One-to-One Coaching Clinics

This is one of the most valuable features of Email Summit 2013

Our goal is for each of our Email Summit 2013 attendees to leave with their email questions answered. Although the general sessions and summit workshops will be very informative, there is nothing quite like advice that is tailored to your specific situation. That’s where our one-to-one coaching clinics come in.

We’ve assembled a team of industry experts that can answer your most pressing issues related to email. They’ll meet with you one-to-one in a half-hour session to listen to your challenges and give you valuable advice. These clinics are not cleverly disguised sales pitches. They are designed for you to get the information you need given your unique situation. If you’d like to discuss software, a platform or service issue that is fine too... we’re here to help you get answers!

One-to-one coaching clinics are conducted in half-hour sessions on a first-come, first-served basis. Don’t miss out on this crucial component of Email Summit 2013.

  9. Email Measurement and Testing: Are you experiencing problems with measuring and reporting on the effectiveness of your email campaigns? This clinic can help you distill your data in order to track the information that matters most while gaining deeper insights into the behavior of your customers by showing you how to leverage your metrics and analytics to improve your bottom line.
  10. Email Competitive Intelligence: Email marketers can use data to gain insight into their own and competitors’ email programs via new engagement metrics such as read rate, delete unread rate and forward rate. Understand how real email program optimization is and learn what triggers the maximum level of recipient engagement to make your email program best-in-class?
  11. Email Reputation - the sender score: Like a credit score, a Sender Score is an indication of the trustworthiness of an email source. A cooperative reputation network with a simplified view into data that is aggregated from 60 million mailboxes at a variety of ISPs, spam filtering, and security companies determines your reputation. This is the same type of data that mailbox providers use to determine whether to accept or reject email. Learn exactly how your reputation impacts your customer engagement.
