  • Embody Spirit Of Labor Day & Celebrate Your Email Accomplishments  in Email Insider on 08/28/2014

    Labor Day is right around the corner -- a holiday whose origins hark back to the Industrial Revolution of the late 1800s. This was a time when labor unions grew in popularity and leveraged their power to protest the unsafe working conditions and low wages forced upon many workers. At the time, President Grover Cleveland had a big challenge to address these issues. After failing to break up a railroad strike in 1894, he created Labor Day as a national holiday to officially celebrate the contributions and achievements of American workers. Thankfully, labor conditions have improved significantly since then. To embody the spirit of Labor Day, I encourage you to look back at what has changed in your email marketing and celebrate the accomplishments of your digital team and programs.

  • You've Got (Too Much) Mail in Email Insider on 05/22/2014

    Recently I asked someone, what would cause you to unsubscribe from your favorite brand's email? His response: receiving too many messages. While that isn't a surprising answer, it was interesting to note that he actually WAS interested in the content, but it came too frequently for his liking. It's important that messaging meets consumer expectations of frequency. Check out these tips to stave off that unsubscribe and keep consumers engaged with your messages.

  • How To Prospect The Gold Mine Of Transactional Messaging  in Email Insider on 02/27/2014

    Email marketers are so focused on explicitly revenue-generating campaigns that we often forget about the little guys: program enrollment confirmations, lost PIN requests, invoices, account update notifications and the good ol' password reset. But transactional messages such as these are some of the most highly opened and read messages -- and as such, have huge potential to drive incremental revenue with the inclusion of promotional messaging. As we position ourselves for a profitable 2014, it's time to give our transactional emails a once-over.
