Unfortunately, there’s a lot that can go wrong when sending out an email campaign or enewsletter that can damage perception of your brand or kill your campaign effectiveness! This checklist is designed to help you to create more consistent quality checklists which work better for your subscribers and your brand.

  • Create more engaging emails which increase response and revenue
  • Avoid embarrassing mistakes when customers receive errors in their email communications
