Phrasee’s phavorite marketing tweets of the month: October 2016
30 October 2016
October was a great month for email marketing’s online community.

We began to ask ourselves tough questions, like “What is a ‘slack community’?” All the while reflecting on where email marketing came from and where it is headed. We were universally glad to have others like us to lean on as we prepared to hunker down for the long, dark winter ahead.

And those times when we get it juuuuuuust right, although maybe we shouldn’t have…
We found new scales upon which to measure our progress…
And drew a few important lines in the sand…
Fair warning: If you send me a “no tricks, just treats” email, I WILL unsubscribe. Costume roundups only, pls.

Old time-wasting favourites were pulled from deep within the internet vault and reborn in email form…

In the end, all we were really left with was a stark reminder that the only ones who REALLY understand us, are us…
So shine on, you crazy diamonds, and keep tweeting. We fine Phrasee folks will be watching.
Because we need each other, more so with every passing day. And here, at our desks, in front of our warmly glowing screens, we can share our email marketing bond, free from the perils of stinky trains, judgements on our drinking habits and being lumped in with the spam geeks by a public which may never really understand us or what we do.
See you all next month!
