New York, June 2, 2008 – Crain’s BtoB Magazine and The Nielsen Company’s SRDS today announced the launch of a direct marketing list search tool designed for btob marketers, available through www.btobonline.com. The new search tool, BtoB’s Direct Marketing List Search, is free to BtoB subscribers and delivers access to SRDS’s continuously updated database of more than 20,000 btob datacards.
BtoB Magazine is the leading provider of business-to-business marketing news, analysis and insight, and SRDS is the leading provider of list data and media rates to direct marketers and list brokers. Their partnership delivers access to SRDS’s complete list database with unique search functionality, via an established editorial channel, BtoB Magazine.
“Direct Marketing continues to be an integral part of the btob marketer’s media mix, and more than 75% of our audience are responsible for direct marketing activities for their company,” said Bob Felsenthal, Publisher, BtoB Magazine. “We want to help our users understand and research the many choices available in list rental. Providing access to SRDS data does just that.”
“For more than 35 years, SRDS has been the tool of choice for list brokers and direct marketing
agencies. This relationship with BtoB Magazine is a simple, integrated way to offer outstanding list data and targeted search to btob marketers already engaged in the robust content of BtoB
Magazine,” said Steve Davis, VP/Group Publisher, SRDS. “SRDS’s list manager and owner clients also benefit from the ‘long-tail’ impact of this initiative, as it builds awareness of their lists among marketers who conduct list research only occasionally.”
