Using SALESmanago Marketing Automation software you can personalize your communication with customers by sending product recommendations adapted to their interest and behaviour, for example in a dynamic email, in our Automatic Sales Chat or in a dynamic recommendation frame on your website. To make use of those advanced features you should add a source of information about the products in your online shop to the Marketing Automation system. With the brand new section, Your e-shops, adding a product data from your website to the SALESmanago platform is now fast, easy and moreover remarkably convenient for those who manage more than one online store.
All that you need is a product feed that contains all the necessary information about your merchandise, for example its name, description, category, brand, price, and many more. The product information can be imported to SALESmanago Marketing Automation system as a XML file. We have great news: the process of adding product feeds to the system is now optimized thanks to the new Your e-shops tab. You can access it by simply going to the Settings section, then the Other tab, and finally choosing Your e-shops from the menu on the left.
What are the benefits of adding information from your e-shop?
The data loaded from your online shop product feed allows you to use advanced SALESmanago features that personalize your communication with the customers, such as:
- dynamic email, a highly personalized message perfectly suited to the customer’s interests, preferences, browsing or transaction history, etc.;
