About Us

At Keono, each member of our diverse executive team brings more than 20 years of multi-channel internet advertising expertise across email, social and direct-mail channels. We are unsurpassed in digital marketing, content development and direct marketing. We instill a culture of client service excellence and measure our success based on your success. We strive to exceed your expectations on every campaign.

Here's how it's done:

 

Superior Data 

First, Keono customers receive access to the industry’s most trustworthy, robust data. We stake our reputation on it. Thousands of companies can provide you with reams of old email addresses, but you want more than that. You want verified, hygiened, tested data. And that’s what Keono continually cultivates and can furnish to you. It’s why the world’s best-known brands, such as Toyota, AT&T, Lexus, 24 Hour Fitness, BMW, Metlife and WalMart (to name a few) use us with confidence. (See a more complete client list here.) 

 

Outstanding Services and Unique Capabilities

Second, our delivery and service are refined, tried and true. We were founded on a simple principle: be the best in email marketing. Keono match rates are typically between 12 to 20 percent and our email addresses go through a rigorous hygiene and verification process before use. Data can be exported to advertisers for their analytical needs. Keono completes all matching, processing, reporting and delivery.

In addition, we have a powerful tool in our arsenal of innovative digital services to boost your marketing efforts: Match & Deploy. We can accurately connect email addresses to corresponding postal addresses – data that gives you more marketing options and punch. Enhanced outreach leads to more customers.

Our team will craft a campaign quickly—a campaign accurately tailored to your needs to help you meet and exceed your ROI. This level of quality service accounts for our explosive growth – nearly 1,000 percent in three short years.

And there is more … Keono is now partnered with the global leader in compliance services, brand protection and marketing intelligence.  We now are employing LashBack’s patented system to ensure email marketing compliance, provide resolution opportunities and gather key intelligence. 

 

 

“Running a digital media advertising agency is complex and challenging. Let's face it: Delivering ads into the inbox is not easy. At Keono, we do real marketing. No one is better at sending targeted ads to the right audience, at the right time, into the inboxes of mobile, tablet and desktop devices. Our talented team consistently delivers great service and exceeds the ROI needs of our advertisers.”

- President & CEO, Michael Medema

Outstanding Reputation 

Third, we have a team seasoned by years in the business. In a relatively new industry, that can be hard to find. Our people have a depth of understanding that can significantly propel your marketing and customer acquisition efforts. We understand the complex diversity of a customer base, the analytics, the demographics – how a 60-year-old grandmother makes different buying decision than a 25-year-old single man. Keono also knows the importance of client collaboration, inbox reputation, and playing by the rules.  We’re the industry’s trendsetter in best practices and standards.

We have had an amazing journey to get where we are today. Your dedicated team at Keono consists of seasoned digital marketing professionals with unmatched expertise. They include digital account managers, senior email delivery analysts and digital sales professionals.
