Types of email campaigns


The two types of email campaigns each has a set of templates that helps you to quickly create new email campaigns.

In the Email Experience Manager, there are two types of email campaigns and each has a set of templates that contain default content and layout. This makes it easy to create new email campaigns and enables you to focus crafting the best content for your audience. If the templates provided do not fulfill your requirements, you can create your own templates or import and use a design from an existing webpage.

The email campaign type defines how you can use, configured, and send email messages. The two types available are:

  • Regular email campaign – this type does not have any predefined content or recipients, so you create this type of email campaign from scratch. Use this, for example, if your company releases a new product in a specific country and you want to send an email campaign to all your contacts in that country to let them know that the product is now available for purchase.

  • Automated email campaign – this type is used to send a single email to one contact at a time, for example, in relation to an automation campaign, when a contact submit a form, or a custom implementation where the client API is used. Therefore, you cannot add a list of contacts to this type of email campaign.

    You can use the automated email campaign when, for example, you want to send a confirmation to every contact who signs up for a newsletter, or if you want to send a special campaign offer to every contact who has visited your website but has not returned to the website in three weeks.
