Agency Spotlight: bant.io

Founded in 2015, bant.io is a full-service, AI-powered sales and marketing automation solution, which aims to solve real-world problems for businesses through data-backed methodology, an omnichannel marketing offering and a full white glove, done-for-you approach. By marrying AI with high-quality customer service, the bant.io team has helped thousands of busy entrepreneurs and sales teams accelerate their growth.

Andrei has been the founder of several successful startups that aim to solve real-world business problems. He is intensely passionate about helping businesses succeed and providing high-quality, high-value solutions that are attainable to businesses of all sizes.

Why did you start bant.io?

I started bant.io out of a genuine desire to see businesses succeed. Business owners often get stuck or trapped by taking on marketing and outreach themselves, especially with traditional channels and, oftentimes, don’t see success because they aren’t working with the knowledge of thousands of data-backed experiments like we’re doing for them. 

We also aren’t structured like a traditional agency, meaning we are management-fee-free. Our goal is to provide attainable growth services to all businesses in the market and we do this through a unique combination of proprietary AI and sales and marketing experts. 

How would you describe the marketing automation landscape today?

It’s getting more diverse and more crowded every year, with new players popping up all the time. Marketing and sales seem to be in everyone’s “wheelhouse”, but only a select few have the data and science to back that up. That’s where bant.io has an advantage. We’ve done this for years, we’ve run the tests and measured the results, and continue to do so, and this helps our customers save time and money on untested strategies and companies. 

What’s your agency’s mission?

bant.io’s mission is to solve real-world problems through a combination of technology and support. AI is very much at the core of who we are and what we do, and without that technology and scientific approach, combined with our incredible Campaign Management team, we would just be another marketing agency. 

Instead, we strive to become an extension of our client’s sales and marketing teams, allowing them the freedom to experiment and try new channels while letting us focus on the “how” and “why”. 

Why do your clients love working with you?

Our motivation is to see our clients succeed, and our team takes a vested interest in the results of each and every single campaign. With dedicated customer support, we learn as much as we can about each of our clients so that we can provide the best recommendations and put together the most cohesive campaigns possible. To back up these claims, we don’t require any contracts from our customers, which holds us accountable for providing those results. 

Why do your employees love working for you?

We are a global company, spanning 9 countries and dozens of time zones, which makes us a truly diverse team in terms of experience and knowledge. We each have something unique to bring to the table, and something we can learn from each other. This diversity also naturally forces increased focus and collaboration, making it a positively productive environment. We also place a strong emphasis on work/life balance. We view each member of our team holistically and value who they are at home as much as we do at work.

What does it mean for bant.io to be a Citizen of Republix?

This is huge for us! Bringing bant.io into the mix with these other agencies will really give us the leverage to continue to grow, and continue to learn and provide even better features and services. The ability to share resources and pull from a pool of incredible knowledge is invaluable.

Why do you think the Republix model is right for today’s marketing industry? 

Currently, the marketing industry is very fragmented and vetting agencies can be a full-time job in and of itself. We speak with prospects and customers every day who spend much of their time managing multiple vendors or freelancers and struggle to coordinate efforts. On the flip side, we speak with a lot of people who have spent a lot of time and money trialling agencies and freelancers who cannot deliver. What is unique about Republix is that we are bringing together the best of the best, with proven, replicable and scalable results, and businesses can now give us their objective, and the rest of the magic happens on our end, while they reap the ROI.
