-- SEATTLE and LONDON - 4th January 2013 –
nFluence Media is pleased to announce that its consumer driven personalisation technology has been nominated for “Best Innovation in Data Marketing” in the highly prestigious Data Strategy Awards 2013 (http://www.datastrategyawards.co.uk/)
nFluence’s proprietary consumer driven personalisation technology allows marketers to reach out to their key audience and target them with relevant messages, offers, adverts and content personalised to their interests. The company has devised a manner in which consumers can volunteer information about themselves through a fun, game-like user interface called “Brand Sorting”, to build up anonymous profiles of their interests and characteristics called Advertars™. These profiles are highly versatile and can be employed for a variety of marketing purposes across the digital media landscape, all under the control of the consumer.
Powered by Marketing Week (http://www.marketingweek.co.uk/
), the Data Strategy Awards celebrate the very best in data-driven marketing, rewarding
brands for their clever use of data insight to drive efficiency, relevance and most of all, effectiveness. The “Best Innovation in Data Marketing” is a new category devised to highlight a successful campaign, project or brand strategy that has showed innovation either new to the entrant or the industry as a whole.
Henry Lawson, CEO of nFluence, comments; “Slicing and dicing Big Data is in vogue, but we have proven that by simply being transparent and involving the consumer in the data collection process you can achieve much richer insight. Therefore we’re thrilled to have been shortlisted for Best Innovation in Data Marketing in the 2013 Data Strategy Awards. It’s extremely humbling to know that the industry’s top professionals have recognised nFluence’s contribution to data marketing and the innovation behind our consumer driven personalisation technology.”Ruth Mortimer
