The Heart of Business by Benchmark

The Rose Bowl Parade is one of the few shared American experiences we have left. It could be a kid waking up to stare in awe at the floats rolling across the TV screen ... or a bit older and hungover, seeking solace in a New Years day routine we've enjoyed since childhood. We talked to William Flinn, the Executive Director of the Rose Bowl Parade, about the event and all the prep that goes into it. It's a great look into community, tradition, event planning and so much more.

We sat down with Benchmark Email CEO Curt Keller, VP of Marketing & Sales Jose Hernandez and Director of Design TJ Taylor to talk about the advancements in email marketing that we saw in 2015. We also took a look ahead at 2016 and made some predictions for what we expect. It was a good wrap moment to end the year as we took stock of how far email marketing has come in twelve months and we left excited for the year to come. Listen and enjoy.
