Euro RSCG Circle-Boston is deepening its digital media expertise with the hire of Chia Chen as VP and director of account services.

Web analytics player Coremetrics has signed three new specialty retailers. Footsmart, Golfsmith and Sure Fit will use the company’s Web metrics platform to capture customer and visitor clickstream activity.

“With Coremetrics, we will be able to use ROI metrics to target marketing programs that have stronger returns,” said Karen Howard, senior online merchandising manager at FootSmart. “We also plan to improve online merchandising by analyzing our product placements, as well as understanding the cause and effect of abandonment rates.”

Optiem has designed a site for new client International Steel Group. The Web presence provides information on the company and its products and facilities, as well as secure areas for customers, suppliers and employees.

“We’re proud to have been selected by ISG to develop the site,” said Optiem President Thom Ruhe. “They have embraced the productivity and customer service benefits of the Internet — to the benefit of shareholders.”
