Split testing for real results

Text both ways

Your prospects and customers can respond to your texts, and you can trigger automation based on keywords to send resources, reminder texts, or anything else you can think of.

Send at the right time

Know that your emails will be delivered shortly after you send them instead of within hours, and schedule sends in your recipients’ time zones so they get messages when the timing’s right.

You’re in control of your messages

Send messages to individuals or masses, manually or automatically, and with high-design or text-only. You have full control.

Send your emails any way you want

Type a one-off email to anyone and send it with just a click, schedule an email to go to a group of contacts, or set up strings of emails to be sent automatically on a timed frequency.

Look good on any device

Your emails will be readable and attractive whether someone checks them from their phone, tablet or desktop.

Be personal, at scale

Know what’s working at a glance for faster, better decisions about course corrections and optimizations.

Represent your brand

Keep your messages consistent by copying sections of your emails, such as headers and footers, into all your emails, and set your brand’s colors and fonts so they’ll always be there.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is marketing automation and why is it so important?

Marketing automation is technology that manages repetitive marketing tasks and complex campaigns so you don’t have to. This software allows you to automate your communication with leads and customers throughout the customer lifecycle, from their first touchpoint to post-purchase.

When paired with a CRM that collects data about your leads and customers, your marketing automation software can use that data to deliver engaging, effective experiences across multiple channels. Whether you use email marketing, SMS messages, postcards or a combination of them all, marketing automation will give you the power to turn more leads into customers — without managing the whole process manually.

What is a digital marketing funnel?

Digital marketing funnels are like road maps that your prospects follow until they eventually convert into loyal customers. You can create all kinds of funnels depending on your business and strategy, however most center around the five customer lifecycle stages: Attract, Convert, Fulfill, Delight and Refer.

With marketing automation, your leads and customers will move from one stage to the next based on their interactions with your business. For example, your marketing platform can bump a contact to their next lifecycle stage automatically after they reach milestones like signing up for your newsletter or making a first purchase. The best part is, it all runs on autopilot after you set it up, which gives you the power to scale faster.

Why should I launch an SMS marketing campaign?

There are lots of reasons to send bulk SMS messages to your leads and customers, but one of the most compelling is their sky-high open rates. Research shows that 95% of SMS messages are read within three minutes of receiving them — which means you can run campaigns and encourage leads and customers to take action in real-time. Plus, leads and customers are far more likely to redeem your coupons and offers if they’re sent via SMS messages, which makes bulk SMS marketing an ideal strategy for boosting engagement.

Where can I find additional email marketing automation best practices?

We have lots of resources on our blog and Support Center for getting more of your emails into the inbox and optimizing your content. You can also check out this article to learn specific practices for boosting delivery rates, like using a custom domain, creating strategic content, keeping an engaged list and more.
