Creativematch, founded in 1996, is also a search engine for those working in the design and related sectors, where members can publish news and vacancies content for the UK creative industry. The partnership is to commence in May 2005 and will be annually reviewed.
WebtraffIQ will be making web analytics products and services available for Creativematch and that of its members, consisting of creatives, design agencies and digital marketers, but also includes public relations officers, illustrators and printers.
Mark Lesbirel, Managing Director of Creativematch explains, “Providing third party confirmation of our own statistics in a more usable format, and an association with a well-known and respected visitor tracking and reporting provider is essential in building our brand.”
Marcos Richardson, European Director at WebtraffIQ comments, “The Creativematch partnership gives WebtraffIQ another opportunity to demonstrate how powerful its reporting products are due to the range of intricate and sophisticated levels of reporting that will be required.“
This new partnership allows WebtraffIQ to build relationships more directly with design, digital marketers and user-centred design specialists. WebtraffIQ already serves many in the creative industry globally.
“The association will also provide wider opportunities, for example providing simple and easy to use visitor and tracking services to our user base and the soon to be launched Flair viral – a monthly pier judged competition, in association with WebtraffIQ, designed to highlight the best viral campaigns”, adds Lesbirel.
“In addition to the traditional and digital design communities we will also be monitoring a range of key performance indicators (KPIs) for Creativematch’s off and online marketing, advertising, the new e-commerce shop, searchable directory, email marketing services, daily news and recruitment services of the portal,” concludes Richardson.
