Meet Today’s Email Marketing Experts

Meet the Experts from our Email Marketing Secrets: 2020 Workshop

You might be wondering, how does one become an email marketing expert? And how can these experts tell you how to run your company more profitably, without ever having walked a day in your shoes?

Widely recognized as the leader in email marketing for magazine publishers, Mequoda Systems currently operates more than a dozen email marketing systems in partnership with some of the country’s leading content brands including Prime Publishing, Yankee Publishing, and Cabot Heritage Corporation.

Hands-on email marketing strategy is one of the many duties we perform on behalf of our publishing partners when building and growing their niche membership websites. We also maintain a robust independent research operation that identifies and documents email marketing best practices at more than 100 organizations that include America’s top magazine publishers.

And Mequoda workshops have a long legacy of creating publishing success stories over the last decade.

When you complete our two-day Email Marketing Secrets: 2020 Workshop, you’ll be on a first-name basis with the very experts who know how to turn your publishing business around — as they have for many others.

You’ll also be certified for your email marketing knowledge and expertise as a “Mequoda Email Marketing Master”!

Having guided the development of more than 20 subscription and digital marketing systems, my team and I monitor and maintain a robust best-practices database of marketing techniques and business processes that helps power all Mequoda partner programs. My focus on client content strategies is a natural extension of my journalism education and background.
