With the current state of the economy, people are going to be very diligent on where they are putting their marketing and advertising dollars, ensuring that each dollar is stretched as far as possible. Having this type of email intelligence at our fingertips is vital.
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) October 13, 2008
Alterian (LSE:ALN), the leading international integrated marketing platform provider, today announced that Newsmax Media, a print and online publisher providing the most up-to-the-minute political, health, financial and entertainment content to its more than two million email subscribers and four million monthly unique Website visitors, will use the Alterian Data Discovery and Visualization (DDV) tool to its highly successful Alterian Messenger Email Platform.
Newsmax currently uses Alterian Messenger as the cornerstone for its email direct marketing activities. Through its use of Messenger, Newsmax can determine click-through and open rates of the millions of email newsletters and news alerts it sends out and can thereby qualify results to current and potential advertising clients.
As consumers receive more targeted emails each day, and the publishing industry continues to shift towards pure digital content, Newsmax realized the need for a content delivery management tool. With Alterian Messenger in full steam, Newsmax will incorporate DDV to analyze each email campaign in more detail, enabling Newsmax to provide improved results to both advertising clients, as well as internal marketers. By targeting the right segments with the right message, ROI will be improved. DDV will allow Newsmax to deliver targeted content allowing subscribers to receive news and advertising better suited to their needs and interest, while at the same time, increasing advertisers' return on investment. The addition of DDV will move Newsmax from a volume-based email business to a quality based delivery model.
"Alterian DDV will enable Newsmax to provide its advertisers better information on who is reading and responding to the offers that are included in Newsmax content, allowing them to get the most return on their investment and make adjustments as they see what is or is not working," said Robert Vanselow, Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Newsmax. "With the current state of the economy, people are going to be very diligent on where they are putting their marketing and advertising dollars, ensuring that each dollar is stretched as far as possible. Having this type of email intelligence at our fingertips is vital."
"We are excited to see that Newsmax, a long time customer and leader in the publishing industry, is able to continue to integrate Alterian's growing platform to attract and grow its advertising base," said David Eldridge, CEO Alterian. "DDV is the heart of the Alterian offering --- the analytic engine that enables marketers to generate actionable insights from their data."
