Together, Campaigner® and iStockphoto Help Email Marketers Get the Picture

Campaigner® and iStockphoto Collaborate to Provide a 20% Discount on Images Selected From iStockphoto's Library of Over Eight-Million Images

OTTAWA--(Marketwire - March 8, 2011) - Campaigner, an email marketing service provider that empowers companies to better attract and retain business through creative email marketing campaigns, today announced a new collaboration with iStockphoto, a leading provider of royalty-free stock images. The collaboration will allow Campaigner subscribers who join iStockphoto through Campaigner to select, preview, and purchase royalty-free images from iStockphoto at a 20% discount. Campaigner is online at

"The iStockphoto-Campaigner relationship gives our small business customers the enhanced tools needed to pull together professional-looking email marketing campaigns that can drive results," said Steve Adams, vice president and general manager for Campaigner. "Visual imagery has proven to be a very powerful component of successful email marketing campaigns and this collaboration will allow our customers to take advantage of visuals to help impact their business' bottom line."

Email marketing can help a business more effectively communicate with its target audience, while offering robust opportunities to rigorously measure key aspects of campaigns for effectiveness. The Campaigner service allows images to be measured for performance, enhancing the fact that well chosen images can efficiently convey ideas and concepts and drive higher click through rates.

The Campaigner/iStockphoto collaboration complements other key features of the Campaigner service, including:

Email preview
Campaigner users can preview the look and feel of an email before it is received by customers. This allows users to see and modify image size and placement before the campaign is sent.

It is simple to apply filters to allow users to identify and segment customers and prospects into groups. Content and images can be personalized for each segment.

Reporting Tools
The click overlay report tells the story around each email by highlighting how recipients interact with each campaign. For example, data about who clicks on an image link will give direction to future interaction. If the report shows it is a big draw, the image can be used again in a future email.

Access to iStockphoto images is available immediately at for current Campaigner customers who subscribe to iStockphoto through the Campaigner website. For small businesses interested in trying out these features, Campaigner offers a free 30-day email marketing trial to help get started on effective email marketing.
