The World's Largest and Most Innovative Digital Marketing Agencies Partner With Webtrends

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - September 1, 2010) -  The largest global digital agencies are partnering with Webtrends to provide clients with more effective insights across digital and traditional media channels. Webtrends has signed more than 20 digital marketing agency partners, including Razorfish, SapientNitro and ZAAZ, in the first six months of this year. 

Webtrends and premier digital agency partners will collaborate to provide CMOs and other marketing executives with greater consumer insights, measurement strategies and innovative ways to optimize their digital marketing campaigns. This new collaborative approach will help marketers increase the return from their online initiatives by helping them create, measure and improve their campaigns and overall marketing expenditures.

"As our clients continue to experiment with and develop their online strategies, the desire for better analysis, measurement and optimization is key," said William Flaiz, GM of Global Solutions, Razorfish. "This strategic partnership with Webtrends will help our many mutual clients meet their marketing and revenue objectives across different geographies and channels."

"SapientNitro is in the business of trying to understand consumer behavior in the context of both marketing and commerce," said Marc Schwartz, Director of Strategy and Analysis at SapientNitro. "The tools and data that Webtrends provide not only help us to better understand today's digitally-driven consumers but help us to harness these insights into actions, and to transform our clients' businesses in the process."

"The cornerstone of digital strategy at ZAAZ lies in performance marketing -- the ability to see what is working or not working and to make intelligent adjustments based on that insight in real time," said Jason Burby, Chief Analytics and Optimization Officer at ZAAZ, and co-author of Actionable Web Analytics. "We look forward to working with the team and technologies at Webtrends to expand on this concept with our mutual clients."
