Email workflows offer businesses multiple benefits, especially when it comes to webinar email marketing. These workflows respond to recipient actions and trigger a series of automated emails that can be sent to contacts before, during, and after the webinar. Your automated emails can be used to maximize engagement for your webinar, bring in more attendees, and build your customer database.
In our recent webinar, How to nurture and convert webinar leads to prospects and customers, we shared a few insights on how to use triggered email workflows can be used to maximize webinar engagement.

What is Topic while activating workflow?
Using Zoho Campaigns, you can categorize your mailing list under different topics so you send your contacts the right emails. They can choose the topics they want to hear from you. This will also let your contacts know the different types of email newsletters that you offer and allow them to choose the type that interests them. Read more
What is the use of contact scoring and how do you decide the score?
With the help of contact scoring, you can split the contacts and move them to a different mailing list and update fields based on scoring. For example, if you want to remove the contacts who have 0 scores from any of your mailing lists, you can use the segment option to split them based on the score. For any action, you can add or remove a score. Read more
Can I schedule my webinar emails from Zoho Campaigns?
Yes, you can schedule your emails using Zoho Campaigns. There are four options in Zoho Campaigns that will help you to schedule your emails:
Fixed Time and Time Zone – The campaign will be launched to your recipients’ inbox at the date and time that you specify.
Recipients’ Time Zone – The campaign will be launched to your recipients’ inbox according to the recipient’s time zone.
Recipients’ Optimal Open Time – Optimal time for each recipient will be calculated based on their past three open time patterns. Once you schedule the emails, it will be delivered to your recipients within the next 24 hours of when they’re likely to open it.
Send in Batches – The campaign will be scheduled in batches at time intervals you specify. Batch sending will help to send emails to your contacts without straining your server and affecting your sender reputation.
