Using Knotice's Concentri® EmailPlus and Concentri® SiteTarget Together Shows Promise For Retailers

AKRON, Ohio, June 22 /PRNewswire/ -- The rampant solution specialization within the direct digital marketing industry has challenged many retailers of all sizes. The natural evolution of the software market has forced retail marketers to find one partner for email marketing, and a different one for targeting Web site content to visitors.

Some savvy retail marketers, however, are beginning to usher in a new era with a more connected approach to direct digital marketing – the addressable form of digital marketing through the email, mobile, and Web channels.

Ana Sanchez, co-owner of the portrait personalization Web site AllPopArt.com, selected Knotice, a direct digital marketing solutions company out of Akron, Ohio, to improve the two-way connection between the email and Web site channels and maintain a greater focus on her customers. According to Sanchez, Knotice is ideal because its software offers both top-tier email marketing, with Concentri EmailPlus, and specializes in improving targeted Web site content with Concentri SiteTarget.

For Sanchez, the value is simple.

"Most retailers use Web site traffic data to trigger email marketing programs," Sanchez said. "Knotice is able to take it to the next level by using email activity data to trigger Web site content. They can change up the entire site experience or just place more relevant content on my landing pages based on the email behavior they capture for me in their database."

Knotice's ability to better connect the email and Web site channels is also appealing to another new Knotice customer, Kevin Stecko, owner of the popular online t-shirt retailer 80sTees.com. While Stecko has initially selected Knotice for email services because of the company's industry-leading deliverability, he also sees the value in adding targeted Web site content in the near future.

"Knotice's ability to create a stronger connection between the email and Web site channels is a major win for us," Stecko said. "But even more than that, the ability to engage one company for multiple programs over multiple channels is a significant gain in efficiency."

According to Knotice co-founder and CEO Brian Deagan, Knotice is able execute sophisticated multi-channel direct digital marketing programs because of a centralized data environment called a Universal Profile Management System, a native component of the company's on-demand software.

"Universal profile management is the key driver for all direct digital marketing success," Deagan said. "The power of centralizing all marketing data in the same software platform that executes email and targeted Web site content cuts production cycles from weeks to days and can reduce other marketing costs by as much as 50 percent."
