Bronto Software Named Leading Email Marketing Provider to the Internet Retailer Top 1000

Commerce-focused provider ranked second overall and is top self-service email platform

Durham, NC - September 5, 2012 - Bronto Software (bronto.com), the leading marketing platform for retailers, today announced it has been ranked as the second leading email marketing provider to Internet Retailer’s 2012 Top 1000 online retailers.  With the second-highest number of customers in the Top 1000, notable Bronto clients include Gander Direct, Bidz.com, and Nasty Gal.

One of the Top 500 e-retailers, Discount Dance Supply (No. 326) provides an example of why so many retailers choose to work with Bronto for email marketing. In less than one year of using Bronto, Discount Dance saw an 84% increase in e-commerce sales tied to email marketing, which they attributed to better email design, deliverability and segmentation capabilities. Email marketing makes up 8% of their overall online sales. Just one successful email campaign paid for Bronto services for over 3 years, exemplifying the channel’s solid return on investment.

“Email marketing plays a very important role in our overall strategy, second only to our PPC (pay-per-click) campaign,” said John Miller, Discount Dance e-commerce director. “I attribute these great results to email design changes and increased deliverability.”

Bronto sees success like this with many of its clients, and the company is proud of the results from its focus on commerce.

“Email continues to deliver one of the strongest returns on investment for retailers. It is our privilege to be able to help many of them profit by delivering on the promise of a better shopping experience,” said Bronto CEO, Joe Colopy. “We are honored to be part of the success these innovative retailers have achieved and wish them even more success in 2013.”
