purging-to-prevent-spamtraps

Someone recently asked when they should purge addresses to remove spamtraps. To my mind this is actually the wrong question.

Remember the Little Things this Holiday Season

remember-the-little-things-this-holiday-season

Fall is my favorite time of year. The changing colors, the crisp air, football, and the anticipation of gathering with friends and family for the holidays. It is often a time for reflection, to think of days past, accomplishments, failures, and the promise of tomorrow. For marketers, Fall is less a time for reflection, and more a time for action. It is a very important…
