eROI Partners With Return Path to Provide Advanced Email Content Rendering and Deliverability Reporting to Clients

Return Path's Sender Score Platform Monitors Reputation and Guides Campaign Decisions for Leading Email Marketing Agency

PORTLAND, OR and DENVER, CO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 15, 2007 -- eROI and Return Path announced today that eROI has started using Return Path's Sender Score platform to monitor and provide advanced email content rendering and enhanced deliverability reporting for its clients. eROI uses the full set of Return Path delivery tools to analyze deliverability before, during and after email campaigns are sent so that they can provide a holistic view of sender delivery problems.

"Sender Score allows us the additional insight into whether our clients have delivery or creative problems, and what we need to do to fix them," says Ryan Buchanan, CEO of eROI. "Between the pre-campaign creative rendering and delivery checks we can do with Campaign Preview, delivery monitoring, and the in-depth troubleshooting with Reputation Monitor, our clients will see greater results from their email programs."

With 83 percent of email delivery issues being directly tied to the sender's email reputation, monitoring and repairing email reputation issues has become a critical component to email marketing success. Sender Score Reputation Monitor helps email agencies stay on top of their clients' email reputations, providing data on complaint rates, email infrastructure, blacklists, whitelists, bounce rates and more.

"To see a sender's reputation as ISPs and filtering companies do is a huge advantage for email marketing firms like eROI," says Heather Goff, director of deliverability consulting for Return Path. "With the reputation data Return Path provides, eROI can identify delivery issues and give strategic, actionable advice to clients. In turn, this allows them to increase their inbox placement and response rates over time. "

Sender Score Reputation Monitor can also be used in the new business process for agencies, helping to determine what clients to take or how to handle their email infrastructure. "If a potential client has a terrible email reputation, we know that we need to work with them to repair it before we can send email on their behalf," Buchanan says. "That information saves us a lot of time, sparing everyone the headache that bad email reputations create."
