This is an audience that allows you to filter your total database by demographic information, opt-ins, message engagement, or promotion engagement.
The audience count that is displayed before applying filters is the total number of sendable email addresses in your organization's database. After applying filters, the number that displays is the total number of sendable email addresses that meet the filter criteria.
Additional Audience Features
Interest Tags can be applied to Contests, Interactive Content, Email Campaigns, Ballot Groups and Categories, and Email Links. User's who interact with campaigns that are tagged will have the interest(s) applied to their consumer profile.
Consumer Profiles and Management
Consumer Profiles are visible, and can be managed from anywhere within the platform. Search for a profile to see any/all information that has been submitted via a form (Contests and Interactive Content). Within a profile, you're also able to see each Audience the user is included in, the user's Email History, and any photo or video contest submission the user has made.
Email Template Builder
Create an email template, or layout, to be used again and again across all of your email campaigns. The Template Builder allows users to edit content location and styling, by adding sections, and dragging and dropping content blocks.
Custom From Addresses
Create a Custom From Address that uses your website domain to build trust with your subscribers and improve deliverability. Second Street features an easy set-up process that generates necessary SPF and DKIM records to add to your DNS to authenticate the from-address.
Note: To authenticate your custom from-address, you will need access to your DNS. Copy and paste the records from the set up modal to either add to your DNS, or send along to your DNS administrator.
