Lead Liaison Announces New User Experience for Marketing Automation

Lead Liaison has announced a simplified version of their user interface giving businesses a “Google Apps-like” experience when setting up marketing automation assets and strategies

Lead Liaison, a software as a service company that helps businesses improve efficiency in sales and marketing operations, announced today a major improvement in user experience with a redesigned user interface. The new user interface builds on Lead Liaison’s industry position as the easiest to use and easiest to buy marketing automation platform. Although the company sees marketing automation as a strategy, not software, and brands their platform as Revenue Generation Software®, it’s feature-rich platform stacks up to other industry leaders delivering only marketing automation. The company expects to accelerate adoption of its platform because of its new, innovative and improved user experience.

The new user experience gives customers a “Google Apps-like” feeling when inside the application, making it easier to navigate. Working with the software is more intuitive than ever. The company has grouped capabilities into four logical areas: create, process, manage and administer. The user experience is also highly configurable and customizable, unlike anything to date in the industry. Other systems, such as Marketo, require full-time admins, or even 3rd parties, to setup and manage the system. Having dedicated resources on these types of systems just inflates total cost of ownership, which reduces the return on marketing automation. With a more intuitive and elegant UI, users will shorten their learning curve, save money and be more satisfied overall.

In a follow on release the company plans to release a tagging feature. Tagging is a modern way to stay organized. By tagging prospects, marketing assets, Lead Liaison Campaigns and Programs and other components in the system companies will be able to more easily locate important items. Combined with their highly configurable, and easy to use software Lead Liaison continues to distance themselves from competitors that move in the opposite direction by overcomplicating the user experience.

Lead Liaison to Offer Text Messaging Automation

Automated text messaging via Twilio technology creates new possibilities for responsive marketing.

Allen, TX (PRWEB) June 03, 2014 – Lead Liaison, a sales and marketing automation solutions company, announces the inception of its text messaging feature technology via Twilio solutions. Current customers now have the power of texting technology available via Lead Liaison’s drag and drop interface, further positioning the company as the easiest to use solution in the industry.

Twilio is a flexible communications platform that allows users to text in bulk. Texts can be scheduled from within Lead Liaison to segmented lists with specific messaging specified by the end user, personalizing each text message using Lead Liaison tokens. This allows the sender to send marketing messaging based on a desired outcome such as further sales, re-engaging with the company or taking advantage of a specific offer.

The addition of text messaging strengthens Lead Liaison’s multi-channel marketing capability, giving users the ability to send targeted texts along with direct mail (postcards), email and promotional marketing items – deepening their offering around online and offline marketing. The service is intended to be flexible and to add value to current marketing automation properties.

Lead Liaison VP of Customer Success, Alan Page, spoke Monday on the benefits of utilizing text technology: “We’re excited to integrate another marketing channel for our customers. Text messages are like no other marketing method. Instead of traditional broadcast marketing facilities like email, text messaging is a form of narrowcast marketing. People check their cell phones 150 times per day on average. With 98% of all text messages being opened – you can bet our customers messages will get read. When used for very narrow, targeted marketing it’s highly effectively. The good news is that Lead Liaison enables companies to target their customers in a microscopic way, using demographics, social and behavioral information to pair down their audience.”

We’re combining direct mail with email and text messaging to showcase our multi-channel capability and give prospective clients a vision for what they can achieve. Our return on follow-ups from these postcards has been stellar thus far. We look forward to helping other companies achieve similar results and are already rolling this out with a home maintenance company.

New Flexible and Powerful Marketing Resource: The Social Append Feature

Allen, TX (PRWEB) February 14, 2014 - Lead Liaison is proud to announce a new feature in the system that allows users to gather relevant information via social networking sites and ultimately reach a more targeted market directly. With the Social Append feature, Lead Liaison allows for a much greater opportunity for marketers to leverage data in the CRM: connecting social media. Lead Liaison’s new feature supports over 110 social networks, including Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, and Klout, to name a few.

This new feature allows marketers to add social media links to the prospects’ profile records in the system. Adding this information brings all the data associated with the social networks into Lead Liaison and allows marketers to set up an automation directed to a particular audience. For example Social Append will gather the number of Twitter followers, and then from there the marketer can choose to send a tweet out to any followers that have 50+ followers. This allows the marketer to have a much more segmented database and allows for greater lead closure and higher conversions. From Twitter alone, the Social Append feature can gather five new pieces of data to save to the database: number of followers, URL, username, biography, and ID. Data from the social networks associated with each profile allows for the marketer to filter criteria for the targeted group.

