In this week's Martech interview series, we spoke with Alexandra Rufatto-Perry of Accent On Business, an executive presence and communications advisory firm that works with competitive professionals who want to project a confident and competent image. She works with a variety of executives on how to say what it is that they need or want to say, while looking and feeling their confident and influential best.
In other words, Accent On Business teaches executive presence.
For a lot of people, executive presence is really elusive. However, according to Alex, it's more important than you think:

Christian shares his lessons learned... and remember... he's NOT a marketer, he's an entertainer. You'll find that he's had to teach himself online marketing, analytics, and social media.

As with many of the best tools in MarTech, Neverbounce was created by an agency to correct a real-world issue. In this in-depth interview with CEO and founder Brad Owen, Brad walks us through the problem that necessitated the solution and shares how it continues to evolve and make an impact in the market.
Whether or not your company is involved in list procurement or list sharing, the turnover on email addresses is significant. Brad and his team have found that no other factor impacts the deliverability of a brand's email than the number of bounces their list is generating with an Internet Service Provider.
