NEW YORK, NY, April 22, 2009 – 1to1® Media, the independent publishing division of Peppers & Rogers Group, was honored by min as one of 14 consumer and b2b publishing titles at the first annual Most Engaged Media Brands Awards luncheon. The winners were selected from hundreds of entries and are designed to recognize and salute the exceptional relationships magazines have with their audiences.

min, the trusted source on the consumer and b2b magazine business, cited 1to1 Media's numerous customer-focused initiatives that create award-winning engagement including: 1to1 Media's hosted dinners and roundtables where professionals share successful strategies and communicate their own needs to editors; 1to1 Media's editorial advisory board and "1to1 Insiders" group that advises the brand on its design and content; the 1to1 editors' efforts in social media that they preach to readers; and the development of an "Engagement Index" that makes engagement a quantifiable metric.
"When your audience consists of marketers, customer relationship managers and customer support leaders, you'd better be ready to lead not just in word but by example. 1to1 Media is not only about the art of customer relationship building; it is an object lesson as well. Through word and deed, 1to1 exemplifies the basic tenets of reader engagement—keep the lines of communication open and varied," said Steve Smith, min's Digital Media Editor.
"Our mission is to help companies drive short-term results and long-term value by engaging customers and building valuable relationships. It's gratifying to be recognized for applying the strategies and best practices in our business that we advocate to readers. We're especially honored to be recognized in this group of magazines." said Michael Dandrea, Group Publisher.
Peppers & Rogers Group's founding partner Martha Rogers added, "At Peppers & Rogers Group, we believe that customers are a company's most valuable asset. Our 1to1 Media division clearly embraces that precept and lives the strategy every day."
