Triggered surveys give you rapid insight into the quality of your customer care, your purchasing process, and ways to improve the user experience. By gathering and analyzing data and feedback from your customers (in real-time, no less), you learn more about them and gain valuable insight as to how you might optimize your email marketing programs to better suit them.

In today’s age of technology, we are constantly bombarded by information. From billboards on the highway to radio advertisements to social media and blog feeds, it seems like the onslaught of information never ends.
For this reason, it’s more important than ever before for a marketer to be able to “hook” their reader. If you don’t have a strong hook that makes a prospect or customer want to read more, there’s little chance of gaining your desired conversion from them.
A properly implemented email marketing campaign works much like a well-oiled machine. It’s effective, only requires a moderate amount of supervision and it produces results.