With the addition of the Social Append feature, the profile record of each prospect contains very detailed information, from the basics of their business title, location, and gender, to much more specific and targeted details such as other websites they are involved with, organizations they are part of, and Klout topics of interest. This feature also gives Lead Liaison access to all of the photos associated with this prospect’s social accounts. The data gathered from this new feature has endless possibilities for the driven marketer. Sales teams will also benefit by having a richer set of information on their prospects. They’ll have more intelligence and a deeper understanding of who they’re selling to.

Lead Liaison Announces New Breakthrough in Content Management

Allen, TX (PRWEB) January 23, 2014

Lead Liaison takes the lead in innovation once again. The marketing automation company announced today the launch of their new Automatic Publishing feature, which enables users to automatically publish content through the automated marketing platform. The new feature allows access to over 2,000 content developers, so marketers can request content and manage distribution with ease.

Recent studies show that companies using a marketing automation platform have a 53% higher conversion rate than non-users (Aberdeen Group). Also, the use of marketing automation technology is expected to grow 50% by 2015 (SiriusDecisions). That’s why Lead Liaison goes a step further, and integrates content creation with marketing automation, to reduce the marketer’s stress of having to create content in-house.

“The growth of automated marketing platforms is inevitable,” said Alva Cardona, VP of Corporate Communications for Lead Liaison. “And, because we know that the use of marketing automation platforms will increase, we decided to add content creation and automatic publishing features, which provides the marketer with more resources to nurture leads,” added.

Research shows that, when leads are nurtured, a 20% increase in sales is reported, compared to non-nurtured leads (DemandGen Report). With this new feature, users can create more than ten types of marketing content to nurture leads, such as tweets, Facebook posts, blog posts, press releases, articles, video scripts, and more, which can be requested to a team of writers, who work to satisfy your specific content needs. Also, feedback (and edits) can be provided as the content is being developed.

When requesting content through Lead Liaison’s automated marketing platform, users can designate specific topics, industries, keywords, and references. In addition, users can track progress of content requests using multiple filters as well. After content is ready, it can be published automatically using the Lead Liaison Social Post feature, pushed to the most popular Content Management Systems (CMS) on the web, such as WordPress, Joomla! and Drupal or it can be saved to your company’s cloud drive, such as Google Drive or DropBox.

It is a fact that 71% of marketers already use content marketing for lead generation, and it is expected that the marketing automation market will grow from $3.2 billion in 2010 to $4.8 billion in 2015 (International Data Corporation). That’s why ¼ of all B2B Fortune 500 companies are already using automared marketing platforms. Marketers will discover Lead Liaison’s Content Creation and Automatic Publishing feature will immensely help their content (and marketing) strategies.

To learn more about Lead Liaison’s innovative automatic publishing feature, request a 10-minute demo of this content creation solution.

Lead Liaison provides cloud-based marketing and sales automation solutions that help businesses worldwide attract, convert and close leads. The company markets to businesses of all sizes and focuses on creating the broadest and most user-friendly Revenue Generation Software® platform.

Lead Liaison Leaps Competitors with Easiest to Use Marketing Automation Software

Lead Liaison continues to make strides as the easiest to use marketing automation software in the industry. The company announced major enhancements to its user interface and user experience including more tightly integrated email marketing and surveys as well as blank slates that include explainer videos, tips, shortcuts and help.

According to the Marketing Automation Report by Holger Schulze, which surveyed close to 1,000 B2B marketers, 56% of marketers looked at cost of ownership and 50% considered ease of use/learning curve when asked what criteria they used to evaluate marketing automation platforms. Since ease of use plays an important factor in lowering total cost of ownership and reducing learning curves, Lead Liaison has stepped up its investment in this area to make the experience better and further separate themselves from competitors.

Other industry providers such as Marketo, HubSpot and Act-On have complicated interfaces and complex user experiences that lack continuity. Moreover, most marketing automation vendors refer customers to third parties for training and consulting with their platforms, resulting in higher total cost of ownership. Conversely, Lead Liaison’s user experience is amazingly consistent across key capabilities of marketing automation, including lead nurturinglead scoringlead gradinglead distribution and more – a unique advantage for customers. The company also prides itself on providing unlimited, complementary training to drive adoption whereas others charge for training.

One challenge marketing automation vendors have had is getting users to adopt more of the platform. The 80-20 rule is in play with marketing automation. Eighty percent of the people who have it use only 20% of its capability. Lead Liaison expects to turn the table on these numbers with a goal of getting all users using at least 80% of the platforms features.

We’re so excited about our new user experience. It’s going to make it much easier for our customers to tap into new features. The blank slates for each major category (nurturing, scoring, etc.) provide help videos, tips, shortcuts and more. Inline video support within our application is one-of-a-kind in the industry. We’re totally pumped to see a new level of engagement from these improvements as well as an influx of new prospects that realize the benefit of shorter learning curves and lower total cost of ownership.
