"Consumers love email and we wanted to make it as simple as possible for local event organizers to create and send communications marketing their events to a targeted, opt in audience," said Richard Green, CEO, Evvnt Inc.

Evvnt is a dynamic event marketing automation platform which syndicates events content to multiple event listing sites and calendars as a service.

Email as a revenue stream 3/12/18

By Jane Nicholes, SNPA Correspondent

Chances are, many SNPA newspapers already know about Site Impact, the email marketing company that goes through 145 million addresses to find just the consumers who may be interested in a client's ad.

While CEO Brandon Rosen keeps the papers' names confidential so as not to give away competitive strategies, he says there are a lot of them. "The reason to work with us for the newspapers is, we're the source. We're a wholesale email marketing company. There are a lot of brokers out there. We don't broker anything."

Rosen will say that six of the 10 largest newspaper companies in the country are clients of Site Impact and two more are in negotiations. Smaller groups of papers use it as well, as do other media companies, advertising agencies, list brokers, radio and TV stations.

Site Impact, www.siteimpact.com, which has recently applied to membership in SNPA, prides itself on speed and the reliability of its database. If one newspaper has its own database of 10,000 emails, Site Impact probably has 20,000 in the same area, Rosen said.
