One way to increase your campaign's effectiveness is to personalize your messages, for example by adding the recipient's salutation or other personal information that you have stored in your recipient list.
For automated tagging, just click on the icon in the campaign editor to choose from personalization codes, content and links and polls.
A complete list of supported system tags can be found here.
Personalization tag – Select the desired type of recipient information from the drop-down bar, which will be replaced by the individual data of each recipient before sending the message.
For example: To enter the recipient's name into the message body, NAME is selected, Mailkit will insert the tag into the body of the email in the place specified by your mouse cursor, by inserting the [FIRST_NAME] tag, which will be shown as (for example) "Mike" in the case where your subscribers full name is Mike Smith.
Content tags – You can insert the current day, month, or year into the message body. The desired information is selected from the drop down menu, which will be replaced by the current relevant data (current day, month, year etc.) at the time the campaign is sent.
For example, if a date is to be entered in the email, first select day from the drop down, click the Insert button and repeat the procedure for month. So, the campaign editor will display two tags - [DAY] and [MONTH] - which will be swapped for the current date when the campaign is dispatched.
Link tag – these codes can be used to insert a link for Unsubscribe from the Mailing list, a link for displaying in the Browser, and a link for the Print version. From a legal standpoint, the single most important link is the unsubscribe link – so that every recipient is simply able to opt-out from a mailing list. If an unsubscribe link is not inserted in the message body using this method then the system will automatically insert a standard unsubscribe link prior to sending the campaign (except the transactional campaigns).
For example: To insert an unsubscribe link click on the drop-down menu, select unsubscribe link and click the Paste button. A link to the text "Click to Unsubscribe" is inserted into the body of the email. The text of this link can be edited in HTML.
Dear [% IF recipient.GENDER == 'M' -%]Mr. [LAST_NAME][% ELSE -%]Ms. [LAST_NAME][% END %]
In some cases there may be a situation where the recipient's gender is missing in your records. In these cases you may add the following condition:
Dear [% IF recipient.GENDER == 'M' -%]Mr. [LAST_NAME][% ELSIF recipient.GENDER == 'F'-%]Ms. [LAST_NAME]
[% ELSE%]Customer [% END%]
... then in the case of a missing gender record (for example, gender not entered at sign-up), the recipient will simply see "Dear Customer".
