There’s nothing worse than a generic marketing email, right? That’s why Klaviyo uses data to drive marketing. Its software is used by e-commerce marketers to target, personalize, measure and optimize Facebook and email campaigns. Klaviyo’s mission is to increase audience size — and that means reaching more potential customers. Today, Klaviyo’s technology is used by some of the world’s largest companies, including Lowe’s, Staples and Wal-Mart.
