Email automation makes it easy to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, send reminders and more. If you haven't used this feature, here's the skinny on what it is, how it works and how you can make the most of automated email campaigns for your business.

What's the difference between an automated email campaign and a scheduled email?

When you create an email in CorpNote, you can send it right away, or scheduled it to be sent.

An automated email is different in that you can select email templates you have designed and have them automatically sent to an email list of recipients at an interval that you choose. For example: if you are sending birthday eCards, they will go out year after year, to the email list you've selected, without any additional intervention.

Creative Ways to Use Automated Emails

Now that you know how email automation works, here are some creative ways to customize your next automated email campaign.

We're sure you will come up with many other great uses for sending automated emails. They can be used for pretty much any email campaign that requires a scheduled series of notices.

What happens to automated email campaigns when a membership lapses?

If your account becomes inactive (because you cancelled, or your credit card expired and wasn't updated), your automated emails will not be sent.

When you cancel, or if your payment fails, CorpNote retains your account data for a grace period of 60 days (unless you ask us to delete this information upon termination). During this time, automated emails will not be sent. For your security, accounts that are inactive for 60 days are automatically cleared of all account data, which means all automated email campaigns and scheduled emails in your account are permanently deleted.

If you restore your account within the 60-day grace period, your automated email campaigns will commence on the day following your account re-activation. To avoid interruption of your automated emails campaigns, please make sure that your account payment is up to date, and that you respond to our billing notifications promptly.
