This week (and for the next few weeks) we’re doing something a little different but equally as valuable…an interview series. Our first interview is with Simon Harper.

Simon will be talking at our Chimposium in October 2021 about Apple iOS 15. In case you didn’t already know, Apple will be introducing some privacy features that will both change the way you market via email to your customers and shift the focus of email reporting and analytics.

We were super excited that he joined us on Chimp Chat to give us a taster of what to expect from Apple’s changes as well as other things coming up which will affect the way we do email marketing. It’s one not to miss!

Simon is a freelance eCommerce & WordPress Website Designer, Mailchimp Partner & Technical SEO geek. With over 20 years of industry experience in website design and over 10 years of industry experience in email marketing. You can find out more about Simon here.

We talk about:

  • How Simon got involved in Mailchimp

  • How Apple iOS 15 will impact email marketing
  • Deliverability
  • Tips for doing better at email marketing
  • And much more…
