Marketing Stats, Help Glyphs and more.

Over the last fortnight we’ve rolled out a bunch of small, but kinda cool improvements.  Here’s a brief run down.

Help Glyphs

Marketing Stats

The new email engine we released (read about it here) also allows us to track statistics around email marketing campaigns.

This is now live across all accounts, but remember it will only show for new campaigns.

Still Using Spreadsheets? Here’s Why It’s Time to Graduate to a CRM

One of the most mind-blowing conversations I’ve ever had was with a potential client whose support team used spreadsheets to track everything.
