The Drag and Drop editor allows you create content quickly
  and without fuss. It works on a block system whereby you drag a certain type of block across onto your canvas, and then adjust the content of that individual block until you are happy. You can stack blocks on top of each other until you have finished all content required in your email campaign. You can clone blocks if you have a repetitive theme and just make minor adjustments to the content, while retaining the colours and general formatting. You can also drag blocks around and alter the stack order should you wish. There are a number of pre-defined blocks including a social media block and all the various combinations of images and text. It also allows for the saving of templates so that you can use them as a starting point for future campaigns. The editor also takes care of a far more complex issue, and that is making sure where possible it produces content that displays correctly across the many environments that it might land in, including mobiles and tablets. Our Drag and Drop editor is designed to be very simple to use and will allow you to be able to create and rapidly deploy something professional to your list without any fiddly time consuming formatting issues.

Personalise your Emails

Eshot will allow you to personalise emails to each recipient. You can choose to merge the contact name or other database information into the content of your emails. This includes the main body but also could include the subject line. This strategy results in much higher engagement rates and ultimately better results.

...Expand for more information.

The editor allows you to personalise emails. Depending on the information you hold within your mailing list, and what you choose to upload into Eshot, you are able to merge this information into your campaigns. An example of this is mail merging the first name from the contact database into the body of a campaign. This greatly increases the engagement levels from recipients. This is commonly used for personalisation but does not need to stop there. You can merge anything from a record into the content of your emails, such as the county or town they are based in providing you are storing the information you wish to merge.  These strategies are used to create much higher engagement levels from your recipients and ultimately will filter down to better results. As with all features on Eshot you do not have to integrate them to start marketing, but as your confidence in using the platform grows then by introducing and using some of these features you can ‘squeeze’ more results from your email marketing generally. The “Custom Fields” section within Eshot is where you are able to create Data entry places (better know as fields) for these additional pieces of information. 

Send from our Network/ Dedicated Environment/IP

With all our eShot accounts we provide a dedicated mail server to each and every client. The benefit of this is that no other users on our network can tarnish your sending reputation which results in much higher delivery rates for your emails.

...Expand for more information.

Each and every Eshot customer benefits from having their own dedicated mailserver. The benefits of having your own mail server are enormous. Deliverability of emails  is the number one challenge, if this is already dealt with then learning and refining your strategy is a much simpler process as your results are not clouded with misleading data. We call it “pulling the wrong levers”. If you are looking at a sudden change in open rate or click through rate or general up or downturn in response then it is important that you “pull the right levers” to fix it. If your mail servers sending reputation is moving up and down all the time (As with shared mail server environments) then reading your results and acting upon them in a logical and intelligent way is all but impossible. By having your own mail server there is only one person who can impact on the reputation of its IP and that is you, which makes it much easier to not only deal with IP reputation issues but be able to make good decisions based on the conclusions you come to in other areas of your campaigns. With larger Email server providers it can be ‘Pot luck’ which mail server (IP address) sends your emails, who used it before you and to which list, and this can have a strong bearing on its reputation and could be hampering your email campaigns chance of successful delivery.  All our Eshot clients have a dedicated mailing IP as standard.
