In the spirit of better collaboration between you and your email marketing team, I want to share with you four things regarding email marketing that you need to know. I think you already are a swell marketer, but there are some things that stand in the way of you working at peak efficiency with your email team. If you approach this with an open mind, good things will surely come as a result! The similarities between direct mail and email end at the word "mail"

Let's face it: If you have smart data but no plan for fusing that insight into your communications, then the data isn't really doing you any good. Personalization used to mean "Dear [FirstName]." Simply put, true personalization involves using relevant data about the customer to address their needs, both expressed and implicit. 

If you can't create an integrated marketing plan, what can you do? You need to prepare for a successful integrated digital marketing program. Being prepared means recognizing repeat customers and being ready to welcome prospects. Doing so demonstrates that you respect their time and value their business.
