Marketing campaign creation in XL.Today
Step 1. Managing product, service & brand assets
It all starts with a product or service. You need an image to illustrate the product or service. This image also needs supporting information, such as brand and product or service details and sizing. With xl.today™ you store all of this information in your Digital Asset Management solution… or ‘DAM’.
One of the real timesavers with your DAM is the ability to provide controlled access to wholesalers, photographers and others involved in content creation. With controlled access, they can upload content that you can then approve for use in campaigns. Your new DAM is a huge time saver and the most effective way to quality control your campaigns
Step 2. Choosing who to target
It starts with your existing customer database. XL.Today™ makes it simple to import your existing database, then improve it.
You start by selecting customers from your existing customer database, by age, gender, or previous purchase. XL.Today™ then saves that database segment to use on your current and future campaigns.
…and as you collect more data on customers, (either through your shopping cart or Point of Sale), xl.today™ allows you to continue to refine your customer targeting and offers.”

Step 4. Scheduling campaigns
XL.Today™ allows you to schedule each element of your marketing campaign to reflect the behaviour of your target audience.
If your customers are more active on their Facebook account at 8pm, you can schedule your post to appear at 8pm. If your customers like to check their messages and email on their smartphone on their way to work, then you schedule emails SMS's to appear while they're in transit.
XL.Today™ allows you to create campaigns when it's most convenient to you, and send them when it's most convenient to your target audience."
