A Hot Banana Active Marketing powered Web site becomes an e-marketing platform for creating Web site content, lead generation campaigns, acquiring and capturing sales leads, improving conversions and building customer retention.
ÂClients are asking us for more pro-active Internet marketing capabilities to be optimized, launched and managed directly from their Hot Banana Web Content Management Suite,Â says Krista Lariviere, President, Hot Banana Software Inc. ÂWith our new Hot Banana Active Marketing Web Content Management Suite, weÂre seeing the logical convergence of traditional content management, Internet marketing, SEO and Web Analytics, all into one e-marketing platform. Active MarketingÂ is a solution we have developed for marketing professionals who can use the Hot Banana Web CMS to manage their tight budgets with limited resources, and yet still create fast-to-market lead generation campaigns with an optimized conversion funnel, while still ensuring the consistency of content and brand integrity.Â

ÂAs measurement and ROI remains the missing ingredient in marketing.
