We’re back with another episode of Unread Mail! Today, Warren and I discuss our new email marketing guide that we teamed up with HubSpot to create—104 Email Marketing Myths, Experiments, and Inspiration.

The guide sections are organized as email marketing:

  • Myths – These are common misconceptions about email—such as the bigger the list, the better!
  • Experiments – If you’re itching to start an A/B test, this is a section you don’t want to miss out on. The experiments listed are a great way to optimize your existing messaging and design, sometimes small changes can have a major impact.
  • Inspiration – If you’re stuck in a rut or not feeling very creative, you can use these tips at the end of the guide to hopefully spark a new idea. Stale email programs aren’t great for senders or recipients, so make sure you’re keeping things fresh.

We discuss what went into creating the guide, as well as an example from each section.

Until next time, happy sending!
