I’ve been in the email game for close to 6 years and prior to 2020, it was like pulling teeth to convince brands to invest into their email channel.

2020 was a pivotal year with everything that happened in the world to help convince the smart brands to take the necessary steps to build our their email program.

2021 is going to be even more important to double down on email (or for starting to take email seriously for the first time).

Brands didn’t have to focus on email before (although the smart brands did) because Facebook and Instagram made it too easy to scale. Now that Facebook and Instagram are getting harder, email is going to be play a much larger role in terms of revenue generation.
