Experian Marketing Services, a global marketing leader and provider of email marketing and customer intelligence technologies, today announced that for the fifth consecutive year its email marketing technology, Experian® CheetahMail®, is listed as the email service provider to more of Internet Retailer’s Top 500 retail websites than any other vendor in its category. Listed with 74 of the Top 500, Experian CheetahMail can be found alongside twice the number of retail clients than the next email service provider overall and seven times that amount for the uppermost 100.
The seventh issue of the industry-renowned Top 500 Guide is based on research compiled by Internet Retailer editors over six months of data collection and analysis. Reinforcing its leadership status, Experian Marketing Services also was named a leader in The Forrester Wave: Email Marketing Service Providers in December 2009, earning the highest score in market presence when compared with other vendors in its category.
With the increasing pressure for online retailers today to improve their return on marketing spend, it is imperative that every communication they send is meaningful, targeted and relevant. Working with an email service provider that is able to use data to anticipate customer and industry trends for precise campaign execution is key to achieving this goal cost-effectively.
“The advancement and prevalence of social networking websites, mobile technology and Internet-enabled devices have amplified the customer engagement and revenue generation opportunities for online retailers today. The enterprises listed in this year’s Top 500 Guide understand these trends and have been able to not only adapt to these changes, but also to build upon them in compelling and strategic ways. It is truly an honour to once again be listed as the email service provider of choice for these strong, customer-focused brands,” said Rachel Bergman, general manager and SVP, Experian CheetahMail.
