    • debate key issues facing the industry,

    • no Powerpoints, no pitches

    • the opportunity to network with other OI members
  • Opportunities for in-real-life networking with your colleagues in the email world, at industry conferences and regional meetups in the US, Canada and abroad (once the COVID-19 pandemic makes it safe to do that again)

Our community welcomes brand-side marketers as well as professoinals working for vendors, agencies and consultants in the email marketing industry.

The Only Influencers community has been an indispensable resource for email marketing professionals since its founding by Bill McCloskey in 2010. With Bill’s retirement in 2019, The OI community and its annual Email Innovations Summits were purchased by Rising Media, co-producer of the Email Innovations Summits.

Rising Media has enlisted Jeanne Jennings, a long-time OI member and recognized thought-leader in the email marketing industry, to manage the OI community and program the Las Vegas Email Innovations Summit. Questions? Feel free to reach out to Jeanne at Jeanne@OnlyInfluencers.com or 202.365.0423.
