The Edge of Tomorrow: Email. Engage. Repeat.

At Sendwithus, we believe that setting up recurring email campaigns should be a walk in the park.

Recurring email campaigns

Schedule recurring campaigns with complete ease!

This is why we’re happy to announce that we’ve automated the process for setting up and querying for recurring daily and/or weekly pitches. This complements the capabilities of Connect perfectly—a recap: Connect allows marketers to access all customer data in real-time, directly from the source, from within the email tool. By being able to effortlessly access (and thereby leverage) all of the customer data you have in your arsenal, you can create continuously evolving, sophisticated multi-dimensional segments. These segments will change as customer data changes within its natural habitat; no stale CSV imports or data transfers necessary!

Don’t Let Big Emails Cost You Big Sales

Despite what they tell you in Texas: bigger is not always better – at least when it comes to email. Sidebar: during my three-year tenure as an Austinite, I was very disappointed to learn that not all toast in Texas is Texas Toast. I know, I know – I was just as devastated as you.

Bigger is not always better when it comes to emails, in fact – huge emails could cost you big sales.

I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now

ABC

Consider your colleague’s perspectives and get your team on board.

It’s no secret that here at Sendwithus, we’re big supporters of cloud-hosted email templates. Moving transactional emails from hard-coded to the cloud makes emails more accessible to different teams and easier to manage, overall.

But before you start making waves at your workplace, be sure to consider the impact on all teams: Marketing, Product, and Development. Changing workflows and shifting tools or processes are rarely met without some level of pushback. Keep in mind that there’s always a learning curve to any new tool, for all users. The best way to have a successful rollout is to consider the needs of all stakeholders.

For more on what to consider before you start your transition, check out this post by our CEO, Matt Harris – The ABCs of Moving to Cloud Email Templates.
