Flycast Rolls Out Newsletter Network
Page 1 of 1
Advertising network Flycast Communications on Wednesday launched a newsletter network, which will allow advertisers to make run-of-network and run-of-category buys over more than 100 newsletters.
Although companies like PennMedia.com have put together newsletter networks, no one other than Flycast has combined a Web site network with a newsletter network. But DoubleClick won't be far behind. The company announced its own newsletter network plans back in November, and expects to launch that service in the second quarter of this year.
The real value that this combination brings is when advertisers can make the network a place for one-stop-shopping, but no one is yet offering Web and e-mail newsletter packages.
In building its network, Flycast has first gone to its network of Web site affiliates, which number 1,900. So far, it has signed up 100 network members, and the company says more than 25 new newsletters are being added each week.
One of the company's efforts has been to sign up partners in the mailing technology space, so that publishers already using other applications can still insert advertisements from Flycast. So far, the company has partnered with Lyris Technologies, Boomerang.com and GuestTrack.
