One of the greatest challenges and greatest benefits of working in email is that the landscape is ever changing. While this can sometimes lead to headaches when keeping sending strategies up-to-date…one thing is certain– there is never a dull day in the life of an email marketer. In addition to focusing on new privacy regulations and even newer authentication methods, email marketers also have to consider how their competitors are handling these very same challenges. If your head is spinning just reading this, we have a solution for you.
