Andy Mowat has created Gated—a company that’s about to turn email marketing on its head. Andy’s got a plan to reduce the number of emails you receive by having marketers pay a fee to have emails delivered. It’s a very cool concept with tons of implications for your business and your inbox—and you’re either going to love it or hate it. If you use email to market your business (and who doesn’t?), then you need to listen and find out how you can adjust to email as a paid channel.
