It’s almost the most stressful exciting time of the year: Cyber Week!

Out of all the different digital marketing channels that strengthen the relationship between brands and consumers, email is the best (I only have a small bias). Not only does email have the opportunity to be your organization’s most intimate form of digital communication, but it also continues to outperform other channels, and not to mention, be integrated with those channels to improve metrics all across the board.
