Take a bite.

Automating for Productivity

On average, employees receive around 200 emails a day and spend around 2.5 hours reading and responding. That’s time spent staring at a screen and potentially being unproductive.

Continuously checking emails is a hard habit to break because receiving emails releases dopamine, a feel-good chemical in our brain.

We feel a small reward when we hear the notification alert of a new communication pinging into our inbox.

Stop the incessant interruptions by introducing email automation.

With massive amounts of data collected and an increasing use of automation software, marketing automation is not only predicted but expected.

Research from EmailMonday (2018) stated that 49% of businesses use some form of marketing automation.

Automating for Customer Engagement

Email automation allows you to send realtime, one-to-one content that strengthens customer engagement, retention and loyalty.

Data Collection: Eliminating human error and manual data entry by automatically collecting, uploading, or syncing data into a system of record.

Relevance: Smart workflows power targeted customer interactions. As a result, the content they receive is highly relevant to them and they’re more likely to open and engage with the email.

Statistics show that triggered emails, have a 70.5% higher open rate and a 52% higher click-through rate than generic newsletter emails.

Brand Awareness: Email automation is an extension of the organisation’s brand. It provides the opportunity to strengthen the connection between you and your customers ultimately driving user engagement.

Creativity: When automation replaces the repetitive manual work, it naturally enables employees to have a more creative focus for other tasks.

Lifetime Marketing: By using the automation to plot customer life stages you can overlay the products and services you offer up-selling the business and building organic customer loyalty.
