I really wouldn’t think this would be such a tough topic for email marketers to understand.
I can’t even begin to tell you how many emails I receive each day at the email address that I’m migrating away from (because as soon as I leave Road Runner, I’ll lose it) and how many companies would miss the chance to market to me if I didn’t take the time to return to their site and re-sign up for their email newsletter… all because of one simple mistake:
Remember – visitors to your website and subscribers to your email newsletters need to be handed their options on a silver platter in the easiest to navigate and understand manner as possible. Without boiling your content down to it’s most basic essence, you might unknowingly compromise your effectiveness and (gasp!) – your audience altogether.
Merry Christmas, happy holidays, and best wishes for a successful 2009!
