“We constantly strive to provide our merchant partners with tools, technology, and features that make their lives easier, so they can focus on increasing their revenue and connecting with their customers,” said Brandon Cross, Founder and CEO of CommentSold. “We are very pleased to be able to integrate Vizzlie into our business to help our retail partners automate and simplify their marketing efforts. The tool saves valuable time for our CommentSold merchants by allowing them to customize and schedule push notifications, email campaigns, Facebook posts, text messages and other communications.”
By adding Vizzlie, the customization and scheduling tool for marketing and messaging, to the CommentSold platform’s personalization and scheduling of posts on Facebook and Instagram it will become a simpler process for merchants so businesses can build deeper relationships with their customers. At CommentSold, the tool will alert consumers about upcoming direct selling sessions, new product arrivals, promotions, and more.
Additionally, Vizzlie’s template system will allow merchants to quickly make text replacements for individual posts and follow up with customers via personalized emails or text messages with the option to schedule ahead of time. Merchants will also be able to use the tool to collaborate and share graphics or templates with other members of their internal teams all on the CommentSold platform.
