How to integrate MailerSend with Airtable

What is Airtable?

Airtable is a cloud-based platform that combines the power of a database with the flexibility of a spreadsheet. This makes it a powerful tool for a wide range of tasks, including project management, CRM, customer support, and more.

Airtable's integration with MailerSend makes it easy to create data-driven email campaigns and send a personalized email to an entire Airtable row of contacts with a single click.

MailerSend’s library of responsive templates provides a quick start for sending Airtable HTML emails. With this integration, you can pull data from an Airtable record to personalize emails for individual recipients, making each message more targeted to your Airtable database of contacts.
