Erin, We adopted Emma HQ last year as an enterprise email campaigns platform. It has been largely a positive experience, but we have experienced some frustrations and challenges based on information that Marigold didn't clearly communicate during the research and RFP process.

Honestly, I hope the social media platform formerly known as Twitter does go behind a paywall. That will provide the justification I need to finally drop it as a coms channel. It was once our go-to social media platform but we rarely see engagement anymore, particularly with students. I'm looking for ...

I'm interested in whether any of your institutions have email standards/requirements for vendors that are official university partners and send emails to campus constituents (e.g., a benefits provider). We periodically receive vendor-partner emails that look phishy and violate the guidelines ...
