Keynote: Putting Email At the Big Media Table

What if marketers and media buyers regarded email as a part of the media mix, as an owned media channel whose 100% share of voice and CPAs are compared with your social media and other paid/owned assets. That is how Cadbury/Mondelez reframed the email channel throughout its organization and with its media agencies. At the same time the brands retooled the email database to gather a much wider range of consumer behaviors so that Mondelez aspires to know that chocolate lover better than anyone else in the candy chain.
