Having capacity to build complex email triggers and segments

The Challenge

Building complex triggers and email segments

Collage.com’s previous marketing platform couldn’t keep up with their evolving eCommerce needs and lacked the capabilities to build the complex segments and triggers they were looking to create. When looking for a new vendor, Collage.com evaluated 12 platforms on their ability to create triggered campaigns, transactional campaigns, and sync with Collage.com’s internal database, while still being easy enough to use that no features go to waste. After a rigorous evaluation process, Maropost came out on top. Here were their goals:

  • Build complex triggers and segments to accommodate their eCommerce needs
  • Generate hands-off revenue through email marketing
  • Sync all marketing data with Collage.com’s internal database

The Solution

Maropost Marketing Cloud stood out with our ability to easily create complex transactional and triggered campaigns across detailed segments. Now, with Maropost, Collage.com can turn their email marketing into a hands-off revenue generation system.

What started as a way for one of Collage.com’s cofounders to make an anniversary collage for his girlfriend (now wife), has become a site used by hundreds of thousands of happy customers to create something unique from their best memories.

Collage.com wanted a marketing platform that was easy to use and allowed for complex customer segmentation and triggered emails, so they came to Maropost Marketing Cloud.
