CEO Sharon Price John says Build-A-Bear’s old e-commerce system is a big reason for disappointing online sales in December.
The company also gained 112 customers during that period.
INDIANAPOLIS, IND. - Sept. 2, 2010 - Delivra, one of the original e-mail service providers, announced historic growth in both revenue and new customers during the first half of 2010. The company reported a 20% increase in revenue for its core hosting business and the addition of 112 new customers.
"In the first half of this year we already have surpassed our historic growth pattern, and we are optimistic about the second half of the year,"
says Neil Berman, president and CEO. "In addition to robust new customer growth, current customers contributed to our success by increasing their sending volume, which proves that email marketing is a cost-effective solution even during a prolonged recession."
Delivra pointed to other highlights that have contributed to its growth, including being named a 2010 Indiana Company to Watch, partnering with Flimp for email marketing with trackable video, integrating with Cantaloupe's VideoHere online video management system, and the company's robust tracking capabilities for email marketing content shared via social media.
"Delivra is working diligently to provide the products and services our customers need to drive more value and we are being rewarded with a greater share of email marketing spending," said Berman.
Delivra offers permission-based email marketing software and personalized services at an attractive price. Delivra has clients nationwide of all sizes and in all major industries including Del Monte, American Legion, National Geographic, Butler University, US Rowing, Harris Connect and Samsung.
