Boost your marketing efforts

Automation is a key component of modern marketing, and it's no longer a nice-to-have, its become a must-have for any successful brand. It enables marketing complexity alongside operational efficiency, ensuring each customer receives carefully targeted communications at the perfect time. Automation streamlines processes so you can communicate with your customers at scale through multiple channels to keep them loyal and engaged. Not to mention it also encourages them to keep spending money with you.

Vouchers and coupons are extremely useful tools to offer customers value while increasing purchasing frequency and growth. Use vouchers in your Apteco campaigns, from discounts and bundling coupons (buy one get one free), to online and mobile coupons to be redeemed via a smartphone.

Better nurturing of leads
Better nurturing of leads

Prospects need on average approximately seven touch points before they are ready to buy from you, and contacting them too frequently can annoy them. Multi-stage lead nurturing takes the right timing into account, factoring in behavioural insights and the average time it takes to make a purchase.

Optimise campaigns with split testing

Also known as A/B tests, split tests are a great way to see which email, subject line, landing page or banner generates the best results. Two variations are shared with a small but significant audience, and the best performing version is sent to the rest of the group.

Build brand awareness
Build brand awareness

Automation is a powerful tool for building brand awareness. Automating campaigns means you can consistently reach customers with content that is relevant to who they are and where they’re at in their buyer's journey. This helps to remind customers of your brand, your ethos and your message.

Drive conversions

Email automation is an effective way to drive conversions without the need for manual effort. Trigger automated campaigns to respond immediately to customer interactions, for example if they abandon an item at the checkout, this provides the perfect opportunity to recover a sale.

Improved customer retention

One way automation can improve customer retention is through customer feedback. Send surveys to customers automatically once they’ve received their order, to understand their buying experience and how they found your service. Then you can make any necessary changes for improved customer retention.

Precisely trigger your campaigns

Gone are the days when linear campaigns can be planned six months in advance. Customer journeys are now more likely to be event-triggered with a combination of push and pull channels in play. And the complexity of managing customer interactions across multiple channels based on event triggers can only be mastered with the aid of analysis and automation tools. For example, an online basket cancellation on your website could be the trigger for a multi-step campaign to remind a customer to complete the order, or a customer's birthday, purchase anniversary or reaching a set number of loyalty points could trigger a special offer.

Email event trigger workflow

Seize the initiative

Marketers want to take action proactively when customers initiate triggers. After all, the right communication at the right time is the golden rule of data-driven marketing. Time-based, internal or external event triggers can start a campaign at any moment, with communications increasingly being played out in real-time. 
Automation ensures a hands-off approach to customer engagement, so it doesn’t need you or your team to monitor trends or data to send well-timed communications. And manual processes can face lengthy delays, which means you’re more likely to miss out to your competitors.
