Let’s Talk: Engagement part 2

Our next #letstalk deliverability session will be Wednesday July 1 at 17:00 GMT and 09:00 pacific. We’ll be continuing the Engagement discussion as we didn’t get to all of the questions folks asked. And my best intentions of following up with them got derailed for a host of reasons. Easy enough to continue the discussion where we left off and answer the remaining questions.  Notes and agenda for...

Upcoming events

Mailcon Webinar: June 25th, 10am pacific I will be joining my Women of Email co-founders at a webinar hosted by Mailcon on Thursday June 25. Never have brands felt such pressure to “adapt or die” than in 2020. A global pandemic threatens lives, a human rights movement has reached a fever pitch, and impending economic devastation looms on our horizon. Brands have departed from business-as-usual...

Terminology

There is a lot more to say here, and I’m working on a longer post to really talk about the underlying racism in tech and how we as an industry have failed. In the deliverability space, specifically, the use of blacklist/whitelist is terminology rooted in racism (black is bad, white is good). Many DNSBLs use the block terminology and have done for a while. But there are still too many places...

Let’s Talk: FBLs

Next Delivery Discussion Wednesday, May 20. We’ll be talking FBLs. I’ve been reviewing the recording of last week’s call. A few folks have reached out and asked that their comments not be shared, so I am working out next steps. The good news is that the recording worked well and I’m learning new skills. Please RSVP to laura-ddiscuss at the obvious domain. Invite will go...

Spamtraps resources

We had a well attended call yesterday, almost 40 people showed up. I did get a recording but need to work out some editing before sharing it. What did you do during the pandemic? I learned lots of new things and spent way to much time relearning all the virology and immunology I forgot after leaving the lab… I do have the google doc of resources and information I put together prior to the...

Let’s Discuss: Spamtraps

Our next Delivery Discussion is May 6 at 5pm Irish time, noon eastern and 9am pacific. We’ll be talking about spamtraps. Drop me an email at laura-ddiscuss@ the obvious domain to get an invite. Bring your questions, your concerns and, yes, even your gripes to talk with various folks in the industry. We’ll share what we know, what we think and what we feel about spamtraps. I’ll...

What’s missing in MarTech?

A few weeks ago, Kickbox asked me, and a bunch of other folks who know their stuff, what was missing in MarTech. Yesterday they published what we thought. Check out their blog post and see what folks had to say.

Email Deliverability Unfiltered: What’s missing in MarTech for deliverability?

Deliverability is nuanced

The deliverability discussion calls are going well and I’m going continue to host them on a biweekly basis. Next call will be May 6th, 5pm Ireland time, noon Eastern and 9am Pacific time. Still doing invites manually, so drop me an email at laura-ddiscuss@ the obvious domain. A few weeks ago, the discussion entered around machine learning in general. As a follow on I’d planned to talk...
