@jebbdykstra99 Agreed. It'll be interesting to see if OwnersListen.com becomes one of those companies that can cultivate a niche in the value chain. Seems like they have a strong value proposition to merchants.

As a not too techy manager of a couple ecommerce business, we found that email is our lifeblood and responsible for a majority of our purchases. Thank you Michael for sharing other new companies who can help us improve our conversion rates.
In the spirit of celebrating other innovators in this space, I'll share that we've been using Sendicate.net for all our bulk delivery -- they've been fantastic because we have a lot of ideas on new content to add into email messages, but it was very difficult to implement if updates required programming resources. But with Sendicate, we are now able to add custom content on the fly without requiring any assistance from our programmers.
Disclosure: I have absolutely no financial incentives here, just a loyal customer who thought it'd be nice to invest the 3 minutes to share my experiences. Looking forward to discovering more innovators with email.

@JasonGoldberg Much love, and congrats on making fab ubiquitous. some people smile from ear to ear. fab smiles from the baltic sea to the pacific ocean.
That said, pivot definitely has taken on more connotations than simply a dance step. you would have to agree with me that a word may evolve meanings. otherwise, pivot would still simply mean penis (12th century france).

@cordcutterguide Agreed. But all ideas in the tv/entertainment MVPD space that are built on top of the existing infrastructure are ripe for disruption as soon as the industry (reluctantly) switches over to a la carte programming.
A single household paying for hundreds of channels they don't watch is the entertainment equivalent to gavage. When will there be a pioneer who enables a la carte programming, so there's a legit and transparent and FUNCTIONING marketplace TV programming. We must align incentives and reward the producers of quality TV programming.
