Sometimes, reaching out to the right people is all about not reaching out to the wrong people.
Whether it’s previous customers who have unsubscribed from your list or simply clients you know don’t take well to receiving emails, it’s important to maintain an up to date do-not-contact (DNC) list to avoid the landmines in your email list.

Sure, AI may be trending, but just because you might use ML to help with your data analytics doesn’t mean your emails should send like an experiment in the Turing Test.

Even the strongest relationships can have periods of radio silence. So, how do you strike up a conversation with your contacts when you haven’t spoken in ages?
The trick is to offer some “proof of life” behind your emails. Write subject lines that are timely and prove there’s a real person behind your email, not just a bot churning out hundreds of emails a day. Keep the copy personal, unique, and human – and don’t be afraid to show some vulnerability either.
