Businesses of all sizes know that despite all of the latest fads in social media marketing, chat bots and pixels, the one thing that consistently gets the highest return is email.

With email you own the data, you can segment and put the right message in front of every person and build deep, personal relationships.

But clicking 'send to all' is DEAD.

People get far too much irrelevant email. In this show Rob and Kennedy blow the cobwebs off antiquated email marketing and give it a ruddy good shake up.
