Marketing mistakes run the gamut from silly typos to catastrophic oversights.
Some leave you shaking your head; others can ruin your campaign or, worse, your credibility.
In email marketing automation, missteps are especially costly. Customers and subscribers can easily get turned off, and you don’t want to burn money on preventable problems. Here are six common email marketing automation mistakes to avoid:
Because you can create and schedule email campaigns with minimal time and energy, it’s easy to overdo it, especially when your metrics are looking good.
Spamming can hurt your business big time. Send relevant emails only to the right audience at the right time.
