Total campaign management

Your marketing team can execute multi-channel marketing campaigns, managing every phase of every campaign, with meaningful analysis and measurement. Activities can be viewed, while leads are tracked and followed up with ease.

Keeping on top of your marketing spend

With user-friendly tools and highly graphical reports, you can match sales revenues to specific campaigns and analyse conversion rates by campaign. Marketing budgets can be defined, and over runs flagged up instantly, for pinpoint budget management. Leads, opportunities, and closed sales are all linked back to a marketing campaign, so the direct revenue yield for each programme can be calculated accurately

Creating highly targeted lists

Create or import targeted lists of prospects and customers and segment them based on your own criteria. Helping you to focus your marketing efforts on the prospects that are most likely to purchase, you will increase your ROI and maximise your marketing budget. Campaign responses can trigger sub-lists for the next wave of the campaign, while successful responses are moved to sales and non-responses are removed, or kept on a reminder list, as required.

Making the most of every lead

Never overlook a lead as you can schedule calls for telemarketers, along with triggers for follow-ups dependent on the outcome of each call. Details of the call, such as length and outcome, are stored and can then be shared around the business. With the addition of Call Tracking Integration (CTI) your telemarketers will have access to advanced call automation and recognition tools, giving them the support they need to manage effective and efficient telemarketing campaigns.

Creating effective drip marketing to maximise your message

Helping you to create campaigns that target specific messages to prospects and customers at specific times, you can create a drip effect that will drive your message home harder, and more accurately. By managing the content and timing of your messages in emails or direct mail, you can ensure your messages are dripped in a series applicable to a specific behavior or status of the recipient
