Great episode. Thanks so much, guys. Really enjoyed listening and picked up some very clever tips.
Super Steve! Thanks for lending us your ear holes 🙂
Any fav tips?
I love how you talked about people being so sick of reading emails. It reminded me of Kate’s clever tactic with the Copywriting Conference recently when I received and email with this subject line: Nadia can you read this quickly?
Oh she’s a clever clogs isn’t she? I’m totally stealing that combo!
She is! Speaking of email marketing, I’m about to dish out extra money to change my website hosting because I am so sick of the menacing emails from my current provider. It’s really shown me that if you reach out to your audience too much they will simply switch off or go away, no matter how good your copy is. I think that’s pretty telling when a current customer who has had not other problems, is willing to pay more so they can leave you. Marketers and their marketing huh!
