Today was the day of the Email Marketing Forum in Brussels. A day full of surprising slides, great speeches, a huge amount of tips & tricks and a lot of meaningful dialogues, all about email marketing.

An old, but yet still interesting insight kept spinning around in my head all day.
One of the keynote speakers, Skip Fidura (OgilvyOne Worldwide), was touching the overall discussed issue that the end is near for email. He, I, and definitely a lot other smart marketers, refuse to agree with this nearby funeral.

Stay tuned on this blog if you are eager to learn more about these subject and its elements!
