You may have noticed that we have a drip program on inbound marketing that you can sign up on our site (look for the green slide in form). The results of that automated email marketing campaign are incredible – over 3,000 subscribers have signed up with very, very few unsubscribes. And we never even converted the emails to a beautiful HTML email yet (it’s on the list of things to do). Automated email is definitely a direction that we want to keep going in. We won’t ever abandon our daily and weekly marketing newsletter, but having more personalized choices for our readers to dive in on a specific topic is a great direction we want to explore further.
Email marketing is the master of evolution. Where other out-dated marketing methods get left behind, email changes, adjusts, and powers on through. Last year, email responsiveness was a really big deal. Users were accessing the internet remotely, and to remain relevant email marketing had to become responsive across any and all devices. Emails should now not only be responsive, they should be targeted, timely, and personalised. Adi Toal, Instiller
