If you’re sending emails on the regular, your sending score and status is critical to your brand reputation.

Since your brand impacts the connection and rapport you have with your members and customers, keeping it shiny and healthy can be challenging.

Through this session, we’ll explore the “art and science” of email deliverability. Ron McGrath, CEO of HighRoad Solutions, will walk us through the practical approaches his team takes to increase deliverability numbers. We’ll also hear deliverability techniques from Bob Gentry, at the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA), an esteemed HighRoad client with a stellar sending reputation.
