As an email marketer, you know that the field is always evolving. From Apple’s move to block opens to  the loss of cookies to new innovations, it’s important to stay on top of the trends, changes, and best practices in the industry. Keeping up to date with email marketing is important – with changes happening frequently that can affect the performance and effectiveness of your campaigns.

One of my top pieces of advice for email marketers that want to grow is to constantly learn not only from our own campaigns but from other prominent figures in the industry and their knowledge and experience (perhaps that’s even why you’re reading this blog now!).
