Are you regularly reviewing your transactional emails? Here’s why you should.

Almost every brand relies on transactional emails like shipping confirmations, payment reminders, or password resets to keep their business running. Automated emails like these are a crucial component of your subscriber experience—and they often generate a significant share of a brand’s email revenue.
