ATLANTA, July 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — iContact Corp., a leading email marketing and social media marketing company, will be speaking on July 19 at the Online Marketing Summit (OMS) in Atlanta. The presentation by Sally Lowery, director of revenue marketing, titled, “Social DIDN’T Kill the Email Star: How Email + Social = Better Engagement,” will offer best practices for creating a cohesive email and social media marketing strategy. This is the fourth of iContact’s six appearances in the OMS Regional and National Tour.
“Social media usage is experiencing explosive consumer growth, and it is playing a more critical role in our customers’ integrated online marketing campaign,” said Jeff Revoy, iContact’s chief marketing and product officer. “Marketers must learn the nuances of how to synch social media with email marketing to achieve a higher ROI. They also need to outline objectives and goals, and have quantitative tools on hand to gauge whether a campaign is yielding the desired results. iContact welcomes the opportunity to share our knowledge in helping small and medium businesses succeed and grow at the OMS.”
One of the primary benefits of blending social media with email marketing is to create a two-way conversation between a business and its customers, as well as to expand to other target audiences. According to the 2011 Social Media Marketing Industry Report, social media is a primary tool for marketers, with 88 percent surveyed viewing it as critical for increasing their exposure.
