Optimized email campaign

Email is a basic element of our communications with the customers who visit our website or eCommerce which, if used well, allows us to increase sales and traffic. 

To optimize the deliverability of a bulk email campaign, your strategy should prioritize reaching the most recent contacts who have interacted with emails. This practice aims to improve the likelihood of emails reaching the recipients' inbox, as email providers such as Gmail and Outlook will individually analyze whether contacts have previously interacted with a sender’s messages.

If the mail managers’ analysis yields a negative result in terms of interaction, future mails are more likely to be diverted to the spam folder or not reach the inbox at all. Therefore, by first sending the campaign to the contacts who are most likely to interact with new messages, you maximize the chances that these recipients receive and open the mailings in their inbox.

By adopting this strategy, you increase the likelihood that campaign mailings will actually reach users' inboxes. It also reduces the risk of messages being flagged as spam or automatically filtered to other folders, increasing visibility and the likelihood that contacts will interact with new mailings.

In this article you’ll learn how to create an optimized email campaign.

  

Objective: Loyalty.
Difficulty: Intermediate.
When to use it: In any email campaign.

  

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 (Optimized email campaign) then click Select and Create.

 

How it works

To perform the mailout in tranches, we first check if a contact belongs to a specific segment among several. If they belong to the first one, the email is sent to the contact immediately. If they do not belong, the workflow waits 15 minutes before checking if they belong to the next segment. We can add the number of waits, checks and dispatches we need depending on the segmentation.

Workflow configuration

  

Before configuring your workflow, create the following elements:
- The dynamic plus segment of last open/click < 30d, to group contacts subscribed to the newsletter who have opened or clicked on an email in the last 30 days .
- The dynamic plus segment of last open/click 31-60d, to group contacts subscribed to the newsletter who opened or clicked on the email between 31 and 60 days ago.
- The dynamic plus segment of last opened/clicked 61-90d, to group contacts subscribed to the newsletter who opened or clicked on the email between 61 and 90 days ago.
- The dynamic plus segment of new contacts with newsletter subscription, to group subscribed contacts that were created in the database in the last 30 days and have not opened or clicked on any email in that period of time.
- Four emails, for each of the sending segments.
