Don’t pester your mailing list

This is very important, you want to ensure you find the correct balance between staying in your customers mind and becoming an annoyance. You certainly do not want to become the latter.

If engagement is low, try altering your subject line or content instead of increasing contact. From a personal standpoint, I find one email a week to be quite sufficient.

Customization is key
