Phrasee’s phavourite email marketing tweets of the month: October 2016

October was a great month for email marketing’s online community.

As the industry’s convention season reached its zenith and our sun’s rotations across the sky became noticeably shorter, connections were made, Twitter handles were put to faces at last and friendships were forged. Email marketing tweets were produced at a breakneck pace.

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.

As always, one easy place to stay connected and supported was old, reliable Twitter. For many of us, this much-maligned social network may represent a disconcertingly large portion of our human contact over the coming months.

Let’s see how we did…

Phrasee’s phavourite email marketing tweets of the month: October 2016

 

It was a time for community building as the Email Geeks slack community began recruiting in earnest…

 

And ‘Women Of Email’ continued its strong growth…

But, after spending some time with others like us, new theories were formed…

 

And of course it was important to always remember that being out in the real world can be a smelly proposition at times…

And that many of us function much better when left to our own devices…

 

We took a moment or two to poke fun at the less user-friendly among us…

 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…

 

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

 

And Worf took on some customer service reps… (Is this getting old yet?)

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!
