At rasa.io, one of our seven core values is to Celebrate Success: we celebrate our accomplishments and the steps that lead to those accomplishments. And just what does success mean to us at rasa.io? Our core purpose is To Better Inform The World, and that’s just what we try to do, every day.

rasa.io & Biz New Orleans

In the spirit of celebrating success and better informing the world, we are excited to publish a customer case study demonstrating the success of one of our earlier newsbrief partners, a New Orleans favorite: Biz New Orleans. The publisher, a premier producer of original New Orleans business, politics, and entertainment news, came to rasa.io because they wanted to increase subscriber engagement by way of supplementing their own content with relevant, aggregated, daily local and national news.

The rasa.io Artificial Intelligence engine is able to analyze Biz New Orleans subscriber inputs and leverage deep learning in order to deliver daily newsbrief email outputs individualized to each reader. What that AI technology then cultivates is increased engagement with the Biz New Orleans community. Subscribers are also able to associate the Biz New Orleans brand with additional, authoritative news content.

From Todd Matherne of Biz New Orleans

And just how impactful are these increases in engagement? That’s where rasa.io Celebrating Success comes in!

Todd Matherne, CEO of Renaissance Publishing and Head of Biz New Orleans said in best: “rasa.io has been able to develop a newsbrief that sees much higher than average open and click through rates. With a weekly unique open rate of 47% and a weekly click through rate of close to 10%, we are able to easily attract advertisers, as well as drive traffic to our website, by featuring our own content amongst relevant daily, national and New Orleans business news. We strive to deliver content our readers want and rasa.io has allowed us to increase our depth of content with AI technology. We are very excited about the results of this partnership. We look forward to continuing to grow our ad revenue and increase our content visibility with rasa.io.”

Measured success to celebrate

While the most significant impact of the implementation of the rasa.io newsbrief has been the increased engagement of the Biz New Orleans subscribership, that is not the only Biz New Orleans success we can celebrate. The “Morning Biz,” as the daily email newsbrief is named, has benefitted the publisher in other ways as well.

For one, the newsbrief is yet another means of driving traffic to the bizneworleans.com website. The daily newsbrief features their content amongst the other informative and relevant articles, and as a result, Biz New Orleans content is the top 3 clicked on source amongst the 68 news outlets included in the newsbrief.

Biz New Orleans is also able to attract advertisers by promoting those 47% open rates and 10% click through rates Matherne mentioned above. What’s more, is that when the AI is at work, (that is, when we know more about a given user’s interests), open and click through rates are even higher. Because these engagement rates far exceed typical email engagement rates, the publisher can leverage this weekly delivery data to bring in promotional dollars.
