Hi there! Thanks for dropping by. In this article, we're discussing Opt-Outs as they relate to integrating your software.
Managing opt-outs (also known as unsubscribes) with CRM, eCommerce, and Marketing Automation software is very essential for any organization. This will help you reach the right people in your targeted marketing. It also helps ensure that you're not emailing people who have decided they don't want to subscribe to your content for the time being.
But how does SyncApps manage the opt-outs and unsubscribes between CRM, eCommerce, and Marketing Automation software?
Check this flowchart out.
How is Opt-Out or Unsubscribe managed from CRM or eCommerce to my Marketing Automation software?
- By default, when a record is opted-out in any CRM or eCommerce system, the record or its status will not be synced to your Marketing Automation software. What happens is that the record is opted out in CRM or eCommerce solution, yet it is still opted-in your Marketing Automation software. You can still send the emails to the opted-in record in your Marketing Automation software.
Want to also sync the unsubscribed status to your Marketing Automation software, while ensuring they are opted out from your List or Audience once they unsubscribe from CRM or your eCommerce software?
Here's how you do it:
Let's take Mailchimp, a powerful email marketing platform and NetSuite, a G/L, CRM and eCommerce platform integration as an example:
There are options available for this in Step 1 of setting up a Sync Profile.
One option is "Unsubscribe opted-out Customers or Contacts in NetSuite from Mailchimp".
Just enable the "Unsubscribe opted-out Customers or Contacts in NetSuite from Mailchimp" option in Step 1 of the Sync Profile. This will allow the opted-out status to be synced to your Marketing Automation software so that your target marketing emails only to those people who have opted into your marketing content.
How is Opt-Out or Unsubscribe managed from your Marketing Automation software to CRM or eCommerce solution?
- Opt-Outs or Unsubscribes are automatically managed from your Marketing Automation software to CRM, eCommerce software on every sync.
What this means is every time a record in your Marketing Automation software opts out of your marketing then with each sync back to CRM or your eCommerce solution then SyncApps will check the appropriate standard unsubscribe checkbox.
Need to integrate a custom unsubscribe checkbox in your CRM or eCommerce solution? If so we have an Add-On for you that can do just that so check it out on our Add-Ons page here.
