Email Direct Marketing: What you need to know to sell more

Email Direct Marketing: What you need to know to sell more

Owning your content via a blog and email direct marketing (eNewsletters) to your audience should be part of any marketing strategy. As I've discussed previously, relying on social media to connect with your customers is fraught with danger as the rules change and the landscape shifts.
