Email programs often have conflicting priorities: budgets need to be met, activists are waiting to be engaged and you have to keep working to meet your organization’s mission goals. This training will help you develop strategies and tools to achieve all these goals with a cohesive email program. You’ll learn how to set the goals of your program, analyze data and develop a robust messaging calendar—including rapid response!—that helps you succeed.
