Working with email service provider Silverpop, Whereoware simplified its emails by creating straightforward calls to action and using limited text in larger fonts. It also shortened subject lines and limited design to one column, Flick said, and it made sure call-to-action buttons were larger and padded with 10-to-15 pixels of white space, so recipients can select them easily.

Whereoware’s Smart Blink allows users to personalize websites

Site marketers can now alter the message displayed on a website based upon visitor characteristics

WASHINGTON D.C., January 6th, 2012 – Whereoware’s Smart Blink, a Flash substitute, now provides an easy way to personalize websites. Site marketers can now alter the message displayed on a website based upon visitor characteristics. Smart Blink makes it simple to keep home pages fresh and create a more relevant and compelling online experience for site visitors.

Smart Blink, built on the Active Merchandiser platform, changes based upon visit frequency, geographic region, or area of interest. It detects which type of visitor is on the site and then displays the correct message. “New Visitors,” for example, can be shown a welcome message, while “Occasional Visitors” may be enticed to purchase again with a discount. “Frequent Visitors,” by contrast, may be interested in seeing what new products have arrived.

Users can also personalize a Smart Blink to meet differing customer needs based on geography. For example, shipping prices may vary depending on whether a customer is on the West Coast or the East Coast. The Smart Blink can be tailored to display different shipping promotions to each region. The same can be done based upon area of interest. If a customer has purchased lamps and lampshades in the past, Smart Blink can recognize this attribute and display an image with lamps and related promotions. This helps to create a personalized experience for each visitor.
