Are all of your emails reaching your subscribers' inboxes?
If your answer is along the lines of “I have no idea,” then this webinar is for you. According to a recent Return Path study, in the second half of 2011, global inbox placement rates were at a record low - 76.5 percent. In other words, nearly a quarter of all commercial emails never arrived in the inbox. Yikes!
Join James Thompson of Infusionsoft, Tom Sather of Return Path, and DJ Waldow of Waldow Social on September 5, at 10AM PT (1PM ET) for part one of our two-part live webinar series, “The Path to the Inbox.” In this webinar, you'll learn how to navigate the “long and winding” road of the email inbox. We'll provide tips and tricks to give your email marketing messages the best possible chance to reach your subscribers' inbox.
James Thompson is the Email Systems Manager at Infusionsoft, managing both the technology and email compliance aspects of Infusionsoft's email infrastructure. He has been professionally involved in the email industry for nearly six years. During that time, he has gained vast experience and understanding in what makes an email marketer successful in today's email marketing environment, drawing on his understanding of the technology that drives excellent deliverability as well as the appropriate marketing practices to compliment state-of-the-art email systems most legitimate ESP's provide today.
