How to send a Mass Transactional Email with Net-Results.

What Is A Mass Transactional Email

Let’s say you need to get an email out to all of your existing customers letting them know about a change in your privacy policy or terms of service.

But some of your customers may have opted out of your marketing emails. They are flagged as unsubscribed and, until now, would not receive your email.

Within Goldilocks, we’ve added the ability to flag any Workflow or Send It Automation as Transactional.

A Transactional campaign/automation will be sent to all contacts who qualify, bypassing their unsubscribe status: they’ll receive the email even if they are unsubscribed from marketing emails, ensuring no contact misses out on crucial updates.

We do have a small word of caution for you. When you set up this Automation in your Net-Results account and choose to send it as a “Transactional Email,” a friendly warning will pop up. It’s there to remind you that this capability should be used responsibly and for specific instances only. Please resist the temptation to use it for regular marketing emails because, let’s be honest, that probably won’t end well.

How to Set up A Mass Transactional Email

Within your Goldilocks, you can set up a Mass Transactional Email via Send It Automations, or Workflow Automations.
