How do I insert personalization tags into my campaigns?

Personalizing emails with a contact's name or other custom field information can increase engagement with your communications and improve a contact's experience with your brand.

You can insert personalization tags in the body of any campaign or automation email you create. When the email is sent to a contact, that tag will be replaced by a value specific to the recipient. For example, if you wanted to insert a contact's first name in a campaign, you would use the following personalization tag in an email:

%FIRSTNAME%

When a contact receives your email, they will see their own name populated in the message.
