Autoklose Integration

Create a CSV containing all your audience information and generate unique links for Nexweave media for each row of information. Import this CSV to Autoklose to share personalised and interactive content at scale!

For our demonstration, we are sharing a personalised image in an email that hyperlinks to a video landing page.

Let’s begin by creating a new campaign on Nexweave. If you are new to creating Nexweave campaigns, you can have a look at our campaign documentation here



Configure a new Nexweave Campaign



  1. Within the Nexweave platform, start by navigating to Campaigns and click on Create New Campaign.
  2. Set the Campaign Name and select the Campaign Type. You can read more about the available campaign types here. Since we aim to use both Image and Video templates as a part of our campaign, we selected the campaign type as Image + Video. However, you may choose either Image or Video campaigns, based on your preferences.
