To create a new email, just go to module Marketing Channels -> feature Emails.
Then click on “Start a new Email”:
and name your email:
Let’s see an example:
“My first email project” is the name of this email project (visible only on your Releva account).
“Welcome on board 😊 ” is the email’s subject. You can use emojis as well.
“Preview Text” appears in the inbox just after the subject line. This text will not appear in the body of the email. You can use emojis.
The incoming email for your recipients will look like this:
When your users receive the email, they will see the sender name, the subject line, and the preview text in the inbox. These properties need to be recognizable and creative, so your users are more likely to open your emails.
Releva allows 255 characters, including the emoticons. According to the Standard of electronic mail, we recommend the characters to be up to 78. This applies to all fields. Outside the standard, the relevant fields must be visible in the inbox of the various devices related to your email testing.
According to the same standardization, Releva complies with the specification of the primary protocol for sending and receiving electronic messages (emails), namely:
“The local-part of a mailbox MUST BE treated as case sensitive. Therefore, SMTP implementations MUST take care to preserve the case of mailbox local-parts. In particular, for some hosts, the user “smith” is different from the user “Smith”. However, exploiting the case sensitivity of mailbox local-parts impedes interoperability and is discouraged. Mailbox domains follow normal DNS rules and are hence not case sensitive.”, i.e. the system does not recognize an email with the name “smith”, such as the name “Smith”. Releva supports case sensitive emails. Аnd thus, the different spelling of a letter, in most email providers, can result in a non-receipt of the letter.
Currently email templates comply with the web versions of the following email clients:
Gmail, Microsoft Outlook, Yahoo, Abv.bg, Mail.bg, Apple mail
Email templating is also compatible with the following mobile email apps:
Gmail, Microsoft Outlook, Yahoo, Mail.bg, Apple mail
In the Shop category you can set:
- send & reply email for corresponding with your clients
- unsubscribe URL for unsubscribing option on your website
In the Shop interface we set up how many emails a user can receive per day:
Max Emails Per Day – is the selected maximum number of emails sent per user per day from all active campaigns. After this number is reached, any outstanding emails will be automatically rescheduled for the next day
If you want to start a new campaign in parallel but a user profile hits the daily email limit for emails, then the email/emails from the old campaigns will be deprioritized and automatically transferred to the next day. If all emails cannot be sent again the next day, then Releva moves them accordingly to the same strategy. Emails can be rescheduled multiple times until the number of reschedules reaches the “Max Reschedules” setting.
Quiet Hours – during these times, no marketing messages will be sent from campaigns and workflows. For example, we have the quiet hours set bet between 10 pm and 09 am, if an email is scheduled to be sent at 10:01 pm it will be rescheduled by Releva for 09:01 am on the next day.
The creation of the email includes a variety of columns, buttons with an integrated link, text entry with an option for different styles. Photo positions can be added and rearranged. Each element of the email design can be configured in different colors, sizes, fonts, styles, etc.:
Recommenders are dynamic – they depend on your preferences and the chosen algorithm – recommended products in the email are loaded just before the sending. Once the email is delivered, the recommender doesn’t change. This means that your email campaign can be fully automated and put on autopilot. Every user will receive different recommended products. Since users continue to interact with the website and product properties such as price, promotions, and others, change the next time this email is sent, users will receive different recommended products.
After you drag and drop the recommenders’ element into the email body, you will see options to specify your preferences in the sidebar.
From the drop-down “Locale” menu you can select the appropriate locale.
You can choose from Algorithm any recommender which you want to use. For more information about recommenders, you can click here.
If you click on “Discounted only” then the system will push only products with a discounted price.
With the “Filter by Category”, you can choose a category keyword (for example “women ”) and then the recommended products in the email will be respectively items with category women. If you want to add more than one category, for instance, “kids” and “women”, you can use the following syntax – “kids|women”.
You can boost the recommenders by a preference for favorite price or favorite category.
The “Responsive design” gives the option “Hide on Desktop”. This means that you can leave visible some of the components on the mobile version and at the same time hide them from the desktop version.
Personalization through Dynamic Fields:
Email personalization is an email marketing technique that allows you to insert tags in the message content that we send to your subscribers. These tags allow us to automatically insert a custom text (the “First Name” of your subscriber for instance) for each recipient from the profile of your collected audience. Check out more info about our Data platform.
To use personalization, you can type it in the email, copy and paste the tag, or use “Merge Tags” in the text mode.
The unsubscribe link is the one added in the Shop interface.
”Switch to HTML” is an HTML editor where you can add the content with even more flexibility and transparency of your features. You may also upload an image and create text content. The steps are as follows:
1. Upload pictures with a campaign keyword so you can find them with a full-text search.

Our data shows that emails are one of the marketing channels with the highest ROI. With Releva you can measure and track this to the last detail. Metrics help you understand and serve your audience better. Also, metrics allow you to observe your sender’s reputation and avoid anti-spam signals. You have a lot of metrics for the campaign on the campaign listing page:
Below is a glossary of all currently available indicators:
Sent – number emails sent in this campaign
Opened – how many emails have been opened by your users/ respectively % of recipients that have opened the email in relation to the sent emails.

Complaints – the number of recipients who marked the email as spam and/or complaints about this email.
The “bounced” or “complained” recipient are automatically removed from the email list. In the next campaign with their segment – no email will be sent to them.
