Tom Tate, host of the “Ask Me About Email Marketing” podcast from industry pioneer Aweber talks with us about how email has evolved along with the times, covers all the essential concepts so you can make sure you’re covering the important bases where email marketing is concerned, and even gives us a sneak peek at some of their newest upcoming features: tagging contacts and click-based triggers.
