The day's programs will run as follows:
Program 1: 9-10:30- Power of Email Marketing:
Why Your Email Doesn't Get Opened
Ever wonder why your email doesn't get opened or read? Email is everywhere - you can't reach for your phone anymore and not end up "doing " your email- which in most cases involves hitting the delete button 9 times in a row! Did you ever ask yourself why? Why did you get all of those emails in the first place? Is the term eBlast part of your vocabulary? Should it be? We'll show you examples of what works, and what doesn't.
