Do you have trouble decoding HTML? Or programming in Java to make a website work? Even though coding is a valuable skill, learning it is like learning a foreign language; you need to practice. And that can be tricky when you were developing email content with a service such as Mailgun.
Using Mailgun the email service can prove tricky because it requires advanced developer knowledge. Not every entrepreneur has that, especially as computer code gets more complicated. At Mailem, we want to help you overcome that learning code.
This is a standard business maxim that applies well to technology. The more computers and smartphones advance, the more often that Often a leader will fail if they feign knowledge and experience with a program they have never used before. If they admit that they need to learn, then their associates will appreciate their honesty. It also means that they can reach out and find the resources they need to complete a task. Often the people who like you want to help you and will provide the knowledge they have.
Knowing what you can and can’t perform with Mailgun will help you determine a strategy for using it, whether you try with IT and marketing, or outsource to another company. You can also decide if you want to hire someone with developer knowledge, which can prove to be a big help.
Knowing what you need to accomplish helps with identifying what you still don’t know or understand. If you are using email services, you have a reason for this form of marketing or communication.
Every business using a mail service has several definite goals: you need to manage your email reputation, avoid the spam box, and abide by the CAN-SPAM Act. You may have additional goals, such as the content you want to deliver, or to identify which email addresses are the most responsive and have the smallest bounce rates.
Fortunately, basic HTML requires only a few tags to start with learning. Quite a few schools teach these for determining website color palettes, font, and text size. On the practical side, many positions value coding, so you will add to your skillset.
Many online resources can help you get started, like Free Coding Camp and Dash, with learning and practicing HTML and Java. You do have to put in time and effort, but it will be time well worth it. Alternatively, have your employees that will be using Mailgun to run through these tutorials and learn to code. It will cost time, and you will not regret it.
This ties into the “know what you don’t know” maxim. UI or user-interface covers the area where humans know how to interact with machines, such as computers, tablets or smartphones. Some software helps ease these interactions, especially for beginners.
