Email marketing technology company Campaign Monitor announces a vertical e-mail solution for publishers that combines several e-mail marketing solutions. Kraig Swensrud, CMO at Campaign Monitor, says it helps publishers develop and engage e-mail audiences to drive traffic and advertising revenue. “For publishers, it’s all about content and often that content is long-form and constantly changing,” he says.

The Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) says the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) privacy proposals “threaten to hamper the data-driven growth of the internet economy.” The proposed regulations would prohibit broadband providers from using data about consumers’ web activity for ad-targeting purposes without their opt-in consent.
