Why Emails Are Like Stairs—and How to Take the Next Step

Creating an email program is a lot like adding a set of stairs to a building. Stairs are standard for multi-level buildings—much like an email program is standard for a marketing campaign.

Maybe you have a building where an elevator makes the most sense in addition to a stairwell. Sometimes, escalators make the most sense. It’s the same way for email—you’re building an email program with many different kinds of subscribers and you simply need to think past your basic “stairs.”
