Flimp Media, iPost partner for video email

When it comes to online video many marketers want it but few know exactly what to do with it. A partnership between rich media developer Flimp Media and email analytics firm iPost could help by giving marketers a simple way to integrate email and video. The platform will use iPost's predictive analysis unit to build, distribute and track email campaigns while at the same time harnessing Flimp's video landing page solution.

This should help to more deeply engage consumers by giving a more direct email to video link. Using the new platform email marketers can easily create 'audiovisual landing pages' as well as video emails so that consumers have that rich media engagement without the need to click through several pages to obtain engagement.

"Email marketing remains the most cost-effective and efficient way for brands to engage customers," said John Janetos, vice president of business development and marketing, iPost. "By bringing together iPost's email marketing solutions with Flimp Media's video landing page solution we add another layer of engagement that will help marketers further improve their conversion rates with customers."

Although the new platform will help marketers integrate video and email marketers must remember one rule: content is still the key. Simply adding on a generic video will not engage the consumer any more than Tweeting a brand's tagline will generate more social hits. The content between any rich media and email should be filled with added value. Rather than sending the consumer a commercial, for example, a smart marketer will use a video showing alternative uses for a product or successful reviews from satisfied customers.
