Princeton, NJ (PRWEB) March 21, 2013
ALC announced that it has forged an expanded relationship with Experian Marketing Services in an initiative to serve as the premier solution provider in reaching the new parents market. Capitalizing on Experian’s superior data compilation and aggregation techniques with ALC’s innovative approach to data marketing, they have created and launched ALC Newborn Network, powered by Experian Marketing Services.
“Experian is committed to helping our clients reach new parents with relevant offers and communications through traditional and digital channels. Our collaboration with ALC will help us accomplish this,” said Kevin Dean, vice president of Product Management and Data Services for Experian Marketing Services. “ALC is widely recognized as an industry leader with a solid foundation in service and innovation. They have a strong presence in and knowledge of the new parents market, having worked for some of the most well-known brands in that space for many years.”
Newborn Network is the industry-leading database of new and expecting moms. Experian Marketing Services began developing this comprehensive resource in 1985, utilizing a multitude of unique, high-quality sources and a rigorous vetting process to ensure accuracy. Now totaling over 3.2 million records annually, the file reflects over 80 percent of all U.S. births. Mothers in the Newborn Network span from seven-month prenatal to 12-month postnatal in new and growing family households.
Financial services and insurance products rise to high priorities with parenthood, which also triggers a wave of spending like no other stage in life. Baby products, cars, clothing, real estate, photography, technology, consumer packaged goods, healthcare products, home furnishings and remodeling all spike in spending before and after having a baby. ALC Newborn Network offers targeted segments that help improve results for each sector of the new parent market.
“We’re proud to partner with Experian Marketing Services to bring Newborn Network to market,” said Fran Green, President, ALC 3D Data Solutions. “Our unique ability to connect new and soon-to-be moms and dads with the most relevant and meaningful content from the most appropriate brands is a powerful tool in deepening customer loyalty and advocacy while also giving consumers more of what they want.”
The Newborn Network combines more than 50 principal public and proprietary data contributors, including:
Baby Furniture and Maternity Store Purchases
Consumer Packaged Goods Manufacturers such as Diapers and Formula
New Baby Magazine Subscribers
New Baby Catalog Product Buyers
Photography Companies of Newborns and Babies
Each source is tested for accuracy, deliverability, and timeliness. Robust quality control measures are the cornerstone in maintaining the efficacy of the Newborn Network. According to Ms. Green, no other lifecycle list offers the accuracy, cost efficiency, or selectivity of Newborn Network.
