Email is still king when it comes to driving in online revenue. That means building your email list is one of the most important things your organization or campaign does. This session will analyze the pros and cons of paid and non-paid acquisition and help you develop a road map to successfully develop a qualified list that actually delivers to in-boxes. We will teach you how to build a list successfully (even if it is from scratch) and how to continue to maintain its overall health (what to look for in your reports and what tests to run to check your list health). We also will cover how to optimize landing pages and asks, as well as techniques to employ when trying to engage your newest contacts.
