discussion Time To Expand the Role of Email Marketing

Is it time to rethink the role of email marketing? Beyond a few developments such as optimizing for mobile, the role of email marketers has changed surprisingly little in the last 20 years. Oh sure the tools have gotten better and more sophisticated, but what email marketers and teams do really hasn’t evolved much. So it had me thinking, is it time for email marketing to think bigger, to expand its scope and purview? To expand the thinking or perhaps repositioning of email marketing? [...] [more]

tactics The Challenges of Attribution in Email Marketing

Attribution is a problem as old as email, and it’s a huge topic – much too big to fully address in a simple blog article. And, sadly, I don’t have all the answers. In fact, I’m not sure that anyone does. But it is a topic that deserves much more attention. The more aware we are of it as a problem that holds us email marketers back from delivering the valuable emails that our consumers want, the more likely we will work individually and collectively toward an answer.

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 ESP Marketing Stacks - Dead, Dying or Vibrant?

One of the interesting developments in Martech has been the emergence of the ESP-centric marketing stack. Companies start off as email service providers then – because they have PII – start to say things like “wouldn’t it be great if we got customers to put ALL of their touchpoint efforts under one roof…let’s start gobbling up companies!” Companies then spend a lot of effort developing PowerPoints and videos that show a multi-touch, multi-channel customer marketing effort with customers so happy that [...] [more]

tactics How to Write an Effective Marketing Automation RFP

To respond or not to respond is always the question. Some marketing automation platforms have taken the position that they will not respond to RFPs during the sales process because it is not the best use of their time. However, I believe that RFPs can be highly informative and useful during the procurement process as long as they are written with intention. As RFP season begins to wrap up, I took stock in the different RFPs that crossed my desk. I reviewed countless RFPs this quarter, some good, some [...] [more]

 tactics Getting Email Marketing Credit Where Due: Attribution Ideas for Every Business

A few months back, I wrote about using data to determine the timing, content, and impact of your email marketing campaigns (See: 6 Steps to Putting Data to Work in Email). In the last few months, the element I find myself discussing most with colleagues and clients is the latter: What data can we use to attribute the impact of our hard working email marketing campaigns? When it comes to challenges in attribution, I’ve heard it all: [...] [more]

discussion When it comes to subject lines does length matter?

Length Does Matter – and longer is (almost) always better. While it is true that this is a complicated question with no simple answers what we see in the data leads us to the conclusion that longer tends to be better than shorter if you take meaning into account and there IS a causal relationship between SL length and performance. The only way to come to the conclusion that length has no impact on SL’s is to approach it like a machine or someone looking at a language using an alphabet they had never [...] [more]

Your customer data is a goldmine of information just waiting to be discovered.

 discussion 7 Inspiring Automation Emails [GFX]

Email automation is not the panacea for email marketing that many articles seem to suggest. The story goes “buy a leading edge automation platform” and your email marketing is no longer spam and strategy is improved double quick. I’ve never seen this to be true and have certainly spoken to too many email marketers who have found out it’s not true - the hard way. Email strategy is not created by buying some cool tech. But more about email automation strategy later. Let’s start with 7 examples of [...] [more]
