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. In this program, Amy Starnes, Best Friends Animal Society’s Online Fundraising Manager, walks you through the creation of a great email strategy and helps make implementation easy. Other more advanced strategies such as list segmentation are also discussed. This program was part of the American Pets Alive! 2015 No-Kill Conference.
