Optimizely Announces Double-Digit Growth of Welcome Following Acquisition
Platform has experienced year-over-year growth of over 60% as joint customers capitalize on value of combined solution
NEW YORK – August 30, 2022 – Optimizely, the leading digital experience platform (DXP) provider, today announced strong growth of Welcome, its content marketing platform (CMP) that brings teams together on a single solution to ideate, collaborate on assets, and execute campaigns, following its acquisition last year.
In the eight months since the acquisition, the Welcome business has seen consistent quarter-over-quarter growth, resulting in year-over-year growth of over 60%. To date, 19 Optimizely customers including AJ Produkter, Hunter Engineering and Siteimprove, have successfully onboarded the Welcome CMP and Digital Asset Management (DAM), which are now integrated.
“Marketers love Welcome. The market feedback validates our vision of empowering marketers to plan, create, deliver, and optimize campaigns and content through a single, end-to-end solution,” said Alex Atzberger, CEO of Optimizely. “There is no great customer experience without a great marketer experience. We couldn’t be prouder of the momentum Welcome has garnered to date and look forward to continuing to drive our mission to improve the marketer experience and unlock digital potential for organizations across the globe.”
Optimizely (Welcome) has been recognized as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Content Marketing Platforms for five consecutive years. Gartner evaluated eight vendors across Critical Capabilities and Optimizely (Welcome) ranked 1 in all use cases for the fifth year in a row. Its highest scoring use case (4.56 out of 5) was for complex, distributed content marketing teams due to its strength in content performance analytics.
“As a technology partner and user of Optimizely Content Management (CMS) the addition of Welcome (CMP) has made it easier than ever for our globally based marketing team to plan and collaborate on global campaigns as well as optimize content across all digital experience channels,” said Kevin Bobowski, Chief Marketing Officer, Siteimprove. “With Welcome and Optimizely’s CMS integrated with Siteimprove Prepublish, we will have a single source of truth for all our campaigns.
