It allows you to send tailored emails to your customers based on their behavior and preferences, increasing engagement and helping you build stronger relationships with your customers. Email automation also eliminates the need for manual intervention, saving you time and resources. Once you set up your email automation, it will continue to send emails automatically. By including personalized and relevant information in your transactional emails, you can increase the chances of conversion and revenue.
