Your Contact List is designed to help you collect and manage all of your contacts in one place, whether they’re subscribed or unsubscribed.

People on your Contact List are known as contacts. Each contact has one email address, one phone number and user id which are organized based on how they interact with your marketing. However, you need to further organize your contact list.

Before You Start

Here are some things to know before you begin this process:

  • A subscribed contact, or a subscriber, is someone who has opted in to receive your email marketing. Subscribers can be imported directly to your list, or they can be added via API. They’ll have a Subscribed badge in the contact column of your Contact List.
  • You can add as many custom variables to each contact as you need, without any limitations.
  • Once you’ve organized your customer data, you can start using SmartSenders’s personalization and automation tools to make campaigns feel like a 1-to-1 conversation—sending the right message at the right moment, and always making the right product recommendations.
  • With all your contact data in one place, it’s easy to use SmartSender’s segmentation tools to find exactly who you need to communicate with.
