After a customer buys something from you, it may be a while before they purchase again. Our customer re-engagement automation is designed to win back customers who haven't purchased from your store in a specific timeframe.
In this article, you'll learn how to add a customer re-engagement automation.
Before you start
Here are some things to know before you begin this process.
This automation is available to users who connect a supported e-commerce store or custom API 3.0 integration. To find out if your store supports this automation, visit the Connected Sites page, click the name of your integration, and check the Features list.
The from email address you specify for your automation is used on each email in the series. To change the from email address on an individual email, manually update that email's settings.
Each email the automation sends to a contact counts toward your monthly send limit or uses a Pay As You Go credit, including test emails.
Create an automation
To create a customer re-engagement automation, follow these steps.
On your account dashboard, click the Automations icon.
Click Classic Automations.
Click the E-Commerce tab.
Click Win back lapsed customers.
Choose to send a Single email or an Email series.
Enter a campaign name and click the drop-down menu to choose an audience.
Now we'll take you to the Emails step where you'll design each email in your automation.
In the Emails step of the Automation Builder, you'll design each email's content. If you chose to send an email series, you can add, remove, or re-order emails in your automation. You can also edit each individual email's settings.
The customer re-engagement series automation includes 3 emails, but you can add or remove emails, or change the settings for each. The default automation features emails with the following triggers.
120 days after subscriber's last purchase
240 days since subscriber's last purchase and previous email was sent
360 days since subscriber's last purchase and previous email was sent
The customer re-engagement single email includes 1 email, with the first trigger only.
Design an email
Click Design Email.
On the Setup step, input the field names for Name your email, Email subject, Preview Text, From name, and From email address for the specific email you're working with.
To display the numbered position of the email in the automation, use automation merge tags in your subject line.
On the Template step of the Email Designer, select your template.
Click Save and Return to Workflow, to return to your automation timeline.
Repeat these steps for each email in your automation.
Your overall automation workflow settings include your Workflow name, From name, From email address, and tracking options. To access your workflow settings, navigate to the Emails step of the Automation Builder and click Edit Settings.
