Brand Wings Strengthens Its Sales Enablement Platform with Email Campaign Builder

Brand Wings | January 07, 2022

Brand Wings today announced the launch of Email Campaign Builder, a powerful new feature included in the Brand Wings sales enablement platform. Email Campaign Builder makes it easy for sales representatives to send highly personalized brand-compliant emails to their contacts in any volume and receive analytics on the campaign’s effectiveness.

“While there are many email marketing software platforms in the market, one feature that most lack is brand control,” said Jason Kammes, Chief Revenue Officer of Brand Wings. “Those other programs allow users to upload nearly any logo, image, or digital asset into the email template, regardless of whether those assets are brand compliant. Brand Wings, with its Email Campaign Builder feature, solves those problems for brands.”

“While there are many email marketing software platforms in the market, one feature that most lack is brand control,” said Jason Kammes, Chief Revenue Officer of Brand Wings. “Those other programs allow users to upload nearly any logo, image, or digital asset into the email template, regardless of whether those assets are brand compliant. Brand Wings, with its Email Campaign Builder feature, solves those problems for brands.”

Previously, sales and marketing teams often became frustrated in managing email campaigns that require both content customization and brand compliance. “Effectively, there was a trade-off between user flexibility and brand control,” Kammes added. “Brand Wings changes that by allowing only brand compliant assets to be used in email campaigns while also allowing content customization.”

How Email Campaign Builder works;

Using the intuitive Brand Wings portal, the brand’s portal administrator can design and edit an email campaign by simply building a template that automatically loads the brand’s correct logo and other digital assets. The administrator can then customize the email content and maintain multiple versions of the campaign.

Sales teams can access the template and send their email campaigns to their contacts. The template contains merge tags that automatically personalize the content using brand guidelines.

Plus, both the brand manager and the sales teams can view real-time analytics about the effectiveness of the email campaign. The Brand Wings activity stream shows when the sales rep sent out a particular email campaign and other details such as clicks, downloads, bounces, or unsubscribe actions.

In addition to the feature of Email Campaign Builder, the Brand Wings sales enablement platform offers sales teams many other benefits, including:
  • Brand asset management in one central location for all brand marketing content such as presentations, case studies, documents, images, and videos. Sales teams can easily locate, download, or distribute the assets they need when they need them.
  • One-to-one asset personalization allows brands to define templates (PDF, PowerPoint, or Word) that can be customized or co-branded according to the business rules defined. Sales teams are empowered to easily create on-brand, personalized content for their customers and leads.
  • Brand Wings Analytics provides real-time business intelligence into sales operations and marketing effectiveness. Easy-to-understand dashboards provide dynamic targets and KPI’s.
Email Campaign Builder feature is now generally available to all current and prospective Brand Wings portal customers.

Influ2 Releases Buying Group Marketing Report, Showcases Benefits of Personalized Marketing That Goes Beyond ABM

Influ2 | July 08, 2022

Influ2, the first Person-Based Advertising (PBA) platform, released its Buying Group Marketing report in partnership with B2B Marketing. The report shares how Buying Group Marketing improves sales strategies, experiences and results while building on an Account-Based Marketing (ABM) approach. Since its development in the early 2000s, ABM has helped organizations close deals faster by improving the customer journey. However, as modern customers expect a more relevant experience, a new approach is necessary. The Influ2 report finds that BGM is the natural evolution of ABM, as it establishes new ways to engage buying groups and key decision-makers inside target accounts. According to Forrester, “many organizations have already evolved or are evolving processes and technologies to account for buying groups; those organizations have meaningful competitive advantage over those who do not.” The Buying Group Marketing report explains how to establish key audiences within a buying group, how to engage with customers through relevant content and experiences, and how BGM unites sales and marketing teams through unified metrics and messaging alignment. “Our goal with Influ2 has always been to boost pipeline for sales and marketing teams by delivering depth and relevance to customers,” said Dmitri Lisitski, CEO and Co-Founder of Influ2. “Our goal with Influ2 has always been to boost pipeline for sales and marketing teams by delivering depth and relevance to customers,” said Dmitri Lisitski, CEO and Co-Founder of Influ2. “Buying Group Marketing addresses exactly what the modern consumer wants: relevant and engaging content delivered through a personalized approach. BGM presents an advanced approach to customer engagement that helps to keep pace with competitors vying for customers’ limited attention.” According to the report, organizations that use BGM to focus engagement on the buying group improve the likelihood of converting prospects to customers while also increasing contract values and the speed of the buying process. Efficiency and high conversion rates drive the BGM approach. “BGM isn’t reinventing ABM,” Lisitski said. “It’s the next step to humanizing the sales process and connecting with the people behind a business. Businesses aren’t selling to businesses they are selling to people, and companies that understand this and adjust strategy accordingly will succeed.” Individual interviews conducted to develop the report will be released as a five-part podcast series over the coming weeks. This announcement follows the news that Influ2 was recently cited as an early stage B2B solution in the “New Tech: Account-Based Marketing, Q1 2022” report by Forrester.

About Influ2 Influ2 is a Person-Based Advertising platform for B2B companies that is purpose-built for B2B marketers who want to amplify their enterprise reach and revenue.
