Emeryville, Calif. – May 22, 2012 – Lyris, Inc. (OTCBB: LYRI.OB), the global digital marketing expert, today announced that Smith Micro Software, Inc., a developer of award-winning creative and utilities software, has deployed Lyris HQ to better manage and increase revenue from its email marketing programs. By implementing Lyris HQ, Smith Micro has been able to develop new campaigns that deliver against aggressive performance standards and provide products and offers that are valuable to its customers. Additionally, Lyris is helping Smith Micro grow their database by helping define and implement multiple opt-in points across web properties, which has resulted in improved list size and quality.
“Lyris has allowed us to dramatically improve our program control and visibility, making it easier to execute targeted follow-up campaigns and monetize our offers on a large scale,” said Lin Petrucci, VP Operations, Northern California of Smith Micro Software, Inc. “After using Lyris HQ for several months, we are already seeing more dependable results from mailing to mailing with open rates consistently in the 15-25 percent range, and click-through rates stabilizing to an acceptable range for industry standards.”
Smith Micro has also experienced success using Lyris HQ’s re-targeting and advanced segmentation capabilities. By creating new activity-based groups of users, Smith Micro was able to alter the content of a campaign and resend as a “last chance opportunity” before an offer expired. With this strategy, Smith Micro increased its open rates up to a high of 80 percent, generating additional revenue as specific campaigns came to a close.
