Enhancing Customer Experience

  • Build dynamic content into your messages, automatically replacing entire sections based on each recipient’s unique behaviors, interests and needs.
  • Populate messages with peer reviews, customer testimonials and comments from social communities unique to each recipient’s interests and/or past buying history.
  • Create “if-then” messaging tracks within your email and nurture campaigns, sending contacts down different content paths depending on their behaviors.
  • Cross sell/upsell by recommending accessory items or complementary items for each product in cart
