The "If/Else" Action for Automations

The "If/Else" feature aims to streamline email marketing processes and enhance personalization through branching automations. It tailors email campaigns based on subscribers' behaviours and purchase history.

Understanding the "If/Else" Automation Action

The "If/Else" automation action represents a decision-making tool within the automation workflow. It directs the workflow into different paths based on whether a certain condition is met (If) or not (Else).
For instance, the condition could be whether a subscriber has made a purchase or not. If the condition is true (a subscriber made a purchase), then an email thanking him/her for the purchase will be sent (If). If the condition isn't met (the subscriber hasn't made a purchase), then an email containing a special offer to incentivize purchase might be sent (Else).
Applying the "If/Else" Automation Step
Here's a simplified step-by-step explanation on how to use this feature:
  1. Setting the Condition: Begin by setting a condition for the automation. This condition could be set based on behavioural factors (like email click-through rates or past engagement), demographic information, or purchase history.
  2. Branching the Automation: Once the condition is set, the automation branching can commence. For subscribers who meet the set condition, they follow the ‘If’ path. For those who do not meet the condition, they follow the ‘Else’ path.
  3. Tailoring the Messages: Crafting unique and targeted messages for each path is crucial. The aim here is to maximize engagement and conversions. For instance, for subscribers who frequently engage with your emails, you might send a message expressing appreciation for their loyalty. On the contrary, for subscribers who don't often engage, a re-engagement email might be beneficial.
Implementing "If/Else" automation steps in MailPoet doesn't only save time, but also enables better subscriber engagement and potentially enhances revenue. With this feature, campaigns become more personalized, targeted, and hence, effective.
