Can Stupid Jokes Make for Good Marketing Emails?

I know firsthand how difficult it can be to continually come up with new topics for your emails.

The first 20 are easy.

And once you’ve done a few hundred emails, you’re pretty sure you’re just writing the same things over and over again – most likely because you are.

If you want to keep your emails fresh, interesting and even exciting for your readers, then it’s time to step up your game and find...
