Good morning, Marketers, and it’s still all about email, isn’t it?

Okay, that’s an exaggeration. Email isn’t the only marketing channel and email marketing isn’t the only form of marketing. But while cutting edge technologies like natural language processing, extended reality and predictive analytics can be fascinating, getting email right is for many marketing organizations their bread and butter.

What’s more, although the channel is well-established, it’s far from static. Ingenuity is required to stand out from the crowd. Strategic thinking is required to come up with better metrics than open rates. Boldness is required to experiment with dynamic email content, improved personalization and perhaps even BIMI.

Here you can see me talking about all things email with contributors Ryan Phelan and Kath Pay, and Jennifer Cannon, author of our updated Email Marketing Periodic Table. Ryan’s latest piece, about treating email with respect, kicks off this specially curated email marketing daily brief.
