Since email marketing is one of the most effective ways to reach an audience, more and more companies want to take advantage of that medium. Sending emails out one by one is not just monotonous, it’s also not strategic, especially if you are hoping to send an email based on a specific action.  For instance, if you want to send an email every time someone signs up for a certain product, you don’t want to have to create a brand new email and send it out manually each time. You’d be spending so much time typing the names, writing content, and organizing the layout every time you’re going to send a thank you note or a newsletter.
