I’ve just read a report, dated 9 March, 2021, and rather intriguingly entitled ‘New Shopping Behaviours in Post-Pandemic UK’. You’ve probably guessed it’s predictive.

Post Brexit Changes To Email Marketing?

Having downtime due to lockdown, I did my annual clear-out of emails and documents I had saved over the past three years.

Inform Your Subscribers During Lockdown

Over the last couple of days, I’ve received a number of marketing emails offering advice and suggestions for help during the lockdown in England. Some appeared hurried and most were generic. I can see the, rather obvious, intent of such offers as helpfulness brings its own reward. By being constructive and offering good advice they … READ MORE »
