Use email marketing strategically to drive customer value.

Gain a greater understanding of email marketing and learn how to plan, create and evaluate effective, ROI-driven email marketing campaigns.

Email is not only one of the oldest online technologies, it’s also one of the most profitable – and with good reason. It’s one of the easiest mediums to test and optimise, and those collective learnings over the years have produced a highly versatile and effective marketing tool.

The downside is emails can easily be rejected by customers if they feel your emails are over-used and undervalued.
