“ Publicate is great for people who want to spend less time designing newsletters and more time on content. It allows you to easily set up your own branded template newsletter workflow ”

About the Company

Day Optimizer (DO) is a digital day planner that helps solopreneurs create daily plans that reflect their priorities. It does this using guided workflows designed around neuroscience principles. 

DO automatically imports your calendar appointments, allows you to mark tasks off, either as Done Today or Done Forever, and helps you schedule all other regular activities.

Once a plan is created, DO provides a real-time ETA for the end of your day that updates as you check commitments off.

The Challenge

Designing newsletters can be a daunting task, as Day Optimizer experienced before Publicate. They were looking for a time-efficient, user-friendly solution that stays true to their brand and delivers results without wasting time.

1. Spending less time on newsletter creation

Tired of grappling with a cumbersome newsletter builder that ate away valuable time, Day Optimizer was in urgent need of a swift and efficient newsletter editor. They wanted a solution that would liberate precious hours so they could focus on driving company growth instead.

2. Branding consistency

Limited brand features and customisation options in the previous systems prevented their templates from fully reflecting their brand identity.

3. Design flexibility

The last system’s cookie-cutter templates stopped Day Optimizer from making more granular edits and were unable to craft the more personalised, creative templates they wanted.

The Solution

Publicate stood out as the time-saving solution that seamlessly integrates with their workflow, and ensures templates stay perfectly aligned with their brand while offering the content flexibility they needed..

1. A built-in content pipeline

‘Other tools don’t allow you to build a content workflow but Publicate does. ‘says Trevor, who uses the Publicate Chrome extension to save webpage links to his library when browsing the web. This way, all relevant content is queued up and ready to add to the next newsletter.

2. An email builder that saves time

Trevor can now create newsletters in around 15 minutes, a vast improvement from the 1.5-hour laborious process endured via previous platforms.

Automating newsletter styles with the Brand Kit, setting up a content workflow via the Publicate extension and re-using saved templates means barely any design work is needed after preparing the content. This completely streamlined Day Optimizer’s newsletter process.

3. On-brand aesthetic and engaging design

As well as automatically reflecting the brand's style, each piece of content features call-to-action buttons and social sharing options carefully selected by Day Optimizer to promote engagement.

Combined with Publicate’s powerful design flexibility, Trevor can achieve the polished, on-brand, and professional newsletters he wants.
“This is where Publicate shines: newsletter creation used to be a 1.5-hour tedious process, which is now dramatically faster. It’s a 15-20 min breathe-through process, packaged in a much cleaner branded design. “
