Daily offers

Hi,

I've been asked to set up a programme for a sequence of daily product promotions with a new product each day. The product offers are limited life and will expire within a 24 hours period. People who join the programme prior to day 1 will receive an email with details of the special deal for that day, at the completion of the 24hour period that email will expire and the day 2 special will be sent to all those who have joined the programme prior to day 1 plus those new folks who have joined the programme during the last 24 hours. I need to therefore transition those already enrolled to the day 2 deal, and those newly enrolled to the day 2 deal.

I'm just trying to work out if I'd be better to use the engagement programme or a default programme with a smartlist i.e. is a member of the smartlist send email 2 etc etc.

Cheers

Hey Dave,

Personally, I'd set this up as a default program set on a recurring scheduled send, with a tokenised email that allows you to switch out the product deal as necessary each day. Having to do that token switch out manually every day would be a pain though, and prone to issues if someone forgot.

I'm no expert at all in velocity scripting, but there's probably a way that you could use a velocity script to make that switchout easier/less frequent... Sanford Whiteman​?

Re: Daily offers

Sure, put all all the specials in one Velocity token as an ArrayList (read: set of objects) tagged by date. Then each week the token outputs only that week's info.
