Silverpop's Loren McDonald provides highlights of the company's annual Email Marketing Benchmark Report.
Things are good at Silverpop, the email service provider. The Atlanta, Ga.-based provider had the best revenue growth year-over-year in the first quarter in six years. It was acquired by IBM last month. It's got 5,000 brands using it and 25,000 marketers. It's gotten some praise in the industry by analysts who say it gets marketing automation and its regarded among the visionaries for the concept of behavioral marketing.
Today's customer is growing accustomed to researching and purchasing across multiple channels, even for a single transaction. The best omnichannel marketers understand this, and it shows in their advertising, messaging, and customer interactions.
Despite rumors of the death of email, it remains a significantly more effective way to acquire customers than social media — nearly 40 times that of Facebook and Twitter combined, according to research from McKinsey & Co.
Although Silverpop was acquired by IBM in April, Kevin Bishop, VP and General Manager of Enterprise Marketing Management at IBM, said he does not expect any significant shifts in Silverpop’s overall business strategy. He made the remarks during Amplify 2014, Silverpop’s customer event.
To begin the B2B buying process, many prospects go to the web sites of potential vendors to get a feel for what each company can offer. Since the company web site is often the first touch point for potential customers, vendors must find ways to provide relevant content up front.
The content you need for your next campaign could be right under your nose. Your team can save time, effort and resources by repurposing your company's existing content to reap great results.

One way Merriam-Webster defines “abandon” is “to leave and never return to (something),” but many of today’s e-commerce firms don’t seem interested in embracing such a bleak definition. Instead, many are viewing so-called “browse abandoners” – those who have looked at items online but left a site before putting them in a cart – as opportunities. They’re betting that with a little friendly nudging, visitors can be persuaded to re-engage and take the next step in the buying process.

Are you able to measure your efforts so that you can adjust and improve over time, while also eliminating tactics and strategies that are not giving you the return that you need to have the highest levels of success? Are you able to explain to management how effective your budget investments have been in contributing to pipeline and revenue?
Email generated a lot of heat and light in 2013 for a channel that's supposedly on its way out.
Silverpop, a leading behavioral marketing automationtechnology provider, recently issued a whitepaper, “7 Key Marketing Trends for 2014 & Tactics for Thriving in the New Year.”
Last year, we declared 2013 the year of the customer, writes Loren McDonald, vice president of industry relations at Silverpop. Consider the customer revolution under way. With buyers privy to more information, access and choice than ever, lower prices and better products have become little more than minimum requirements. Given that landscape, how can businesses distinguish themselves from the pack?
According to a new whitepaper by Silverpop, the customer revolution is under way.
Google has gone nuclear on email marketers in 2013. In May, it shuffled promotional emails into a separate tab in Gmail inboxes. Now it has now taken away a key tracking mechanism marketers have traditionally leaned on.
MediaPost's Laurie Sullivan pulled some data-related prophecies to share with you, but here's my prediction first: Marketers will begin to use data to better understand the customer lifecycle.
Last week, Gmail announced some big changes regarding images in emails. Now, users will see all images displayed in their messages automatically across desktop, iOS and Android. Instead of serving images directly from their original external host servers, Gmail will now serve all images through Google’s own secure proxy servers.
This week Google has either gone Grinch on email marketers or given a nice holiday treat to email users -- both is true depending on who you ask.
Marketers will be faced with two choices as 2014 dawns: continue to run marketing for marketers and push out generic promotional messages, or run marketing for customers and deliver tailored content to them. That's the resounding theme of a series of predictions by the team at marketing software provider Silverpop. Seven trends they predict are:

While renovating your email program might seem daunting, it can yield high-impact results that are well worth the time and money spent. The best marketers know how important it is to consistently evaluate—and re-evaluate—email marketing programs. In some cases, even small tweaks to an email program or campaign can return notable outcomes.
How can marketers get consumers to love their brand? It’s a long and difficult process that requires a complex system of tools and tactics.
It's a wonder that marketers haven't universally lost their wits trying to understand the omnichannel consumer. Unlike customers' trek along the predictable path of yesterday's purchase funnel, today's customer journey looks more like the travels of a spirited bumble bee. This flurry of activity can make customers' motivations unclear—thus making the need for marketing technology crucial.
It is clear that marketers can no longer treat all prospects alike, as sending out the same email to everyone no matter who they are or where they are in the buying cycle is not likely to yield stellar results. While the ultimate goal is to make a sale, it is becoming more important to develop a rapport with buyers and understand what drives their purchasing decisions. That was the message of several speakers at the recent Digital Marketing University event in Philadelphia held by Silverpop.
Digital marketers are constantly pressured to justify their budget spending, and one of the simplest ways to help nail down solid return on investment numbers is to properly identify leads, a panel at the Lead Generation Summit 2013 said.

