Email marketing for mobile devices

I reviewed a couple of articles I’d written two or so years ago on the subject of how mobile devices are changing email marketing and I was surprised to find words I hardly use nowadays, such as Blackberry. Obviously, many people still prefer them but they are becoming niche. It shows how quickly technology develops … READ MORE »

Email marketing list attacked by ransomware

Recently we went through ways you can protect yourself from cyber attacks, particularly with regards to ransomware. There is a well known, and rather depressing aphorism that goes: A fence keep out only those who don’t really want to get in. In other words, regardless of what you do you still might be attacked.

Protecting your email marketing lists

Gloucester City Council (the Council) was hacked by, it is reported, Anonymous. It was fined by the ICO a not inconsiderable £100,000. This seems a bit like blaming a victim. Such a fine would be enough to cripple many companies. However, it is not quite as simple as it first appeares. The Data Protection Act … READ MORE »

Whilst I know that consistency is reassuring for customers, these companies are missing a trick. Email marketing is a precise craft. Everything, from the From line to the last, short, paragraph must … READ MORE »

The Google fine & email marketing

 The EU’s decision to take on Alphabet’s Google Search (Google) was always going to be viewed differently depending on which side of the Atlantic you were.

The election result and email marketing

Last week’s election result surprised many, not least Theresa May. We will ignore the machinations of party politics and the problems with forming a coalition and concentrate on what its likely effect will be on email marketing. Let’s start by saying there is no consensus. A few minutes rustling through newspapers and online will reveal … READ MORE »
