Yes, I can see how this is potentially worrisome for email marketers, but as someone who's worked with domestic violence agencies, I can also see this being a potentially good solution for people who are in a domestic violence or stalking situation. If the abuser/stalker has a decent level of tech proficiency, digital security is a real concern for victims and survivors. This seems like another potential tool to increase safety.
OMGEEEEEE! I think this is exactly what I was looking for! I'm heading out for the day but am going to look at it more tomorrow. Thanks!
I've done this a few times, with the pitch of saving time and/or improving accuracy. As the only person in our org who builds emails, I was getting overwhelmed and confused—and dropping balls—because people would email or sometimes even chat me with requests, resulting in many back-and-forths. I decided I needed to have everyone fill out a quick form so that I could get all the info I need in one place, consistently. I tested it out with one coworker, worked out some kinks, and then launched it to everyone else. The buy-in came after the fact, when it was easy for people to see how much quicker and more accurate the whole process became. And how much less stressed I was!
