Messaging v2

Message Campaign Analysis

The new Messaging 2 suite in Affino is not simply an incremental update, it is a complete re-imagining of how messaging should work for businesses online.

 

It has meant a fundamental re-think of how bulk and targeted messages work, and breakthrough improvements for notifications and auto-responders.

 

Sales and Marketing Automation

 

Messaging is at the heart of sales and marketing automation. Typically though it is necessary to integrate with many different systems to ...

2013TopEcommerceTrends480

Ecommerce is speeding up, and no one is safe if they’re not fully committed to meeting the evolving market head on. 2013 will see big winners and losers as more shopping goes digital.

Nothing comes close in importance to being able to tailor the buying experience for each and every one of the shoppers who comes to you, whether it’s online, on mobile devices, kiosks, in-store or via ...

Buying a Different Perspective

Procurement Leaders

I spent a year as a Buyer (procurement executive) back in my early twenties, and the experience shaped a lot of the decisions I’ve made since career-wise and as the chief architect of Affino. My twin goals of making it easier to get information out to companies, and making it easier to buy for the client were largely shaped by the pressure which came from having to buy 10,000s of different products during the course of the year.

 

It’s a great thing then that we’re ...

Flower Innovations

Another favourite Affino etailer is Flower Innovations. Their original, and direct approach to selling flowers works exceptionally well.

 

Great products, nicely presented, with a simple checkout which allows different types of messages to be sent along with the flowers.

 

We had to evolve Affino’s checkout quite a bit to deliver for Flower Innovations, since almost every purchase made is for someone else. Everything else just works nicely. It’s another Hex Digital ...

BASD Purchase

I just had a great experience with Bathrooms and Showers Direct (BASD), one of the best Affino ecommerce sites out there. Although there are many great Affino sites, it’s not every day that I have cause to use them. In this case, one of the bath taps in my new place disintegrated when I turned it earlier this week.

 

We did the usual searches in the usual places: Amazon and John Lewis. Amazon’s search is just terrible for things like bath taps, millions of results but no easy...
