contacts, you can leverage customer segmentation to reach specific groups with tailored content for targeted messaging. This approach improves conversion rates for your target audience.

 


 

Creating Marketing Campaigns

Next, create marketing campaigns. For email marketing, go to the Campaigns section, click Create campaign and click Create email within the Email marketing campaign block.

In the campaign configuration page, follow the prompts to fill in details like the campaign name, recipients, email subject, preview text, sender information, and content. You can also enable advanced UTM tracking or specify the preferred language for your email.

Here are some key points to remember:

Campaign Name: This serves as your internal reference and can be independent of the email content. For example, "New Product Promotion for Active Customers - Nov 17, 2023".

Recipients: Choose all subscribers, pre-defined segments, or exclude uninterested customers. Segmentation allows for more precise targeting and enhances marketing results.

Subject Line: This is the first impression for recipients and significantly impacts open rates. Craft clear, concise, and engaging subject lines. SmartPush offers a library of recommended subject lines for various marketing scenarios. Just click Recommended subject and select from the library.

Sender Information: Utilize your brand name for better brand promotion and recognition. Use a customer service email address for replies to facilitate communication and improve sales success. SmartPush provides a default public sender address, but using your own domain name can improve deliverability.
