Newsletter2Go also allows us to divide (“cluster”) newsletter recipients based on different categories. The newsletter recipients can, for example, be subdivided by age, gender or place of residence. In this way, newsletters can be better adapted to the respective target groups. For detailed information about the features of Newsletter2Go, please refer to the following link:
