Making money and saving time are two objectives for almost every business, and smart strategic marketers use those objectives to devise and refine their plans for all aspects of their business.

How do you define your campaign goals?

  • What actions do you want your subscribers/prospects to take?
  • Why should your subscribers/prospects care?
  • Who are you sending the campaign to?
  • How will you measure success?

The answers to these questions will define the creation of your email campaign.

Here’s a list of the top objectives used in email marketing today.
