Considering sending an email that highlights one of your most popular products. Explain why it’s so special, include a photo of it being used, get testimonials from customers who have purchased it.
In The News
Make the most of any media coverage that your company receives. Don’t be afraid to toot your own horn. Create an email that either links to the piece or summarizes it, and share it with your audience.
Be The Expert In Your Field
