e-Dialog and Coremetrics Partner to Optimize E-mail Marketing Programs
Integration of Web Data Creates Highly Targeted, Behavior-based Retention Campaigns

SAN MATEO, Calif., and LEXINGTON, Mass., October 4, 2005 – e-Dialog, the proven provider of advanced e-mail marketing solutions, and Coremetrics, the leading provider of hosted Web analytics solutions, today announced a partnership to integrate Coremetrics’ LIVE (Lifetime Individual Visitor Experience) Profiles with e-Dialog’s e-mail marketing solutions. The joint solution enables clients to use integrated behavioral and transactional data to further enhance the targeting and dynamic content of highly sophisticated e-mail campaigns that can drive significant increases in revenue.

Integration with Coremetrics Web analytics data empowers marketers to attain a multi-channel view of online customers based on clickstream activity, such as browsing, abandonment, conversion and purchase RFM (Recency, Frequency, Monetary) variables. With this data, companies can pursue visitors and customers that have exhibited specific behaviors and preferences with well-timed, relevant content or special promotions known to spur conversion rates. According to a report by industry analyst firm JupiterResearch, the use of Web analytics to target e-mail campaigns improves revenue by nine times more than the use of broadcast mailings .

“Deep insight into customers’ preferences and inclination to buy is absolutely essential to get e-mail marketers to the next level of sophistication,” said John Rizzi, chief executive officer for e-Dialog. “We have already integrated with Coremetrics data on behalf of some of our clients, such as TJX, and they are very enthusiastic about the results.”

Through a seamless transfer of data between Coremetrics LIVEmail and e-Dialog’s data segmentation, analysis and audience building tool Insight Builder, marketers can quickly perform advanced queries and create audiences through an intuitive Web-based, drag and drop interface. The result is intelligent e-marketing campaigns that achieve higher conversion rates.

“As marketers increasingly seek ways to improve e-mail campaign results, they require solutions that will substantially improve relevance,” said Joe Davis, president and CEO of Coremetrics. “We are pleased to work with a proven e-mail marketing service provider like e-Dialog to offer clients the ability to execute targeted, measurable e-mail campaigns that influence prospect behavior and deepen customer relationships.”
