The first one, that's a very important one is the ability to sync your contacts usually from Google or the email that you use. A lot of people use Gmail or GSuite or Google Apps for work.

We’re happy and excited to introduce Bloominari’s new pricing model, which we’d like to call “Seeds of Growth”. As 2017 was coming to an end, and 2018 began, our team believed that we needed to use a new pricing model that would continue to align with our company’s mission to help our clients bloom online and provide transparency, while giving our team the ability to improve the use of our resources and efficiency to better serve our clients.
Today, we live in a world where we’re getting accustomed to getting things done faster: whether that’s finding the information we’re looking for, solutions to our problems, or receiving products we’re buying online within a couple of days or hours. Yet today, most businesses seeking pricing for marketing services still have to go through a complex and time consuming process in order to receive a quote or price approximation.
Today I'm going to quickly go over five benefits of email marketing automation. This is basically the idea of why you should be doing marketing automation. Most of it is usually done by email, so let's discuss.
1. One of the most important benefits of automating your marketing is the fact that you can save a lot of time and thus also a lot of money, once you do complete setting up your email campaigns? Why? Because there's going to be a lot of things being done automatically without you having to manually send emails. So that's benefit number one.
There’s a great film out there called Any Given Sunday that is one of the greatest American sports films to date. It surrounds a fictional American Football Franchises of America Team that is struggling to have a successful season. In a game leading up to the playoffs he gives a speech about how football is ultimately a “game of inches” and how they must be willing to fight for each and every inch to move forward, because when you ad up all those inches it’s gonna make the difference between winning or losing. Digital marketing is the same way.
The first step is that you want to make sure that you're going to become an expert in your specific topic or industry. Why? Because people are going to be attracted to your content based on your expertise. So you want to make sure that you really first think about, what it is that you want to share with the world before you start creating your email marketing or general automation campaign. So the first step within that step is to make a list of topics that you commonly talk about with your customers.
What it is that you normally share with people that you're talking about, that's usually the same thing that you should be talking about through your emails or through your marketing automation? You got to keep in mind that you are here to solve people's or companies' pain points. So you want to think about what content would I share that will directly relate to how I'm helping people. So keep that in mind whenever you're going to be listing the different types of topics or things that you want to talk about.
