Marissa Mayer gave a rare public interview (albeit behind closed doors) since becoming CEO of Yahoo to Fortune's Pattie Sellers Tuesday night.

To improve results, marketers must embrace strategies to heighten email relevancy and improve timing. By doing so, they'll increase customer engagement and conversions.
