Most of our users know Sphere as the company that makes the Related Content Widget. It’s taken on it’s own momentum, and not unlike a band known for a hit song, we have a lot of other interesting non-widget partnerships in place we’d love to share with you.
As an example, a few months ago we quietly integrated Sphere search results into SmartBrief, the leading publisher of co-branded, customized e-mail newsletters in partnership with leading trade associations, professional societies and corporations. SmartBrief newsletters reach more than 1 million professionals in 18 industries every day, keeping their users informed with essential industry news and more. This is a great resource. One of our Advisers, Scott Kurnit, told me early on that SmartBrief is his go-to resource every day to track what is happening in industries of interest. That’s a nice compliment coming from a guy who understands the litany options available. To see Sphere in action on their site, just do a keyword search on a topic like iPhone.
Anyone can sign up for SmartBrief, just click here and choose from a broad range of topics such as IAB (Internet Advertising Bureau), Food Service, Technology, Media & Entertainment, etc.. Thanks to Rick Stamberger and Chris McNeilly for partnering with Sphere.
