Journeys (formerly called Workflows) are automated messaging sequences that help you create seamless, personalized customer experiences. Journeys let you orchestrate entire brand interactions, so you can send the right message to the right user at every touchpoint.
With journeys, you can send your users messages, wait for them to open them, personalize their experience based on their attributes or behavior, update your users' subscription preferences, and send or retrieve data from third-party services.
You can use journeys to build things like:
- Welcome sequences
- Cart abandonment sequences
- Special offers and promos
- Birthday or anniversary sequences
- And so much more!
