How can you use automations?

Using automations can seem impersonal, difficult and almost harsh. In fact, it's the opposite. With automations, you can build really strong relationships with your guests, save tons of time and increase your sales by up to 14.5 percent (Nucleus Research, 2020).

Within the event and experience industry, there are many exciting opportunities when it comes to automations. Here you can let your creativity flow – the only limit is your imagination! The period from when the customer has bought a ticket or made a reservation, to when the experience has taken place, means several opportunities to talk to your visitors. You can send tips on activities a few weeks before, tell them about different options that make the experience extra memorable, and provide the customers with important information before the visit. Or, why not send out a customer survey after the event?

Six reasons

Let automations become your new best friend


Automations + information = true! Send important information before the visit, event or hotel night so that the customer feels as prepared as possible. At the same time, you let the pressure on your customer service decrease.


Tell the visitor about various options – such as a massage, a signed fan shirt or bubbles on arrival – for extra luxury and a strengthened customer experience. In addition, your sales figures rise.

Customer satisfaction

If you provide the customer with important information and show availability, you give the customer the conditions to fully enjoy the visit. This in turn results in higher customer satisfaction and better service.

Relevant communication

With MarketHype, you can filter among your customers and create automations that are relevant to specific recipients. Maybe one automation should be sent to all your guests but the other should go to those who haven't bought any extras yet?

Cost effective

When the communication is relevant, the opportunities for additional sales are many and you save a lot of time, the marketing can only be cost-effective.

Channel simultaneous visibility

When creating and distributing your automations, be sure to plan for simultaneous channel visibility at the same time. You need to be present in several channels and tap the customer several times for the customer to continue being or becoming a customer.

"Automations are a win-win for both visitors and employees – they are easy for the guests to adopt and easy for the marketing department to manage."

Teresa Vikstedt

Digital Marketing Manager, Göteborgs Symfoniker


While the system works for you, you focus on other things

That's exactly how automations work. You set them up in connection with new concert productions, football seasons and theater productions, choose which target group will receive the mailings and then let the automations roll. You also don't have to bother with exports and imports of CSV lists – your custom filters for the automations are continuously updated before each sending. Both smart and foolproof!

Let the money roll in with automatic mailings

Does that sound a little too easy? Maybe, but that's the beauty once you've done the work and hit the start button. When the customer longs the most to sing along to the audience crowd or relax in a bathrobe at the spa, the automations make sure to put a little extra pressure on the visitor's expectations and options that will make the experience even more luxurious – with increased sales figures as a result. A win-win for sure!


Build a strong relationship with your audience

Setting up personal automations is easy. With merge tags in your mailings, such as the recipient's name, birthday and city are picked up, which attracts attention and strengthens the bond between you and your customer. That together with relevant content created for your specific target group can only be a success! And hey, the target groups and recipient lists are easily created in MarketHype – with just a few clicks. All integrated in the same platform.

Channel selection

Email or SMS? Choose both!

What do you want to say in your automated dispatches? What do you want to achieve and how important is what you want to say?

SMS is a fast channel where the opening rate is usually high among recipients. However, the message needs to be short and concise and sent at the right time. Email messages, on the other hand, can be designed in other, more creative ways – but are usually opened by slightly fewer people.

With MarketHype, you choose which channel you want to use for your dispatches. And of course you collect all automations in one and the same view. It doesn't get more clear than that!
