Flycast Communications Corp. launched new email marketing division called Flycast eDispatch.

Operating in conjunction with the Flycast Network, the service will provide direct response and e-commerce marketers with an integrated suite of tools and services designed to maximize the effectiveness of online marketing initiatives, the company said.

Flycast co-founder Larry Braitman is heading the new division and has been named executive vice president of eDispatch.

The Flycast network includes more than 1,000 Web sites reaching 41 percent of the U.S. Web population each month, the company said.

“E-mail is the ultimate direct response medium and Flycast is uniquely positioned to leverage its potential,” said George Garrick, chairman and CEO of Flycast. “Flycast eDispatch is a natural extension for the company. Our goal is to be the one-stop shop for interactive direct response solutions and email is an integral part of our services going forward.”

eDispatch will package and manage email advertising campaigns across thousands of individual vehicles, the company said. It will centralize buying, trafficking and performance tracking, and support both text and graphical publications and advertising.

Flycast will serve as an aggregator of opt-in email name lists, working with its current Flycast Network sites to drive consumer sign-ups.

Flycast eDispatch also will create new revenue streams for Flycast Network sites, which will be able to offer newsletter inventory in addition to Web site inventory to advertisers via Flycast, the company said. Launch is expected in the fourth quarter.