What movies and stars did best in the world of social media this summer?
It’s fitting that there’s a kind of social media silo that we create around ourselves that limits our perspective (mine is movies and equestrian artwork). After all, there’s no way we could take every bit of information in without going a little crazy. Fortunately, the fine folks at Silverpop have done it for us — creating an overview of how movies large and small utilized social media this summer.

Wimbledon, The Ashes and The Lions - institutional British sporting events, all running for well over a hundred years, and this year we've been lucky enough to have all three in one summer.

Changes to the social media standing of players and sponsors following sporting events offer marketers unique opportunities
Managing marketing data can seem like an overwhelming task. Mobile, tablets and social have all transformed the buyer landscape and the way marketers reach their customers and prospects. That said, sophisticated marketing technologies have made it easier for marketing departments of all sizes to augment their databases and “fast-path” their way to more comprehensive information on targets.
As product evangelist for email marketing service provider Silverpop, Ellen Valentine works with clients on implementing and maximizing marketing technology to drive campaign performance.
According to a Silverpop study by Forrester Consulting, marketers who have adopted behavioral marketing practices have realized business benefits ranging from higher return on marketing investment (ROMI) to higher contributions to sales pipelines and revenue.

Another 39% of marketers are in transition, and only 7% have no plans tp implement mutichannel strategies, according to a recent report by Forrester Consulting commissioned by Silverpop.
Vertical-based marketing offers a huge opportunity for growth, but it requires a deep understanding of a particular business segment that goes beyond simply adding a few “insider” phrases to generic content. With careful positioning around a benefit statement for a specific market or even accounts within a market, businesses can drive profitable long-term engagements within a vertical, experts told Demand Gen Report.
Bill Nussey, President-CEO, Silverpop is listed as one of BtoB Magazine's "Who's Who in B2B."
Most marketers are using marketing automation to scale and standardize marketing processes, but the few who use automation to focus on customer behavior on seeing benefits. That’s a key conclusion in a new report by Forrester Research.
The report, "Use Behavioral Marketing to Up the Ante in the Age of the Customer" [registration required], was commissioned by marketing automation provider Silverpop and involved in-depth surveys with 157 marketing professionals in the U.S.
A new commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Silverpop, a digital marketing technology provider, reveals that while marketers who leverage buyer insight in their campaigns experience significant business benefits above their peers, behavioral data still remains the greatest untapped marketing asset.

