mailboxAs our physical mailboxes gradually get a little less stuffed with direct marketing letters, two of the companies that have played a part in shifting that business to email, mobile and social media networks are coming together. XL Marketing, the NY-based direct and email marketing company co-founded by former CEO of Apple John Sculley, is buying Intela, a UK-based rival. The deal makes good use of the $70 million that XLM picked up in funding a little over a year ago, and will give it a crack at more international business, as well as a chance to sell through other data marketing services beyond email targeting to Intela’s current customer base.

Posted September 23, 2013 & filed under Marketing, Mobile Apps Feeds, Mobile News.

Apple - iOS 7In the last three years, the only times Apple has ever frozen its App Store rankings has been over the holidays. So it’s interesting to note that the company actually froze rankings for a total of eight hours on Friday, and things still aren’t quite back to normal in terms of the store’s usual behavior and ranking results.

For starters, some context: Chirpify launched in early 2012 to do something about the fact that social commerce — in spite of its own dubbing as “the next big thing” — has failed to live up to the hype.
