Imagine if CASL was passed without first having a public comment period so businesses and other organizations could have their voices heard? Imagine if GDPR went into effect 3 months after it was passed instead of after a 2-year transition period? Imagine if CCPA applied to people all over the world and not just people in California? All of that isn’t far off from what the email industry just experienced with the rollout of Apple’s Mail Privacy Protection (MPP).

What Do Your ESP Metrics Really Tell You About Your Deliverability?
The Email Experience Council

What do your ESP metrics really tell you about your deliverability? Knowing the deliverability of your email campaigns is essential to understand how well it’s doing. It also can be one of the hardest metrics to nail down. You might think you know your deliverability because you can look at the dashboard in your email service platform and see that 99% of your emails got delivered.

Deliverability measures how successfully your email ..read more

3y ago
According to Apple, “Mail Privacy Protection stops senders from using invisible pixels to collect information about the user. It prevents senders from knowing when they open an email and masks their IP address so it can’t be linked to other online activity or used to determine their location.” Depending on open rate and click-to-open rate as indicators of email engagement is no longer an option. (see what top email experts had to say about it) What does this have to do with email list hygiene? Now more than ever, marketers need an additional layer of intelligence to mitigate the risk of blindl ..read more

We asked industry thought leaders to provide their initial reaction and take on Apple’s newest privacy change to limit email tracking and mask IP addresses on the Apple Mail app, and its potential implications on email marketing. Here’s what they’re saying: “The dependency on opens as a KIP has been a contentious measurement for many years in email marketing. First, we had preview windows with drive-by opens, then we had all images blocked, then some images enabled again… wash, rinse, repeat. Opens are also an easily manipulated metric for a lot of brands. A simple segmentation of active user ..read more
