"We are pleased to provide marketers a way of measuring their brand equity across all email marketing channels which reflects how the typical consumer may perceive that brand in their inbox. Understanding how consumers see them as a whole -- through in house marketing, as well as 3rd party newsletter sponsorships and affiliate marketing efforts -- can help marketers improve their brand equity and their ROI. It has been shown that consumers respond more favorably to email marketing efforts based on positive past email experience.
