I was pumped to find out that I’d be able to write this stocking stuffer post because I get to talk about our incredible our Delivery Consulting Team! I’d introduce you to the team, but you probably already know them from all of the content they produce—Kurt
, and we're excited to welcome the latest addition to the team, Will!
Aside from their very full days helping SendGrid’s clients tackle email obstacles and reach their goals, the Delivery Consulting Team also takes the time to share their deliverability expertise with us by assisting with guides, presenting on webcasts, and writing value-packed blog posts.
These blog posts are a treasure trove of knowledge, and the value extends far beyond just telling you how to get your email to the inbox (though that is a major focus). The team explains the best way to start and the most gracious way to end relationships with your recipients, major differences between marketing and transactional email, and more in the posts listed below! I split up their 2016 posts into three categories:
