The Webtrends Solution Provides Personalized Website Experiences To Targeted Visitor Segments
Portland, OR, – July 27, 2010 – Webtrends, an enterprise customer intelligence company, today announced the full availability of Optimize Profile Enhanced Targeting.
Combining the precision of Webtrends Optimize targeting and rich profile-based segmentation of Webtrends Segments, Optimize Profile Enhanced Targeting is the first joint product solution from Webtrends that provides marketers with the ability to deliver a personalized web experience based on past behavior to visitors on their websites.
Organizations are increasingly looking for ways to make their marketing efforts more effective and relevant with prospects and customers, and onsite marketing presents a huge area of opportunity to marketers. To date, marketers have focused the vast majority of their optimization efforts on offsite marketing activities. With Optimize Profile Enhanced Targeting, historical visitor segments are captured, explored and defined and through seamless, one-click integration, imported into Optimize where the segments are associated with content to target to specific high-value segments with the most relevant content and offers. This integration enables a marketer to define, evolve and reuse segments across multiple optimization tactics over time.
"We are delivering profile-based onsite targeting today with the convergence of in-session segmentation and the multivariate testing and behavioral targeting techniques of optimization," said Casey Carey, vice president product, Webtrends. "Webtrends customers pushing the envelope on how to use our products have acknowledged that profile based onsite targeting presents a great opportunity to maximize relevance, increase conversion rates, and ultimately see a significant return on their marketing investments."
According to a recent eMarketer report, digital advertising is projected to grow 10.8% in 2010 to $25.1 billion, reinforcing the need for marketers to focus on their key properties and target relevant content to site visitors. Optimize Profile Enhanced Targeting will help marketers maximize conversion rates by ensuring that optimized content is targeted to defined sets of user segments.
"One of the most effective things marketers can do is to target customers based on segmentation that includes deep profiles of visitor insights based on actual behaviors or actions over time, and across multiple online and offline channels," said John Lovett, lead analytics analyst with Web Analytics Demystified. "There is a big opportunity for marketers to adopt more onsite targeting using historical profiles and data."
