Personalized Automatic Publishing Patent to be Sold at ICAP Fall 2011 Live IP Auction
Software based on this unique IP creates personalized messages that are automatically sent to customers. The IP uses customer profiles to send compelling messages via email, direct mail, social networks, websites, blogs, or SMS.
This patent portfolio discloses techniques for electronically generated personalized communication. Typically, software applications provide common templates to save time when building documents. Common templates are a collection of placeholders for a specific type of data. However, changing the type of data, output format or the final document are not possible in conventional software applications that address the generation of these templates and the communications media that implement them. Therefore, techniques are required for automatically generating media independent personalized communications.
This portfolio provides a solution for automated and personalized communication between a company or organization and its customers, prospective customers, and constituents. Typically, implemented as a software solution, the disclosed techniques enable a user organization to automatically personalize professionally designed communications from a single content management database across virtually any media type, for example, email, direct mail, social networking, websites, blogs, or SMS messaging.
The described techniques dramatically improve the way organizations engage, develop, and retain their customers and constituents on an individual basis. Organizations can use this technology to engage and retain individual customers or donors without the need for complicated HTML coding, or resource-intensive software. A profile for each customer/donor with their defined interests and geographic region is created and then personalized messages - based on those interests and locale - are automatically sent to the customer. Therefore, thoughtful and individualized attention can be applied to small and large customers/donors alike, providing personalized content according to their wants and needs in order to engage and retain them for the long term.
Entitled “Personalized Automatic Publishing Extensible Layouts", US Provisional Application No. 60/511,606, was filed on Oct. 14, 2003. The Non-provisional Application issued in 2007 as US Patent No 7,185,280.
