This one day workshop will run from 10am until 3:00pm on Saturday November 4th.
Whether you are brand new to email marketing or were volunteered to handle email blasts for your sister-in-law's boyfriend's window cleaning business, chances are you have lots of questions. Why do emails bounce? What's a blacklist? Why won't they open my emails???
If you're ready for some answers, you should join us! We'll discuss how email marketing works and explore the entire process, from list gathering to tracking each email you send.
Topics we'll cover include:
- Email marketing lingo
- Spam (ew)
- Building and maintaining your lists
- Creating good content
- Tracking your blasts
- And much more!
Your Teacher: Gabe Casalett, Web Designer
Gabe is a web designer and developer at a Raleigh-based credit union. His background is in IT, and his obsession with the web started when he volunteered to redesign a website at a previous job over 7 years ago. Today he spends his work days and much of his free time nerding out over HTML/CSS and looking for new things to learn. Gabe is fascinated by new technologies and our daily interactions with them. By working with GDI, he hopes to meet and help others who share his love of tech and the web!
There will be some hands-on activities, so we recommend you bring a laptop with a spreadsheet program such as Excel (Google Spreadsheets will work too).
- A free MailChimp account (useful, but not required). Alternatively, you can follow along with your own email marketing program. The concepts are all the same.
