Marketing enables you to send custom emails, push notifications and SMS campaigns to your customers. Marketing has been designed to help your business grow and increase sales. It provides value to your customers, offering them discounts, promoting new businesses and keeping ahead of the competition. You can easily segment your customers so you can target your marketing to specific groups of customers.

When you select Marketing from the Management Portal navigation, a list of marketplaces that are associated with the current user will be listed. Once a marketplace has been selected, the following tabs will be displayed:

  • Dashboard
    An analysis of all your marketing activities. It displays multiple stats and key performance indicators based on your previous campaigns.

  • Segments
    View existing segments and create new segments.

  • Campaigns
    View existing campaigns and create new campaigns.

  • Meta Business
    Set up the synchronisation of your customers to Meta Business Suite Audiences - subject to subscription.

Marketing - Dashboard Overview

Active Channels: A channel represents the method through which you engage your audience messages. A customer may have multiple channels, e.g. Push and Email and SMS.

How it works

Marketing campaigns can be sent using the following channels:

  • Email

  • SMS (£0.04 per SMS)

  • Push Notifications

Segments

Segments represent a group of users that match certain filters. These can be used as a personalised tactic to deliver more relevant campaigns to subscribers based on their geographic location, activity, purchase history, and more. To create a segment, simply select Create Segment at the top right of the page.

For each segment, you can set up different criteria based on the content you want to send using our filters.

Customer Reach: Shows how many customers have opt-in for push, emails and SMS notifications once filtering has been applied. Customers that have opted in for all channels count as 3 channels. 

Campaigns

Once you have set up your segment group, you can create your campaign. In order to create a new campaign, navigate to the Campaign tab and click Create Campaign at the top right of the page. Here you can start creating the campaign, adding a campaign name so you can identify it and it allows you to schedule or sent it out immediately to the segment group. You can send the campaign using push notifications, emails, SMS or all. Make sure you fill in all the mandatory fields and use the preview on the right side to get an idea of how the campaign will show to the customers when received.

Once you've sent your campaign you will be able to see how many people have received it.
