Nova Scotia’s SimplyCast, a provider of multi-channel marketing Platform-as-a-Service solutions, has released Version 7.0 of its online marketing application, moving to the forefront of multi-channel marketing automation.
Version 7 is the world’s first automated application that allows customers to broadcast their message over as many as 13 channels (whether it’s email, fax, SMS, Twitter or others), all from a single solution. The convenience and efficiency of SimplyCast’s existing software has already won it thousands of customers in 175 countries. In releasing the most extensive software upgrade in its history, SimplyCast now offers both beginners and experienced marketers more tools on a single platform and greater pricing flexibility than any other automated marketing service.
“Marketing automation is changing rapidly and with the launch of SimplyCast Version 7.0, businesses can finally have every tool they need in one user account,” said Saeed El-Darahali, president and CEO of SimplyCast. “By enhancing and adding key features to every part of the application, clients can now use the power of 13 different marketing channels using one user subscription.”
The numerous upgrades include SimplyCast’s new Epic Free 5,000 credits plan. This feature allows every registered user to send up to 5,000 emails, 50 faxes, 5 SMS messages and use a Twitter automation tool and signup form creation tool free each month. It was created not only to introduce automated marketing to small companies looking to get noticed, but also to help struggling businesses hit by the global downturn. The Epic Free plan is also ideal for non-profit organizations as they can spread their message via multiple forms of communication at no cost.
The other upgrades featured in Version 7.0 include a press release submission tool, A/B split testing, the option to create custom packages, and a social media bar to easily share campaigns. When users need to upgrade their plan, they have the choice to select the extras they want to pay for. There is also a managed service option that provides a hands free approach to marketing, where everything is done on behalf of the client by the SimplyCast team for $99/month.
The tablet-ready application also includes feature upgrades to the Twitter marketing service to improve follower growth, the option to sign into a user account through Twitter or Facebook and integration with PayPal for International clients.
