Go against received wisdom in email marketing

Let me confess from the beginning that all I’m suggesting is that following the data blindly can often be a poor option. For email marketing, data is a tool, nothing more.

Create lists for your summer email campaigns

Have you ever forgotten the obvious items you needed for a holiday? It’s a rhetorical question of course.

Is ‘Buy British’ effective in email marketing?

Never go against history. If it did not succeed the first, second and third time, try something else. The past has an inertia that is difficult to overcome.
