Whatever your situation, I’ve put together this guide of what you need to know about making awesome email, for new starters and self improvers.
Me? I'm Elliot Ross, CEO at Taxi for Email and MD at ActionRocket. You can read more here.

Wait! What’s Taxi?
I’m glad you asked. We’re a email productivity tool that helps your whole team make email better — designers and developers can build an awesome modular HTML template (we call them Email Design Systems), doing things like ensuring the mobile experience is great, and ensuring that everything stays on brand once content is added.
Marketers and content people can then use Taxi to add content to make actual email campaigns, without needing to touch the code. There’s a hundred detailed things we help you with there - things like adding tracking to the links in your email, and helping you segment different messages for different people — all of which help you systematically avoid mistakes, and get better value from the channel and your work.
Then once you’re done, you can connect Taxi to your sending tool (ESP), and we then send the code over to them so it’s ready to send.
We’d love to show you more, give us a shout!
