Multi-channel marketing automation allows organizations across all industries to increase engagement with their audiences. Between email, fax, SMS, voice, and social media, multi-channel marketing automation provides options for engagement, which widens the scope through which new leads and contacts can be reached. So, with access to these channels through multi-channel marketing automation, how can it be used effectively to increase overall engagement?
Here are the top three things you need to know in order to use multi-channel marketing automation to increase engagement with your audience.
Identify preferred communication methods
The members of your audience each likely have a preferred communication method. By identifying what it is for each individual, you’re able to ensure they receive messages from you through that communication method, which increases engagement because the recipient is more likely to view the message.
Cross-promote your options
Maybe your email list doesn’t know that you offer SMS reminders or flash sales, so let them know. Cross promotion allows you to get the word out about your multi-channel offerings and expand the audience for each.
Have a plan
It may seem obvious but have a plan for how you want to leverage each channel. Email is great for long-from content, SMS is perfect for short reminders/alerts. Essentially, know what you want to accomplish with each channel.
