Email Marketing: The Gift That Keeps on Giving to Marketers

We can all agree that email marketing is one of, if not the most effective digital marketing tactics. The problem is that most marketers and organizations have abused the channel; leading to depressed open, clickthrough, and post conversation metrics, as well as a love/hate relationship with all emails. To solve this problem, we need to rethink how we connect with people via their inboxes, radically reduce the propensity of sending campaigns simply because our organizations have something to announce, and expand the KPIs that dictate success. Join this workshop to discuss these issues, and walk away with a plan on how to make email great again.

At the end of this session, you’ll be able to:

-Understand the latest trends and stats on email marketing
-Develop short and long-term communications plans with subscribers
-Perform effective email audits
-Build effective email workflows with your organization
-Leverage modern web tools to create kickass emails
-Determine the email metrics that matter
-Discover future email opportunities

If you missed Michael Barber’s half-day Digital Summit KC session on email marketing, now’s your chance to catch up on the good stuff. Michael Barber is the Senior Vice President, Chief Creative Officer at Godfrey. His work has been featured in The New York TimesThe Wall Street Journal, and Forbes. This work has been awarded numerous industry awards, but more importantly has driven successes, including the most cost effective and cost-efficient campaign in the history of a Fortune 500 company, a 160x return on ad spend, and 50 million earned media impressions within the first month of a new product launch.


Learning Tracks for B2B, B2C, and Everyone Inbetween

Our agenda will include dedicated learning tracks for B2B and B2C marketers, plus content dedicated to email marketing, marketing automation, customer experience stories, and two special keynote speakers. The full agenda will be announced in June.
