Sendible.com Revamps Web Site to Improve Access

London-based startup Sendible.com has revamped its Web site, making social media, email and SMS marketing 'accessible to just about everyone,' company officials said.
Sendible, according to company officials, 'integrates with all the popular social networks and allows users to manage and track their posts on Twitter, Facebook (News - Alert) Fan Pages, Facebook Groups, LinkedIn, Flickr and many more.'
'Sendible makes it easy for companies and individuals to manage their social media presence by allowing scheduling of posts, automated posting via RSS as well as posting via email,' company officials add.
In mid-2008 Rudy posted a comment on a TMC (News - Alert) blog, noting that, 'I've just started placing ads at http://www.sendible.com. It allows users to send free sms messages as well as emails and social network messages. Advertisers can then embed ads in these messages by matching on keywords and also allows for targeted advertising! Works great!'
So there you go – a user recommendation.
Every social media message that is posted from Sendible is tracked, and the service reports on various statistics, including the number of likes, shares, views, comments and clicks.
Sendible is also an e-mail marketing tool, allowing users to send out e-mail newsletters, manage their contacts and even capture contacts from their Web site with the use of Sendible's newsletter signup widget: 'All emails that are sent from the Sendible platform are tracked and measured,' company officials explain, adding that Sendible 'tracks the number of opens, unsubscribes, forwards and shares.'
Industry observer Simon Mackie wrote that Sendible 'has recently relaunched with some great new features that should prove very useful for social media marketers.'
Sendible 'lets you schedule and send messages to a myriad of services, including Twitter, Facebook, Blogger, Plurk, Tumblr, LinkedIn, Brightkite and a host of others,' he noted.
Users can even create their own blogs hosted on Sendible's platform. 'Sendiblogs' are 'essentially microblogs,' company officials said, 'allowing brands, companies and individuals to immediately create an online presence.'David Sims is a contributing editor for TMCnet.
