News and tips from the industry leaders in email compliance.

Recently, OPTIZMO’s head of marketing, Tom Wozniak, sat down with Rob Seaver from the LeadsCouncil for an episode of his video podcast – On-Air. They had a wide-ranging conversation coving industry topics including:

  • The importance of email compliance to an effective long-term email marketing program.
  • The positive impact of the CAN-SPAM Act on the email marketing industry. 
  • How TCPA is impacting SMS marketing.
  • Why email marketing continues to thrive after 40 years.
  • How suppression list management can be used beyond the opt-out list.
  • Why Negative Marketing Signals are important to email optimization.

Additionally, the interview covered some of the history of OPTIZMO, the importance of working with a great team, and some funny (possibly only to Rob and Tom) stories about Tom’s education and career path, including a conversation about his diploma from Bartending College.

If you have about an hour to spare, give it a look! (Yeah, we know it’s a bit long – but Tom is a marketing guy and that means he likes to talk.)
