Email marketing is a cornerstone for many businesses, and YEAH! Local was no exception. There was only one problem, however: YEAH! Local was struggling with overly complex email marketing systems, and far too many of their emails were getting flagged as spam or ending up listed as “promotional” email and therein not getting read.
Enter Agile CRM. YEAH! Local switched to Agile CRM not only to improve its email marketing operation, but also to cut down on its investment in other marketing tools.
“Agile CRM has everything you could possibly need,” noted Justin Herring, CEO of YEAH! Local.

As a lead-generation and SEO agency, YEAH! Local needed to send emails on regular intervals and have healthy web engagement. The company wanted to automate emails while tracking them on daily basis. For this purpose, they had invested in more than 10 tools for marketing automation. However, these platforms were not good enough, and the emails were ending up either in spam or promotional folder.
To add to this, it was getting difficult for YEAH! Local to invest so many various platforms as a startup. They had tools that were not optimizing their marketing campaigns and instead were hurting them, and the ROI on these platforms was not strong.
How Agile CRM Helped
YEAH! Local wanted to find a CRM that did everything they needed at a price a small business could afford. The company was looking for a platform that would offer them powerful marketing automation features and a competent CRM that could take care of contact and task management.
They looked at several solutions, including Hubspot, but Agile CRM not only had more features, it also offered them at a better price point.
“Agile CRM gives Hubspot-like software with lot more features at far lower cost,” explained Herring.”

Agile’s email automation features allowed the company to send triggered emails based on lead’s actions or activities, add exit-intent pop-ups and engaging forms and pop-ups to capture lead’s information, tracking lead’s web behavior, and create landing pages.
Agile CRM allowed YEAH! Local to automate many tasks with only a few minutes of work, too, far less than the couple hours it took with their many other tools they had been using for a cobbled together setup. Using Agile CRM, the company could easily track emails, automate areas of marketing and sales, track web pages, manage regular daily tasks and deal pipeline, and more such.
