Communication is critical if you want to retain customers. The resources below will help jumpstart those communications by ensuring you know what options are available to you.
Import and manage your contacts
A contact is an individual whose interaction with your business has prompted the creation of a profile in your Privy account. The information stored in these records empowers you to create more focused campaigns via audience targeting and enables you to send eligible recipients marketing or sales communications.
Before importing contacts from an external source, such as a previous service provider, it's important to evaluate the health of your list and ensure its compliance with Privy's guidelines.
Once you've reviewed those resources and scrubbed your list(s), get your contacts into Privy by following these steps.
Set your mailing address
To comply with anti-spam legislation, marketing emails must include your business's physical address and a link for contacts to manage their email subscription. Privy will automatically add the proper unsubscribe link, but you will need to update your address information before sending any emails. Set your mailing address by following these steps.
Determine your branding
Your account's brand settings allow you to select a default color and font along with a default set of social links and a default logo. Updating these options makes creating content easier and helps ensure consistency across your various campaigns and messages. Determine your branding by following these steps.
Configure your sending domain
By default, the address used to send emails from Privy is email@example.com. However, this address can be updated to reflect your specific domain and brand instead. This simple change typically increases your open rates and deliverability because the sending address is instantly recognizable to your customers. Customize your sending domain by following these steps.
Send the right email
Privy Email supports a wide range of email types so that you can send the right message, to the right person, at the right time.
Send abandoned cart emails
Abandoned cart emails are one of the most valuable tools for an e-commerce business. Sent individually or as part of a series, these messages target customers who added items to their cart but failed to complete the transaction. Start saving sales by following these steps.
Send customer winback emails
Customer Winback emails let you automatically engage with customers who haven't bought from you in a while. This is big because the repeat customers created as a result of your actions are 9x more likely to convert, spend 3x your average order value, and are 20% more profitable for your business. Start driving repeat purchases by following these steps.
Newsletters are a powerful tool for any e-commerce business. The messages sent through this channel can circulate important information, establish your brand's reputation, strengthen your relationship with customers, and help move recipients through your sales funnel. Start creating beautiful, branded emails that engage your current subscribers by following these steps.
Send purchase follow-up emails
Setting up a purchase follow-up email is one of the most effective things you can do for your business. The post-purchase period is a crucial point in your customer's journey, and a purchase follow-up email provides you the opportunity to build brand loyalty and create repeat customers. For Shopify Plus, Shopify, and Bigcommerce, we also have the ability to add order summary to your purchase follow-up email. Start fostering your post-sale relationships by following these steps.
Send an after signup series
In addition to the email types outlined above, you can create automated emails or coupon reminders tied to a specific onsite campaign from within the "Follow-up" step of the campaign builder. These series are kicked off when someone signs up for your campaign and send on the schedule you determine. Series are created and managed within each of your display campaigns. Learn more.
