Inside Out: 5 Personas of Email Marketing

Marketing journeys will have various stops along the way. Sometimes one emotion will weigh in more than another. It’s an important balance we all need to learn and maintain. As we mentioned in our session, set it and forget is not a recipe for success. Revisiting your documentation with your expected results and assumptions outlined goes a long way to reaching ParDomination.

Testing

Everyone would love to jump straight to amazing ROI and validation of our KPIs. However, that rarely falls into place perfectly from the start. That’s why it’s important to take the first step in setting your goals early so that they can be evaluated and determine whether they are reliable benchmarks and identify your KPIs.

Often forgotten, this will be your saving grace to see the forest when you have been in the trees. Taking time to transcribe the who, what, when, where, why, and how can save you pain & heartache when your memories go to long term storage.
