One of the fundamental premises of marketing automation is email engagement. And as modern marketers, we are under serious pressure for our emails to perform — they must drive engagement, conversions, and most importantly, revenue.

We send emails for a lot of reasons. Sales teams send them to generate new leads. Content marketers send them to try to get a link or encourage an influencer to share something on one of their social accounts. Point is, we rely heavily on emails to try to convince others to do something for us. Unfortunately, someone’s inbox isn’t always the most persuasive channel.

In contrast, search seems dull: it’s still the best-performing and highest-spending channel by far, but the makeup of the industr ...

Why are we still having this discussion? Because data show that a surprising number of businesses still don’t have a website. Surveys from as recently as October 2016 find that close to half of all small businesses don’t have a website, and it’s not just solo work-from-home moonlighters, either. Specifically, a Capital One survey of 400 small businesses — its Fall 2016 Small ...
I’ve been spending a lot of time on the road, speaking at conferences and talking to marketers and business owners, and I’ve been having the “content” talk far too often lately. You know, the one that’s almost as awkward as sitting down with your kids to talk about the birds and the bees, but where you’re talking to a business owner and telling them that their last SEO agency duped them.
Generating a return on your investment in analytics initiatives can seem like a tall order. First, you’ve got to complete a robust yet resilient implementation of an analytics platform across your sites and apps. Then, because collecting data doesn’t create value for your organization in and of itself, you need to build out some kind of analysis layer so that you can comb thr ...
