What We Recommend


Email and Marketing Automation

Did you know that the ROI for email marketing can be as high as 3,800%? To create a consistent, friendly touchpoint with your customers, you’ll need to be well-versed in the art of email marketing. That means sending emails that are relevant to their purchase and search history as well as emails based on their ongoing relationship with your brand, their preferences, and cart status. Which brings us to our very own abandoned cart workflow—try it out over at our t-shirt shop to see how powerful your ecommerce shop + marketing automation platform integration can be.
