First, I'm here b/c I use CampaignMonitor ... and I thought this might be a good place to find professionals who know what they're doing when it comes to HTML email.
I produce HTML emails for a number of clients. Sometimes we design them, sometimes we just produce what other designers deliver to us. We're looking for a specialist who can help us improve the overall quality and process of our HTML email efforts. This could be another agency or freelancer - just someone who's nimble enough to respond on a day-to-day basis to new campaigns and has tangible expertise in this area.
Foremost, we need a more effective approach to managing the process of design, production and QA for emails. What we do, today, is simply too loose. We'd like to craft a more systematic program so clients know what to expect and, ultimately, have a better experience.
Obviously, tangible expertise in this area ... an email portfolio, perhaps
Solid standards-based production skills
Effective communicator when it comes to explaining standards and working with clients
Must be able to move on designs pretty quickly
Overall, someone who can simply manage the process from a more systematic perspective and deliver better quality to the clients.
Look forward to some links and emails.
Thanks for the post - how would you like people to respond? Directly to you?
I thought people would just post links to their websites in a comment. But I wasn't real sure, because i didn't just want to put my email address out there in open HTML, and there isn't anyway to subscribe to posts. I've posted my website link.
I would be happy to help - and I'm in Pittsburgh. Contact me at info at the refreshpittsburgh.org site!
