One-time email campaignsThis is the most basic email marketing campaign. A one-time campaign to your lists that can be sent manually (window pop-up) or scheduled with cron. As with all campaigns, you may set triggers on one-time campaigns, apply filters and use a custom sender profile.
Recurring email campaignsThese are campaigns that run periodically at given intervals. You can create campaigns that repeat daily or every X days, weekly or every X weeks, monthly on an exact day of the month. E.g. every 21st, every last day etc.
Campaign series, autoresponders and date-based campaigns are recurring campaigns.
- In this case you send a series of newsletters that will rotate forever (unless you give an end-date). Every next campaign will send the next newsletter in the series.
- It is very useful for delivering a series of tutorials, tips or other content in the periods you want (daily, every x days, weekly etc).
It is also a very good email marketing tactic for the life-cycle management of your lists. Example:
- It is usually the first autoresponders and trigger emails that you will use to grab your subscribers attention and drive engagement.
So you will meticulously plan your first follow-up emails (several minutes, hours, days later).
If you achieve your objective you can use triggers to add/remove the subscriber to/from the list(s) you want. If not you can add the subscriber in another list and create a campaign series for this list. You could use a filter so that this campaign series picks subscribers X days after their subscription. Just load some newsletters and let them recycle weekly, monthly (every few days or any period you want).
- Newsletter rotation with recurring campaigns is optional. Alternatively you can use one newsletter in a recurring campaign and change it just before the next campaign starts by editing the campaign. This approach is typical for those publishing newsletters on longer cycles (weekly, monthly etc).
- This is one of the most popular types of email marketing campaigns. Autoresponders is a special type of recurring campaigns and an ideal way of following-up with a sequence of emails at predefined intervals. The most classic example is after a list sign-up where you want to follow-up with a series of emails in the next minutes (hours or days). You can read more here.
- Using email triggers you can create drip email campaigns. In this case every next email depends on whether there was an action (click/view) on the previous one. They are more appropriate for more selective targeting. More.
Anniversaries, birthdays, weddings, visits etc
- These are based on subscriber fields that are of a date type.
- Especially the collection of birthdays is greatly facilitated in nuevoMailer. There is a notification in your home page when you have subscribers with birthdays. You also have a cron script that notifies you with every day's birthdays (same day or x days before).
- You can automate and send anniversary and happy-birthday email campaigns before, after or on the same day. More.
- You can create follow-ups based on a specific action (clicks-views activity) or as a response to a specific event (autoresponder on list sign-up) or based on a date event (see above).
- By using triggers on a recurring campaign you can automatically create follow-up campaigns for subscribers who did not clicked or opened a campaign.
Such a trigger is: upon click/view remove the subscriber from the list. Since the triggers are inherited to the child campaigns, subscribers who click or open are excluded from the every next campaign.
You may also set an end-date for this campaign, so you can plan in advance how may campaign rounds you want to send.
To take this a step further you can even send different newsletters with each follow-up campaign by using a newsletter series.
- Similarly you can follow-up with those who clicked/opened. Either on an individual basis (with email triggers) or automatically by using a trigger that puts them on another mailing list for which you have set another recurring campaign (or some autoresponders).
- You can also create follow-up campaigns manually on a one-time basis. From your summary report you can create one-time follow-up campaigns for subscribers who opened (or not), clicked (or not) in another campaign.
- You can send an html newsletter or a plain text newsletter or both merged =>multipart.
- You can embed RSS feeds in a newsletter. This is done simply by typing this inside a newsletter:
- You can grab and send a web page as a newsletter by giving the URL and a subject for the email. In addition, you may add attachments and append an opt out link (new feature since v.6).
- You can do A/B split tests with one-time campaigns. You can select a number of newsletters and these will rotate with every batch.
After some rounds you can see statistics about each newsletter. Which one received most clicks and views.
You can then edit your campaign and choose the one you want. Or you can just let them rotate. Learn more.
- Any newsletter can be used in any campaign with any mailing list or a selection of lists.
