ATLANTA, March 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Silverpop™, the only digital marketing
technology provider that unifies marketing automation, email, mobile and
social, today announces new mobile messaging capabilities that add another
dimension to the company's unique ability to deliver true multichannel,
one-to-one, campaign automation to its customers. In addition to allowing
Silverpop customers to implement automated, behavior-based SMS campaigns, the
company's centralized database ensures that the data marketers collect from
these interactions can be used to deliver a seamless, personalized and
targeted email, social and Web content experience as well.

"In today's multichannel world, in which 67 percent of the global population
uses mobile phones^1, it's imperative that marketers communicate on their
customers' terms, delivering relevant and personalized content when and where
they expect it," said Bryan Brown, director of product strategy with
Silverpop. "With our new mobile offering, not only do our clients have even
more exciting ways to engage with their contacts, but through these
interactions they will be able to learn more about each individual– collecting
valuable data that can be used to encourage them to make a purchase decision.
And with our mobile messaging and email offerings working seamlessly together
on one platform, marketers can ensure messages are as consistent, targeted and
relevant as they can possibly be."

To make these mobile marketing capabilities possible, Silverpop has partnered
with Velti, the leading global provider of mobile marketing and advertising
technology. The functionality includes previously available features such as
email opt-in via SMS, promotional texts and text alerts, as well as new
capabilities, including the following:

  oText for Information – Marketers can allow their mobile customers to
    request and receive information via a texted keyword
  oText to Screen – Marketers can make it possible for presenters, speakers
    and conference hosts to interact with attendees in real-time by displaying
    content submitted via text during a live presentation
  oText to Vote – Marketers can deploy campaigns where mobile participants
    can cast a vote via text
  o2-Way SMS Interactive Campaigns – Recipients can initiate a two-way
    dialogue with a company by sending a keyword via text that triggers a
    series of additional text messages based on a predefined workflow.
  oText to Win – Marketers can enable customers to enter a contest or drawing
    by texting a keyword

Many of these new features allow marketers to take advantage of pre-developed
templates rather than having to manually build new campaigns. And the
campaigns can be cross promoted via an unlimited number of channels, including
television, radio, direct mail, Web, email and social.

Given Silverpop's unique, integrated platform, these mobile campaigns can be
part of a strategically planned multichannelapproach, with data collected via
mobile devices powering email marketing campaigns and Web content, and vice
versa. Any action a recipient takes via these channels will become part of the
contact's record, ensuring that marketing communications are incredibly
consistent and reflective of preferences declared and inferred based on
behavior across channels.

"We are thrilled to work with Silverpop, a like-minded company that
understands the importance of mobile in an effective marketing strategy," said
Niles Lichtenstein, Vice President of Platforms, Velti. "In a world where the
traditional notion of a marketing funnel has been drastically altered by the
range of channels a brand can use, the mobile device becomes a critical way to
delivering highly relevant messaging at the right time and in the right
context. The powerful combination of delivering coordinated messaging across
mobile, email and Web is a game changer for today's digital marketers."
