I’m Ros Hodgekiss, a Customer Success Manager at Campaign Monitor, email marketing nerd, Disaster Volunteer with the American Red Cross and an enthusiastic, but not polished dancer. After over 5 years of writing the definitive HTML email guides and resources for designers, I’ve turned to a new adventure, consulting with leading brands and agencies on marketing strategy and growth. I happily live San Francisco, with roots in Australia and the Philippines.
Sometimes I talk at conferences and workshops, like:
- ‘Going International: How to Localize your Email Marketing Campaigns‘, The Email Design Conference, Boston, 2015
- The Future of Email Marketing, London, 2015 (organiser)
- ‘Staying Relevant as a Community Manager‘, SXSW, 2015
- ‘CSS Support in Email: The Problem we should be Fixing First‘, Inbox Love, Oct 2014
- ‘Customer-Centric Email Marketing‘, SXSW V2V, Las Vegas, July 2014
- ‘Adapt or Die: The Mobile Email Challenge‘, Future Insights Live, Las Vegas, June 2014
- ‘What’s Pushing Email Design Forward Today?‘, The Email Design Conference, San Francisco, London, Boston, 2013
- ‘Designing for Almost Every Device‘, Mobile Email Design Masterclass, February 2013
- ‘Optimizing HTML Email for Mobile‘, What Do You Know?, 2012
- ‘State of the Animation: Email, Video and the iPad‘, Ignite Sydney, March 2009
I also write a lot, too. For example:
- Smashing Magazine:
- ‘What 22 Billion Newsletters Tell Us About Designing For Mobile Email‘, August 2014
- ‘Email Marketing for Mobile App Creators‘, August 2013
- ‘From Monitor to Mobile: Optimizing Email Newsletters with CSS‘ , August 2011
- ‘Working Harmoniously With Your Team on Web (and Email) Projects‘, August 2014
- ‘The State of CSS 3 in Email Templates‘, May 2010
We can start a conversation by talking about:
- Places we’ve travelled – I go walkabout. A lot.
- Music and gigs – there’s also that weird monthly playlist I do.
- Food – oh gee, fried chicken is my favorite.
- Things that make you happy.
