Unlike other Internet marketing companies that provide management service in only one particular area, ie-business provides a specialized bundle of all of the necessary services customized for each client to create a successful and comprehensive e-commerce and multi-channel solution.
We evaluate the current retail mix and develop a unique strategy to transition and expand our clients that traditionally have not maximized their Internet or multi-channel marketing into e-commerce to increase revenues and brand exposure.

Multi-Channel and Cross-Channel
From a strategic viewpoint, we distinguish between multi-channel retail and cross-channel marketing to develop multi-channel strategies unique to each client.
Multi-channel retailing is when a company provides purchase opportunities to prospects and customers via multiple retail platforms. This can be any combination of brick-and-mortar stores, Web sites and catalogs (including media/telecommunication sales), but must include a combination of at least two of these channels.
Cross-channel marketing is the coordinated, focused and highly integrated use of multiple marketing channels to expose a brand and increase revenue. Any company selling a product or service can develop and implement a successful cross-channel marketing strategy which employs email marketing, direct marketing (mail and catalog), advertising media (print, TV, outdoor & radio) and search engine marketing (SEM) with the right resources.
For companies first evolving into multi-channel retailing and cross-channel marketing, we develop a comprehensive, customized multi-channel strategy including integrated direct marketing, email and e-commerce. For current multi-channel retailers, we evaluate their current multi-channel efforts and develop a multi-channel strategy that will infuse their business with increased exposure and revenue through the development and management of a cross-channel marketing program which integrates the proper mix of direct marketing, email and SEM.
Our multi-channel strategies include:
Evaluation and determination of target market segments for prospects and CRM.
Personalized communications in numerous communications forms – SEM, emails and direct marketing.
Construction of personalization rules.
Cross-channel marketing map.
Creation of relevant offers with personalization at an individual level.
Creative and copywriting services.
Tracking and analysis of cross-channel marketing efforts for refinement and continued management and determination of ROI and ROAS.
