Is The Customer Always Right?

I'm evidently seen as the go-to person for all things IT and email marketing in my family, as not only do they come to me with their problems but they tell their friends to give me a call. It is fair to say that I enjoy the fame. Mind you, for the majority of the … READ MORE »

Optimum Number Of Words For A Landing Page

It's a question that is often asked. Should there be as few as were on the marketing email or is now the time to try and convince by overwhelming the subscriber with facts? The answer is simple enough. As in most things to do with email marketing, there is no optimum; it depends. I've recently received … READ MORE »

Landing Page Copy Should Reassure Subscribers

Your marketing email has performed well and a subscriber has clicked through to the landing page. From here on in you can only mess it up.
