I’m not quite dead yet!
You might recall that great line from Monty Python’s Holy Grail when they are “bringing out the dead”. Twitter and the blogosphere have been buzzing lately about the imminent death of eMail resulting from a recent WSJ article. No doubt it will be beaked to death by a twittering canary. Of course, the very suggestion of this impending doom creates a push back buzz of “I’m not quite dead yet” posts regarding eMail marketing.
Rather ironic (but, not at all surprising) that print, whose market and reach are receding faster than the polar ice caps, is predicting the death of eMail.
Be assured eMail is “not quite dead yet” and the cart hasn’t even pulled up to the house. Read this great post from George Bilbrey at Mediapost if you don’t want to take my word for it.
Have a look at what The eMail Guide’s CEO (Chief eMail Officer), has to say on the subject!
