JupiterResearch vice president and research director David Daniels has been appointed to lead the newly formed E-mail Measurement Accuracy Coalition, a cross-industry workgroup of e-mail marketing professionals. The group’s mission is to provide recommendations for guidelines to measure e-mail deliverability and other key e-mail marketing performance indicators. The group comprises industry experts and marketing professionals, including principals from e-mail and delivery service vendors.

“There is a fundamental lack of consensus across the e-mail marketing industry on how e-mail performance is measured, which ultimately undermines the effectiveness of the medium and renders cross-industry benchmarks useless,” Daniels says.

In related news, StrongMail Systems Inc., an e-mail infrastructure software vendor, has joined the coalition as a charter member. StrongMail has long endorsed the establishment of standardized e-mail metrics and bounce data, and has pushed the cause through various trade organizations and research, the company says.

StrongMail’s involvement in the E-mail Measurement Accuracy Coalition complements ongoing efforts the company has made through the E-mail Service & Provider Coalition, the Messaging Anti-Abuse Working Group and other industry organizations, it adds.
