E-mail marketing is important. Especially if you are running an eCommerce store. You can allow users to opt-in to get Newsletters for discounts and offers. And, when you are ready to launch a new offer, sending E-mails to those subscribers can make a huge difference in sales and promotions. E-mail marketing is very effective if done properly. However, how to write an awesome E-mail is a totally different topic. The responsibility of an eCommerce platform is to provide a method to send E-mails to all those regular and potential customers.
OpenCart provides a simple and effective way to send mass E-mails to your subscribers. You can also select different segments like Affiliates, Customer groups, Specific Affiliates and much more. You can send mass E-mails to any segment directly from the admin panel of your store.
