Stephanie Miller – VP, Global market Development, ReturnPath.net:

“Email is the backbone of most of the work we do in the business world. All of business starts and ends in the inbox.”

“Here is why email is really alive. Because it generates the highest return of anything in your marketing tool kit.”

“With email marketing you are making a commitment to a communicate and have a dialogue with your customers. You can’t blow it.”

Julie Niehoff – Regional Development Director, Constant Contact

“(Email) has really become a marketing lifeline for many small businesses across the country.”

“The purpose of email marketing is to set the rhythm of the relationships you already have. It’s not about a massive cold call to say “come buy my stuff” to people who don’t know you.”
