“Artificial intelligence will reach human levels by around 2029. Follow that out further to, say, 2045, we will have multiplied the intelligence, the human biological machine intelligence of our civilization a billion-fold.” ~Ray Kurzweil Sales robots can help you take your personalization experience to a whole new level. Where salespeople are limited by their time, numbers, and tools to create personalized outreach experiences and brands are limited in their non-personal branded approach towards marketing, sales robots can personalize email outreach experiences at scale. Sales Innovator incorporated the most effective personalization strategies into each sales robot's outreach techniques making each robot significantly more effective than an individual salesperson. With the sales techniques, Sales Innovator robots apply, marketers have noticed a 760% boost in their revenue and a 25% boost in open rates. This article will go into detail about the types of personalization techniques used by sales robots.
Personalize the Sender's Name
One of the most significant advantages of using sales robots is your personalized sender's name. Over 68% of Americans say that the "From" name plays a substantial role in their decision to open an email. 42% say it is the most significant factor next to a subject line (32%) and email preview (24%). When it comes to mobile, 70% of email recipients agree the sender's name is the most important factor they consider when opening an email. Hub spot tested using a sender's name instead of their brand, and they found that their click-through-rates went from .73% to .96%. This may not seem like a big jump, but the change resulted in 292 more clicks, which was worth it. When prospects take less than a second to decide on opening an email, it is critical to consider what the prospect finds the most crucial factor in making their first decision. Each sales robot has a personalized senders name that improves trustworthiness with the receiver, and over several email sequences, the sales robot will be remembered and expected. Additionally, you can add the brand name following the robot's name and add additional credibility to your email. Unlike an email from the company or an individual salesperson, sales robots can infinitely scale in providing a personalized sender's name to emails sent by a company. When contacts are ready to engage, a sales robot can transition the warmed-up relationship to a salesperson.
