Here are practical use cases on how to generate SmartEmailing webhooks with the Meiro Events:
Sending a series of welcome emails from Meiro to every new user added to CDP. They can guide them through on how to use the platform as well as any product newsletters that might be blasted out from the product team.
Sending a POST request when a contact opens your campaign or clicks at a particular link in your campaign. It does not matter if it is sent as a newsletter or set as an autoresponder or even if the campaign is sent by the trigger.
Sending an automated email notifying a user of the status of an order. For example, once clients land on the “thank you for your order page”, this can be triggered to send them automated emails with their names, items bought, used method of payment, date when a package arrives, etc. Another trigger may finish the email sending when the status of the order is completed.
Sending an automated message to a customer, who started the checkout process, but left without finishing. Emails can remind your customers that there is an abandoned basket waiting for them.
Sending a birthday campaign to your customers and giving them some reward as a gift.
