Why embedded videos in email marketing don't work

If the vertiginous rise of video-sharing and streaming platforms such as YouTube, which receives more than 6bn video views from 1bn unique users every month, has taught us anything it's that people have a voracious appetite for video.

49 email marketing tips for beginners

It’s strange to think that email is still such an important tool for marketers, and in fact business people of all types, when there is so much technology at our fingertips now.

Hi [insert name] welcome to our awesomely helpful blog post! ☺

Let’s take a look at a few examples and discuss how these emails and tweets have mastered the art of apologising.
