We're now living in what I refer to as the 'Short Burst Society' in which consumers are time-starved with a shrinking attention span
Chicago, IL (Vocus) October 26, 2010
Alterian (LSE: ALN), the leader in customer engagement technology and solutions, today announced the launch of its customer engagement eBook series, Creating Engaging Email. The series, which is comprised of five eBooks designed to enhance email marketing initiatives, will be released over the coming months, beginning with the first e-book: “Driving Subscriber Acquisition.”
The series is written by email marketing expert David Daniels, CEO of The Relevancy Group and former Vice President and Principal Analyst with Forrester Research and JupiterResearch. Alterian’s Creating Engaging Email eBook series will leverage The Relevancy Group’s Connected Marketing Framework to provide proven tactics on how to find meaningful ways to engage with customers and drive customer acquisition through effective email campaigns.
“We’re now living in what I refer to as the ‘Short Burst Society’ in which consumers are time-starved with a shrinking attention span,” said Daniels. “Even when pushing relevant messages, marketers still have a shorter opportunity to capture the consumer’s attention and drive corporate value. Alterian’s mission aligns perfectly to address this, and together, I hope to provide useful insight on how marketers can more effectively engage consumers on an individual level.”
Aligned with Alterian’s approach to customer engagement, The Relevancy Group’s Connected Marketing Framework integrates marketing initiatives across channels in a manner that leverages customer, subscriber or prospect data to drive greater campaign effectiveness. This framework is the basis for Alterian’s eBook series, which addresses a range of email campaign issues — from acquiring subscribers and measuring email performance, to using segmentation and web analytics to craft relevant and targeted messaging.
“We are thrilled to combine David Daniels’ expertise with the Alterian customer engagement methodology to provide this useful tool for marketers,” said David Eldridge, CEO of Alterian. “This eBook series will give marketers proven tactics and examples for creating intelligent, engaging email campaigns that generate value to their business.”
The first eBook in Alterian’s Creating Engaging Email series, “Driving Subscriber Acquisition,” exposes marketers to cutting-edge strategies for how to connect web analytics intelligence with social media and mobile marketing opportunities. This eBook is currently available for download http://www.email.alterian.com/DanielsEbooks.
The next four books in the series include “Segmentation and Targeting,” “Measuring Email Performance,” “Leveraging Web Analytics,” and “Harnessing Social and Mobile Marketing.”
