Email Marketing Best Practices for the Global Marketer

What does a global economy mean to a U.S. email marketer? It means you need help. And the DMA has it.

Yes, spam might be a distinctly American food, but as unsolicited email, it’s known the world over. And you want to avoid being seen as spam by making sure you know the rules and regulations for countries other than your own.

It covers 25 countries where you might be doing business—or want to be doing business. Using this guide means you can adhere to email marketing best practices that will keep you compliant the world over. And that means more revenue when you can save yourself from being blacklisted in a country with willing customers!
