Email marketing is the bread and butter of most marketing strategies, but creating and running email campaigns continues to be difficult to execute. As a result, many brands feel they’re not doing what they need, and spend 8 hours a day working to just achieve the basics. In this talk we’ll explore the challenges of the email process, and how revolutionising how email teams work enables sending better email, quicker and at a larger scale – ultimately not only improving ROI but also team success.
Matt will discuss how to use real-time content in email to stand out of the inbox. You will discover how to achieve a greater level of personalisation, at scale, and how this leads to increased conversions and ultimately, revenue.
The DMA publishes 3 major pieces of email research each year: what the consumer thinks about email marketing; what the Marketer thinks about email marketing and what the data *actually* tells us about email marketing. But which – if any - of these are true and can apparent contradictions in one actually lead us to deeper truths in another?
Email marketing continues to be the bedrock of marketing and shows no signs of slowing down. There are many exciting developments from AI, intelligent personalisation and sophisticated automation but one area is still lacking in email marketing, and that's the definition of a strategy.
So how can your business define a strategy with the future in mind with data protection regulations tightening and consumers losing trust in marketing? I'll be highlighting the future trends in both email marketing and consumer behaviour alongside practical steps you can implement to create a robust email strategy that will stand your business in good stead for the future!

And we'll look at what we know about ePrivacy and the specific changes to marketing permission through email, SMS and one-to-one messaging
