As a social media marketer, your tool is very helpful. It’s very flexible and it’s really easy for me – someone who is not a coder – to develop professional campaigns quickly.”

Marketing Automation vs Autoresponders

Marketing Automation

Automatically send emails to people who submit a form for your contest or landing page. Then stay in touch by sending scheduled emails with personalized messages.

ShortStack’s email templates are easily customizable using our WYSIWYG text editor, or if you prefer, you can add your own HTML.

ShortStack Examples

Action Widget

Customizable workflow

Use ShortStack’s Action Widget to set up your own “if this, then that” scenarios. You control the triggers and the event that follows. For example, “if a user who is interested in your content shares her email address, then she can download a coupon.”

ShortStack features embed


Embed directly to your website

Embedded campaigns get an average of 83 percent more views and 31 percent more entries. More views and entries = more conversions.

Last year’s Winter Raffle generated 5,664 entrants without using ShortStack. So far, in 8 hours, we are over 6,400. We are hoping to easily push 10,000 entrants. This would make it our most successful raffle by far.”
