RSS: A Medium for Marketers

June 17, 2004 at 6:32 by Martina Comments

Email marketers get often stopped by spam filters. Their challenge to deliver a legitimate promotional message to users’ mailboxes is gettin harder and harder. The end is near… But, wait, don’t desperate, there is a light at the end of the tunnel! It’s called RSS, and it’s here to save a lot of jobs in the email marketing industry…
As pointed out today on ClickZ, RSS is, indeed, a medium for marketers, not just a tool for lazy web surfers who want to have all the content they’re interested in just one click away.
But the main point I’d like to focus on, is exactly this: lazyness. I tend to forget to turn my feed reader on, and I tend to assume this is something that might happen to several other users. So will RSS really help email marketing to survive?

    No, RSS is dead once the marketing wonks get hold of it. Period. For a more detailed message read J-Walk’s post: http://j-walkblog.com/blog/index/P15443/
