Email management and marketing is much more than simply opening a free Gmail account. You need a strategy and an email marketing platform like Constant Contact or Mailchimp.

Other more advanced strategies such as list segmentation are also discussed. This program was part of the American Pets Alive! 2015 No-Kill Conference.
