Design customer journeys

Build smart marketing automation programs


Start your customer's journey with an enrollment condition. This could be based on segments or triggered by an online action. Set schedules and limits to ensure the right people enter at the right time.


Drag and drop action nodes into your program to build your customer’s journey. Boost engagement with triggered email and SMS campaigns, and keep your data clean and tidy by updating contacts and address books automatically.


Customize your contact's journey with decision nodes. Trigger different routes depending on activity such as opens, web behavior, or order insight. Plus, give your contacts time to respond by including delay nodes.


Team collaboration is easy thanks to Engagement Cloud's annotation feature. Leave notes in your programs to call out specific nodes or explain your logic.

Exit conditions

Automatically enroll customers onto the next stage of their journey with specific exit conditions. These can be determined by the route they've just completed.

Extend your reach with automated omnichannel marketing

Make an impact with omnichannel messages and effective re-targeting

Facebook Audiences

Funnel unengaged contacts from a program into a new or existing Facebook Audience. Personalize ads based on web behavior and watch customers come flying back.

Google Ads

Unlock your conversion potential by driving contacts to act with hyper-targeted Google Ads.


Integrate SMS messaging into your programs, updating customers on promotions and need-to-know information. This could be an in-store limited offer, appointment confirmation, or product dispatch note.

Mobile messaging

Engage your customers in a way that’s more natural to them. Use channels to send them updates about their order or respond to inbounds with more product information.

Push notifications

Get even closer to your customers by adding push notifications to your automation programs and deliver your message straight into the palm of their hand.

Control and action, on demand

Stop and start

Pause, modify, and re-start your automation program at the click of a button. Enrolled contacts will remain where they are while you make those all-important changes.

Divert contacts

If one route of your program is performing better than another, divert contacts down the most effective path and benefit from the results.

Real-time count

View how many contacts sit at each node and assess your program’s impact. If contacts are persistently held at a particular node, attempt to nudge them by making changes to your campaign.

Split testing

Quantity-split your contacts and send them down separate paths to discover which campaigns and channels work best. Then optimize.
