Online marketing analytics player Coremetrics has launched an e-mail marketing support program targeting the vendors of e-mail products.

Called LIVEmail, the program has four initial participants: @Once, CheetahMail, Digital Impact, and Responsys. Partners will integrate Coremetrics’ LIVE (Lifetime Individual Visitor Experience) profiles into their Web-based interfaces to increase the targeting capabilities of their campaigns.

According to Coremetrics, marketers using LIVEmail can target product abandoners, high service-level customers, accessory upsell candidates, application non-completers, high value customers and inactive visitors with specific messages and offers to yield higher profits and increased customer lifetime value.

“We are excited to welcome these four companies to our LIVEmail Partner Program,” said Scott Kauffman, chairman of Coremetrics.
