Define the timing of your emails

After reading our comprehensive study about the best days and times to email your customers you must be itching to try it out. While Remarkety’s ongoing campaigns are sent daily, you can still adjust the time of day when your emails to be sent.

We still recommend for abandoned cart campaigns to be sent as soon as possible. You want to contact your customers while they’re still hot-on-the-trot and ready to purchase.

But for campaigns like inactive customers or feedback request, it might be a better idea to send them at a time when your customers are at work and in front of their computer.

To set a specific send time, open the campaign you want to modify. Then in the bottom left corner, choose the specific hour you want this campaign to be sent every day. The hours are specific to your store’s time zone.

New ways to recommend relevant products

Who doesn’t love recommending relevant products to their customers? No one, of course. And did you know that you can adjust the recommended products and show specific types of recommendations to your customers? Now you do. :)

There are four types of recommendations you can create:

  1. Also purchased – Products that other customers who bought the same order/cart items also purchased.
  2. Bought together – Products that are usually bought together with products in order/cart.
  3. Category best – Best sellers from the categories of products in order/cart.
  4. Best sellers – Best selling items in your shop

And here’s a little trick – you can recommend products from a specific category by using the category best type recommendation and adding category =”name of your category”. This is how the tag should look: {recommend_items type=”category_best” category=”tablets”}.

Display shorter URLs to customers

If you have a long URL for your store, you can swap it for a shorter URL. Under your store settings, you can select a different store front URL, which will be pulled into the {store_url} tag.
