Triggered emails in ecommerce: driving sales on autopilot

In ecommerce, email marketing is the easiest and cheapest way to continuously engage your customers and drive repeat sales. To stand out in their inbox, though, your emails need to be timely and relevant. How to achieve that? Send emails in response to customer’s action, not just because. Use customer behavior as email triggers.

Triggered emails are always just in time and meaningful – the offers are customized and the customer understands why they get this email now. Depending on your ecommerce CRM and email marketing tool, you should be able to use all kinds of event-based and metric email triggers:

  • A customer places/ cancels/ gets refunded for an order
  • A customer uses a coupon/ reads a blog article/ abandons cart/ browses without buying
  • A customer hits a milestone in order value/ number
  • And more customer actions.

Here are some of the most useful ecommerce email triggers to use and the email automations to set up with them.
