There are unique issues involved when marketing to a cross-border and cross-cultural community, and Nick is the Ninja to ask.
Let’s put a bee in your bonnet about social media as we discuss people focusing on doing social, not being social; companies thinking that social media are fast; companies treating social media like an entrée, not an ingredient; companies using poor metrics like followers and fans to guide social media decisions; and people asking what’s new and hot instead of worrying about how to do the current stuff better.

Chad and Dylan join us to talk about the gluttony of emails over the holidays. What worked and what didn’t and what does that mean to the year coming up.

This show has 2 great email marketing experts, get your questions ready and start the new year off right with a dose of “you’re gonna do better this year” type of advice.
Email marketing for non-profit associations is a different ball game. People on those lists likely are more enthusiastic about the content offered them – they are members after all. Chris Donald from the Inbox Group (they work with a lot of associations/non-profits) and email marketing blogger Scott Cohen, who works with University newsletters, join us to talk about non-profit email marketing.
Jeff Ginsberg will be speaking at the Media Post email Insiders Summit in Park City Utah, which runs from December 5th – 8th.

We’ll talk about how to avoid that kind of disaster. As an independent email marketing consultant & coach Tamara Gielen helps customers harness the power of email marketing, blogging & social media to attract customers, establish thought leadership, nurture relationships and increase sales.
For some reason Bill Waggoner didn’t make it for the show. One does have to wonder why, if his position is so solid, he would pass up a great opportunity to explain and defend it. However, Jeff and Jim and John Caldwell did get into a good discussion about spam and several other fascinating issues regarding email, social and even direct marketing which you should enjoy.
Jeff and Jim welcome Ali Swerdlow of the Email Experience Council to eMail Radio!
You can bet Jeff will want to get her opinion on one of his favourite subjects: Do we have too many email marketing conferences happening too close together?
Alchemy Worx CEO, Dela Quist joins Jeff & Jim to pose the question:
Are YOU sending enough email?
Current thinking in email marketing is dominated by DM techniques with a particular focus on RFM; leading to an overreliance on relevance, timing and ever tighter targeting. In effect what we are trying to do is get everyone to open click and buy from a greater percentage of the email we send …… by sending fewer and fewer messages! But can less really be more?
The fact is that most email marketers simply don’t test enough. You should be split testing such things as subject lines and calls-to-action. That’s just the start, what else should you be testing with your campaigns and how best to do it? Kelly Lorenz email marketing strategist of Bronto and Nathan Maxwell, eComm Marketing Manager at Delta Apparel will join us to put testing to the test and answer your questions!
Getting your email to the inbox is your first challenge as an email marketer. Recent changes to popular email clients such as Gmail can make that an even bigger challenge. Tom Sather, Director of Professional Services for Return Path joins us to discuss these changes and answer your deliverability questions! Tom will have plenty of insight and tips to help you get your message to your subscribers!

Karen Talavera of Synchronicity Marketing joins us to talk about how important your blog is to your email marketing campaigns and your business. A well-written, frequently updated blog can drive significant amounts of traffic to your website (more and more these days, it may BE your website). With the impact of search indexing and social sharing, it’s likely that many potential readers are first landing on your blog pages – not your home page or product pages.
