Release Notes: Campaigns 2.0 and Other Enhancements

New Year, New Campaigns

As you may have noticed, Campaigns has a new home in ToutApp.com.

And not only does it have a brand new home in our top navigation bar, it also has a brand new create and manage experience.

Going from this:

To this:

In addition to getting its own tab, we’ve added a slew of new features, enhancements and bug fixes to the latest and greatest version of Campaigns.

Including:

  • Easy setup
  • Quick view of who is on a Campaign and their progress
  • A new Campaigns-only Task list
  • Settings to make your Campaign as automated or as personalized as your sales process
  • The ability to kick off a Campaign everywhere you work – Gmail, Outlook, OWA, Salesforce and ToutApp.com

With January still close behind us we are diligent about keeping up with our New Year’s Resolution and continuing to improve Campaigns.

For example, you can now do bulk actions, sort and page through all of your tasks:

But that’s not all, we’ve also made the following improvements across the site:

  • We addressed an issue where phone numbers were showing up as the ‘default (email) address’ in some cases
  • We also fixed an issue where the Salesforce Settings set by a Tout Administer weren’t getting set across the entire team
  • We now delete pending/scheduled emails if a campaign is ended on a reply – previously they were falsely marked ‘failed delivery’
  • Previously, if you were logged into multiple Gmail accounts and Tout at the same time,  Tout didn’t know which email address you wanted to send from. Now, we pass the username you’re logged into in Gmail to Tout to deliver the email. Just make sure you’re on the latest version – ToutApp for Chrome v 8.5

ToutApp Tip: Create Sales Email Campaigns

This best practice on how to use ToutApp is brought to you by one of our awesome users, Levi McClendon from Mobivity. Check out more best practices for how to use Tout here, or you can submit your own tip.

I’ve created a customized email follow-up sequence using the ‘Using this Template in this Category’ feature. I love this option because I can drip on a prospect for as long as I need to without logging back in and sending emails out manually. I’m able to market and prospect to hundreds of clients at a time with very little effort.

Being able to then look at the average views and clicks with these templates helps me tweak my other messages to be more successful with open and click rates.

Our campaigns feature lets you set up a series of emails to go out, one after the other. We’ll automatically send each email and include tracking so that you can see who’s engaging in your live email activity feed.

To to create your own email campaigns, log into ToutApp and click “Edit” next to the email template of your choice. When scrolling down, you’ll see the “Whenever I use this template” dialog box, and you can choose a series of sales email templates to be linked together.
