VIDEO + SLIDESHOW: Email Marketing & The Audience Imperative

While we were posting, liking, tweeting and Instagramming, something funny happened. Marketers around the world reawakened to the revenue-driving power of our oldest digital marketing channel: email.

What does the future hold for email marketing?

That was the subject of a keynote presentation by Jeff Rohrs, author of Audience: Marketing in the Age of Subscribers, Fans and Followers, at the Marketing Land Digital Marketing Summit at SMX West 2014. If you were unable to join us, here’s his talk.
