Managing Email Within Multiple Lines of Business Within the Enterprise Managing Email Within Multiple Lines of Business Within the Enterprise Presentation Transcript

  • Managing EmailWithin Multiple Lines of Business Within the Enterprise 11:40-12:40 February 23, 2012
  • Today’s SessionThis session should help enterprise email managers improve their programs and ability to navigate compliance, internal partners, and corporate management.Many sessions focus on creative (especially for retail) or deliverability, but rarely do you see a "how to" on managing the channel. Most presentations are "a" campaign for "a" product.Few focus on how to get email as a channel at the table with senior level management at an enterprise company or give strategies for working with disparate divisions with different products and rules, yet reconciling them to an overall corporate goal. That is what I am seeking to do here.
  • A Brief History of Email• Early 60’s – email begins as a way for users of time-sharing mainframe systems to communicate at MIT. Email was limited to users of a single system.• Mid 70’s – multiple proprietary systems develop for sending messages between computers over closed networks and ARPANET (precursor to the modern day Internet).• Early 80’s – SMTP protocol developed. Standardized mailing format with ability to send to multiple addressees.• Late 80’s – MCI and Compuserve allowed to send ―commercial‖ mail via National Science Foundation’s NSFNET as an experiment.• Early 90’s – Online services AOL and Delphi join Compuserve.• Mid 90’s – Text-based email used broadly in business world via MS Mail and then Lotus Notes.SOURCE: Interactive Email: The Next Big Revolution in Email; Aaron Smith, Responsys (EEC 2011) View slide
  • A Brief History of Email• Late 90’s – Web-based email platforms begin to appear (Yahoo,Hotmail, Lycos). Support for HTML formatted email develops. Early email marketing efforts by a few pioneers. First wave of ESPs develop.• Early 2000’s – Free for all! Broad-based support for HTML and extensions such as javascript and video leads to abuse by spammers and phishers. Crackdown on HTML capabilities.• 2003 to 2010 – No video, no javascript, no Flash, code your emails like it’s 1998.• 2010 – Yahoo, Hotmail, Gmail beginning to experiment with enhanced capabilities for approved marketing partners. HTML 5 allows for full video playback on some platforms (iPhone, Apple Mail, Entourage), with fallback image displaying on unsupported platforms. Gmail Priority inbox.SOURCE: Interactive Email: The Next Big Revolution in Email; Aaron Smith, Responsys (EEC 2011) View slide
