Powerful Release Features​

Einstein Engagement Frequency

No doubt, customers today receive more messages in their inboxes than ever and it is surely something that is hard to tackle at times. Companies, on the other hand, often struggle to have a clear view of the emails transferred internally.

With the new release, Marketing Cloud offers a customized way to manage the engagement processes of organizations across the world effortlessly.

It is worthwhile to note here that your business may at an increased risk of losing out on potential customers if the target audience is under-targeted. Furthermore, your business email address also runs the risk of being marked as spam if your sales and marketing teams have a habit of bombarding customers’ inboxes on a regular basis. To deal with such situations, Salesforce comes up with solutions to manage the communication strategy: Einstein Engagement Frequency.

Einstein engagement frequency will allow you to identify the right frequency for each consumer. It makes it easy for you to identify the contacts who are receiving fewer emails than others or others who are receiving too many emails.

I also found this feature really exciting as we can now interact with customers through different forms of communications without impacting the unsubscribe rate. Now, we can easily understand at what point contacts become email overloaded and where they are receiving messages.


Another good point is that we can easily target the most active and easily engageable subscribers with additional offers. Additionally, we can even create a data extension for over and under messaged subscribers.

Content Builder

Wasn’t it a head-scratching task to find your emails earlier?

But, now you can locate your emails faster with the Content Builder library. You can click subscriber preview for personalization and code rendered for an individual while creating a message in Content Builder or Journey Builder. By doing this, you can preview the personalized message that will be sent to the subscribers. Earlier, it was difficult to find out emails with different subject lines but now you can easily see the emails with their subject lines.
