A post breaking down my frustration using popular un-sent notifications, as well as a really bad customer service experience with Event Reminder. My favorite styling strength when email marketing is image placement. I often use an image that says something about the campaign. When people open up an email, I make sure the first thing they see is a cue to the content that’s coming. In this case, it makes everything pretty clear: Granny Smith apples for breakfast!
Overall it was a great experience and I’m thrilled with the results. I can highly recommend Event Reminder for anyone looking to add email
As mentioned before, event notifications are not going out. Event managers post about this in a number of places, including their own forum. A lot of the people who subscribe to these events find that they rarely get notification even when they stick around constantly visiting the site and checking what’s going on. This is because the event manager is mostly getting notifications from people that they trust, thus there’s a lag in getting those announcements to you.
This problem is amplified because all of those forum users (more than apparently) send out their events through email. If this wasn’t already frustrating enough for the small minority of users who have come to be accustomed to receiving urgent news by e-mail, this has led to more and more stories like: “Yeah, I walked into my office around lunch
Part 2: Find the Issue
In part one, Ken tried to set up event reminders. The seemed to send but only notifications for show times and remained unfilled out. Now, he has found the issue. Event Reminders are not having any impact on events because the app hasn’t yet synced with his Google Calendar or Outlook calendar. Ken’s solution was to sync his Teams with Google Calendar and then add the event reminders from Appear. He has been able to add six reminders so far and two events so far. This is one of those upgrades that seems relatively simple, but took quite a bit of work to get this far!
* Part 3: Create New Events in iCalendar Format! When Ken created his events for Google Calendar with our interface, he could also go into the iCalendar formatted file
Part 3: Resolving the Issue
In the final blog of this 5 Part Series, I introduce my first set up for this post. The first part of that set up is to let people know I will be doing the blog, then send out a notification to the followers that they can expect it. Here is the notification I use with the look of a real account sending the email sign up request.
3. Set up your custom posts for your landing page(s). In this scenario we are going to build out a nice looking new social media landing page, pre-populate with some type of coupon code, and lead capture form as well. I’m here to tell you if doing this as a separate site is worthwhile at all. I think Facebook has very specific guidelines that you need to adhere to when doing custom posts as a separate site. They are different than non-Facebook business pages, and I don’t see the reason in creating two different landing pages just to use them as leads capture forms. By that same token this scenario allows you to use the organic Facebook specific call form which provides more messaging options. Many of the questions will apply to all the social media sites, but these lead capture fields provide something a lot of people want.4. Not
Part 4: Taking Action
When I set up event reminders, I knew that it’s important for the reminder to go through. Sure enough, the notifications didn’t come through at all and I reached out to Event Reminders to fix the issue. The person from Event Reminder told me that they were down and would get back to me in 24 hours. That day came and went and still no notifications for my event reminders so once again, I contacted AI about support. The woman who I spoke to this time was much more helpful and promised to help me out in 24 hours. 3 days later and a quick call, notifications have been sent through for all of my event reminders including my ticket request from the day before! Talk about productivity boost after messaging/calling them back so fast.
Both of these incidents happened at different times over last week but maybe AI works better when they’re not stressed. Regardless, their support team is responsive and that’s rarely found amongst
