    Some interesting articles – definately good to see some new research results on relevancy and frequency so soon in 2010. As many companies digitial marketing spend is set to increase this year, learnings like this are especially relevant to ensure the increased budgets result in increased ROI and brand awareness rather than just an increase in the unsubscribe rate, a pitfall too easy to fall into for many companies.

    I also look forward to seeing how geolocation can be used to target and deliver messages to customers – definately one to watch out for in the next few months.