The days when consumers pore over supermarket circulars or free-standing newspaper inserts in search of super buys or cents-off coupons are fading.
According to new research by Silverpop, with Forrester Consulting, today’s buyers control the buying process far more than today’s vendors control the selling process, a phenomenon that affects both business-to-business and business-to-consumer marketers. Buyers seek the information they want online, on the Web and in social channels, as well as in the “real world.” Today’s buyers, though, expect sellers to know where they’ve been, what they’ve seen, what they’ve accepted or rejected, whether that behavior happened on their tablet, via their smartphone, or at the local branch office. Today’s marketers are struggling to keep up.
Laurie Hood, Vice President of Product Marketing for Silverpop discussed the increasing power of the modern consumer and how to best use technology to reach them.
Marketers firm Silverpop has launched its Universal Behaviors technology, a new customer insight platform giving marketers fuller overview of customer behaviour across any device or outlet.
Two years back, the idea that social media would hasten the death of email marketing was hotly debated in blogs and op-eds throughout the digital marketing community. And while I don’t see it often anymore, I will occasionally stumble upon a blog that states, “Yes, email marketing is very much alive and well.”
So you’ve started your own business.
You’ve moved boxes around to create some (tight) office space in the basement. Your personal cell phone is also your business phone. Your family can barely keep their eyebrows down with questions. Your friends at dinner not-so-secretly think you’ve lost it.
Who’s got your back?
Lucky for your business, and the hundreds of thousands of other similarly bold endeavors out there, the Internet has finally caught up to your entrepreneurial spirit. And now there are dozens of excellent tools on the web designed specifically to help small businesses grow.
Here are seven innovations for your small business:
Marketers, consider this your wake up call. Now, more than ever, buyers have more control over the sales cycle. Many prospects are anywhere from 54% to 80% of the way through the buying cycle (PDF) before they're even comfortable inviting a sales rep into their evaluation process.
Marketers must therefore evolve with the buying cycle and find some new ways to own the early part of the sales process. How? Well, by incorporating recipient behaviors into their marketing strategy.
Modern day marketers need to be aware that their brand messages are at risk of being swallowed up in the abyss that can be email marketing.
Modern day marketers need to be aware that their brand messages are at risk of being swallowed up in the abyss that can be email marketing. On average per person, per day consumers are receiving over 30,000 advertising messages, so it is essential that your business stands out from the crowd. Below are my essential, top ten email marketing tips:
According to Gartner, "by 2017, the CMO will spend more on IT than the CIO." Marketing's increasing reliance on IT combined with the shift to customer experience–centric marketing brings a set of core challenges—including getting a 360-degree view of cross-channel customer data to make the right decisions and accelerate business growth. However, for marketers to leverage data across channels, they need true data integration among customer-facing systems to equip the right stakeholder with the right customer data in real time.
When B2B marketers send out a typical paid tweet, they have to direct leads to a landing page with a form for their name, company, email and any other pertinent bits of data they want to capture. As any marketer knows, when prospects have to go to another site and fill out a form it increases the likelihood that they will just abandon the task.
It’s said that the average person is exposed to 30,000 marketing messages a day. To me that’s worrying news for us marketers – especially if it’s your job is to build marketing relationships with consumers.
TM Lewin has revealed that the average lifetime spend of its social media customers outstrips that of customers driven to its site via paid search.
Twitter began testing a lead generation tool Wednesday in its tweet stream that resembles a cross between a daily deal alert and call-to-action ad in search engine query result pages. It serves up in one of Twitter's Cards, the expandable display unit that allows brands to attach photos or other media.
Lead generation is becoming simpler in practical terms—it's easier than ever before to find and nurture prospective customers. But the forces driving it are complex, including the integration of marketing and sales tools and continued industry consolidation. -

The median open rate for emails in the United States last year, according to a study released this week by Silverpop, was 16.5%. If your open rates are cruising along at 20% or above, then, you might have a fairly high opinion of your email prowess. You would be mistaken. You are not even in the top 25% of email marketers.
Curious about the state of email marketing? Silverpop has released the findings of its 2013 Email Marketing Benchmarks Study, which showed that email is still an effective channel for delivering personalized, dynamic messages at the right time.

Spring is in the air and another Major League Baseball season is upon us.

It’s Opening Day for Major League Baseball. San Francisco is home to the defending World Series-champion San Francisco Giants. It’s also home to Twitter and, in baseball terms, Facebook. But the Giants place a mediocre fourth in the social media fandom, according to this infographic from Silverpop. But maybe that means the fans watch the games instead of their phones?

In the old days of email marketing, batch and blast was the most effective, not to mention the only, way to reach thousands of contacts at once. It was a reliable method, but it is no longer as practical or beneficial. Contacts are inundated constantly with messages and ads — whether it’s in their inboxes, on social channels or the web. Impersonal, irrelevant messages will receive a quick delete without a second thought.

Every year, the Grammy Awards show gathers all the usual suspects for a replay of the year’s favorite hits. Fortunately, outspoken celebrities in crazy outfits still manage to surprise us every time — sometimes with their songs, sometimes with their acceptance speeches. These two infographics show how the artists fared on social media sites before and after the show in 2013.
Social media has become an indispensable part of the music business. It used to be that winning a Grammy was one of the best way for a new artist to enter into the public imagination. Now, they enter through social media, and the Grammys naturally follow.
