8.) Easy-Import content wizard
The import-wizard takes a simple link/URL, and magically imports it into TailoredMail – ready for broadcasting. We grab the title, an image, a snippet of the content, and link it all together.
9.) Time-Release Broadcasting for optimal open-rates
TailoredMail captures each of your subscribers geographic-location when they open/click in an email. That information allows you to optionally send your campaigns across the globe at a specific, universal time. For example, if you want a campaign to deliver at 9am in each subscriber’s local time zone, just click the Time-Release option.
10.) Granular Reporting
TailoredMail includes reporting metrics by device (e.g. iPhone, Outlook 2007, Gmail app), geographic, scoring (e.g. hot, warm cold), website-visits/click-thru’s, form submissions, and segmentation (e.g. interests, themes/keywords) tracking and reporting. We also offer best-time-of-day, best-day-of-week, and a querying tool to mine any set of data and trends.
11.) Built-in landing pages and microsite builder
With just a few clicks, your newsletter articles or campaigns can create intuitive landing-pages in the look and feel you want. Fully mobile-optimized, you can host complete campaigns (content, videos, forms, dynamic images) without IT involvement.
12.) List Hygiene and IP Reputation Management Tools
TailoredMail can automatically segment your users into different levels of engagement (e.g. Active, Mildly Active, Inactive), and let you define how often they can be broadcasted to, as well as assign them different IP addresses to ensure your most-active users always go out on the highest-reputation IP address. This feature can vastly improve your deliverability, and help you keep the cleanand high performing list(s).
13.) RSS-to-email Automated Publisher
TailoredMail can take anyone’s RSS feeds and convert them into dynamic emails/newsletters. This feature can be used for any number of purposes, from automatically pushing out an email after a WordPress blog post, to publishing a detailed topic-based daily newsletter.
14.) Extend content to salespeople, reseller partners, or regional offices
One of the features within TailoredMail is its ability to extend your content to be localized/individualized to your sales teams, reseller partners, or regionally dispersed offices. An example would be to merge your sales team into the corporate newsletter, making it be ‘from’ them, complete with their picture and contact info – as if the email were sent from them.
15.) Multi-language support
TailoredMail has the unique ability to let you create and organize (any) multi-language-versions of your content, widgets, profile-centers, andd landing-pages. Because of our dynamic-content architecture, you can safely create and send to different languages within the same broadcast, if desired.
16.) Dynamic Query Builder, with automated segmentation
Query your database, or create automated segments of your audience based on their profile fields, tracking history, form submissions, lead-score, and more. You can create scheduled actions-to-take based on these results. For example, you are uploading names to TailoredMail via our upload-wizard, FTP-uploader, or API on a daily basis. You can create automated business rules that will perform actions on those new names (or previously uploaded names) – such as segmenting them into different lists, adding them to drip-campaigns, sending alerts to sales.
17.) Automated/Emailed Reports
Send detailed reports on a scheduled timeframe after broadcasts have occurred. For example, you can send an emailed-report to each of your salespeople them showing their assigned contacts click-details within the broadcast. You define what gets sent, to whom, and when/how-often.
We offer a wizard that allows you to perform automated actions when a user clicks a link (or set of links), opens an email, submits a form, achieves a score, and more. Those actions can include things such as; send an auto-responder email, send a lead-alert to sales, adjust a score, change the subscriber’s profile, add/remove them from a list or segment. You can assign these triggers globally across all your campaigns, or granularly within a specific campaign.
19.) Add-to-Contacts Forwarding and Article-level social sharing
This solution lets your subscribers tap into their Outlook, Gmail, Yahoo (and many others) address books to forward your content to multiple people. Ideally suited for running a campaign where you entice your subscriber to virally sharing content – we track these transactions so you can reward them for any successful forwards. For social sharing (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google +, and 15 others), we offer the ability for your subscribers to share individual articles or blocks-of-content within your campaigns – as opposed to only offering the ability to share the entire email.
20.) Sales Team “Responder”
TailoredMail can empower your sales team to send out one-off, fully-tracked, email templates and pre-written content stored in a centralized library. For example, if a lead-alert is triggered based on a prospect clicking on a certain product-page on your website, the salesperson can send out a brochure or webinar invite to them using a simple interface. They get details/alerts about whether the prospect clicked or opened the email.
