Cross Channel Marketing Plan
okdo.it is a bootstrapped productivity software start-up. It’s flagship application, okdo.it is essentially the marriage of email and task management and was created with the premise that email content can be succinctly categorized into three content types; notes, tasks, and attachments. We don’t believe separate applications across channel marketing channels needed to manage these three different types of content in an organized way. By using a twitter like syntax for content categorization (separation of tasks and notes), okdo.it allows people to send emails to each other (using any email client or service) fully organized with associated due dates and alerts so people can be more productive and accomplish anything.
Marketing will play a vital role in the success of Okdo.it. Okdo.it must build a brand around the software it offers by heavily promoting itself through cross channel marketing channels. Marketing efforts are just beginning by the time a potential customer enters Okdo.it for the first time. A strong emphasis will be put on keeping customers and building brand loyalty through programs focused on staffing, experience, and customer satisfaction.
Everyone complains about email. We’re awash in the stuff. We feel inundated. Overwhelmed. Out of control.
Lately there’s been quite a lot of talk about what to do about it. Jordan Crook hates it, MG Siegler tried to quit it, and Alan Henry argues you can’t. People want Gmail to speed up, Yahoo! to catch up, or, someone, anyone, to make something better. While everyone seems to agree that email is broken, no one seems sure how to fix it.
What makes email suck? It turns out the email “problem” is actually several issues smashed together into a ménage of anxiety and pain. As a former boss of mine used to say, “It’s a real poop sandwich” (only he didn’t use the word “poop”).

Technically speaking okdo.it is not email integration, it IS email but unfortunately (e)mail is already taken. 🙁 So vote on a nickname for okdo.it
(The letters of the alphabet were used to highlight the power of okdo.it)
Technically speaking okdo.it is not email integration, it IS email but unfortunately (e)mail is already taken.
We believe email should (d)o more than just send a message. Alot of the emails we receive everyday are about (d)oing something anyway. Shouldn’t our email (d)o something too?
We think task management software should (f)unction like things happen in real life. Goals and tasks are organic and can change, grow, or shrink in a moments notice. Rather than having to come to our website and log in, just fire off a (f)mail and change, add or subtract any goal or task in okdo.it and the program will automatically update …
