Hot Banana Software, Inc. (http://www.hotbanana.com), a leader in Web content management for marketing, today showcased its new integration between Hot Banana Version 5.5 and email marketing software application providers, such as EmailLabs. Hot Banana made the announcement at ad:tech San Francisco, here through April 26.
The email marketing integration enables marketers to design and create best practices HTML email content directly in the Hot Banana Web CMS, ensuring consistent cross-channel branding throughout the Web site, landing pages and email campaigns.
