Discounted product alert 2/2

Reactivate contacts who have subscribed to discounted product alerts, notifying them on the day that the product they’ve subscribed to is on sale.

In this article you’ll learn how to set up a sale alert (part two).

  

Objective: Reactivation.
Difficulty: Advanced.
When to use it: Any time you want to notify the customer of discounted products. 

  

This strategy is part of our pool of templates. To implement it in your account, access your Connectif account and go to “Workflows Create new workflow”. In the Create from template section, enter the name of the workflow in the search engine (Discounted product alert 2/2) then click  Select and  Create.

 

How it works

After segmenting the products in the Discounted product alert 1/2 workflow, we’ll set up an email to be sent as soon as we identify that the product is back in stock.
Once the email has been sent, we’ll check if the contact is still subscribed to a product and, if not, remove them from the segment.
