After you've learned how to build out Smart Content, explore the below top use cases for new or existing one-time or automated campaigns.
Before you start:
Data Availability: Some of these use cases, like birthday or gender, may require that additional data is ingested into your Bluecore account. Learn more about Bluecore's file imports here.
Configured at Send-Time: Smart Content, and all other dynamic elements in your email template, are set at send time. Although the vast majority email opens occur within a few hours of send time, be sure to consider scenarios where the customer opens an email much after send time (i.e. days later). This is especially important with promos, offers, and sale announcements.
Product Filters: When using product filters for product specific content, Smart Content will always reference the first product block in your template. If this product block has more than one product in it, we will find the mode of the entire block and if there happens to be an equal split (i.e. you’re filtering based on category and the product block has two products in it of different categories), Smart Content will make a random selection.
