Email connects you to people; email marketing is how you connect your company with those people.
Like many of you, I’ve used automated short URLs for years. URL shortening services such as ow.ly, bit.ly, t.co and goo.gl have long been a part of my social toolbox. -And now that there’s such a push for having shorter URLs anyway, it seems kind of… anti-marketing… to stop in my tracks now and say, “Waaaait a minute,” but I’m doing it anyway. Yes, I’m reconsidering the use of URL shorteners.
