A thoroughly good day well spent. Andrew was a great trainer, very knowledgeable and engaging and I really felt I learnt a great deal! Thank you.

Very enjoyable course which ran at the right pace. Kept us interested throughout and reminded us of what we should be doing as well as discussing some new ideas.

An excellent and informative course on email marketing which I would highly recommend!

I found the course both interesting and informative, and took away plenty to think about on how we can use email to improve our marketing campaigns.

Great trainer, airy space brilliant for thinking. A really useful day and one of the best courses I've been on in terms of practical examples to take away. The venue was amazing and it was also a great chance to network with like-minded people on the course in similar positions and share tips/experience on what works and what doesn't!

This is the second Emarketeers course I have attended and yet again I came out brimming with ideas for how to take my organisation forward.

I would definitely recommend this course - the trainer was engaging, the content relevant and I took lots of information and ideas back to the workplace.

This is a great course. Even if you think you know your stuff, it's nice to have a reminder, in this case a very detailed and enlightening recap! Thanks Emarketeers

This was an interesting and well-run course, covering everything you need to know to help improve your email marketing. Would recommend!

If you're looking to get more return from your e-marketing campaigns, book this course! Excellent content and training materials.

Loved the email course, excellent content, great tutor and superb venue.

The trainer (Andrew) was engaging and fitted so much into the time provided, and yet no topic felt rushed. The course provided me with a lot of really interesting and useful information to take back to my team. Would recommend.

Very useful course! A lot of email marketing content covered in a day of training; the trainer was very knowledgeable and made the course enjoyable and easy to put into practice.

I learned a lot over the course of one day, the facilities were also amazing making the learning process that much more comfortable and memorable.

Emarketeers offered a prefect course for me - and it lived up to expectations. The venue and the trainer were fanatastic. The course is well to put together and well executed. I will revisit Emarketeers for future training needs!

This course provided a good opportunity for us to sit back and consider the things we do with our email marketing; from selecting the customer data, how we talk to our customers, right through to how we track and define success.

Very insightful and delightfully presented. We came out with a whole toolkit and cannot wait to start implementing our new email marketing strategy.

Fantastic course. Well paced and interesting with so much useful information to take away. Thanks.

The email marketing course has provided me with some great tools and ideas and inspiration to put some quick wins in to practice immediately.

Excellent course. I came away from the day armed with ideas for how to improve my email marketing including some quick wins!

An eye opening enjoyable experience, covering many unknown areas of email marketing not previously considered.

A worthwhile course, highlighting the best practices for email marketing and made enjoyable in a nice environment with superb facilities. Many thanks.

A fantastic course, great tips, great advice and presented brilliantly!

The course was very comprehensive and I've come away with a more strategic view of what our objectives should be with email marketing and how we can better integrate it into the marketing mix. The trainer was very good at keeping the course flowing, while at the same time being genuinely happy to answer people's questions.

An extremely useful day full of information and new knowledge, provided by a great trainer!

An excellent course full of practicle advice and great ideas. Entertaining delivery to boot.

My second course with Emarketeers and again excellent value. I was treated as an intelligent adult with valuable experiences rather than just lectured at. Came away very well informed on both occasions.

The email marketing course was very insightful and has allowed me to put what I've learnt into practice instantly.

Hard subject to cover in just a few hours but brilliantly done and at a good pace by Andrew.

Excellent presentation and a great learning experience from Emarketeers. I would recommend the course to anyone wanting to learn more about email marketing.

A comprehensive and fascinating insight into the world of email marketing. I was so inspired, I immediately set to work rewriting our strategy on the train home!

I found the email marketing course really useful for future campaigns and projects. The tips and advice given will, I am sure, increase productivity.

Excellent course, the knowledge I have acquired on the Email Marketing Course is really going to help push our business forward.

I was very pleased with the amount of content covered during the course and it was very well presented. Excellent course for both those with some experience of email marketing as well as those who are new to it. Plenty to take away and make good use of.

We found the course extremely useful in giving us confidence that we were on the right lines as well as giving us tips for future activities.

We found the SEO and Email Marketing one day course to be hugely insightful. The course was tailored to WagerWorks activities and focused on how both these areas could be improved. It was a well structured day complete with invaluable information to assist us with our future SEO and email marketing strategies.

Emarketeers provided an excellent and informative insight into a complex industry that can be difficult to grasp. They combined theory with clear case studies which helped bring email marketing, internet marketing and SEO to life. I am very excited about using my new found knowledge!

Extremely useful emarketing session. I'd thoroughly recommend them to anyone seeking consultants in the online marketing minefield
