Plus, automated set and forget marketing communications based on purchasing behaviour or important dates (such as Happy Birthday offers) make it easy to send personalised emails to your customers without the hassle.

Once you’ve created an automated email or SMS – let’s say it’s a welcome message with a discount code when someone signs up to your loyalty program – you can simply let it run and reap the rewards!
