Notes from Chris
Episode 708THEMES & TAKEAWAYS: How many Black Friday/Cyber Monday/"on sale now" promotional emails did you get over the past couple weeks? I think I lost count at 100+, including many from lists I had never subscribed to. 😠📩 Still, there is a place for the right email marketing. If you don't have an email list of your own, you're missing out. To learn more about this and everything else, check out today's Weekly Recap!
