Kentico's Online Marketing edition comes complete with an email marketing application that comes complete with the ability to create emails and newsletters from customized templates or from pages on your site. The system also allows you to track key metrics in determining success of your campaigns.
Kentico EMS edition comes with built in A/B and Multivariate testing modules. This technology allows you test variations of your web pages and determine which variants are most effective. You can get very scientific in your approach to A/B testing and run a test to a certain percentage of your web traffic so you have more freedom to experiment without having to commit to any of the changes.
Campaign management within Kentico has out of the box functionality that allows you to run and analyze cross-channel digital marketing campaigns without the need for any third party modules. Campaigns are set up around conversion points and actions are weighted according to values you determine important. This allows you to gain insight into the effectiveness of your campaigns and make the appropriate adjustments to them to increase conversions.
The campaign management application is also equipped with all the analytics you could need to analyze data quickly. Having everything in one place is extremely convenient and having this built into the CMS makes making changes easy.
