Email geeks make email better. How? By discovering and sharing tactics that elevate user experience that brands can employ. This is what makes them the heart of the tight knit community that shares a love of email.
These cape-less superheroes know that email is more than just a way to build relationships and trust with an audience. It’s also one of the most effective marketing channels in play today.
According to our friends at Campaign Monitor, email has an ROI of $44 to every $1 spent.
Just because it’s lucrative doesn’t mean it’s easy.
Email developers strive to create better looking, better functioning emails. With finicky inboxes, such as Outlook and Gmail, developers find ways to improve code for email clients.
This all comes on top of the continuous battle to stand out in the inbox amongst a myriad of regional or ESP-specific web clients and new mobile apps coming out every day.
For this reason, we’d like to recognize (and thank) just a few of the many email developers worldwide who have been very active with their contributions to the community and help email marketers everywhere improve theirs. Be sure to check out their websites and follow them on Twitter to keep up to date with their latest tips and innovations in the industry.
