JACQUELINE'S JOURNAL

 Response This Week will take a one-week hiatus next week. We will return with a new issue on January 6, 2010. The entire Response team wishes you happy holidays and all the best in 2010!

 Hipcricket – mobile marketing agency for clients such as Nestle, HBO and Arby’s – has doubled its total campaign count in the past 12 months and has surpassed 50,000. Through this momentum, Hipcricket has also seen its clients build re-marketable databases of opted-in mobile subscribers, while driving new customers into their stores or adding audience counts to media properties.

 CoreMedia Systems Inc. today announced it is the first company to electronically integrate commercial post-log data for DISH Network. Before the integration, users of the CoreDirect product received post-log data — information showing when and where an advertiser’s commercials aired on DISH Network — via e-mail or fax, and then had to manually input the data into CoreDirect. 

 TV Genius announces that ITV, the United Kingdom’s largest public service commercial broadcaster, has selected Content Discovery Platform to power the personalized recommendation feature of the new ITV Player app for Facebook. The app will promote Christmas and New Year’s scheduling, as well as into 2010, through recommendations of content available via the ITV Player online catch-up service, as well as remind users of relevant upcoming shows.

 Undertone Networks, an online advertising network, announces it experienced a year of strong growth through solid revenue gains and its best fiscal quarter to date. The company also boasted 90-percent customer satisfaction on its latest customer survey.  In 2009, Undertone also celebrated the one-year anniversary of its Quality Guarantee and the launch of U360 AudiencePlus, which enables publishers to leverage the Undertone network to drive additional revenue from their advertisers.

 Northern Lights Direct Response welcomes two new staff members to serve its growing DR online client base – Nick Lee is named online manager and Danielle Black is named project manager, online.
