Ecommerce Influence Podcast Episode 132 2018 Predictions

Happy 2018! We’re back — and we’ve got something special for you.

Last week Andrew Foxwell and I hosted a Facebook Live where we talked about our email and Facebook marketing predictions for 2018.

Email marketing is alive and well, but there’s one email opt-in technique that needs to be put to bed once and for all — are you using it on your site? There’s been a ton of hype around Facebook Messenger, but it has yet to live up to it — will 2018 be its year?

Tune in to hear what we think will change and what will stay the same this year, and what you need to do to keep up with the ever-evolving world of online marketing.
