the dotties 17. Oh what a night! ?

As the curtain falls on another glittering dotties ceremony, we want to thank and congratulate the partners and customers who made our second awards an absolute triumph. If you didn’t make it on the night, here are a few highlights from our biggest and best dotties yet…

Art deco beauty The Troxy, in London’s East End, was home to our second email marketing awards.

Finding the venue was made all the easier thanks to this awesome pavement graffiti (who knew the streets of London were so filthy?!)

We had six street food stalls serving up delicious cuisine from all over the world. Here’s the Greek popup getting ready to feed our hungry delegates.

It was all hands on deck for the dotfamily to ensure the arrival of our guests ran as smoothly as possible.

And our talented LED saxophonist was on hand to keep everyone entertained before the awards kicked off.

Guests took their seats to discover 2017’s winners. There were 16 categories and this year we received a massive 350 entries!

We welcomed the hilarious Russell Kane on stage, who had the audience in fits of giggles with his super-sharp stand-up. He used to be a DM copywriter himself … who knew?

Then it was time to announce the winners. Here are a couple of the evening’s stars. First up: Shortlist Media – the creators of Stylist and ShortList magazines – who scooped Email Marketing Team of the Year. Huge congrats, guys!

We have to give a shoutout to Nosto for not only winning Best Technology Partner, but for being kind enough to let us ship some goods to their Helsinki office for our next benchmarking report (Hitting the Mark Nordics is coming in October… stay tuned!)

The winners got a snap with Mr Kane himself. What a guy!

And then it was time to party (helped by the free bar, of course). Our super-cool CEO and CFO showed off his smooth moves. Nice work, Milan!


Many thanks again to our partners – Fresh Relevance, Klevu, Vaimo and Wirehive – for sponsoring the 2017 awards. And congratulations to everyone who went home with a trophy.

How to avoid spamtraps this holiday season

It’s the time of year when there’s the strongest incentive to skirt around some best practices and send as much email as possible to try to maximize revenue. However, the last thing you want to deal with…
