Email marketing summitI am attending the Marketing Sherpa Email Summit in Miami today and will be making frequent mobile posts from the sessions.

Stephan Tornquist from Marketing Sherpa opened the conference with some research findings.

  1. Email marketing’s picture in general is fading because getting through to swamped email boxes has gotten much harder, open rates at 25%
  2. Users of full service email marketing services are generally more successful – list segmentation is the key
  3. Shorten subject lines – 2 and 3 words increase open rates – see Seth Godin’s blog post titles
  4. Vary your templates – move ads and content blocks around to help with ad fatigue.
