Founder of SellHack. Former Yahoo exec via Right Media acquisition. Startup marketer and biz dev since 2003. Startup mentor at FlashStarts. Built a few good companies and some not so good ones. Learned from all of them.
Email is the most effective medium of communication to prospect for new business. Know why your emails aren't getting opened, read or replied to? We do. Call us.
Agree with Lee's responses so I won't reiterate his points.
Additionally, the use of multiple domains is a strategy to ensure that deliverability for your transactional/product/account related messages isn't affected by any sales/marketing related email communications which may be sent through a different domain like a .co or a subdomain.
Gaming the system is temporary. Seems like you need to repair your IP/domain reputation and change your strategy for copywriting, send frequency etc.
ps - make sure you have DKIM and SPF records set up.
At Critical Mention Ryan worked with our largest clients on a daily basis. His comittment to growing these relationships made him a valuable part of the team. Ryan works well in a start up environment and performs very well under pressure. Ryan is the consummate Client Facing Professional.
Ryan is a talented and dedicated advertising professional. He successfully managed the International Services Team of Right Media in a complex environment that involved several offices located in the US, Europe and Asia. Together, we visited numerous clients in various countries and the outcome of the meetings was always positive. Clients like Ryan's energy and ability to come up with answers to the most complicated questions. Working with Ryan was a pleasure and I would have no hesitation recommending him.
Ryan assisted us with our International Initiatives and geographic expansion into the Asian marketplace. We greatly appreciated Ryan's knowledge and experience with the latest technologies for online advertising and his first hand feel for the state of developing markets worldwide. Always a pleasure to deal with, we look forward to an opportunity to work with him again.
Ryan is one of those special people in our industry. He has a unique ability to connect with people on a personal level through business. When Ryan was at Yahoo!, I had the distinct pleasure of working with him through two of my companies-- in both cases, Ryan always delivered on every promise, which is rare nowadays. I wholeheartedly recommend Ryan and always look forward to working with him again.
What can i say about Ryan: You get to know a person very well when u work with them for almost 2 years. Especially when when u travel overseas with them alot on business. One of the smartest and hardest working guys around, he is consumate professional, well liked and respected by his colleagues and clients. And an all around good guy to know. I was sad to hear he was leaving the company but know he will do very well wherever he goes.
Ryan is a level-headed and knowledgeable partner in the online advertising space. His attention to detail, cheerful attitude, and worldliness all help contribute to his success. I took great pride in working with him at Yahoo and am eager to see the developments in all of his new endeavors. I recommend him highly.
I had the pleasure of working with Ryan helping find solutions for our unique traffic partner needs. Ryan knows his stuff cold down to the gory details - which makes all the difference and made the process significantly more frictionless.
After a relatively short period of time on the Right Media International Team, Ryan's role grew dramatically from deployment of new clients to managing a team of account managers across Europe and Asia - a direct reflection of his talent and dedication. Ryan's ability to juggle continents and time zones whilst effectively managing his team was impressive to say the least.
In addition to this Ryan was a vital cog in much of the strategy and product planning across the wider Right Media business, representing the International team's interests. Without which we could have been easily overlooked.
Ryan is a pleasure to work with, professional and diligent to a fault whilst managing to maintain a very relaxed and approachable demeanour. I would have no qualms in both recommending and working with Ryan in the future.
Ryan and I have known each other for over 2.5 years now, and its been a pleasure knowing him. His work ethic, his knowledge of the domain and his zest for handling tough situations needs a special mention. A complete people's person, Ryan has always been a great support to the team when we needed him.
His expertise on the Right Media platform and knowledge of the Internet Media space is amazing. Also his energy levels have always been those which can be seen in a start-up environment.
I hope that our paths cross in the future and we have the opportunity of working together again
Ryan is a great guy to work with. He was always alert, responsive and basically really excited about his being a part of building a long lasting relationship. I would highly recommend Ryan as he is a talented and positive individual. I do hope we will work together again soon.
Working w/ Ryan is a learning experience I recommend to anyone in the online industry as his knowledge and expertise widely exceed expectations and he constantly delivers the intended results.
