ESPs vs Brands: who delivers?

In this session, Alice Cornell and Tamara Bond draw a line in the sand regarding these responsibilities. They will discuss their disaster stories when expectations don’t meet reality, and highlight the successes obtainable by achieving a positive symbiosis between two teams who are ultimately on the same side.

Email for the Future

  • Naina Raisinghani - Product Manager, Google

More than 270B emails are sent each day and are the center of many consumer and enterprise workflows. However, the content within these messages is still limited – messages are static, can become out of date, and are not actionable without opening a browser. With this in mind, dynamic mail was created. Dynamic mail modernizes and enhances email by facilitating the creation of messages that deliver and update real-time information and allow consumers to take interactive actions directly within the email. This technology enables email senders to provide more engaging, interactive, and actionable user experiences, while keeping users safe. Join an expert from Gmail to learn how major brands have already seen a 100% increase in clicks using this technology and how you can engage your audiences in a new way.
