Integrate your email platform's merge tags directly into your content

In this article, we’re covering how to merge email recipient data into adventrs automatically within your email marketing platform. This is useful for sending invitations, newsletters, and other personalized emails at scale.

Whether you’re using MailChimp, Salesforce, Microsoft 365, or another platform that supports Merge Fields, you can easily integrate your customer data to personalize adventrs at scale with Smart Merge.

For the purposes of this example, we’ll be creating an invitation that will automatically populate our recipient's name based on contact data within our email marketing tool.
