Each day, the average office worker receives 120 emails, and over 306.4 billion emails are sent worldwide1. These figures might feel a bit overwhelming, but not surprising given email's amazing ROI, accessibility and an increasingly mobile world. But in this opportunity lies some bigger questions for anyone using email marketing; standing out in a crowd of 306.4 billion is no easy task.
As humans, our lives are all amorphous combinations of our own personal knowledge, experience, skills, interests, and hobbies.
Among your friends, you may all have shared interests such as playing board games, but each person likely has different knowledge and skill. Among your coworkers, you may have similar experience and skills, but different interests and hobbies.
More likely than not, any given group will be some combination of all of those aspects with similarities shared between individuals.
It's no secret that email communication is one of the most essential forms of contact with customers and clients, with phone and in-person communication taking no small part.

Brokerages spend a lot of time and money on their brokerage platform - the software that often powers some or all of their website, CRM, Intranet, email, presentation application and lead generation tools. As with anything, an all-in-one-all tool has some features that are more powerful than others. Fortunately, many platform vendors, and best-in-class vendors such as rezora, use application program interfaces (API) to easily send data between the brokerage platform and third parties.
With the end of COVID on the horizon (knock on wood) and things slowly heading in the right direction (throw salt over your shoulder), it only makes sense that people will be out on the town, and your marketing is going to want to be there, too. This is called guerrilla marketing: an unconventional approach to your strategy that’s cost effective, and a lot of the time, it’s outside (though not always - more on that later).
In this technology driven world, personal handwritten notes are a rare commodity. Emails, text messages, chat messages, and even tweets are the new normal as they are more accessible (and easier) than putting pen to paper. That said, COVID-19 has forced everyone into a virtual norm, making handwritten notes more important than ever before.
