Setting up a celebratory email can be a great way to surprise and congratulate a customer on their birthday or another occasion. The setup takes little time.
Firstly, go to Subscribers -> Fields and create a date type field for Birthday.
Secondly, go to Automations -> Create new workflow, name it and choose the “Anniversary of a date” trigger.
Fill in the trigger setup and choose the Custom Field you created initially. This trigger will check the set field everyday at the set time and if the date is today, the automation will start.
After setting the trigger, you can add any additional steps, e.g. a congratulatory email to be sent. It can include a message with personalization and a discount code or some other perk to surprise the recipient.
Do not forget to activate the automation workflow!
Once everything is set up, you can import your subscribers’ birthdays data or other anniversaries into the created field, and the automation will do its magic! Here is what the email might look in subscriber’s inbox:
