"It's critical for marketers to embrace social media and unify it with other tactics, namely their email campaigns," said David Kearney, email marketing expert and CEO of Boomerang.
Palo Alto, Calif. (PRWEB) December 8, 2009
(Boomerang.com) Noting that marketers must unify social media and emailing tactics to maximize the effectiveness of their campaigns, email marketing expert David Kearney directed email marketers to tools that integrate social media with email. Among the examples of such tools he cited were offerings from his own firm: Boomerang Hotlinks, a URL-shortening tool; and TwitterBlog, a means to automatically tweet blog entries. These and additional functionalities available from Boomerang make integration of social media with other marketing efforts easier.
"That social media tools are here to stay is a foregone conclusion," said Kearney, CEO of email marketing firm Boomerang. "They're fast becoming some of these most indispensable instruments in the marketer's toolbox. Social media and email are growing more and more interdependent, in fact. Email marketers who continually find ways to combine social media with email outreach will create campaigns that outpace their conventional counterparts."
A veteran of MIPS Computer Systems, Kearney has filled many roles in marketing and engineering for the high-tech industry. Before co-founding the award-winning email marketing firm Boomerang in 1991, he earned an MBA from Cornell University's S.C. Johnson Graduate School of Management. Kearney's articles on email marketing have appeared in business periodicals such as DM News, and publications such as AllBusiness have quoted him on his email marketing expertise.
Kearney encouraged marketers to take advantage of Boomerang's social media tools, which help them to unify their social media use with their email campaigns. For instance, Boomerang Hot Links shorten URLs quickly and easily for inclusion in updates for social media tools such as Twitter or Facebook. Furthermore, TwitterBlog, Boomerang's tool that enables anyone to automatically tweet blog posts, adds much-needed efficiency to the process of communicating word of blog posts to Twitter.
"It's critical for marketers to embrace social media and unify it with other tactics, namely their email campaigns," said Kearney. "One of the obstacles to this has been efficiency; it can become tedious tending to social media day in and day out. Tools that make this kind of effort is welcome, and Boomerang's do just that."
