The Rebel's Guide to Email Marketing WebinarBy Gini Dietrich

When I speak, particularly to groups of business owners, one of the stats I show is how many emails were sent just last year (529 trillion).

I use this to prove a point: Email marketing is far from dead and, while we have new and shiny tools to use, it’s one we tend to forget about. Not only does it work effectively, if done well, it’s one of the most efficient lead generation tools you have available.

That’s why we invited DJ Waldow, the co-author (with Jason Falls) of The Rebel’s Guide to Email Marketing to hang out with you for an hour this Thursday, July 25 at noon ET.

Before we begin, I’d like you to scream, “Email marketing is not dead!”

Email Marketing is Not Dead!

Because I am the shallow figurehead around here, I get to see the webinar ahead of time. I watched it this morning and it is very good, which is not a surprise if you know DJ.

He starts off by showing you some examples of some really good – and some really bad – email marketing and then has you play a game…a game that will make you snicker at how you multi-task, even when you’re hanging out on a webinar.

Some of the examples he shows you will make you want to go and out and create new email marketing immediately…particularly the one from the BombBomb CEO.

The Secret to Email Marketing

Not only does he tell you the secret to email marketing, he provides a couple of them (with his happy little face holding up a finger to his lips as if to warn you not to tell anyone else what you’ve learned).

He helps you figure out how to grow your email lists, how to test your subject lines, and what myths exist and why they are not facts.

I walked away with several things we’re going to try, including how to use Twitter to grow our lists…for us and for our clients.

Free Webinar

Now it’s your turn to get all of this information and spend the rest of the summer tweaking your email marketing campaigns.

Register for the free webinar by clicking here. Please note it is a two-step process. You’ll register through Spin Sucks Pro and then receive a link to MeetingBurner, which will get you a meeting notice and even add it to your calendar, if you like.

Please do not skip that second step or, come Thursday at noon if you’re on the east coast (11 a.m. if you’re in the Midwest, 10 a.m. in you’re in the mountain region, or 9 a.m. if you’re on the west coast), you won’t know where to go to get all of this information.

And you’ll miss meeting his dog, seeing him after only a few hours of sleep, and finding out what he has in common with President Obama and Brian Clark.

Here is the link again for the webinar (just in case you’re a scanner and missed it above).

I will not see you on Thursday as this is my week for 2014 planning…and I have to finish writing Spin Sucks.

But Lindsay Bell-Wheeler will be your host and she and DJ will take questions throughout the hour in the webinar chat box and on Twitter.

Enjoy it…I know you’ll get lots from it!

  • Wait, I just noticed this line- “Because I am the shallow figurehead around here”- hilarious!

  • I am bringing the stobe lights and disco ball! This DJ is going to rock the house. Is Tiesto opening for him?

    • Howie Goldfarb TIESTO! HAH!

      • rdopping

        RebeccaTodd Howie Goldfarb This is a funny world. On Saturday my wife and I were doubled-over howling our butts off at an ad for TIESTO who is playing at the almost defunct Atlantis night club in Toronto’s Ontario Place. Fortunately, no one from Toronto will be there #douchebagcentral

    • Howie Goldfarb No…Justin Beiber is.

  • djwaldow always has good examples to share…excited to see the webinar this week!

  • susancellura

    I’m back from vacation and am looking forward to this webinar!!

    • susancellura YAY! Welcome back!

      • susancellura

        ginidietrich Thank you!! And it wasn’t humid at the beach!  A lovely time was had by all!  🙂

        • susancellura Riiiiight. Perhaps you’re just used to it?

        • susancellura

          ginidietrich I promise – there were actual sea breezes!  🙂

  • Sounds like fun. I expect to be there.

  • RegisDudley

    I’ll be there! Will there be the opportunity to ask questions, ginidietrich?

    • RegisDudley Yep! We’ll do questions throughout in the chat box and at the very end there is about 15 minutes for Q&A.

  • Signed up! I definitely need to do more with email marketing. It’s sad how many people are on our list that we aren’t actively marketing. 🙁 Hoping there will be a recording of this — not entirely sure I will be able to attend the live webinar.

    • TaraGeissinger There will be, but make sure you register so we know to send it to you!
