Education Session:
Do This, Not That: What’s Working Now for Email Marketing

In the wake of the pandemic we are seeing rapid behavioral shifts in how audiences engage with various marketing messages. What worked well last week might be the new taboo this week. Looking toward the second half of 2021, these behavioral changes will continue to directly impact how your targeted audiences notice and process the email communications you’re sending. As a key part of an overall marketing strategy, email plays a vital role in not only reaching intended audiences for your incentive, reward, or recognition programs, but also in helping drive new business and customer communication. This fast-paced session will look at data from the last 30 days to outline specific tactics for things like increasing open rates and clicks as well as boosting overall email marketing performance.

Attendees will:

  • Gain insight into what current environmental factors are causing open rates to fluctuate and learn the best days and times to email for maximum impact.
  • Access key learnings that can be implemented right away to increase open rates, clicks, and engagements as well as make offers stand out.
  • Master the latest tips for personalization, interactive design and even using emojis in your headlines.
