San Francisco Chamber of Commerce Selects VerticalResponse for Online Marketing Initiatives

Email Marketer Provides San Francisco's Leading Business Organization With a Comprehensive Service for Managing Its Multiple Email Marketing Programs

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 15, 2006 -- VerticalResponse, the leading provider of self-service email marketing and direct mail solutions, today announced they've been selected as the email marketing service for the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce, San Francisco's leading business organization. The nonprofit organization selected VerticalResponse after reviewing several options and previously using another service. The Chamber selected VerticalResponse primarily for its ease-of-use and the company's high level of customer service, and will use it for its ongoing email marketing initiatives related to its numerous events and programs.

Multiple contacts at the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce manage many events and programs throughout the year and each uses email marketing as one of the primary means to provide their contacts with information. The organization previously used another email marketing service but was not satisfied with the level of customer service they received. They also experimented with other email marketing methods, such as using an internal exchange server, but needed a comprehensive service to effectively manage their numerous campaigns.

"We have multiple marketing directors who use email marketing to provide information on their events and programs, so it's important that we use an email marketing service that is both comprehensive and easy to use," said Justin Gipson, Webmaster, San Francisco Chamber of Commerce. "We researched numerous options and VerticalResponse emerged as the clear choice for us. It offers everything we need in an email marketing service, however their exceptional customer service truly sets them apart."

VerticalResponse customized their service to meet the Chamber's needs and provide them with a streamlined service that anyone can use to create an efficient and effective email marketing campaign.

"The San Francisco Chamber of Commerce is like many of our customers, in that they require an email marketing service that is easy-to-use yet powerful, and also has to be flexible to meet their specific needs," said VerticalResponse CEO Janine Popick. "At VerticalResponse, we listen to our customers and build features that benefit all of our customers' needs so they can get the most out of their email marketing initiatives."
