In 2022, IR Magazine noted how important personalized communication will be for improving investor engagement in 2023, and the stakes have never been higher to integrate these practices into one’s IR program.
Even though mass personalization communication tools are continuing to grow in importance and have been widely utilized by marketers for years, IR has yet to fully benefit. Despite the expectations called out in IR Magazine, most IR teams remain constrained by the complexity of mass email personalization tools on the market (that were not built for them) or the clunky and manual effort required to integrate their use.
But what if you could ensure that every communication sent to your capital markets contacts is personalized? And what if you could track all outbound correspondences in one place?
How might your ability to bring on new investors or grow the positions of current investors (your buyers) be impacted? Q4 believes this is a massive opportunity for IR.
