In a session yesterday at the NEMOA directXchange Spring Conference in Boston, Anna Pfeiffer, a marketing strategist at marketing automation services provider Bronto Software, identified her top 10 must-have components for a successful email marketing program. Here they are:
1. Creative and content that are engaging to your subscribers: Convey your brand personality and interact with your subscribers, Pfeiffer said.
