The Permission Emailer’s Guide to Avoiding Filters by Jill Keogh  – MarketingSherpa.com 2003-2005 best seller. $99

“Jill did a fantastic job of researching a complex and (at the time) little-known topic – email deliverability and filters that affect marketers and online publishers. She forged deep relationships, virtually and in-person, with sources in the industry who normally did not speak with the press on the topic. She then was able to translate technical concepts into plain English for our readership of business people, so they could readily understand the topic and what actions they should take for their companies to succeed. It was a pleasure working with Jill and I would do it again.”  Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity   2011 Quote from Anne Holland – Founder, MarketingSherpa.com
