If you've ever built an email campaign, you know it can be a very time and resource intensive process. And that’s before you even think about optimizing a campaign’s content for each recipient. Fortunately, using Evergage for Email to add Promotions – and optionally, Recommendations – to an outgoing email campaign gives you the flexibility to customize each recipient’s experience – all by adding a few lines of HTML from Evergage.

Evergage does all the work for you behind the scenes and delivers your promotions to the email recipient as soon as they open the message. You don't need separate campaigns with separate copy and separate segments; all you need is one campaign to create maximally relevant experiences for every recipient. In addition, you can view detailed statistics on every promotion, so you know what's working and can adjust what isn't.

Use Promotions in an Email Campaign

Once you have created a promotion, you can add it to an email campaign. You can use the same promotion across multiple campaigns and experiences. For example, in one campaign, you could create a different experience for tablet, phone, and desktop users. Evergage will determine what device the recipient is using to open the email and show the experience optimized for that device. As with any Evergage campaign, you can add rules to target specific segments and A/B test experiences. For additional information, please see the article on Email Campaigns.
