[The Digital Edge] Email marketingOne keeps on hearing of crazy statistics that spam consists of ninety percent of all email traffic and that by the 2047 the world will be snowed under by spam messages.

In this episode we speak to Striata and Prefix, two of the largest email marketing providers in the country. We'll look at the process of creating an email marketing campaign and how to make sure you avoid looking like a purveyor of the latest generic drug spam.

We also speak to a seller of email lists to see how they get their databases and what they do with these databases.
