  • ability to track the responder’s behavior not only to the landing page of a … but also from there through the Web site to ultimate sale, hesitation, or outright cart abandonment. This tracking is critical to testing modifications in the construction and targeting of the email that might improve results.” - IDC Worldwide Web Analytics Software Applications 2006 - 2010 Forecast and Analysis: 2005 Shares and Current Out look in the Year of IntegrationJune, 2006But that is exactly what we enable ourselves to do when we integrate email and analytics in the online worldSegments: Thick Slices = High ImpactFrom the information we gain - as we learn about groups within our visitor segments - we can refine and tailor the conversation with “thinner” custom slices of our population. Omniture’s Data Warehouse give you the option of any number of segment definitions for a more custom segmentation and thinner slices.Integrating email and web analytics behavior data lets you listen to what your customer is telling you through their website behavior, interact with them in a dialog of additional offers, and refine your knowledge until ultimately you and the customer determine how you can best fulfill the customer’s needs. When you send a spray and pray email, you are putting earmuffs on your concierge.But when you complete an integration, you are taking off the earmuffs, and letting the conversation flow.

BB Transcript 2/14/2013:Now lets think about how this will change the way that you interact with your customers. We know that email is important to you and email is a primary way that you interact with customers, here we show you how you can make those emails hyper-personalized where every element of the email is so relevant and customized based on information about the individual, based on what they have done or based on lead scoring. Another way to think of this is as a use case….someone is on your website and they have signed up for Webinar A maybe a month ago and they watched that or downloaded something and the next time they get a message from you, you aren’t going to tell them about something they have already done, rather you are going to use their behaviors on your website to dynamically put new ads and offers in the content of an email that you are sending them. Again, hyper-personalized and relevant. ***********No single competitor can match these capabilites across the landscape
