Alterian (LSE:ALN), a leading international integrated marketing platform provider, today announced that it would be hosting a Webinar entitled 'Tactics to Optimize Enterprise Email Marketing Webinar Imperative.' The Webinar, hosted by David Daniels, Vice President and Research Director, JupiterResearch and the chief author of the JupiterResearch "E-mail Marketing Buyer's Guide, 2008: E-mail Service Provider (ESP) Evaluation", will discuss JupiterResearch's latest research on tactics to optimize enterprise email marketing deployments in a multi-channel environment.

- How to create a vendor selection strategy
- The benefits of collaboration between business units
The difference between on-premise and hosted solutions
JupiterResearch consistently finds the deliverability woes of marketers can be traced back to their own poor list-hygiene practices. Although deliverability tools and services can assist in remedying these issues, marketers must not put too much emphasis on silver-bullet promises. Instead, they should insist on necessary infrastructure improvements (e.g., authentication), and focus on tactics to improve list quality and reduce churn. (JupiterResearch, The Banality of Churn: E-mail Reactivation Tactics for Acquisition Success, E-mail Marketing, November 19, 2007.)
Separate research conducted by Alterian measured the level of sophistication of over 700 marketers, agencies and marketing services providers' email strategies and activities, including an in-depth look at how marketers personalize, automate, segment, track and report on email campaigns, and assigned marketers to one of five levels. Out of over 700 respondents, only five percent qualified as an Expert User - those most likely to be generating results that are significant and easily quantifiable. None achieved the level of Pacesetter - those pushing email marketing to new realms of effectiveness and relevance. These results demonstrate that many marketers have an opportunity to greatly improve the returns of their email marketing investment.
"Email marketing point solutions have become a risky bet for mid to large size email marketers," said Jason McNamara, Alterian CMO.
