The Care and Feeding of Your Email List

The Care and Feeding of Your Email List

Just as we were finishing up last month’s carnival, one of the carnies mentioned some anxiety around the fact that email unsubscribes seemed to be an uphill battle.

It sparked a lively discussion, and before we knew it, the topic for this month’s carnival was born.

If you’ve ever wondered what to do about unsubscribes, or how to get a list started in the first place, you’re in the right place!
