1. Get Permission. Permission based marketing is a must, otherwise you're just another spammer and no one likes a
spammer. Am I right? So make sure you have permission to send email to your list.
2. Keep it out of junk mail.
If you hit junk mail you'll never get a chance to communicate your message, so avoid too many characters, all caps and exclamation marks in your subject line.
