At our monastery, we monks constantly try to keep up with the latest trends happening in our world of automated technology aka emails and recently, we couldn’t help but notice how email campaigners have started shedding static content for more personalized and dynamic email data.
For those of you wondering what we’re chanting about, a dynamic content is a powerful way to automatically target your email campaign content to each individual recipient. It is tailor-made for individuals and unlike static files; it repeatedly refreshes the content carrying dynamic tags as the page or email is displayed to the viewer.
