Usage of Automated Emails
So, with RegistrationMagic, it was quite simple to send an automated email after every WordPress new user registration. You can now send account verification or deletion warning emails to your users.
Also, since there were options to insert link and media to automated emails sending fancy emails with offers and discounts is a cakewalk.
There are also, options to include the username or first name fields of a user in these emails. Thus sending personalized emails on birthdays or special days of your users is now quite an easy task.
This way your users feel prioritized and so they keep coming back to your site. These emails basically, make the relationship between a site and its user more cordial. When users find your site name on their mailbox frequently they tend to visit your site more often. Yet the admin does not need to write every single mail.
Automated emails also come in use if you want to send out words to many people in one go. Whether its an invitation or a sudden meeting in your office. RegistrationMagic’s automated emails can notify all your staff with you having to compose just one mail.
So, rely on this plugin to take care of most of the manual work on your site. As you focus on managing your business more professionally.
