Here is a short guide to help create your first recurring email campaign on Batch following the 3 steps of the campaign form:

  1. Targeting: full base or fine-tuning segmentation, through native targeting or custom data;

  2. Timing: the lifetime and the frequency of the campaign;

  3. Email message: the content of the campaign that will be sent to the user.

First, start a new email recurring campaign from the Automations tab and name it 👇

Then, let's set up your recurring email campaign!

Targeting

The targeting block is where you will define the segmentation of your campaign.

By default, Batch considers that you will target your entire audience. First, you can select a specific country or language.

Then, you can refine your segmentation by clicking 'Add Conditions'. From then on, you will be able to select native targeting elements (Email domain, etc.), but also profile attributes (data specific to your app business and selected thanks to the tagging plan).

💡Tips:

You can add up as many conditions as you want, and create specific scenarios by clicking on 'AND/OR'.

Timing

Now that we know who to send your email to, let's define when to send it!

First, set up the date and the hour of the first sending of the email campaign, and then the date of the end of it 👇

You can choose to send your email on Local time or Global time (UTC):

  • The Local Time option lets you send a push notification that will be received at a given time according to the user’s time zone. This ensures that marketing efforts target your users at a uniform time.

  • On the other hand, the Global Time (UTC) option allows you to send a push notification to your users at a specific UTC time regardless of their location.

Finally, let's define the frequency of the campaign!

Depending on your campaign goal, you can adapt the frequency of sending between days, weeks, and months.

It is also the time to set up a capping rule if you want to limit the number of times a user will receive your campaign 👇

Email message

Last but not least, let's compose your email message!

First, you need to define your header information with:

  • the Sender which is the email address and name that will appear as the sender of the message;

  • the Subject of your message;

  • the field Reply to (optional).

Then, there are 2 ways to create the body of your email:

  • Design your message with our Email Composer

Batch allows you to create an email from scratch through our Email Composer. You'll find many articles about how to use it in the Email composer part of this FAQ 👈

Testing the campaign

Now that your message is written and ready to captivate your readers, you can test how it looks on your device!

Use the Send test button on the email message window and type your email address 👇

The email is immediately sent!

💡 Tips:

We recommend sending tests to different email clients (Apple Mail, Thunderbird, etc.) and mailbox providers (Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook, etc.) to make sure your message is well displayed on all of them.

Your first recurring email campaign is now ready to be sent! Click on the 'Save and run' button at the bottom of the form to activate it or save it as a draft and come back later.
