Only Influencers: The Organization Every Email Marketer Should Join
by Jeanne Jennings, Clickz
A look at two organizations that will help email marketers stay connected and involved in the email marketing community. One thing I love about the email marketing industry is the comradery. I was reminded of this again last week while I was in New York on business. I was lucky enough to connect with fellow ClickZ columnist Stephanie Miller and a few other industry friends for dinner. I've had similar dinners in Atlanta, Kansas City, London, Washington, D.C., and many other places. If you're an email marketer and you aren't linked into this community, you're missing out. So I thought I would write today about two organizations that are near and dear to my heart - and which I highly encourage you to join if you're looking to build a career in email marketing. They are the Email Experience Council (EEC) and Only Influencers (OI).
