Indulgent Email Marketing

I bought myself a present a couple of weeks ago via an email marketing offer. I am now the proud owner of a 3-terrabite, USB-3 (yes, I’m a bit of a nerd), external hard-drive complete with back-up software. It is not the most exciting item, but I am happy with it. The product had 5-star … READ MORE »

Price Isn’t Everything

Customer Relationship Marketing (CRM) starts from the premise that price is not the sole reason a customer will pick one company over another. Given the rush to cut costs to the bone and the perceived need for dramatic offers in every email marketing campaign, this tends to go against accepted wisdom. But just run with … READ MORE »

If you have a spike in your unsubscribe rate, one that is not explained by your email marketing software, then it is time to be concerned.

Look and Learn

I have a secret vice. I view YouTube more than I should. If I’m struggling for words, or, as in this case, looking for subject matter for an article, a brief dalliance on the website, or indeed one not so brief, is almost like a break from the computer. I justify this because there are … READ MORE »

Time Out

We have mentioned the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) Guidance on here before, and will do so again. It contains fundamental changes for bulk email marketing and the most important of these is how the ICO will view consent in future.
