discussion Vendors, you just suck at Demos and Web Meetings!

Sometimes the best way to share ideas is through dark humor, I expect this will hit a nerve with different people in different ways. Some might say, “OMG- YES”, some may say “WTH? - what are you talking about”, yet the reality is with all the vendor choices and aggressive sales teams and fierce competition you can often get a degradation in quality of presentations, demo’s and meetings in general. Having just been involved in a few RFP processes, I find myself getting more and more agitated at how [...] [more]

discussion How Gmail Happened: The Inside Story of Its Launch 10 Years Ago

If you wanted to pick a single date to mark the beginning of the modern era of the web, you could do a lot worse than choosing Thursday, April 1, 2004, the day Gmail launched. Scuttlebutt that Google was about to offer a free email service had leaked out the day before: Here’s John Markoff of the New York Times reporting on it at the time. But the idea of the search kingpin doing email was still startling, and the alleged storage capacity of 1GB—500 times what Microsoft’s Hotmail offered—seemed [...] [more]

discussion How to Program Your Job

In 2016, an anonymous confession appeared on Reddit: “From around six years ago up until now, I have done nothing at work.” As far as office confessions go, that might seem pretty tepid. But this coder, posting as FiletOFish1066, said he worked for a well-known tech company, and he really meant nothing. He wrote that within eight months of arriving on the quality-assurance job, he had fully automated his entire workload. “I am not joking. For 40 hours each week, I go to work, play League of Legends [...] [more]

discussion Mailchimp Has a New Look

We’ve updated our logo, wordmark, typeface, colors, and imagery like photography and illustrations. We’ve also evolved from “MailChimp” to “Mailchimp” with a lowercase c. Our name began as a playful metaphor: a chimp who delivers your mail. These days we do so much more than that, and our name stands for more than its component parts. Aside from new colors and illustrations, everything inside our customers’ Mailchimp accounts will be largely the same. We’ve made a few changes to our website that make [...] [more]

discussion Adobe & Marketo: 1+1 = 0.5 (sometimes)

Congratulations to Adobe for its ~$4.8bn purchase of Marketo - big news in the marketing automation space. Marketo was trading for about $1.8bn when Vista Private equity took it private, only to flip it for >2.5x that value just a few years later. Adobe has impressively continued to build out quality assets in its portfolio – Omniture, Day Software (now Adobe AEM), Neolane (now Adobe Campaign), TubeMogul and most recently Magento. All of these acquisitions frame Adobe as the clear leader in the [...] [more]

discussion Marketoonist: Marketing Automation

Brands are increasingly adopting marketing automation, with email marketing as the most common application. Marketing automation has great potential to help deliver personalized useful messages to an audience that wants them. Yet a recent Econsultancy study found that 37% of brands say their marketing automation efforts are not successful. I wonder how much of the failure rate relates to how the tool is frequently used.

discussion How Trello’s One-Man Email Team Manages to Make Email Magic

What did you learn from running tests? One of the older newsletters had this huge graphic on the top. And it was this thing where one of our marketing team members would spend like an hour just making this graphic every week. We ran a test, and in a version we sent that didn’t include it, the conversion rate was close to 5% higher. So, it saves her a couple hours a week and helped us focus on the content side. We do a lot of things like that?—?CTA testing, etc. [...] [more]

discussion Mailchimp rebrands as an anti-tech company

The marketing company Mailchimp, which today is announcing a complete rebrand, could have easily given up the quirkiness that defined its branding as a young company the way many other giants have. Instead, with the help of branding agency Collins, Mailchimp is doubling down. It’s keeping its logo-cum-mascot Freddie the Chimp, for starters, and using an analog typeface from the 1920s as its new typeface, and illustrating its new brand with a series of almost childlike drawings that look unpolished [...] [more]
