Spotlight on Magento: Why you should choose dotmailer for Magento

With dotmailer as the platform of choice for a string of leading global retailers, and Magento being the world’s most flexible ecommerce platform, it makes sense that the pair would go hand-in-hand.

In 2015, not only did we launch our dotmailer for Magento integration but we were also named one of its Premier Technology Partners. Our specialist Magento developers spent months preparing the integration so it would comply with the ecommerce platform’s codebase. The result? A super-charged tool that works in sync with Magento 1 and 2, and powers smarter, targeted, revenue-driven marketing.

The dotmailer for Magento integration takes the legwork out of marketing to your most valuable contacts, thanks to access to live data and via one interface. However, that’s certainly not the only benefit:

  • Automatic sync of your Magento subscribers, guests and customers
  • dotmailer ROI tracking within your Magento site
  • Rescue customers’ abandoned carts using triggered campaigns
  • Full campaign and contact reporting from within your dotmailer account
  • Plug-and-play extension with single sign-on
  • 24/5 support from Magento experts
  • An account manager to help you get the most out of the platform for your business
  • Multichannel automation, such as SMS

7 ways to make the most of dotmailer tools with your Magento contacts

There’s a long list of things you can do with the dotmailer for Magento integration – but here are a few of my favorites:

Automated abandoned cart emails
You can create your abandoned cart campaigns in dotmailer and then set the trigger from Magento within a minimum of 15 minutes of a cart becoming ‘lost’. You’ll be able to see the return on investment (ROI) and campaign drilldown reporting in your dotmailer account.

Create segments for relevant content
Use your synced contact data fields to better target your audience. For example, things like category purchases, interests, birthday / anniversary / subscribed date / last purchased date are all relevant ways to deliver a more personal message.

Magento external dynamic content links (EDC)
Using links from your Magento site, you can display dynamic product content in your emails to customers; some of these include:

  • Recommended products based on items in cart
  • Recommended products based on order history
  • Manual recommended products
  • Bestsellers
  • Last order ID
  • Coupon codes
  • Wishlist products
  • Upsells and cross-sells
  • Most viewed products

Catalog sync
dotmailer is releasing a new product block feature, meaning no more time-consuming product image uploads. It gives you the functionality to drag a block into your campaign and add an item by SKU – syncing the product image, URL, title and price, with a button to the item’s page.

Transactional email
We know that consistency is one of the keys to trust – so being able to brand transactional emails in line with marketing messages is an obvious benefit, What’s more, with the transactional email module, you can easily set up transactional data and view transactional reports through the dotmailer dashboard.

Order insight
Synchronizing the order history and insight of your contacts enables you to view all of their purchase history since becoming a guest or customer with you. This is truly invaluable in the drive towards relevancy in email marketing.
