Will SmartrMail design my emails?

SmartrMail can help migrate existing header and footer designs, or setup basic templates (logos, colours, fonts etc). SmartrMail will not design images, banners or write campaigns. This usually ends up with uninspiring copy and design. You know your brand best!

How will SmartrMail optimize my campaigns?

With structured A/B testing, savvy planning, smart segmentation, and a few handy tricks we can help you get a huge increase in traction from your email list. From re-sending altered campaigns to subscribers who didn’t open the first one, to cleaning unengaged subscribers to improve your deliverability, we’ll help you get the most sales from your list.

Can I send more than 1 newsletter a month?

Yes! To make the best use of time, we’ll plan to have you design and schedule your emails in advance. We’ll catch up at least once during each month regarding your newsletters.

How much time do I have to commit to this?

About 3-4 hours per week. We’ll come up with the ideas together and then almost all of the structural elements will be put in place by SmartrMail. You’ll just have to edit the designs and copywriting.

How will we keep track of our work?

Once the you've added the Assisted Setup add-on, you'll have an inbuilt project management board within your SmartrMail account within 24 hours. Monday-Friday.

Will SmartrMail need access to my store?

This can help their team with access to your data to give recommendations and ease the migration process. However it is not mandatory. SmartrMail’s team can instead request files, info or exports when necessary.

*Theme edits and CSS styling on your site for forms are not included in the add-on

How do I sign up?
