The Pedowitz Group Launches SWEET™

SWEET™ Integrates a Social Media Marketing Strategy With Demand Generation

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - May 19, 2010) -  The Pedowitz Group, the world's largest and most experienced demand generation agency, announced today the launch of SWEET™, a Web-based SaaS platform aimed at helping organizations monetize their social media efforts. SWEET was developed by The Pedowitz Group so marketers could finally connect social media activity with demand generation efforts and marketing automation tools.

SWEET is an integrated platform that spans the entire social web, tying disparate channels like Text, Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook, as well as the multitude of blogs and forum sites, into a cohesive, measurable demand generation channel. SWEET's integration with marketing automation platforms allows for social media platforms to be included in automated, trigger-based campaigns.

SWEET listens to social media conversations and profiles, segments and prioritizes individuals based on their social activity. As a result, key influencers can be identified more easily and directly engaged in a sales process. SWEET drives demand by uncovering more early stage sales opportunities. 

"With SWEET, social media becomes simply another measurable demand generation channel, just like traditional email and direct mail," said Jeff Pedowitz, President and CEO of The Pedowitz Group. "Social media has caused the timing and shaping of buying decisions to occur long before a website visit or email click." SWEET extends a company's existing automated, intelligent demand generation efforts from traditional marketing channels to social media platforms by leveraging integrations with Marketing Automation systems. Used in conjunction with marketing automation, SWEET increases campaign efficiency and shortens sales cycles by driving engagement at the right time, to the right people.

SWEET has been in private beta with companies that span the Sports and Entertainment industry, Politics, Insurance, and Technology. "Every organization, no matter what industry, is trying to make some sense of the social dialogue, and trying to figure out how to take advantage of the massive amount of information that is available, without having to change their entire business process. SWEET can do that for them," Pedowitz concluded.
