Our workshop last week was a roaring success!
Amongst other sessions ran by our experts on the day, attendees were treated to a master class on eMail Marketing, where they learnt the 4 key steps to improving your eMail campaigns. This included looking at an example email, and most of the audience were shocked by it’s associated scoring on the spam filters- see below why it wouldn’t actually get delivered, despite its short & innocuous content!
