You spend so much time writing emails to your supporters, you need your important messages to end up in the inbox! But Gmail, Yahoo, and other email providers are constantly changing how they sort your emails. Join deliverability experts from Twilio SendGrid and Action Network to learn how to ensure your emails get to your activists every time. We’ll cover how email providers determine what’s spam and what isn’t, how the algorithms have changed in the past year, and how you can test your email program to ensure deliverability. You’ll also have a chance to learn new strategies, practice techniques like testing down the list, and ask questions to some of the foremost experts in the email deliverability field.
