Indianapolis Women in Digital OPEN June Meetup

This event is FREE to attend, and we do not hold open events often, so make sure to gather your squad, and connect with the empowering Members of WID. You will also get to meet your Indianapolis City Champion and Board!

This month's theme: Email Marketing

Does anyone actually need more email? We all know that inboxes are getting more crowded by the minute - and yet - email marketing is still one of the highest converting forms of digital marketing around. This month we explore how to get the most out of your email list; covering topics from what kind of subject lines to use, how to make your emails readable, what to actually email people, to the “don’ts” of email marketing that will land your messages in the spam folder.

"I recently attended my first Women in Digital meet up and it was unlike any other 'networking' event. While every person in the room was there in a professional capacity, there was an undercurrent of shared values, shared struggles, and shared desire for change.

It was a powerful experience to see women band together to raise each other up in a way that only women can. I can't recommend joining Women in Digital enough. This is a professional community that feels like the home we never knew we needed, but have always been seeking." - Alaura Weaver, Copywriter + Content Strategist
