In Automation campaigns you can create and send personalised, cross-channel marketing experiences.
For example, you can create a reactivation campaign flow to target customers who last purchased a specific product 6 months ago.
You do this by setting up a campaign in the Automation Campaign Builder that is segmented by product, with different wait times based on the product order gaps. Then you can send a personalised email with product-related content, and build a list of contacts to re-target via Facebook as a follow-up action.
