dotdigital is an email marketing and automation platform for marketers, allowing you to manage contacts, send email newsletters, and automate your campaigns.

With the dotdigital app for Beacon, you can keep the two systems in-sync - so there's no need for CSV uploads and manual data entry. And importantly - it means you won't accidentally email someone who's opted out of email communications.

You can also 1-click export people in Beacon to an address book of your choice in dotdigital.

link Features

link Export to address book

Want to send an email to a list of people that you have saved in Beacon? Export people to an address book of your choice in dotdigital, in just a few clicks:

link Subscriber import

When someone subscribes to your list in dotdigital, their details (email, first name, last name) are automatically added as a person in Beacon.

link Sync your opt-outs

When someone unsubscribes from your list in dotdigital, the "Email" channel is automatically removed from the "Contact Preferences" field on the corresponding record in Beacon.

Similarly, when "Email" is removed from the "Contact Preferences" field in Beacon, you don't have to also unsubscribe them in dotdigital - we'll do that for you.

link Automatic export with workflows

help_outline Workflows are a Premium tier feature. If you'd like access to workflows to automate your processes, let us know.

You can also automatically export people to dotdigital (optionally in a particular address book) automatically after they've submitted a Beacon form, using Beacon's workflows feature.

This is particularly useful if:

  • You'd like to automatically add new supporters into dotdigital (no manual exports!)
  • You are using dotdigital's programs feature to send automatic email drip campaigns
