Okay, you read the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003. You may have implemented some form of authentication into your outgoing email practices. But how much do you really know about the rules of email deliverability?
Fact is, these rules have been steadily changing since CAN-SPAM. As threats to the inbox evolve and get smarter—think image-based spam, phishing, farming, etc.—the best practices of yesterday are not necessarily capable of fully dealing with the threats of today.
Marketers need to constantly adapt along with those changes to stand the best chance of getting to their customers' inboxes. The current trends in deliverability, reputation and spam show that they are not adapting as well as they should, and a little re-education and authentication update could make the world of difference to email success rates and customer satisfaction.
Attend this seminar and get a Microsoft insider's view on how you can improve your odds of getting your messages to the right destination. Please note: Many examples in this session describe security measures as they relate to Hotmail.com, but similar measures are being taken by most large corporations and email service providers. This content is relevant to anyone doing serious email marketing today.
