Indianapolis, IN - May 14, 2008 - Jupiter Research expects e-mail marketing expenditures to hit $1.1 billion by 2010, and the Direct Marketing Association says that the industry is growing at eight to ten percent annually. The Truth About Email Marketing, to be published in August 2008 by FT Press, focuses on the rise of this phenomenon, and explores how companies can benefit from it.
Simms Jenkins, Founder and CEO of industry leading e-mail marketing company BrightWave Marketing, will focus on e-mail marketing best practices, optimizing performance, privacy and SPAM, and why using e-mail works. Part of FT Press's successful "Truth About" series, the book is designed to appeal to seasoned e-mail marketing professionals, novice small business owners, and others looking to utilize e-mail marketing.
"There is a strong need for a book that covers all of the key elements of a successful e-mail marketing program while dispelling many of the myths that surround this near ubiquitous but often misunderstood marketing channel," said Jenkins. "I hope this book can serve as a guide to building valuable and relevant e-mail campaigns in a more effective and efficient fashion."
The Truth About Email Marketing will be available at bookstores nationwide, and can currently be pre-ordered at its companion website, www.thetruthaboutemailmarketing.com, where additional information about the book and the author can be found.
