The curtains have closed and marketers have bid adieu to the neon lights of Las Vegas.

Final thoughts

A key theme present throughout presentations, roundtables and networking conversations at MarketingSherpa Email Summit 2015 revolved around the customer experience. With a vast array of advanced technologies to take email marketing to the next level for many organizations, it’s still essential to think about the customer.

Create an experience that honors what your customer is seeking and expecting from your brand. Serve up content and offers relevant to their interests via email and connect email marketing with your other channels, such as social, mobile apps and on-site.

And of course, be focused on what you want to achieve with email marketing — the metrics you measure should reflect that. Test and optimize every element in your email marketing to ensure you are sending the most effective message possible, and continue iterations on a test to further optimize.
