I know a lot of friends who do marketing gigs and pay for marketing events to boost their knowledge on stuff like email marketing and search engine optimization. Sometimes it surprises me when they’re all willing to drop a lot of cash on self-professed marketing gurus even though most–if not all–of the really good marketing advice can easily be found online. Just by using the right keywords, you can easily find the right information you need to create a great campaign.

  • Think about your text and image sizes—along with the amount of whitespace—when laying out your email to make reading, navigation, and sharing easy.
