Publishers around the world are responding to the dramatic change in the way subscribers want their information. Over the past decade, IBD has shifted its focus from its roots in traditional publishing to electronic media, in addition to shifting the method it uses to deliver marketing messages to existing customers. The change in business model has generated a need for marketing strategically designed and targeted directly to qualified prospects. The industry's marketers must ensure that they reach the right targets with the right message at the right time in order to generate a positive return on marketing investment. Aprimo Marketing's EMM platform allows companies to execute marketing campaigns to strengthen acquisition, growth and retention strategies to maximize the lifetime value of the customer.
"We wanted a solution that we could depend on," said IBD EVP Karen Anderson. "Our choice was based on Aprimo's proven success in both executing and managing marketing campaigns in a wide variety of industries. We feel that Aprimo is a good partner and will allow us to strategically grow our business."
IBD, serving over 800,000 investors worldwide, will use Aprimo's campaign management software to target and manage its customer database. The centralized database will integrate with current IBD and third party data sources to support full functionality. Aprimo Marketing will also be used at IBD to provide improved tracking and management of department processes and resources.
"Aprimo is proud to be an essential business application in managing the needs of one of the world's most influential business publications," said Bill Godfrey, chairman and CEO of Aprimo. "We are certain that Aprimo will help IBD become more profitable through effective marketing and ultimately reach more people through increased readership."
