Turbocharge your e-mail campaign  Sep 11, 2007 1:31 AM By MCM staff

Online customers are constantly leaving behind clues about themselves. It’s up to marketers to put these clues together and use the information to better target customers and improve the effectiveness of e-mail campaigns. Behavioral data can help you do that.Behavioral data is usually a result of actions customers have taken–or not taken–when interacting with your brand through one of its channels. The challenge is turning that information into a true understanding of what your customers need and want. This allows you to send more timely and relevant messages to your existing database, as well as target prospects with the same characteristics.For this special report from Multichannel Merchant, we spoke with several experts to find out how to use behavioral data successfully. Perhaps the most compelling reason to embrace the concept: A study by JupiterResearch revealed that only 13% of marketers are using targeted e-mail campaigns based on a customer’s purchase history or click-stream activity.

Eight From Eight By Eight  Aug 04, 2007 12:28 AM By Richard H. Levey

(Direct Newsline) It’s unclear how many of Amy Africa’s eight recommendations for online marketing were actually absorbed by her audience at the Direct Marketing Association’s Fast Forward event. Africa started her session by expressing her disdain for the list industry, whose offline, paper-focused orientation she likened to an afghan blanket: “comfortable, colorful and out of date.”
