October is the month of giving here at Litmus. That means we encourage Litmus team members around the globe to volunteer, but it also means that we want to use the power of Litmus Live and the wonderful email community that comes together for it to support local charity organizations that are close to our hearts.
That’s why we had the Pine Street Inn join us for Litmus Live. The team at Pine Street Inn helps homeless men and women in the Boston area with emergency services, housing, and workforce development programs. At Litmus Live, we invited them to share the incredible work they do for the Boston community. We’re so proud to share that we helped raise a total of $8,872 cash donations for the Pine Street Inn, along with plenty of other donations.
We at Litmus believe that a company’s purpose is not only its products and services, but also the greater impact it makes in the communities where it lives. For us, this means that we care about making email better, but we also care about being engaged and making a difference outside Litmus and beyond the email community. It’s even one of our core values.
As we head into the month of October, Litmus would like to spotlight this core tenant of our team values. With #LitmusGives, we’ll bring together team members in our offices for volunteering activities and show how our remote team is making a difference in their local communities all over the world.

Last week, we held our first conference of the year—Litmus Live London. Our day with Europe’s finest email geeks was jam packed with inspiring sessions, networking, and tons of excellent takeaways.
Couldn’t make it to London? Interested in what the hubbub was about and thinking of joining us for Boston or San Francisco later this year? Don’t worry. Twitter was abuzz with quotes and actionable advice all throughout the day, and we’ve rounded up our favorites here.
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.
