10 blog posts that will help you engage via email

Engaging via email communications can be alternately extremely easy or extremely difficult. It can be easy if you are taking your relationship with someone to a venue that is greater than 140 characters. It can actually seem like an incredible luxury at that point. But if you don’t know the people you are emailing, engagement is only one of many concerns. Will you get black-listed? Will your email go directly into a spam filter? Will your message resonate or be deleted?

There are lots of people who are much smarter than me when it comes to the world of email, so I thought I would gather some resources for you. I hope they help!

Thanks Margie, great collection of e-mail strategies. I am a fan. My business went way up when I started my weekly newsletter and sent it out each and every Wednesday morning with one Social Media Tip. It allows me to be a litlle more personal and engaging with folks and brings em back to my site.
