Let me show you 5 simple steps to create customized emails in WooCommerce with product recommendations.
Installing and activating ShopMagic
The free version of ShopMagic can be downloaded from the WordPress repository. You can also download it from your WordPress dashboard just like other plugins.💡 For the sake of saving time, I won’t be writing here a full guide on how to install and activate our add-ons. If you have any problems, we have an excellent article available in our documentation, which should be helpful.
Creating a new automation
In the ShopMagic menu, click on Add new. It will open a new window in your dashboard.
Here, you will be creating the automation for the WooCommerce product recommendation email. From the available events select Order Completed ⬇️.
➡️ Select the Recheck order status before run option, to be 100% sure, that the order status did not change before the automation started.
➡️ Do not forget to add a title. It’s entirely up to you, how you title your new automation.
Adding a filter to your product recommendation email
WooCommerce product recommendation email is an example of automation, where assigning a filter is a very good idea. Thanks to the filter we will be targeting a specified product with our email. You will be able to connect the order for product A and send a product recommendation email for product B.⭐ HINT: Part of ShopMagic PRO is an Advanced Filters add-on. This add-on comes with lots of additional filters. If you prefer to target a specified category instead of an item, with Advanced Filters it will be a breeze.
Creating an action for WooCommerce product recommendation email
The final part of our automation. As always, screenshot comes first, so take a look at my configuration:
We are starting with selecting a type of action. Select Send email. It’s the best choice for our example.
You can write your description to distinguish this automation from similar ones. As you can see in my screenshot, I described mine as a WooCommerce product recommendation email and added a product name.
Now it’s time to delay an email. I delayed mine for 4 weeks. It’s enough time to get acquainted with the item. On the other hand, four weeks is a good time to remind customers about your store 😜
Field To is for the recipient. Initially, it’s filled with placeholders. Subject and Heading also support placeholders, so feel free to use them.
You can choose from WooCommerce Template and none in the Template field.
The Message field also supports placeholders. In this field, we will write a message to the customer, with our product recommendations.
It wasn’t that hard, don’t you think? Our newly created automation for WooCommerce product recommendation email is ready to be sent. You can test it with a Send test feature.
Of course, you can use ShopMagic as your WooCommerce product recommendation engine by sending multiple email campaigns.
