The first win for Wind Creek came in the elimination of the expenditure for an extra system to send emails and manage campaigns. Bit-Wizards used the existing Kentico platform by configuring the enterprise marketing functionality and analytics so that Wind Creek could collect and analyze more data from their marketing efforts. They were also able to build more effective personalized email content, thus allowing for an increase in email open and click through rates. The new system allows for the clearer separation of roles and work-types, thus, creating a more efficient work environment for the content management team. The Bit-Wizards Digital Marketing team did extensive training for entire email marketing department at Wind Creek to ensure they could effectively use, manage, analyze, and build new templates within the new system.
Bit-Wizards migrated all of Wind Creek’s data from the old system in Lyris, including contacts and email templates into the newly upgraded Kentico 9 website. The upgrade of their website was necessary so that Wind Creek could take advantage of the global unsubscribe functionality within Kentico version 9.
Bit-Wizards built custom integrations with Sendgrid that allowed WindCreek to get custom email bounce and spam information straight into Kentico for their email campaign analytics. Using the Sendgrid REST API, Bit-Wizards built custom code to extract email bounce information to connect the bounced email addresses to the Kentico contacts. This custom functionality was mirrored with the Spam email information as well.
The Bit-Wizards team also wrote custom code to integrate with Sendgrid again to allow for emails to be sent at a much faster speed within the Kentico queue instead of using the out-of-the-box SMTP email sending functionality.
Lastly, Bit-Wizards configured Kentico to allow the Wind Creek team to capture relevant contact data, review critical analytics, build marketing automation, and create list segmentation. Wind Creek also received extensive training to how to manage the new system and continue to gather useful and actionable data, on which to make marketing decisions.
