Recently, I was reading some articles about William Shakespeare (stay with me here, folks!), which led to some posts that discussed whether he revised his plays, how many revisions there were, and how they evolved from first draft to finished masterpiece. Since I’m such a geek about email, I started wondering:
If Shakespeare had a mailing list, would he have tested different versions of his plays to see which one got the best response?
The leaves are beginning to turn, the days are cool and crisp, and Halloween is right around the corner (a pretty big deal here in Salem, MA!). Autumn has arrived – and that means the holiday season is coming up fast.
We know all you experts are on top of your holiday email marketing strategy.
