The Customer Obsessed Approach to Media Consumers believe that every interaction they have with a brand, direct or indirect, forms a part of their total customer experience with that brand.

Ahead of the holiday period, learn how to adopt the customer focussed principles of CRM to deliver the total customer experience through the activation of your media.

Email Deliverability Expert Panel: Why Black Friday means more in 2020 Black Friday has always been a golden opportunity to claw back some of the year's missed revenue, but the stakes are even higher in 2020. With digital channels performing at historical levels, and shelter-in-place mandates turning in-store shoppers into first-time digital consumers, landing inbox messaging is an absolute must.

  • The 2020 projected Black Friday email volumes
  • Things you can do now to boost your sender reputation
