Why Email Marketing fails where Bots Succeed?
Email as a form of digital marketing is slowly getting replaced by chat bots. While the former is impersonal, the latter more relevant to individual users. Email blasts have reduced due to their diminishing scope. Fewer people open these mails due to the over-crowded nature of this space. Chat bots on the other hand allow the marketers to reach the relevant audience at the right time. That is why tech giant Facebook has come up with its own bot within its native Messenger service. Before going ahead, marketers must plan clearly as to what is the image the brand wants to communicate with the outside world. A bot may be used for user acquisition or their retention. Also, the firm has to be clear about the strategy of the bot usage, whether for the purpose of audience engagement or driving final sales. The frequency and duration of communication also needs to be planned. Similarly, questions must be framed of whose answers the brand requires. Three excellent usages of bots for marketing have been the ones for Nordstrom holiday, Nike Jordan and for Bud Light.

Setting the Standard for excellent Customer Service: Four Technologies to Employ
Four technologies have been identified which can help organizations to provide lifelong service to customers. The first one of them is fairly simple being help desks. These are information centres from where all solutions are first identified and then passed on to concerned resource persons. The next such solution includes Artificial Intelligence (AI) Chatbots as well as Facebook Messenger Bots. These tools help gain authentic information about customers so that personalized services may be provided to them. Chatbots such as Botsify and Many Chat may even be integrated with Facebook’s native Messenger service. This avoids overwhelming of the service provider from all corners so that relevant solution may be provided. This data collected also serves the purpose of serving up genuine business intelligence to the management team. Pass word recovery is another activity which can be outsourced to technology.

Break through 5 common barriers to Contextual Marketing and connected Experiences
Five major obstacles have been identified which hinder the execution of contextual marketing. First of all there is a time lag in data analysis which prevents marketers from instantly responding to market signals. Customer profiles or buyer personas are also short-lived as tastes and preferences change constantly. These customer profiles are also incomplete as different data points bring out distinct bits of information, all of which do not join due to their disparate connect. This leads to the business analytics derived not delivering the full picture. Even the identity graphs cannot be owned by the marketers as they vary across platforms or channels. Solutions to these have also been recognized. The brand’s ID graph must always be turned on so that customers can be instantly recognized and disbursed relevant content accordingly. The data and its ensuing numbers need to be protected as they may be required over multiple campaigns or repeat cases. The customer profiles created need to be holistic so that they can survive against multiple campaigns, devices, platforms and also over time. The minutest details must be recorded in it especially historical activity to get wholesome business intelligence.

Eight Considerations for Connecting with Customers through Email Newsletters
Newsletters sent by email have become an effective way of digital marketing. But before plunging headlong, there are certain considerations that the marketers will need to be wary of. Newsletters can lead to customer acquisition as opposed to social media which is more of an engagement tool. They must inform but also inspire the readers.

Marketers must understand that as part of such campaigns, the aim has to be to become ubiquitous. In addition to newsletters, the brand must create the convergence factor by asserting presence on Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and Twitter amongst others. However, the newsletter must never prove to be a tool for only broadcasting company news. Instead it must also have some educational content. If the content is right, the accompanying email is also crucial beyond the newsletter alone. The newsletter meanwhile needs to be optimized for the mobile phones as that is where the majority will get opened in. In spite of the vigorous changes in the market, email has still been identified to be the top converter, being inexpensive and yet providing three times better conversion ratio than social media.
