BlueTie partners with Constant Contact

Published on .

Rochester, N.Y.—BlueTie, a hosted e-mail and calendaring software company, announced Wednesday it has partnered with Constant Contact, an e-mail marketing company, to embed Constant Contact’s e-mail product through a drop-down menu in the BlueTie in-box. That feature enables small and midsize businesses, BlueTie’s customer base, to create and launch e-mail marketing campaigns directly from the e-mail in-box

BlueTie termed the partnership a “featuretisement,” a monetization model that integrates on-demand services into its e-mail interface.

“Our customers consider e-mail the most effective marketing tool to reach a wide audience, and it was a natural integration to make Constant Contact available to them through the BlueTie application,” said David Koretz, president-CEO of BlueTie.

BlueTie sealed partnership deals with travel site, Mapquest and Orbitz in April. It is currently negotiating partnership agreements with blog publishing, Internet telephony and Web conferencing companies.
