Merge Tags in MonkeyPod

Merge tags are unique labels that reference specific information stored in MonkeyPod. You can use merge tags to insert personalized information or dynamic content into your email campaigns.

How do I use Merge Tags in my MonkeyPod?

You can personalize your email campaign by including each subscriber's name in the subject line. Instead of a subject line that reads, "Help us take action against plastic pollution!" you could personalize your subject line to read, "Trisha, help us take action against plastic pollution!"

To do that in MonkeyPod, you would use the merge tag ::subscriber.first_name:: as part of your subject line, which automatically replaces the merge tag with the subscriber's first name from the data in MonkeyPod.

In the subject line of your email campaign, you would write:

::subscriber.first_name::, help us take action against plastic pollution!

Here is what it would look like when it arrives in Trisha's inbox:
Trisha, help us take action against plastic pollution!

How do I use Merge Tags in the Body of an Email in my MonkeyPod?

You can also use merge tags in the body of your emails. You can personalize your messages, include a donor's donation amount for a specific time period, or reference information about your email campaign.

You can insert merge tags in the body of your email by clicking on the Merge Tags dropdown list, then selecting which merge tag you would like to insert.
