Marketing Destinations & Companies

Modern Retail has worked with a variety of marketplaces, marketing companies and online destinations over the years.  Below are just a few of these companies we've worked with and how you might use them to improve your online sales.

Email Marketing

Email Marketing is arguably still the best online marketing that's available to you and your store.  While Modern Retail has their own email marketing tool available to you free of charge, sometimes you need a more powerful and dedicated email service.  Modern Retail has worked with a lot of 3rd party email marketing companies including:  MailChimp, ExactTarget, Constant Contact and VerticalResponse.

If you need help getting people to sign up to your mailing list, you might consider using a 3rd party service like PadiAct.  PadiAct will help you target when and where the email signup form on your website is displayed to the visitor.
