Rare.io: Smart Email Marketing

rare-icon.png
 

Rare.io: Smart Email Marketing app connects your store with Rare.io email marketing service. This integration allows you to easily send newsletters, welcome emails and order follow-ups.

Once you connect your Ecwid store and Rare.io application, all your store data including contacts and shopping history will be loaded into the Rare.io backend. All future customer data will appear automatically in your Rare.io account (in 1-2 minutes after the information is recorded in your Ecwid store).

The Rare.io service allows you to set up different campaigns for a specific contact list or segment on the Campaigns tab. Campaign is any Mailout that you send out manually. Campaigns can be scheduled to go out at a specific time, or they can be sent on a ‘predictive’ schedule.

Automated Series help you compose a series of emails set to go out automatically whenever certain conditions are met — for instance, when a customer buys one of your products.

The Lists tab gives you the option to manage the Lists and the Segments:

  • A Segment is a group of people from your total contact list who all have something in common. Segments are automatically updated whenever customers meet specified conditions. They cannot be updated or adjusted manually.
  • A List is a group of people who might or might not have something in common. Lists might consist of contacts who share another platform or lead source in common, or consist of groups of customers that you’ve taken from different Segments and included in a Master List.

With Rare, you have the ability to manually import customer lists through CSVs, or Comma Separated Value files (acceptable file types are .csv or tab-delimited .txt files).

You can embed an HTML sign-up form on your webpage to make sure that new signups will land in a specific List. A signup form can only be connected to a specific LIST (not a Segment). Learn more

If you are using the Ecwid Starter Site, you can embed a signup form in Ecwid category description. For that, go to your Ecwid Control panel → Catalog → Categories, open the category edit page and switch to the HTML editor (<>).
