Eversave‘ Opens an Umbrella Company for a Family of Products and New Direct Marketing Endeavors
Woburn, Mass., March 5, 2003 – Prospectiv Direct, Inc., a company that connects brands and buyers, launched today as the newly formed parent company of the online marketing pioneer Eversave. Prospectiv Direct will also be the umbrella to a network of private-label partner sites, as well as other business units currently being developed. The company will continue to deliver geographically targeted e-mail promotions, under the Eversave brand, to the specific interests of consumers and on behalf of merchants nationwide.
Prospectiv Direct has been formed to better leverage the company’s assets: direct marketing expertise, a database rich in detailed customer profiles, and a business model that has produced profitable results since the 4th quarter of 2001, despite the worst advertising economy in years.
The new company will build on the core, opt-in databases developed and maintained originally by Eversave to better meet the needs of the hundreds of name-brand clients and advertising agencies served by Eversave since its inception in 1999. New products and services will be developed to help consumer-focused companies acquire and retain customers by leveraging online assets.
"This last year has seen our successful expansion into the Pharmaceutical, Travel & Leisure, Entertainment, and Financial Services markets, as well as the launch of two popular new services," said Jere Doyle, president and CEO of Prospectiv Direct. "Our new corporate structure will help us to continue to grow and market new, breakthrough technologies."
Prospectiv Direct specializes in highly effective programs for customer acquisition and retention. The company builds and maintains proprietary customer and prospect databases for clients, deploys personalized e-mail marketing campaigns to confirmed opt-in members, and powers geographically targeted promotions for thousands of companies nationwide. Prospectiv Direct’s services include acquisition planning, permission-based email, and customer database building and management, all designed to create a one-to-one connection between top brands and committed consumers.
"This move represents a broadening of the company’s purview during a time when other online marketing companies are struggling to survive," said John Brodeur, a member of Prospectiv Direct’s Board of Directors and Chairman of Brodeur Worldwide. "Prospectiv Direct allows us to build our customer acquisition capabilities and gives us the opportunity to develop and market new offerings."
