 antispam Massive Email Bombs Target .Gov Addresses

When Spamhaus lists a swath of Internet address space as a source of junk email, ISPs usually stop routing email for organizations within those chunks of addresses.

On Monday, those ESPs soon began hearing from their clients who were having trouble getting their marketing emails delivered. [...] [more]

tactics Triggered Email Secrets Every Sender Should Know [GFX]

I have a secret: a few days ago, my lunch pretty much consisted of a stop at a hip ice cream shop to enjoy a cone with a scoop of my favorite flavor: “Secret Breakfast,” which mixes bourbon-flavored caramel and corn flakes in a sweet cream base. First of all, yum. But it also reminded me how important creativity and surprise can be as marketing tools. Every scoop shop offers bread-and-butter flavors like chocolate and vanilla, but it’s the other buzz-worthy varieties that define their brands. (And [...] [more]

discussion Introducing EmaiLO, a new email marketing rating system

Long before I ever analyzed a single line of data for Experian or one of our clients, I was a sports fan. As a lifelong nerd, it just makes a certain kind of sense that my fandom is largely driven by stats. Winning percentage, passer rating, points per game – these were my beacons, the foundations to any great argument. As I grew older, my love for stats grew from basic to more advanced analysis. Sabermetrics, expectation models, and new methods for true evaluation were my muses, revealing deeper, [...] [more]
