In today’s constantly changing world, if you’re not moving forward, you’re moving backward.
Consumer expectations change dramatically and constantly, and so must the tools marketers use to power their engagement strategies.

Improve Your Email Open and Conversion Rates with Send Time Optimization
Content might be king, but if an email is ignored, the content just doesn’t matter. Timing is super important when it comes to email, and everyone is different when it comes to opening and reading their mail. Too many marketers rely on educated guess in deciding when to push send.
Powered by the Da Vinci artificial intelligence engine, Maropost’s Send Time Optimization functionality leverages historic customer engagement data to recommend the time for an email delivery. Customers on Maropost Professional or Enterprise can set a campaign to be delivered to recipients at exactly the right day or time that they are most likely to engage.

Turn Site Visitors Into Subscribers with Acquisition Builder
Customers on Maropost Enterprise can effortlessly convert anonymous site visitors into contacts and customers — no development required.
Acquisition Builder is a simple yet powerful way to deploy acquisition forms to any page on your website.
The drag-and-drop editor creates lightboxes that appear as overlays on your designated page.
Forms can appear on any page within your site, and whether a visitor is just clicking in, scrolling, or likely to leave, you can decide exactly when and where to make the form appear.

Set Your Social Media Strategy on Autopilot with Automated Social Campaign Management
Automated Social Campaign Manager enables social media marketers using Maropost Professional or Enterprise to schedule and stream continuous social content.
Rather than scheduling individual posts, the Automated Social Campaign Manager allows you to create a recurring cadence for ‘playlists’ or content categories of pre-crafted, evergreen content to be published to social accounts.
Once all the content within a playlist has been posted at least once, the queue is automatically reshuffled, and the playlist restarts. You have full control over your cadence, too, with the ability to skip, pause, or manually-reorganize their playlists at anytime.

Mobile apps are more important than ever, and now, important in-app user activity can be integrated into Maropost for Marketing, allowing for sophisticated analytics, segmentations, and personalized messages, like:
- Tracking video or article views within a mobile app to gain insight on content that hit home
- Triggered messages or push notifications based on specific in-app actions, like a congratulatory message for completing an in-app level or challenge.

Personalize Your Incentives – Unique Coupon Codes
Consumers love coupons and getting deals on their favorite brands and products, and merchants love converting their site visitors into buyers. What they don’t like is the limited control they have over how the coupons are used or offered.
Maropost has changed that with Unique Coupon Codes. You now have the ability to control how and where coupons are being used, and track who your most loyal customers are.
Once you’ve generated the coupon codes in your ecommerce platform, Maropost will dynamically insert each code into the body of your email.
Create deeper segmentation and give different discounts to your customers, using dynamic personalization to give you the right offer to the right customer.
This is available to all customers on Professional and Enterprise.
