Bots are having a profound effect on how the internet functions and may even outnumber people on some platforms like Twitter.

tactics When to Use Retina Images in Email Marketing

Because of the prevalence of high-DPI screens, marketers need to use retina images to ensure that their emails look crisp and not cheap. However, that doesn’t mean that every image in an email needs to be a retina image.

Chief among the challenges: a sustained assault on established business models driven by changing consumer behavior and the competitive might of e-commerce giant Amazon.

stats Key Email Deliverability Insights Into the Big 4 ISPs

I took a look at metrics across the big 4 ISPs (Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, and AOL) for the month of April 2016, and this totaled over half a billion emails in volume. This data included spam folder placement rates, read rates, and deleted rates. Utilizing panel data, as opposed to seed data, means that these metrics are pretty darn accurate. Spam folder placement varied widely across ISPs, with Hotmail being the most aggressive and AOL the least: [...] [more]

I wondered if there was much difference across different verticals in regards to deliverability.

discussion The Politics of Email Deliverability

The second example of the old way of doing things is email certification. Another metric that’s been around forever, but upon further review isn’t all it is cracked up to be. Certification purports to guarantee inbox delivery for “certified” clients, except it doesn’t. We have many examples of certified clients who are within the metric thresholds, seeing bulking at supposedly certified partner ISP’s. How Is That Possible? It’s possible because the ISP’s don’t whitelist customers anymore, period. Why [...] [more]
