A feature-rich email and SMS marketing automation solution

Email remains the main channel for marketing communications in 2020. Quite logical when you consider that 3.9 billion people are using it today, a number that should continue to grow to reach 4.3 billion users in 2023 (Statista).

When we look at the ROI of this communication channel, we understand why Forrester believes that the accessibility, reliability, and cost-effectiveness of email will drive companies to increase their investment in technology. For every euro spent, the return on investment is € 42, according to the Data & Marketing Association, an increase of € 10 over the previous study.

A form editor for managing registrations and qualifications

Gathering and qualifying contact information is the chord of war in this age of hyperpersonalization of messages. For example, if the average open rate of an email is 21%, it jumps to 50% if the subject is personalized (Yes Lifecycle Marketing, 2019). The whole point is therefore to expand your contact base and enrich it with new information. Thanks to its intuitive form editor, the campaign opens up extremely interesting possibilities with all the essential functions for collecting and enriching a contact database.

The forms can be easily edited and integrated into all corporate media (app, blog, website, POS terminal, etc.). The campaign also allows the establishment of automatic confirmation emails to the contact in parallel with the notification of the teams. The solution enables precise management of the roles of users in an organization or project.

These new entry points into the contact base are accompanied by cleanup functions. Campaign thus offers the option of automatically deduplicating contacts, identifying countries based on the telephone code or even correcting syntax errors in emails or domain names, etc.
