Raise your hand if you didn’t start your career in email and just sort of… ended up there. Maybe it was the natural next step, maybe you took over someone’s responsibilities when they left, or maybe your company decided to add an email program to their overall marketing strategy. Others wrangle email as one of their multitudes of other responsibilities.
If you’re an email marketing team of one at your company or just need some extra support, take a deep breath: you are not alone. The email community is alive and well, and there are many ways you can connect with people just like you all over the world. Here are some of our favorites.
At Litmus, we care deeply about our customers and the email community, and we’re working hard to make the email world a little better every day. But we also believe that our involvement shouldn’t stop at the end of the work day or be limited to the email community. We’re proud that many of our team members are engaged in their communities beyond Litmus, and as a brand, we believe that it’s our responsibility to do the same. That’s why Litmus offers Volunteer Time Off (VTO)—paid time away from work that employees can use to volunteer at an organization of their choice. Plus, volunteering has become part of our bi-annual team get-togethers.
