Helping companies manage and activate audiences for over 30 years

The most successful media companies deploy audience intelligence across entire organizations to provide insight and catalyze innovation. We believe that understanding audience behavior, content engagement and event participation is the intellectual foundation for driving better decisions about existing product investment and new product launches.

Omeda was founded in Chicago by The Obermans, a family of trade publishers who understood the value of utilizing technology to properly segment and target their subscriber base. Over the years, as technology advanced and customer needs evolved, our core capabilities expanded to encompass print, email and web-based audience solutions. Along the way, we have invested in modern infrastructure to capitalize on strong processing power and to maintain the most sophisticated data matching capabilities. Through our commitment to the media and publishing industry, we remain privately-owned and relationship-focused, remembering that we only succeed when our clients thrive in these rapidly changing times.

Our role as a partner to media companies transcends the old circulation models and truly modernizes the process of accumulating and segmenting an audience.

Significantly more conversions with a personalization iFrame

In order to generate more newsletter sign-ups, Babcox Media implemented a personalization modal to link to their subscription form. Initially, they utilized a button which directed to a full subscription form. The form yielded about 158 conversions over 2 months. After running this first modal campaign, the team switched to an iframe personalization modal to test if it would yield stronger results. The iframe form within the modal collected the subscriber’s first name, last name, email, state and country. Within 3 months, they have converted over 8500 subscribers to their newsletters.
