Around just about as long as the Internet email marketing has been pooh-poohed as "old school" and no longer relevant. Our guests Mckenna Hallett and Scott Fox beg to differ.
In 1992, Mckenna launched her own business selling jewelry. Living in Hawaii she had to figure out how to reach a much wider audience. She turned to the fledgling Internet, built a website and developed an email marketing campaign. Since then Mckenna has sold more than 40,000 pieces of jewelry to more than 200 shops. Today she continues to sell steadily to over 50 shops and galleries across the nation.
Best-selling author, Scott Fox was in Silicon Valley as the Internet was exploding into new opportunities. Instead of pursuing his intended law career he became engaged in strategizing on how to capitalize on the new technology, starting and consulting in many e-business start ups. Today he hosts a popular online business training forum, podcasts about online business opportunities, consults on new online businesses and coaches entrepreneurs worldwide.
They are both passionate about email marketing and see it as the best way to reach others - in their inboxes. They share a commitment to helping others use the power of the Internet to design successful lives.
