Top tips to grease your email marketing wheels in 2020

Sometime back the COO of Facebook had blurted out some unfortunate things about email marketing – that emails are going away and that marketers will have to focus on teenagers of today to finalize the marketing strategies of tomorrow, and so on and so forth. Food for thought Emails are timeless, dependable, unsung moneymakers that have invariably found continued success and more customers for almost 50 years now. And still, there’s no stopping it. In fact, researches by  Radicati Group  found out that there were 3.9 million email users in 2019, and the market is expected to grow over to 4.3 million by the end of 2023.

How will ads in iOS push notifications change mobile marketing?

Last week, 9to5Mac pointed out that Apple had changed its App Store guidelines to allow push notifications to be used for marketing and advertising. This is a reversal of a policy that prohibited notifications for being used for direct marketing purposes. The relevant language reads as follows (emphasis added): Push Notifications must not be required for the app to function, and should not be used to send sensitive personal or confidential information. Push Notifications should not be used for promotions or direct marketing purposes unless customers have explicitly opted in to receive them via consent language displayed in your app’s UI, and you provide a method in your app for a user to opt out from receiving such messages. Abuse of these services may result in revocation of your privileges. App Store Review Guidelines 4.5.4 If users are spammed, winbacks will be very hard. Consumers must already consent to push notifications. The App Store guidelines don’t say anything about

A new study from Valiamil on DMARC usage and success found that spoof attempts drop to nearly zero “within a few months after that domain moves to DMARC enforcement.” Nearly 80% of inboxes worldwide and almost all U.S. email providers use machine learning to analyze DMARC policies of incoming email, generally enforcing whatever policy was laid out by the owner of the domain. Why we care: Thousands of domain owners haven’t configured enforcement policies, which dictates how many inboxes handle an email. If your DMARC policies are not being enforced, inboxes could be rejecting or quarantining your emails. Source: Valimail A CREATIVE CONNECTION. Adobe and Google Cloud have announced a joint effort to increase share accessibility to creative assets through email. The G Suite add-on will give

Create a healthy partnership with your internal teams using agile marketing

A lot of marketers find themselves in the position of being an order taker with their internal stakeholders who have lost sight of the value we bring to the table. With agile marketing, we can gain empowerment to do the right things with our teams while also building healthy partnerships with stakeholders. Set clear boundaries with stakeholders In traditional marketing, we’ve become prescriptive when it comes to requesting work. I’m amazed at how many times a well-educated, experienced marketer gets a work request with multiple pages of instructions and zero room for any thinking whatsoever. In agile marketing, we try to keep pretty clean lines between what stakeholders want and how it’s going to be delivered. Since marketers are closest to the ones doing the work, they need to own the process of how this will happen. Work should come to an agile marketing team with some information, which can include serving the customer or market as well as how this work will benefit the stakeho
