TurnTo Launches Ask Owners – the First Social Q & A Application to Harness Online Stores’ Entire Customer Base

NEW YORK Feb. 23, 2011

Ask Owners furthers TurnTo's mission of unlocking the marketing value hidden in a store's customer base by building direct connections between shoppers and past customers.  Ask Owners joins two other products in TurnTo's Social Commerce Suite.  "Social Merchandising" tells shoppers which of their friends (from Facebook and their address books) are customers of the store, so shoppers can reach out to get the most trusted advice available – advice from friends.  "Purchase Sharing" captures buyers' good will right at the point of purchase with the question "Why did you choose this?" and makes those answers visible to shoppers throughout the merchant site.

Ask Owners has been in trials on a dozen merchant sites since November.  These sites span a broad range of verticals: home furnishings, electronics, jewelry, vitamins and supplements, and entertainment.  Key performance measures from the trial on these sites include:

  • 6% answer rate on question emails to past customers
  • An average of 3 social answers for each question asked
  • Most questions receive their first social answer in under 4 hours

Merchants already using Ask Owners say the system has many benefits.

First, the large volume of user content generated by the Ask Owners system provides a valuable research tool for shoppers that drives conversion while also delivering significant SEO benefits.

  • Across all stores using TurnTo, visitors who in

Experian Marketing Services’ CheetahMail Empowers Consumers with the Launch of New Facebook Functionality

NEW YORK Feb. 23, 2011

Using Facebook's open Application Programming Interface (API), CheetahMail's clients can now insert Facebook "Like" buttons in their emails using a simple tag, and subscribers can "Like" the brand, the email or specific product(s) with one click. To date, most email programs have had a two-click solution that takes subscribers to the brand's fan page, where they then can choose to "Like" the brand. This one-click process reduces the risk of customers abandoning the effort and ensures stronger interactivity with the email.

CheetahMail's Strategic Services team reports that transactional emails including links to social media sites had 55 percent higher click rates than emails without social links. CheetahMail's new functionality allows marketers to leverage both email and social media to empower customers to become brand advocates while increasing acquisition opportunities.

Hatch Works With AT&T to Deliver Enhanced Global Network Infrastructure to Support Its Worldwide Operations

TORONTO Feb. 23, 2011 AT&T

By working with AT&T, a best-in-class global supplier, Hatch aims to make better use of its information technology assets, improve the quality of its services and increase its competitive advantage by bringing more than 65 different offices onto AT&T's network. Hatch designs and builds some of the world's largest and most complex projects in mining and metals, energy and infrastructure on six continents. To work in these areas, the company's engineers need to access a host of engineering software and design applications. Without access to the proper tools and information, Hatch would not be able to deliver successful project outcomes that their clients expect.
