Lowe Lintas Signs ClickAction for E-mail Marketing

ClickAction nets a second high-profile client-partner in as manyweeks.

Ad agency Lowe Lintas & Partners will use services provided by direct email providers ClickAction, to enhance its domestic units’ email marketing capabilities, the companies reported Monday.

According to terms of the deal, the agency’s digital design unit, Lowe Lintas Interactive, and direct marketing division Lowe Lintas Direct will continue to handle strategy and creative for the agency’s email marketing clients, which include Heineken USA’s Amstel and RCN Corp.

ClickAction will handle back-end affairs, enabling the agency to deliver to and manage lists of opt-in email addresses, as well as tracking and reporting. Its Web-based tools also feature profiling, which will allow Lowe Lintas to target and personalize email offers to recipients.

The deal enables the agency to expand its list of client service offerings, and ClickAction to include as its users the units and clients of one of the top advertising groups worldwide. The Lowe Group, of which Lowe Lintas & Partners is a unit, is in turn a member of the Interpublic Group — one of the largest worldwide ad groups in terms of billings.

“ClickAction benefits from the access to new and prestigious clients and to the strategic and creative proficiency of Lowe Lintas & Partners, while providing sophisticated technology to help refine and customize the marketing approach,” said ClickAction president and chief executive officer Gregory Slayton. “Lowe Lintas & Partners and ClickAction have complementary skills which will position the agency with an immediate email marketing advantage.”

“In an ever-evolving industry it’s important to be at the forefront of new developments and to ensure that our clients receive the most advanced levels of service,” said Lowe Lintas & Partners president Bruce Kelley. “ClickAction will provide crucial back-end support to Lowe Lintas’ strategic email marketing capabilities.”

“We have the necessary know-how to build relationship strategies online,” said Lowe Lintas Interactive managing director Dan Goodman. “ClickAction’s state-of-the-art technology will provide us with the robust solutions we need to manage our online dialogue.”

ClickAction clients include ad network culinary retailers Dean & Deluca and Sara Lee, and clothing retailer Brooks Brothers.

Last week, ClickAction added ad management and delivery company AdForce, a CMGI, company, as a partner offering its email marketing services to clients.

In late July, ClickAction forged a similar agreement with direct marketers Grey Direct , a unit of Grey Advertising, another highly ranked global ad group.
