ToutApp Adds Presentation and Website Tracking to Sales Communications Platform

Jan 4, 2013, by Lauren Buchsbaum, Happiness Officer

We've been pretty busy at ToutApp lately - have you noticed? Today we're announcing two additions to our powerful email tracking: attachment and site action tracking.

Email Attachment Tracking

For the average person in marketing or sales, email attachments are incredibly important. They provide compelling content to the recipient, they supplement what can't be said in a short business email, and they're what help sign the deal. If you know your recipients are interested in the content you're providing them with, you have a far better chance of doing business together.

Now we'll let you know when your recipient opens an attachment and is paging around the content. You'll know when they open it, what's most interesting to them, and if they come back to view it again and again (a good sign!). This new attachments platform is called Tout Connect, and we've got some great additions coming to it soon.... so stay tuned.

Here's an example of what one of our trackable attachments looks like:

Getting Started with Trackable Attachments

Tout Connect works in both on our website and in Gmail and Google Apps

1) To attach a trackable email, go compose an email, and then click either the "Link" or "Link to File" buttons.

     

2) Choose your attachment and send it out. We support PDF, Word docs, and Powerpoint presentations.

3) Hit "Send" and fire up your Live Feed. You'll see your recipients as they open and page through your attachments. 

Site Tracking Actions

We rolled out our Site Tracking feature a few months ago to let you know when your email recipients independently visit your website.

We rely heavily on Site Tracking internally at ToutApp to see when prospects visit our pricing, "About Us", and trial account pages. However, we quickly realized that there's more to site tracking than just browsing around pages on your website. Now Site Tracking will alert you to the key actions that your leads are taking on your website: buying a product, signing up for an account, downloading an asset, etc etc.

Cool! How do I set it up site actions?

Log into our app and head over to our Site Tracking page in the Integrations pane. Follow steps 1-4.

Site tracking requires you to have access to your website's underlying code. If you don't have access yourself, you'll need to talk to your web administrator to get started. All you'll need to do is paste in some custom Javascript on the pages and action areas you'd like to track.

If you're have any questions, you can always email team@toutapp.com for help.

We hope you get a chance to play around with the new features! As always, we'd love to hear your feedback. And if you haven't had a chance to get started with our app yet, you can start your free trial today.
