Metrics Marketing Group, an analytics-driven database marketing and interactive services firm, announced today the release of their in-house developed Magento-ExactTarget integration, enabling merchants to create, deploy and track transactional emails with ExactTarget straight from the Magento platform.
ExactTarget, a leading global interactive marketing solutions provider, and Magento, the fastest growing eCommerce platform on the market, are two of Metrics’ leading interactive services. Metrics Marketing is the only solution provider in the Magento development community to offer the ExactTarget extension.
Metrics Marketing’s Magento-ExactTarget integration gives merchants the ability to create a better shopping experience for their customers by delivering targeted, relevant emails based on behavioral and transactional data. With this functionality, merchants can address abandoned shopping carts by employing highly effective and engaging emails to customers automatically. The integration offers more than 29 different triggered emails including newsletters, new order, order update, shipment update and more.
“Successful eCommerce sites need to focus on building long-term customer relationships instead of one-time transactions,” said Scott Roth, senior director of partner marketing and alliances at ExactTarget. “Metrics Marketing has integrated Magento and ExactTarget to help online marketers create an ongoing dialogue with their customers around the world through highly targeted and personalized interactive marketing programs.”
“As merchants look to create precise triggered and transactional emails to customers, the ExactTarget Extension for Magento provides an enterprise-class solution featuring ExactTarget’s award-winning email platform,” said Phil Robinson, head of business development for Magento. “And we appreciate the leadership once again shown by Metrics Marketing in bringing this extension to market.”
The Magento-ExactTarget integration is currently available for all of Magento’s platform editions including Magento Community, Professional and Enterprise. Metrics Marketing is continually updating the integration to include enhanced dashboards to feature simple analytics data, abandoned cart and campaigns.
“We saw an opportunity to improve the interaction between a distinguished eCommerce platform and a reputable interactive marketing platform to create a solution to target customers more effectively and efficiently,” said Stephen Kidwell, eCommerce practice director. “The Magento-ExactTarget integration now enables online retailers the opportunity to create a one-of-a-kind customer experience as a result of this improved interaction.”
Metrics Marketing is a Magento Gold Solution partner, ExactTarget Platinum reseller and 2010 ExactTarget Partner of the Year.
