Email marketing and marketing automation

Email marketing has been a core tool in digital marketing for many years, however, it is often not used to its full potential due to issues around design, user targeting and deliverability. This workshop offers a practical guide to getting the most from email campaigns using the latest techniques, tools and best practice. The workshop will suit anyone who has responsibility for delivering email marketing campaigns. Both those new to email marketing and marketers who feel they could be getting more from their email will benefit.
