The Best Quotes on Email Marketing There are times when you’re sitting at the computer trying to drum up the next idea for your weekly newsletter campaign. That’s about the time when it would be really great to have a couple of colleagues to use as a sounding board to bounce ideas off of. Chances are, there’s no one like that in your marketing team – but there is this post, which curates some of the best and more inspired conversations on email marketing.

"The cost of being wrong is less than the cost of doing nothing." – Seth Godin

"Open, click and unsubscribe rates are pretty poor measures for email engagement."  – Jordie van Rijn

Jordie van Rijn also has this gem to add…

Think about which of these quotes made you stop and think for a bit. If you had to stop and think about it, chances are it’s a gap in your current email marketing campaign. The next step is to chart out where you are now and where you want to go. What action do you want your audience to follow through on when they get your email marketing campaign. Are you looking for a sale, a social share, a conversation or some other type of action? Once you can identify that, you can pair the gaps you discovered here and start creating a strategy.
