How to Add Newsletter Content to Drip
Here's a simple guide on how to add your newsletter content code snippet to Drip.
OBS: It's essential to notice that you shouldn't send more than one newsletter with the same name. Every campaign or broadcast name should be unique. This is to make sure no duplicated products will be shown in your newsletters since we use the date as a unique ID for the products.
It is important to note here that before being able to create an auto campaign, you must have created a design for the newsletter content first. To learn about how to do so, click here. When you have your design ready, then feel free to proceed with this guide to integrate with Drip.
How to get your Hello Retail code snippet
Step 1: Firstly, log into your Hello Retail account here and create an auto campaign for your product recommendations that should be in the newsletter. (If you already made a design you can skip to Step 4)
Step 2: When you are logged into your account, navigate to: Newsletter Content > Auto campaigns.
- If you already have made an "Auto campaign config", click on the "Edit auto campaign config" button.
