We scan the world of eCommerce every quarter looking for "curve kickers" - technologies and services that can boost existing eCommerce, mobile, and marketing efforts with very little implementation effort. Most of the time the things we find are pretty obscure - a new security standard, a new mobile layout, a new design - but have a huge impact.

Q2 13 was no different. We found a well-practiced but little known email security standard called DMARC that can boost CTR by 20% on existing campaigns by ensuring delivery is done right. We also found a mobile engagement engine that can ensure your downloads turn into engaged customers, and best of all, it runs itself requiring very little effort from marketers. Twitter Cards has proven to be a big hit for Twitter marketers, and email A/B testing is a quick and easy way to see if new content and features are resonating (much easier than web A/B testing). Lastly we spoke with a number of retailers doing geoconquesting - targeting competitive stores rather than their own with mobile ads, and they have found huge success.

This is the short version....

  • DMARC, which stands for "Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting & Conformance", is a technical specification created by a group of organizations that want to help reduce the potential for email-based abuse by solving a couple of long-standing operational, deployment, and reporting issues related to email authentication protocols.DMARC standardizes how email receivers perform email authentication using the well-known SPF and DKIM mechanisms. This means that senders will experience consistent authentication results for their messages at AOL, Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo! and any other email receiver implementing DMARC. We hope this will encourage senders to more broadly authenticate their outbound email which can make email a more reliable way to communicate.
  • Here’s an example of what you can do with a DMARC-enabled email infrastructure provider. This one is Message Bus.

  • Top Innovations for Q2’13 1. DMARC (email security) 2. Mobile Engagement Engines (mobile) 3. Twitter Cards (social) 4. Email A/B Testing (commerce) 5. Geoconquesting (mobile offers)

Twitter SMTP Defined First PC Em ail (Non Spam ) Text/SMS Tweets Facebook Push 2.8 million/second 88 trillion/year
  • …Pressuring Infrastructure Layer Email Targeting Email Delivery What ESP’s Address What Senders and ISP’s Do (ie, was your email “sent” or actually “delivered to user”?)
  • What is DMARC? • New e-mail security standard*, now used by 66% of ISP’s • Locks down IP’s (kills spoof/phishing), gives deliverability feedback • Domain-level security (ie, works with existing email systems) *Actually 10 yrs old, but now used by 66% of ISP’s, still pre-ratification of standard sender ISP’s
  • DMARC Visibility Global view across organizatio n Immediate boost in deliverability and CTR Identify and isolate reputation risk areas Real-time deliverabilit y feedback

  • #2 – Engagement Engines
  • Why Are These Services So Addictive?
  • Just think of the last app/service that surprised you with how much time it managed to get… …did it send you 10+ e-mails/week and you loved it even MORE? YES.
  • Engagement Engines • Builds usage profiles in real-time (“active”, “dormant”, e tc.) • Triggers campaigns as users change profiles to “shape behavior” • Engine = set it and forget it; runs itself
  • Each day, customer actions (or lack of) create movement between cohorts… Active Dorman t 2,104 users hit their 10th day of non-use. 390 users who were dormant used the app.
  • …triggering targeted campaigns Active Dorman t 2,104 users hit their 10th day of non-use. 390 users who were dormant used the app. Send “what your friends are doing” e- mail Send “check out these new features”
  • Example Engagement Engine - Kahuna Live Triggered Campaigns Analysis Projects How to Maximize Engagement Suggested Campaigns

  • #4 – A/B Test in eMail
  • A/B Test in Email • New site feature or layout? Test in email first! • Select sample group and control, send e- mail, measure • Time to A/B test – days, not weeks
  • #5 – Geoconquesting (Mobile Ads)
