Email marketing for book publishers (BookMachine CAMPUS)

10 May, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 24 May, 2021 @ 2:00 pm BST

email marketing

Nowadays many marketing teams focus a lot of their efforts on Instagram influencers and other newer ways to reach their market. However, email marketing is still an effective way to reach and convert your buyers. In fact, 78% of marketers have seen an increase in email engagement over the last 12 months according to a recent HubSpot survey. During this session we will look at ways to improve your current email marketing strategies and content, with examples for inspiration.

This course has been designed to run over three consecutive weeks to allow you to fit this into your busy schedule. We also find that it helps attendees to retain information from the session.

It is split into three 1-hour sessions that take place between 1–2 p.m. (BST). We will send you one Zoom link which will be used each time you log on for the course.
