While social media has become a popular channel for consumer marketing and sales, email remains a mainstay for B2B marketing. According to current data from HubSpot, 93% of B2B marketers utilize email campaigns with 81% indicating it is their most used form of content marketing. The same study reveals that businesses have seen a 78% increase in response rate to email marketing over the past 12 months and during the Covid 19 pandemic. Because of the continued effectiveness of B2B email marketing, Elastic Suite is making vital platform enhancements in support of client marketing campaigns and sales promotions. 

Campaigns are available right now for all Elastic Enterprise clients. Set up and integration takes about a week and campaigns are ready to be sent immediately! Pricing is tiered based on existing licensing agreements.  

The experience for the campaigns was based on the retailer quick-order (and re-order) user flow. Based on our 4-click order entry process, these email campaigns help brands deliver a customized product mix, in real time, for brands to purchase instantly.
