Epsilon‘s Hayden Saunders posted an interesting piece about bringing email marketing in the social age on the Email Insitute blog a while ago. As you know a topic we have been covering since ages so we’re glad we can post it here for you.
Social media has created a huge buzz in recent years and many consider it the future of marketing. While there’s no doubt that its popularity has altered the media landscape, a report (Equation Research: 2009 Marketing Industry Trends Report) found that 37% of companies avoid social media because they don’t know enough about it.
While there’s enough potential for email marketers to curry favour among these detractors, specialist providers recognise the benefit of integrating email and social media, and are leveraging the opportunity to bridge customer understanding of social media platforms.
