The Role of E-mail Marketing in an Outbound Marketing World

February 23rd, 2011 No Comments

Everything I’ve learned about marketing, I learned at HubSpot. No, that’s not really true — I first learned strategic marketing when I started my first non-profit at 15 and worked in Senator Barbra Mikulski’s press office, while a college freshman.

But — perhaps because my first marketing introductions was online, inbound marketing — I’ve long been a fan of HubSpot staff and marketing lessons. First, I became Inbound Marketing Certified, with honors — following course that’s now being adapted at Harvard Business School, among others.Unlike too many “social media marketers” (a term that I despite — do you call someone a telephone marketer?) I take an integrated, holistic approach to marketing. This includes developing and implementing marketing strategy. It includes the curriculum at IMU such as:

  • conversion optimization
  • lead nurturing
  • marketing analytics
  • public relations
  • e-mail marketing
  • E-mail marketing may not be as sexy as Facebook, but it’s still an essential core in the marketing implementation and MARCOM toolkit.
