What Marketers Can Learn From Online Gaming
With people spending more time at home, it’s no surprise that they’re turning to gaming as a way to fill their time and fulfill their desire for community. Even if your business has nothing to do with games, the core principles behind online gaming’s growth can still be useful. For example, 83% of consumers want to see brands connect people and help them stay emotionally close. Is your business running online events? Are you helping customers share their stories on social media? How are you engaging your customers?
Facebook Tests Email Marketing Tools For Business Pages

You’ll be able to send emails out to a list of your customers (that you’ve uploaded) directly from your Page. It appears that Facebook is trying to expand the capabilities business owners have available to them, so look out for this test — and maybe others like it — in the future.
