Four predictions for email marketing that won’t come true in 2016

For the last three years, I’ve made predictions about various aspects of online marketing (see here for 2015 and 2014.) They’re mostly right, except for most of them.

So here’s some predictions for email marketing that won’t come true in 2016.
