Benefits of New Integrations
These new integrations are meant to make your marketing faster, easier and more convenient. When you combine different marketing modalities in the right way, you often see exponentially better results. Email marketing also allows you to reach those people who haven’t yet joined the mobile revolution. This includes people who may own mobile devices but don’t do much texting. Even for those customers who are comfortable with both modalities, combining them makes it easier to stay in touch. Someone, for example, may be warmed up by one of your emails and be more receptive to your SMS campaign, or vice versa.
