    How to Do Email Successfully in 2024 with Eman & The Marketing Meetup

    How to Do Email Successfully in 2024 with Eman & The Marketing Meetup

    We talk a lot about mistakes on this podcast. This time, I want to talk about how to do something right.

    Instead of our usual interview, I delve into the art and science of effective email marketing following recent deliverability updates from major email providers like Google and Yahoo.

    I share to ensure your emails continue to reach your subscribers' inboxes, and I give you the scoop on list cleaning, making unsubscribing easy, maximising subscriber engagement, nurturing subscribers, and sending targeted, relevant emails.

    I did this presentation as a webinar for The Marketing Meetup, a community of 50,000 marketers last month. Hope you love it! :)

    [TEASER] Behind the Scenes: Making the Podcast with Eman & Zuri

    [TEASER] Behind the Scenes: Making the Podcast with Eman & Zuri

    This episode is a little different.



    I wanted to provide an in-depth look at the podcast, its creation, production, and evolution. And I’ve brought in some help!



    I’m joined by the show’s podcast producer, Zuri Berry, who’s interviewing me about the different aspects of my podcasting journey — from creating the concept, to selecting guest, and scripting engaging discussions, and so much more.



    I share my reflections on the first two seasons, my new partnership with HubSpot, how the podcast is going to change moving forward, and how YOU can be a guest on the show :)

Mischa-Z ,

Love the Laura Belgray interview!

Great insights:
Once you stop emailing your list you stop building trust…You’ve got to keep emailing. “…If you go away, you lose that trust”.

She starting having her success at 50 she feels like :). I’m 55 so I love that!

and she just drives home… After making the mistake of stopping to email her email list… KEEP EMAILING

DesiCreswell ,

Great Questions!

I love the concept behind this show and Eman asks great questions. More conversations like this are needed. We all mistakes and it’s time to normalize it and learn from them.

One of my favorites

Mistakes That Made Me is the type of podcast that you want to tune into as soon as a new episode comes out- and as a fellow podcaster, one you aspire to be like.

Not only is it incredibly well produced, Eman is also a warm & engaging interviewer her guests share great value & insights into “mistakes that made them.”

Highly recommend!
