Haulix Weekly Update #105: “And here I am using my own lungs like a sucker!”

Hello, everyone. Thank you for stopping by our blog. Whether it’s your first visit or your hundredth, we’re happy to have your attention. This is our weekly recap post, which runs every Friday, and in it we talk all things Haulix. Before we get there however, we like to share a song that has been on repeat in our offices this week. With the weekend only a few short hours away, this track will help you celebrate your impending freedom like no other. Enjoy:

As I mentioned above, each and every weekend we like to take a brief break from our regularly scheduled programming to update and reflect on everything happening at Haulix HQ. We are far more than a music blog, as many of you already know, and posts like this give us an opportunity to share more our efforts with all of you.

Development News:

We don’t have any new information to share on the development front. Our team is continuing to work on the next version of Haulix, and we hope to share the full relaunch with the public before the end of November. If you missed our tease of the updated email features from last month, here’s a quick refresher on what you can expect from our updated platform:

— Drag n Drop Editor for building custom Press Releases and Promo Invitations

— Choosing recipients will be much easier with a new way to include or exclude groups of contacts

— Save the email and finish later

— Save and re-use drafts like you do now

— The ability to send yourself and coworkers a test email before blasting to your contacts

— The ability to schedule campaigns to automatically send out on a future date and time


Things on the blog continue to progress with each passing week. This is always the case, I suppose, but in the past week it has especially been true as we have been attempting to plan the remainder of 2015. It’s true we are still nearly three months from welcoming 2016, but January will be here fast and we want to be prepared. If there is anything you would like to see us cover, shoot James an email at james@haulix.com
