List Services Corp Acquires Digital Agency - Launches Allora Media
30 Year Old Direct Marketing Firm Rounds Out Capabilities with Enhanced Digital Service Offerings
Tue 30 Aug 2011 – Bethel, CT - List Services Corporation (LSC) today announced the acquisition of 5-year-old web marketing firm Accession Media, LLC. The combination of the two firms will form a full-service digital marketing agency called Allora Media. Accession Media's employees and clients will all make the transition, and the combined firm is located in LSC's Bethel, CT offices.
"We have been looking to enhance our digital offering into the world of search marketing and web development because our clients are demanding it," said Joe McCluskey, President of LSC. "At the same time Accession Media was looking to grow its client base and enhance it's own offerings, so the timing was really perfect."
Allora Media will offer a unique suite of marketing services to medium and large businesses in both the business-to-business and business-to-consumer markets. These services include large-scale email marketing, content managed website design & development, paid and organic search engine marketing, and web analytics consulting.
“We are incredibly excited to join the LSC family and to have the opportunity to build our business far beyond what we could have on our own,” said Josh Katinger, President of Accession Media - who will continue to run Allora Media as Managing Director. “We’ve already seen how both Accession and LSC’s clients are reacting to the newly combined service set and it is incredibly encouraging.”
Allora Media’s new website can be found at www.AlloraMedia.com and contains more information about the suite of services offered. Additionally, Allora Media will make its trade show debut at the upcoming DMA 2011 Conference & Exhibition October 1-6th in Boston, MA.
