New Feature: Show your subscribers a Preference Page

In case your have multiple newsletters or you send emails in different topics, you can let your subscribers what type of email communication they are expecting from you.

This is the Preference Page.

What is a Preference Page and why is it good?

One picture tells more than thousands of words – so this is how a preference page looks like in Automizy:

Preference Page

Basically, the Preference Page is a website where your subscribers can customize the emailing experience they get from you.

For example a subscriber doesn’t want to get your Promotions but still interested in your blog articles, therefore:

  • she clicks the “Manage Preferences” link in one of your emails’ footer instead of unsubscribing completely,
  • arrives to the website you saw above,
  • unchecks the “Promotion” option
  • and updates her email preferences by clicking the button.

Viola! You don’t lose a subscriber completely – she just tells you what she wants to receive from you and it happens automatically!

How to customize the anchor text for the Preference Page in your emails?

  1. Create or edit a campaign made by drag&drop email builder.
  2. In the email editor click on the footer block (the last section of your email)
