@JoeCardillo Amen! Most of us struggle with many of the same things. It's just that nobody openly shares it. Know what I mean?

@Karen Eason Good points, for sure. And I agree that some email marketing is reverting back to the more "batch and blast" methods of a decade ago. There is no reason why a link should take you back to the main site when it can just as easily go to a specific landing page. Don't make me work for it!
That being said, I think many marketers are using email to "nudge" their community to go back to its website. Make sense?
And again, I TOTALLY agree with you that email marketing should be - as I often say - timely, targeted and valuable. Let's add ENGAGING to that too, shall we?
Thanks again for your comments!

@Karen Eason @KasenPoint FWIW, I keep getting you both mixed up. Karen Eason and KasenPoint. Ha! Pretty close. Good point Karen about creating negative emotions. I'm no expert in the human psychology angle of this - not by any stretch of the imagination, but my gut tells me that tugging at someone's emotions can be effective.
@KasenPoint Ha. Totally agree that disagreement creates discussion and dialogue which in turn makes life more interesting. See? We agree. Ha! I just watched that video you linked too. My initial thoughts - creative, pretty funny, but maybe a bit long? Then again, if it works for them then it ... works. Really do appreciate your thoughts here.
@dshah Thanks Dharmesh. Appreciate you and the other Hubspotters sharing it. It's done VERY well to say the least. Wait till you see the blog post I'm publishing later today. It will show some #s from Google Analytics. Suffice to say, this post is now the 2nd most viewed page on WaldowSocial.com ... OF ALL TIME!

@Jason Stone Ha!
@KasenPoint Ha. Really? I have a VERY short attention span and they kept me watching the entire time. I even watched it 4x! Interesting, but a good point. Appreciate you weighing in.
@Karen Eason Totally appreciate your perspective! Curious - very very curious about your last statement:
Personally, I think everyone should really rethink the whole email marketing strategy, but that is simply an opinion on my part.
Care to expand?
@Brian Glad you liked it. I did too, as you know.
@merylkevans Ahhh. Good point. Dammit. I never think about the hearing/seeing part.
@meganfeltes Well said. Very very well said. BTW, did you book arrive yet?
@Andrew Kordek Ha. Too funny! Thanks for adding that to this conversation.
