Lucini&Lucini Communications Group for email marketing and lead generation, has announced the launch of Video ADSender, the first-of-its products in the sphere of email marketing, for its India client base. Video ADSender, built on cloud-based email acquisition and delivery architecture, is a sophisticated web-based platform that allows marketers to fully optimize the impact of their email marketing campaigns.
Created and optimized by Lucini&Lucini’s in-house technology team, Video ADSender delivers video embedded email messages and allows advertisers to garner more customer attention, increase consumer engagement and drive-up the conversion rates thus multiplying sales and ROI.
As an embedded video platform, Video ADSender allows advertisers to share videos of any size with their target consumers without occupying any additional space in their mailbox or impacting the speed of delivery and download. Users can play and watch videos, even when on the go irrespective of the device, operating system and email services they rely upon. The platform also allows a user to go directly to the landing page of the video if they so desire.
Designed on sophisticated architecture, Video ADSender operates in real-time to instantly detect and identify the email client at the user’s end, as soon as a message is opened. Real-time report and analysis of the type of device and the client’s operating system guarantees correct display of the video content, thus ensuring higher levels of user engagement. The platform has an added capability of effectively identifying bandwidth concerns and other email constraints enabling Video ADSender to play GIF as a back-up without any initiation from the user.

In addition to video content, Lucini&Lucini has worked and developed behavioural targeting technology over the last 10 years, as advertisers today are increasingly keen to target consumers more sensitive to specific content.
