Ray Ban’s 10-month delay in sending post-sales email isn’t as strange as it seems

Consumer reviews are a powerful conversion tool for ecommerce sites and many brands send emails to solicit product feedback from recent customers.

In general, this takes place within a few days or weeks of the purchase, while the customer is still enamoured with their new item.

However last week I received a post-purchase email for a pair of sunglasses I bought 10 months ago.

Programmatic advertising is currently one of the most talked about channels in digital marketing. 

Econsultancy founder Ashley Friedlein mentioned it several times while discussing his top digital trends for 2016.

Merry Christmas from Econsultancy, see you in 2016!

It’s Christmas Eve, which means that our blog traffic will have reached the end of its death spiral as the last remaining stragglers finally leave the office and head off to see their loved ones.

In order that our cherished audience doesn’t miss out on any digital marketing gold while they're celebrating Christmas and the New Year, we’ll be signing off until January 4.

That’s right, no new posts or Daily Pulse newsletters for an entire week.

This has the added benefit of protecting our own egos from the harsh reality of the holiday period pageview stats.
