  • Mossy Side not only helps improve the personalization of your e-mail campaigns, but can also add any medium such as Twitter, SMS, and so on.
  • Target your campaigns at an individual level without absorbing the cost of more IT staff. Each engineer you hire is going to cost $100,000 to $150,000 a year. Let MS absorb those costs so you can focus your resources on your core business.
  • Because the communication is individualized for the users, it is easy to track it, and report back into your ROI calculations, whether it’s measured on clicks, purchases, views, or any other metric.

  • The good news, according to Merkle, in a 2009 report, is that consumers are more willing to opt-in, and receive e-mails from companies than they have been in the past. In fact, this is the first rise in over 6 years. The bad news, if you’re not careful, is why customers opt-out of the company messaging. 75% leave because the communication isn’t relevant, and 73% leave because it’s too frequent. Mossy Side is intended for this very purpose. Not only does it help tailor the messaging to the individual, and thereby increasing it’s value, but it offers customers the ability to interact and shape the messaging they receive.

  • Another interesting finding from Merkle, is that there is an inverse relationship between the value and quantity of communications they receive. Think about your own interaction online, and the value of a receipt or confirmation versus the value of yet another blindly sent offer. Once again, Mossy Side helps trim down your communication to the essentials, providing value to your customer and in return, to your business.
