Everybody loves a bit of unconscious irony. A company called Missguided, which sells clothing and accessories for women, ran a marketing campaign on London Underground and train platforms.

Solving The Problems Of Your Subscribers

You’ve got your own problems. Haven’t we all? You, no doubt, want to concentrate on finding your own solutions rather than getting bogged down with someone else’s concerns.

What To Include In End Of Lockdown Email

If you have an inbox, it will come as no shock when I tell you that mine is creaking under the weight of Covid-19 related emails. I don’t want or need to be asked ‘How are you?’ any more. I can understand that companies want to appear as if they are concerned, or doing their … READ MORE »

There’s A New Normal For Email Marketing 

Something rather unusual has happened to neighbours of mine, probably unique in a 50-mile radius. They’ve had a new car delivered. “One of the last before lockdown,” I was told, from a distance of some four metres. It’s one of only 871 private vehicles registered in April according to The Society of Motor Manufacturers, their … READ MORE »

How To Plan For Email Marketing Post Lockdown

First the good news: none of your competitors know what’s going to happen to email marketing post lockdown. They are as in the dark as anyone. The government refuse to predict and most of their pronouncements are historical; interesting but not really what we want to hear. A post lockdown marketing plan is probably under … READ MORE »

How To Comply With ICO Working From Home

It might be fair to say that many email marketing companies view the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) with a degree of trepidation.
