Mailmodo

Introduction

Mailmodo, one of MoEngage's Technology Partners, enables you to create interactive email templates to increase user engagement and marketing ROI using Emails. 

MoEngage <> Mailmodo

Mailmodo is an AMP email solution and with the integration, you can:

  • Use the MoEngage Segmentation module to send emails to targeted users.
  • Use Mailmodo for email template creation and use MoEngage connector campaigns to trigger emails. 
  • Use the existing SendGrid account or set up Mailmodo SMTP to send emails from Mailmodo.
  • Use Mailmodo's campaign activity data inside MoEngage while segmenting users or creating flows.

Integration 

 

PREREQUISITES

  • Ensure you have a Mailmodo account. 

When you sign up for a new Mailmodo account, a default sender ID is automatically added to your account for testing the platform. To send your actual campaigns with Mailmodo, you must add your own custom sender email address. For example, if your domain is 'www.abc.com', the custom sender email address could be 'hey@abc.com.'

Step1.gif

To set up a custom domain, go to the sender settings and enter the sender email. Then you have an option to select an email delivery service. After selecting one, a form appears, which you have to fill for it to be sent, requesting Google to whitelist your email address.

The approval process may take up to 7 days. You will get a confirmation email when it's completed. Once the email address has been whitelisted for AMP by Google, you will be able to send out dynamic AMP email campaigns through Mailmodo.

Setting up MoEngage Integration in Mailmodo

  • By setting up the MoEngage integration, you will be able to create segments, campaigns, flows, or dashboards in MoEngage using their campaign activity data, for emails triggered with MoEngage as an external trigger.

Please note campaign activity data of campaigns triggered with MoEngage as an external trigger will only be sent to MoEngage. The overall campaign statistics like email activity trends, AMP vs HTML performance, top email clients, link performance, submissions, insights, etc will also be available in the Mailmodo campaign dashboard.

Sample use cases include triggering a push campaign in MoEngage for all the users opening or clicking a particular campaign from Mailmodo, or creating a dashboard of all the users submitting a form from Mailmodo.

Create Templates in Mailmodo

Mailmodo’s no-code/low-code template editor lets you create templates as per your need without needing any expertise in coding. You just have to drag and drop the elements into the template. You can create various templates such as newsletter templates, promotional email templates, feedback email templates, etc.

Mailmodo’s template also allows you to add different AMP widgets like Polls, Calendars, carts, Spin the wheel, Forms, etc. You can read these to find out how to add AMP widgets to your template. These widgets will help increase your engagement metrics. 

The template editor also has options for personalization. You can add first name, last name, contact info., email, etc., in the template. You also have some pre-made templates to work with if you want to avoid making the whole thing from scratch.

    • Key : content-type
    • Value : application/json;charset=utf-8

Step 4: In the Body Type, select Raw and Paste the body from the Mailmodo Trigger Info section.

If your Mailmodo template has personalization, then delete <Value for personalization parameter> in the MoEngage body, type @, and select the corresponding personalization attribute in MoEngage in the ensuing Connector Personalisation pop-up.

  • Please choose fallback as per your requirement for when personalization fails for the selected property in the above pop-up
  • For example, if your template has first_name then delete <Value for first_name>, type @, and select the First Name attribute in the ensuing pop-up.

Body from Mailmodo

{
  "email": "{{UserAttribute['Email']}}",
  "moengage_id": "{{UserAttribute['ID']}}",
  "data": {
    "first_name": "<Value for first_name>"
  }
}

Body type in MoEngage after personalization mapping

{
  "email": "{{UserAttribute['Email']}}",
  "moengage_id": "{{UserAttribute['ID']}}",
  "data": {
    "first_name": "{{UserAttribute['First Name']}}"
  }
}
  • Both email and moengage_id (customer_id) are mapped by default in the Mailmodo body. 
  • If you're storing email ID in any other attribute, delete the {{UserAttribute['Email']}} value, type @, and map it to that attribute.
  • Also, if you're manually mapping, map the moengage_id to the ID (a.k.a customer_id) attribute in MoEngage.
 

Note

The moengage_id (a.k.a ID or customer_id in MoEngage) of the email recipients is mandatorily needed to push the campaign activity to MoEngage. Hence the same is configured in the body while setting up the MoEngage Transactional (Trigger) campaign. For more information, please refer to the article

  • Test the campaign using email ID and click on Next.
