Hide Adverts And Click-Throughs In Full Sight

I’ve stored an advert to subscribe to an email marketing list for a little over nine months. It was in an enewsletter, with a hotlink to a landing page for ‘regular offers of products, often at a reduced price’. Whilst I didn’t expect to be offered anything I particularly wanted, I thought I’d give it … READ MORE »

Testing your click-through rate

There’s only one way of assessing the overall success of an email marketing campaign and that is by the return on investment. It’s the only metric that matters.

Problem With Targets In Email Marketing

Have you ever worked under one of those bosses who was personable, convincing, enthusiastic, and, given a target, would chase it? A 20% increase in an email marketing list? Off they’d go, like a rat on a rocket down a drain, everything ignored except that figure.  Their management tactics would have begun with setting targets. … READ MORE »
