Iterable SparkPost Partnership Announcement

Why We’re Partnering with Iterable to Deliver Growth Marketing

I’m certainly not the first to say that the digitization of information has proven to be the most powerful development of our age. It’s revolutionized our lives. It’s changed the way we do business. And it’s advancing faster than many of us realize.

One really significant example of this impact of data is the increasing prominence of “growth marketing.” Growth marketing is one of those ideas that’s come at just the right time, when business needs and technology capabilities align to make an idea really take off. It’s all about using the exponential increase in data in our marketing tools to shape how our customers and prospects interact with our businesses—both to increase the value to our business and to improve our customers’ experience.

Marketers are helping increase profit margins by using data science to understand customers at increasingly intimate levels—who they are, what they want, and what they might do next. With that intel, companies are engaging customers with messages that are scientifically targeted to motivate customer movement through the funnel—and increase their own competitiveness.

While this sort of data-driven capability traditionally has required complex systems and a team of data scientists to really execute, a new generation of tools is making the core methods of growth marketing accessible to the rest of us. That’s a remarkable change, and it’s one of the reasons our team at SparkPost is really excited about our new partnership with Iterable, whose next-generation Growth Marketing Platform is gaining industry recognition in its own right.

In his announcement about working with Iterable, SparkPost’s CEO, Phillip Merrick, said, “We are happy to announce this best-of-breed offering to our customers. This combination of SparkPost’s high-performing cloud email service with the front-end growth marketing capabilities of Iterable provides customers with the ability to rapidly improve customer engagement through faster iterations of data-driven marketing campaigns.”

Phillip’s right. We’re really excited about this. The prebuilt, out-of-the-box email and data integration between our services let our joint customers take advantage of SparkPost’s strengths—like our email performance and rich analytics—and Iterable’s flexibility and ease of use to make a data-driven, growth marketing strategy reality. To put it another way: this combination makes it easy for email marketers to hit the ground running and be successful with growth marketing. Quickly.

Some other partnership advantages we are proud to be delivering to our customers include:

  • Less drain on development
  • Powerful multi-channel tools
  • The ability to rapidly improve customer engagement
  • Increased efficiency of data-driven marketing campaigns

I also want to say that not only is this a powerful combined toolset, but it just might be a lot fun to use! I personally was really impressed when I saw the way our tools worked together to use Iterable to define triggered emails as part of a growth campaign, for example.

By the way, SparkPost and Iterable recently shared some advice for turbo-charging growth marketing in a recent webinar together—it’s definitely worth checking out. And if you’d like to learn more about the partnership, you can read the entire press release here.
