New Partnership with Blue Sky Factory Allows Marketers to Seamlessly Grow Their Audience
PITTSBURGH, PA (FEBRUARY 15, 2011) – JA Interactive, developers of the JA.TXT SMS marketing software, has announced opt-in integration with the Publicaster email marketing platform from Blue Sky Factory. With this integration, potential customers will be able to subscribe to a company’s email marketing list via text message.
“SMS and email marketing integration gives companies a new way to grow and continuously build their audience. Users are able to grow their email marketing and mobile subscriber databases at the same time,” said Justin Mastrangelo, President of JA Interactive.
Organizations using this technology have been able to add new subscribers to their email database in places where they weren’t able to before. Many of these marketers ask mobile users for their email address to send them more information about a product, service, or survey, or to complete a contest entry.
“One Blue Sky Factory client is using the big screen at minor league hockey games to run an ongoing contest via SMS and email. They’ve seen a large uptick in new email subscribers during every home game,” said Sean McGarry, a Blue Sky Factory Client Services Manager. “We are always looking for new ways to help our clients build their email marketing database, and using SMS is a great opportunity to do this.”
“In the future, I see this as an opportunity to take advantage of the immediate nature of text messaging, but also deliver expanded content through email,” said Mastrangelo.NEW! We have released Join By Text, a product that makes capturing email addresses from SMS very cost-effective. Learn more about capturing email list signups through text messaging at www.joinbytext.com.
