What Does Twilio Do?

Twilio is a customer engagement platform that enables omnichannel marketing communication and powers lasting customer relationships. Twilio provides the tools marketers need to build scalable digital customer engagement solutions that drive growth. There are several different tools that are a part of the Twilio platform — marketers can use each of these tools to accomplish different kinds of customer engagement outcomes.

Twilio Segment

Twilio Segment is a customer data tool that Twilio customers can use to do more with their customers data. A common problem with the process of collecting and analyzing customer data for sales and marketing purposes is that data often comes in through a variety of different channels. This makes it difficult to efficiently analyze all the data as one and use it to produce holistic insights. Using Twilio segment, you can unify your organization's sources of customer data so you can access more reliable and efficient insights. Twilio Segment can help improve customer data practices in with the following features:

Complete customer view - You can use Segment to bring together all your customers’ various touchpoints, making it easier to develop a single view of customer data from every channel.
Personalized experiences - Segment enables omnichannel customer engagement campaigns, which means your marketing team can communicate with customers from a central platform and reach them on whichever channel they prefer to use.
A single API - Segment marketers can use just one API to gather and analyze data from customers via any platform. You can create any integration you need with just a few lines of code and no extra infrastructure. 

Twilio Engage

Twilio Engage is a combination of Twilio’s customer engagement platform and Segment’s customer data platform. By uniting the features included in these two solutions, Twilio makes it possible for marketers to access a comprehensive customer engagement platform that enables better customer data analysis and better customer engagement campaigns all at once. Here are a few of the most substantial benefits of Twilio Engage:

Omnichannel customer experiences - Twilio engage makes it possible for marketers to organize customer engagement campaigns with omnichannel capabilities. You can deliver customer experience across multiple steps and channels and tailor them to customer behavior in real-time. Plus, every impact can be conveniently measured and analyzed from a single platform.
Personalized customer journeys - You can also use Twilio Engage to build personalized customer experiences that are informed by reliable customer data. With Engage, marketers can activate data from any and every customer touchpoint to fuel decisions based on real customer interactions. Best of all, Twilio Engage helps break down data silos, enabling marketers to base their customer engagement campaigns on a single source of dependable customer data.
Centralized customer data - Twilio Engage can also help you build centralized customer profiles based on the customer data your marketing team collects from any source. These profiles, which include information about customer preferences and behaviors, can help you identify how to improve engagement with each customer. Engage’s data collection tools prioritize customer privacy at all times. 

Twilio SendGrid

Twilio SendGrid is another of Twilio’s tools that is designed to improve organizations’ email marketing experiences. You can use the SendGrid Email API to confidently scale and optimize your Email marketing campaigns. SendGrid can help you improve Email engagement whether you’re running a small-scale email campaign with just a few hundred recipients or a massive email campaign with many thousands of recipients or more.

Twilio Messaging

Another Twilio product marketers can use to improve engagement is Twilio messaging. Using Twilio Messaging, you can send messages to customers via a wide variety of channels, such as SMS, Whatsapp, or MMS. This allows customers the flexibility to communicate using their preferred channel. Twilio SMS APIs provide a way for marketers to send messages cross-channel with only a few lines of code. Just like you can use an API to send messages to customers via Twilio SMS, you can also use Twilio Whatsapp APIs to integrate Whatsapp into your marketing campaigns.

Twilio Partner Showcase

The Twilio Partner Showcase is a tool Twilio customers can use to find Twilio partners who can provide various kinds of solutions. These solutions range from consultants who can help you deploy customer engagement solutions to software providers who can provide out-of-the-box solutions. 

There are several kinds of Twilio affiliates on the Twilio marketplace. For example, some of the organizations on the Twilio partners list are Consulting Partners that assist Twilio customers throughout the process of building and implementing Twilio customer engagement solutions. Other partners are Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), which provide ready-made software solutions for improving customer engagement. There are also Flex Integration Partners, which provide access to integrations for extending Twilio’s capabilities, and Add-ons, which are pre-integrated 3rd party technologies that make it possible for marketers to build richer communication experiences. 

There are also multiple support plans Twilio users can utilize to help drive customer engagement success. Twilio support plans come in a few different tiers ranging from the Developer tier (which is included free with all accounts) to the Personalized tier, which comes with additional channels of support and guaranteed response times based on ticket priority. There are also similarly-tiered Twilio Segment support plans that provide many kinds of assistance, such as incident support, help with new feature releases, technical troubleshooting, and more.

Twilio Professional Services is a separate plan that you can purchase in addition to any other support plan. Professional Services is intended to provide additional support that accelerates time to value with Twilio tools. Twilio Professional Services includes help with planning, implementation, onboarding, and optimization, as well as ongoing guidance from experts.

Twilio Partners

The Twilio ecosystem is made up of a varied range of partner organizations. Twilio partners come in many different varieties. For example, Twilio ISV partners are independent software providers who offer customer engagement software that’s ready to use right out of the box. In order to build on the Twilio platform, Independent Software Vendors should abide by some best practices. For example, Twilio uses usage-based pricing to charge ISVs, so it’s best for Twilio ISV partners to use a pricing model for their customers that’s compatible, such as a fixed usage model, a dynamic usage model, or a tiered model.

Twilio partners receive access to benefits according to a tiered system, ranging from Registered Partners to Twilio Gold Partners and Global Strategic Partners. In order to receive higher tiers of Twilio certification, partners must meet certain requirements. For example, in 2022, solver Consulting Partners must have ten Build certified resources and five sales certified resources. Gold partners must have fifteen Build certified resources and ten sales certified resources.

Twilio Professional Services

Twilio Professional Services is an additional support option marketers can purchase in addition to a regular Twilio support plan. The regular tiered system of Twilio support plans provides access to customer support resources with guaranteed response times for higher tiers. The Professional Services package is an ongoing support plan that allows you to work with Twilio experts to accelerate your time to value and maximize your success with Twilio’s customer engagement products. However, if you need technical resources and support, working with a Twilio Partner like Stitch may be a better solution for you.
