2. Take charge of your email campaigns

Also, HQi’s email campaign function has a subscriber activity stream that enables you to see responses from specific subscribers. It allows you to track when you’ve sent an email to a subscriber and if the person opened your email, clicked on a link, or unsubscribed from your mailing list. You’ll catch delivery failures as well, indicating invalid email addresses, bouncebacks or spam reports.

Subscriber activities
HQi lets you track subscriber activity to see how they engage with your emails.

Moreover, additional tools have been brought into HQi for you to effortlessly manage subscribers from one location. For instance, you can modify details of a single subscriber, such as move him/her to a different group or deactivate his/her subscription. Or you can update a group of subscribers in one go through a spreadsheet or manual selection. This means you can upload many subscribers, suspend sending emails, unsubscribe many subscribers in a bulk action, among other capabilities.

3. Secure login with a two-way authentication

For extra security, HQi now provides an option for two-way authentication to login. This feature needs to be setup in “Settings” under “Preferences.” Once activated, a verification code will be asked when a user signs in. The user will need to input the code sent to his/her email address to get into the platform.

6. Customise internal pages as you like them 

No longer just the homepage, now you can personalise any design page within your website, like your investor welcome or AGM page. Ask us to arrange this for you initially, so you can be free to change images or content on the page whenever you need to. Gone are the days when you'd wait for web developers to set it up - though we'd be happy to assist you anytime.

7. Plus, more advanced capabilities in HQi 

  • A Redirection module has been installed for changes in your URL when you rename a page or reupload a PDF. This ensures your links won't get broken and helps with user experience as well as SEO.
  • An extra layer of security for sending emails is now in place to guard against email bots that automatically do checks. This means when you approve an email, you'll be directed to a confirmation page before it is released.
  • An automatic image thumbnail generator has been put up for third-party news on your list pages, such as your Media Centre. This facility duplicates the featured image of the article and displays it on your list page when you add the link in the external link input field of the news item.
